    Spidey Jokes

    by Dr Eric Vornoff

    well those people so desperate to hear Spidey wisecrack should be happy now, but shouldn't the jokes, you know, actually be funny?

    sony had better get these clips up with proper quality

    by rakesh patel

    cause at the moment its not doing the movie any favours imho. i really don't know about this movie. i don't feel any excitement for it. I'm sure it will make its money. but i don't think it's going to be spectactular Box office. i feel a reboot so quickly has made this feel lukewarm. KInda felt the same about Green Lantern from the stuff i saw Last year to be honest.

    You guys are honestly upset about a blinking light?

    by Queefer Sutherland

    Then don't see the movie, assholes. Keep watching your Tobey McGuire versions and don't leave the house. You'll do us all a favor that way. Forget this remake. The beloved original is still there, and unadulterated for those who like it. A remake won't change the original, it won't lessen its impact on you. As far as I'm concerned, remake everything! I want to see somebody else's take on a story. That's why I'm glad the next Batman film will be the last by Nolan. I want to see another filmmaker's take on the Batman legend. You fucking whiney bitches are simply pathetic. Sam Raimi's versions will still be there for you to fap with. You don't own the rights to the story so shut the fuck up and do some growing up. Remaking this story is not the giant cataclysmic event you make it out to be, blinking red lights or not. It will succeed or fail on its own merits and things will be what they are. If it's good, well then, bravo! If it's bad, it's bad. YOU DON'T HAVE TO SEE IT. You're probably the same ignorant fucktards who are shedding tears over the new Superman film, too. Goddamn, if you could see how really sad you are, you'd probably kill yourselves. But we're not that lucky, are we? And you'll still come here and shed your fucking tears and express your childish angst every time somebody messes with your fanboyish fap fare. And I'll be here to show how trivial and stupid you are, and believe me, your triviality and stupidity are legion.

    by pizzatheface

    I don't know how I can't be excited for a Spiderman movie, but I'm really not. And do we really need to retell his origin story? Don't we already know it? We're not that far removed from the first Spiderman movie.

    Spider-man being Spider-man. I missed that.

    by Rorschach1

    I don't understand why anyone is annoyed by the web-shooters flashing red. It's a smaller deviation from the comic than the organic web-shooters in Sam Raimi's trilogy. I bet this is going to be very good. Marc Webb is a fantastic director, and Andrew Garfield looks like he's actually having fun being Spider-man, which is half of the character. If blinking lights are such a turn-off for you, Christmas must be Hell.

  • April 2, 2012, 3:57 p.m. CST

    Alright, I'm in. Looks great!

    by CodeName

  • Sorry..Mark Webbs a Hack.Rami atleast sounds like(and actually does) love the material, that whoal thing with with him remembering a boxing match from Spider man 8,sounds like it was shoved in his mouth by some "marketing" coach, a checklist of "talking points"that he can spew out during interviews in the hopes of selling some kind of "Geek Cred" or whatever. Also snark doesn't always immediately translate into comedy,if not contextually balanced well, it could make him seem like a douche,Spider-man charms takes many cues from Errol Flyn and the like.He uses those jokes in a attempt to off set his fear of the situation while also "boring"into the mind of his opponents, making them want to kill him so bad that they begin to loose there cool and make mistakes.Think Muhammad Ali,mixed with Rodney danger field,zinger filled banter without seeming Cheap for its own sake,spidy must be funny yet vulnerable."snark" is more of a tony stark thing,they tryed 2 do the same thing with green lantern and it failed,because thats not Hal Jordan,and for the most part that not peter Parker/Spider man just my current thought on this shindig

    by professorjack

    I'm sorry it is. I know people are already repeating the marketing slogan of "no, this one is darker", its not. Its the same shit. And i know how fan boys need everything to be exactly like the source material, but its fuckin' stupid to have a teenager develop his own webbing. it just is. Not everything thought up in a 60s comic book is gold

    OMG blinking webshooters, Its such a bad movie

    by AshMcQ

    WTF is wrong with you guys? Who cares? Its a optical aid, because you don't have static images like in the comic book.

  • to give warning when he was running out of web fluid. It was when he built a 2nd gen web shooters made out of plastic so he could go through airport metal detectors. Strange that I would remember that, but it did happen in sometime after the Spiderman vs Wolverine mini-series where Ned Leeds died. Nerd out.

    I smell pine...

    by Darth Macchio

    But I think the thinking is still correct...the things I find dumb about this one are minimal...at least insofar as I'll wait to see how they develop it. I think the biggest fuckup...no matter what real or "sound alike" plants suggest, is the retconning of his parents death. You're fucking with what makes Peter, Peter and Spiderman, Spiderman. Thats fucking ASS. (period) But outside of that? Everything else is passable - yes, even the design of Lizard altho they better not use Ifans actual unedited "Lizard" voice that he put on one of those talk-shows a ways back...he even said it wasn't going to be passed through any effects. But damn if some of you aren't really pissed that people are talking smack about this movie. What gives?

    Spider-Man isn't a douchebag

    by daggor

    Garfield isn't hitting the right tone. Wisecracks in the suit, yes, but he's not a dick about it. The blinking shooters? Just stupid. It's for people with no imagination. So, actually, I assume the filmmakers have hit the nail on the head. The film is aiming for stupid douchebags, so the same lunkheads that saw Transformers 2 nine tomes will go see this, too.

  • that's actually astoundingly logical and long overdue. (i do not count the very bad scene of wolverine in the bathroom towards this.) these clips show one thing definitely - they've picked a point of view for the character. in that first clip he's definitely a different spidey than tobey, who i thought did a great job. i hope it's a cool flick.

  • ... people like Queefer Sutherland et al, you need to calm the F down and think for a minute. Do you honestly expect true fans of Spider-Man to sit by and say nothing when we have seen — what appears to be a vast majority of — TOTAL CRAP associated with this movie?? Silver slippers Spalding basketball suit Dumb redesigned costume (to sell merchandise) Lizard looks more like Generic Reptile Man Blinking LED web-shooters YOU CAN COUNT ME OUT

    Every one of those clips SUCK FUCKING ASS!

    by Jaster Mareel

    And this comes from a general supporter of the film. First of all, you'd think Sony could manage putting them up in the CORRECT FUCKING ASPECT RATIO! Plus, I hate fucking Scions now....and I had no opinion of them 5 minutes ago. Let's all clasp hands and pray that those 3 clips are not indicative of the finished film.

  • April 2, 2012, 5:26 p.m. CST

    the first clip

    by bigkinggorilla

    It just sort of makes spider-man look like a dick. If the guy kept talking and spider-man shot his mouth with webbing so he couldn't talk and then made a wisecrack, well then I would feel like I was watching spider-man. Instead spider-man seems to be basically torturing the guy, hitting him in the dick?, with webbing after he already has him restrained. I want spidey to joke, but I feel like the jokes should at least be funny.

The only thing that could take this lower is a cameo of Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin and hiring Brett Ratner to do some 'post production' lol

    by cookepuss

    The foley is pathetic and the video quality is questionable. Going clip by clip.... The audio is totally unintelligible in the 1st clip. Peter gives up his identity in the 2nd one. The 3rd one is way too similar in tone to what FOX did in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which isn't a great sign. Not looking good so far.

    I love Spiderman

    by WINONA_RYDERS_PUSSY_JUICE

    Who doesn't love Spiderman? Raimi's trilogy was one of the most successful franchises in movie history. So why did they slash the budget and create this half-assed wanna-be Spiderman? More like Spider-shit amirite? Spiderman 2 wasn't dark and gritty trying to ride Nolan's jock, no, it was Raimi's style and it was massively successful. So what is this wanna-be dark knight bullshit? This wisecracking Spiderman looks like an actor dressed in a rubber suit trying to act like Spiderman but he's not funny and comes off as a tool. Could it have anything to do with the hack direction and low budget makes it look like an episode of Night Court? Fuck this movie.

  • I think I'll wait for a real trailer instead of this weird stuff. These clips are not selling me the movie at all.

  • April 2, 2012, 6:10 p.m. CST

    Looks pretty good to me

    by hulkiest

    Well the first and third clips did at any rate. Spider Strength! I'm happy to see an exploration of just exactly how strong Peter has become. Raimi's films were exasperating in that regard. A guy who can survive 20 story drops can certainly beat the crap out of a middle aged guy with mechanical arms. To say nothing of a professional wrestler. Throughout the Raimi films I was always, saying "How strong or weak is Spiderman?" His strength seemed to ebb and flow depending on the scene. And yeah, I actually laughed at Spiderman toying with the thief. That was actually funny. Looking forward to it.

    I was on the fence

    by VoiceOfSaruman

    but those clips are awful. And it's not just the little red lights. I'll catch this on DVD in a year or two. I like the actor (and never loved Maguire) but they really had to knock this out of the park to make this work so close in time to the Raimi trilogy (and its terrible third act.) I don't see anything, anything at all from anything promotional connected with this film to get me interested. Maybe this is Spidey for a new generation, great, but I'm too old for this shit. And it was a really bad marketing move to have these clips get out there first in such terrible, terrible format.

    by Queefer Sutherland

    has never thoroughly read the comics. Depending on the writer and the current mood at the time, Spiderman exhibited all the usual human traits. And his costume changed, too. Spiderman evolved. Nobody agrees on what Spiderman's costume should look like. No matter what they did, plenty of idiots would still complain because they're just plain unhappy. Criticizing this movie for small changes on what you view as canon implies an undeserved feeling of ownership over the character. I don't care what you say about the film after you've seen it. Then your opinion, no matter how much I may disagree, will be valid. Right now, any opinion strongly held suggests a character defect, because it sure as hell isn't based on experience (as in having see the movie!) Now, that character defect may or may not be pathologically crippling in some ways. It varies in degrees with each person. So there's hope for some of you. And I'm not excluding myself from that description, by the way. I also have a character defect– I tell the cold hard truth. And damned if that don't make a bunch of you hate me. That's awesome.

    I mean...the blinking webshooters were CLEARLY shown in the trailer

    by BlackBauer0320

    I'm quite puzzled by the outcry based on these clips. That being said, the quality and selection of the stuff that's come out for this, trailers notwithstanding, is a little embarrassing on Sony's part.

  • April 2, 2012, 10:14 p.m. CST

    He was always a smartass, just not over-the-top about as in that clip

    by MooseMalloy

  • I really don't feel like going back to the drawing board with this character. I haven't read any of the comics, so I won't know whether it's more or less faithful than Raimi's version. I'm just not in the mood to take the character back to high school and watch the origin story all over again. No changes in the little details (like the source of the webbing) can be important enough to warrant this kind of a remake/reboot/reset of an origin story that was quite clearly told and almost universally embraced within the last decade.

    And YET AGAIN....Spidey is only shown at night!

    by Jaster Mareel

    Yeah ummm.....this isn't fucking Batman guys. Spider-Man is a DAYTIME hero. Sure he does stuff at night ON OCCASSION, but aside from that 1st person view from the first trailer, which for all we know was only created for the trailer, we haven't seen him do anything in the fucking daylight! This is concerning.

    by notcher

    Cuz if they are this movie is in BIG fucking trouble. Not ONE clip so far has looked remotely good. The first clip, are you serious, is that supposed to be funny? Ugh, lame, very lame. Not excited AT ALL. Bring on the real movie of the summer, where the fuck is BATMAN?

  • April 3, 2012, 12:20 a.m. CST

    I will admit though

    by Queefer Sutherland

    Those are some pretty pointless clips, and the quality was terrible. If this is what they're really making us watch, it's very bad marketing on the company's part. You don't give somebody a peak and let them down. There HAS to be better scenes. Very very bad marketing. Maybe worse than John Carter, and that's saying a lot. So I'll decide after I see it, if it's a turd or not. I like the cast better, though Cliff Robertson was pretty damned cool. Still, Martin Sheen is nothing to laugh at. We'll see...

  • April 3, 2012, 12:27 a.m. CST

    This movie WILL be the best live-action Spider-Man

    by haterscrote

    movie made to date IMO. The casting alone ensures that. Raimi's attempts were mediocre at best, even Thor was better than Spider-man 1 & 3. Two was saved by the good character design and casting of Doc Ock, though even it suffered from a average screenplay.

    Is Raimi the "alpha and omega" for spider-man movies?!

    by Keith Hayes

    WTF?! I won't comment on all the whining about this movie from people that apparently go out of their way to comment on all news associated with it ,even though they stated months ago they won't see it and its going to "suck" which is hilarious to me! we get it!(we,meaning the people out there that actually want to see this reboot because we love the character and are thankful that we can see a different take on him) I just don''t understand why you people are checking clips and commenting on something you never supported from the start. It makes very little sense. Whenever I have no interest in something posted I don't follow news on the subject(why would I?) AICN has loads of posts about many projects I don't care for and funny thing is I don't click on them. Nobody is saying you shouldn't post your opinions but how many times can you complain about the same subject? and why do you think anyone that supports it would give 2 shits if you plan on seeing this movie or not? Not to mention the fact that the fact that the movie has yet to even be released. I mean really..I suggest you ask yourself "why am I even checking Amazing Spider-man movie clips? " if you think it's such a travesty. Sorry for the rant but these posts shitting on the movie are getting extremely annoying to me.

    Regarding the Quality of the Clips...

    by Pawprint

    When I saw these clips on Blastr (YESTERDAY), it was quite clearly explained that these clips are supposed to be accessed by scanning a picture on the back of a cereal box with a smartphone - like a QR code. What we're actually seeing here is someone filming a smartphone running the clip, using a tablet (iPad?), then uploaded to YouTube.

  • Screw that. Raimi beat us and you wanted more? I dug that second clip, if Spidey's spider-sense is triggered, that's how he would go off.

    Fucking Brilliant...

    by kubricksnutsack

    ...we now have Spider-Man: The TV Series. Thanks for that Marc Webb. Wise-cracking Spidey is great in the comic book, because it is a comic book and the wisecracks propel the story along and give the brain something to process. No dialogue and just action in comic book panels doesn't work - that's why there's usually a grunt or a wisecrack in this instance. In the "real world" environs, constantly wise-cracking Spidey comes across as an arrogant, whiney, arsehole. But I am hoping there's balance in this movie as I have no issue with Spidey having a fast mouth. But if every time he tackles the baddies, he starts make jokes a mile a minute, he'll get tiring pretty quickly. We've all had the work colleague who makes wisecracks ALL THE FRIGGING TIME - just remember how irritating that is. But the whole thing looks like a TV movie. I love Spider-Man (I even like Spider-Man III) and really wanted to get behind this, but I am having real doubts about it now.

    LMAO "Spidey was never over-the-top like this"! LOL For real??? Go read a comicbook! Spidey doesn't only joke when he fighting badguys to gain the upperhand or push aside his nervousness. He also jokingly torments street level criminals. What we saw in the first clip is classic Spidey. Its what he does. Too bad Raimi made it seem all Spidey do is mope around and be all emo!

    by LeeM

    I know the web shooters have been redesigned several times. but i remember there was one comic that showed how they worked and was based on an earlier concept before peter switched to the new multi cartridge shooters. They had l.e.d. red lights that would indicate when it was running low on the web fluid. So I have no problem with it. except if he was trying to hide in the dark they would expose him.

    Marvel Movies, Secret Identities, and Actors

    by Atkinson

    It seems to me that with these Marvel movies over the past dozen years, the secret identities of the characters doesn't seem to matter anymore. People know that Stark is Iron Man, people know that Steve Rogers is Captain America, Donald Blake is more of an afterthought for Thor, and Peter Parker was practially losing his mask every 5 seconds during Tobey Maguire's run as Spider-Man. Now this new Spider-Man is freakin' using his powers without a mask on a New York City subway!!! Is there some contractual agreement now for Marvel Comics-based movies that the actors don't need the masks as much anymore? Are actors that insecure?

    by rev_skarekroe

    Of the characters you mention, only Spidey actually needs a secret identity in their film versions. Steve Rogers was in suspended animation for 60 years. Why would he need to hide anything? Star is an arrogant thrill-seeker. He's going to want people to know about the adventures he has. Thor was banished to Earth for arrogance, but Odin didn't force him to adopt a human guise, so that's not something he would particularly care about. We don't know what the context of the scene in the subway is. Perhaps he jumps on the roof of the train due to reflexive action from his spidey-sense.

    Some of you people make me sick!!!

    by Christopher

    You know, the people on this site pissed me off so much, that I had to sign up just to comment. I have been coming to this site for years, and have continually read the fanboy drivel a lot of you spew out, just for the hell of it. Let me say this, I have been a fan of Spider-Man since Amazing Fantasy 15, all the way till till Marvel unleashed the hell that was "Brand New Day". Like everyone, I was in a comfy movie seat on May 3rd of 2002 to see Spider-Man come to life on the big screen. I smiled in awe, seeing my favorite webslinger swinging around and.... wait, that's about all that I remember fondly of that film. Spider-Man 2 was better, because there was a better villian, and more swinging around by you friendly neighborhood CGI artist..? Point being, the only good things about Raimi's films in retrospect, is the fact that aside from a dozen cartoon takes, and a 70's live action series, it hadn't been done before. Tobey looked the part in the first film. I repeat THE FIRST FILM!!!! He however, did not act like Peter (or Spider-Man) for the rest of the series. The sad thing about His portrayal of Peter/Spider-Man is he finally started to get things right... when he was playing emo Spidey in that horrible piece of goat sh*t that was Spider-Man 3. Wisecracks, self deprecating humor, and pathos are what make the character. Raimi seemed to latch on to the "With great power comes great responsibility" angle, and not let go. Spider-Man is more than just sulking around and crying. "Settle down kiddo and let the grown folks talk" and "Here's your change" is all Tobey and Raimi could muster for witty and funny Spidey? Webshooters are a staple of the character. It shows how smart he actually is (was recruited by the Avengers/Shield at one point). It also adds edge in his fights, and further shows that even without the webbing, Spider-Man is quite... well, amazing (Read " The Other" and how awesome "someone" without webslinging ability can be) The first clip reminds me of Untold tales of Spider-Man when he was first starting out and getting his confidence. He was a lot angrier in the beginning of his career, doubted his abilities (getting beat by The Shocker anyone?) so it doesn't surprise me he cut loose on someone who would clearly have used that knife on an innocent (it isn't like he actually hurt the guy.) The flashing webshooters are alright with me. Ben Reilly had a similar setup with his webshooters and Spider-Stingers and Tracers. The spraypainting his name as a calling card, is different but I like it too. I would have loved for them to have incorporated the Spidey-Signal into the film as well but we'll see how it works out. Either way, this film actually feels like what I had hoped Spider-Man (2002) had felt like. Instead of a complete throwback (with some changes) to the Lee/Ditko/ run of the 60's, it feels like they'll touch on some of those elements, but move forward in the evolution of the character (like the comics did) to the Kirby/Romita areas and beyond. Peter Parker WAS like Tobey, but evolved to be more confident and edgier (he had a motorcycle, not a scooter in college) to the point of being a Joe everyman, instead of the constant pushover Tobey milked for three films. Even when he did go emo (won't spoil what happens with Green Goblin and Gwen for those that don't know) a darker Spider-Man emerged not too long after (as well as the return of Mary Jane Watson who didn't have snaggle teeth in the comics I might add.) Either way people, shut up, read some comics, and let Marc Webb do his thing. Even if the movie sucks, at least no one can take from him the fact that the character is finally being done in a more classic and contemporary take more in keeping with the source material (fyi there are books about Peter feeling abandoned by his parents, but expressing love for his aunt and uncle.) Either way people, don't pretend you won't go see this. Hell, maybe I'll be sitting next to some of you!

    by Christopher

    Forgot to mention, the fact that Ben Reilly (for a time) was preferred by fans due to him being more like Peter Parker than Peter Parker was during the early to mid 90's. I'll agree that the Clone Saga wasn't great. Good thing that isn't being included in the film. Furthermore, you realize that by your statement, you have slammed John Romita, and Jack Kirby right? Not to mention a whole host of other talented writers, and artists who have kept Spider-Man alive and fresh for years. Yup, I'm defending things that suck alright. I don't think you know much past the cartoons and Raimi films my friend. If you did, you would be more pleased with what has been shown to us thus far. A more faithful, yet fresh take on the character, but I'll digress and simply go support the film.

    So basically what you are saying is, only diehard fans will appreciate a character being done the way he was intended to be done? I somehow find fault in your logic. Even if you have only seen the animated series from the 90's, you'd appreciate the fact that Spider-Man was a funny guy, and that didn't translate well to the Raimi films. Wait, what am I saying? It didn't happen at all!!! As for the general public, the same people who embraced Kick-Ass (whose costume stayed pretty close to his literary version) as well as the people who embraced the departure of Wesley Snipes' version of Blade will come to see this film. You also need to remember that Spider-Man (2002) came out 10 years ago. There is yet another generation of comic book readers who have come about since then, raised off the principles of change (The Original Ultimate Spider-Man and Pre BND 616 Amazing Spider-Man) who found the original films to be campy, and desire a more faithful spin (pun intended) on their favorite character.

    Just for the record

    by WINONA_RYDERS_PUSSY_JUICE

    Most people don't give a fuck about the comic books. It's not exactly a billion dollar industry. Kids like Spider-man cartoons, toys, television shows, and movies. So what if Raimi's Spider-man wasn't exactly like the comic book? A small percentage of the movie audience has ever read one. Including me. I've never read one comic book in my life but I've seen almost every comic book movie ever made. They may have tried to capture the personality of the comic book Spider-man here, but in my opinion he just comes off as a douche-bag. I'm sure the fact that I loath everything about this reboot has influenced my judgement. And fuck the christmas lights on his shooters, those are fucking wack. I agree.

    And don't go and see it. The movie will make money regardless of your contribution. As for your comment about the comic industry, I will not begin to share with you how truly wrong you really are. Between the Video Game and Comic industry, the market has grown beyond figures that even I can fathom. Why do you think that so many studios are quick to adapt a comic for the big screen (or a graphic novel you didn't even know was one, but enjoyed the film anyway?) So please, don't go see the film. Don't pick up a comic book, but don't assume you speak for the majority. I mean, if you truly believe your statement, please feel free to visit Boston in spring (PAX) or San Diego, New York, Baltimore, or Washington during the summer (comic con.) Also feel free to ask any kid who acts more like Spider-Man. Tobey, or Spectacular Spider-Man from the animated series. Most will point you toward Spectacular Spider-Man (or the 90's animated version) and will openly admit they enjoyed the webshooting and swinging of the film, and nothing more. Some of you people really crack me up with your comments. I'm sure some of you are the same people who bitched about Nolan's take on Batman. Just wait for the film to hit the open market, word of mouth and reviews to spread before forming an opinion. I'll admit there are some things I don't understand in regards to changes made in the film, but guess what? I'm willing to look past it if I actually get a Spider-Man film, and not simply 2 hours of a silent CGI charater who happens to be wearing a Spider-Man suit.

    Considering he built these webshooters, I am sure there is a reason for them to blink. Perhaps it is (and I'm sure it will be) a proto design of his webshooters. Spider-Man has been working on various forms of his Webshooters for years. The originally weren't Spider-Tracers or Stingers. Hell, there wasn't even impact webbing in the beginning. I look forward to seeing how Peter actually built these things.

    misterdarkmatter, with all due respect....

    by Jaster Mareel

    Comic have not and are not likely to regain the glory of the 80's. Back then comics were MASSIVE. I'm not really sure why. Maybe kids that grew up on them in teh 60's were then adults and prospering due to the economic growth of the time and comics filled a unique niche? Back then video games were relatively primative and really only worth a damn at the arcades, which were also prospering. We had the original Nintendo in there and that started a whole new wave of video game enthusiasm, mainly by consolidating gamers that had previously been split by half a dozen semi-crappy systems. There was a lull in superhero paraphenalia in general in the 80's. The only superhero films that came out during that period were the preposterously bad Superman III and IV. I think maybe Condorman was in 81 or so. But superheroes were thriving in the comic book shops. A good comic might run 9 million copies. Nowadays even the heavy hitters rarely crack 1 million. I more or less gave up on comics mid-run of One More Day. When I stopped buying, that was actually looking like a pretty good story. Once I found out how it ended I was glad I had quit while I was ahead. Up until then I was buying $40-$50 per week of comics. All the Batmans, JLA, Ant-Man (spectacular run), Superman, Iron Man, Spidey, etc. But when I quit, all the good storylines seem to have ended. I think Blackest Night was just gearing up, but otherwise Bruce Wayne was dead, Steve Rodgers was dead....total bullshit. Anyway, just had to be a geek for a minute.

I will admit to (and already did) jumping off the bandwagon when Brand New Day came about.

    @ spewbacca Thanks for reading sir

    by Christopher

    Thanks for the feedback. There were two characters as a child I looked up to (aside from wanting my father to be Optimus Prime). Those two characters were Batman and Spider-Man. I will be the first to admit that I can be a fanboy. I flipped sh*t when I heard about X-Men: First Class but went to see it anyway. Guess what? It wasn't a great film, but I found things about it to enjoy (the relationship between Charles and Erik was altered yet well done.) With this film I could argue about the location of the Spiderbite, or the fact that Peter Parker has brown eyes, stands 5'10 and weighs 165lbs (a farcry from Garfield) but why bother? If they are going to bring a more believable character to the big screen than the attempts made before, I'll let those things go, if a good story, classic villian, and a more faithful take on the character is presented to me for my 12 bucks (plus snacks and beverage.) It is so easy to become such a fanboy that it becomes blantantly obvious that no matter what is done, you won't be happy. The funny thing is, even movie fans can be fanboys. I own the Spider-Man Ultimate blu ray boxset. Why? Because it is Spider-Man. Did I hate Spider-Man 3? No. I didn't enjoy it, but I found things about the film I truly enjoyed (James Franco was awesome in my opinion and needed more screen time.) I also found things that were disappointing (Raimi built us all up for an appearance of The Lizard that never came.) Overall, I have watched all of them multiple times because although the whole do not respresent great films in my opinion, there were elements and moments that made me forget I was watching the films from at the Lowes theater in White Marsh Maryland (or my living room in Fells Point) and was actually back home in New York City (Brooklyn Born and raised) watching what I had always hoped to see as a child. Spider-Man swinging through the bussling streets and buildings of lower Manhattan. My hope is this feeling grows even larger when I go to the theater this July, and watch another directors take on the character. Will I love everything (Peters parents aren't SHIELD agents?) probably not, but I think enough will carry over from the 616 universe and Ultimate Universe to satisfy (and entertain) me. I hope to see some of you True Believers back here after the film to discuss what worked, and what didn't. Hopefully we'll have more of the former than the latter. If anyone wants to talk comics or movies that doesn't involve crucifying a film before it even gets a chance to hit theaters (some have already seen the film and loved it, fyi) Feel free to message me, and follow me on Google+ (or FB) I leave with this question to all who feel this film is a dud. Can you honestly believe you could do any better adapting a story to the big screen, while remaining faithful, and not simply making a page for page transition of 60 years worth of story arcs (Watchmen only worked because it was a limited series... that started on Oct 12th, my birthday!!!) Seriously, if you can do better than what Marc Webb appears to be offering, go to film school, graduate, cut your gums in the industry, wait another 10 years and try it yourself. *Cheers*

    @ winona_ryders_pussy_juice Says you

    by Christopher

    Clearly you have not read the comics if you honestly believe that. Although some elements have been changed, the rest remains true: Peter's Parents died in a Plane Crash (or so we've been led to believe) and were secretly SHIELD agents, back when the agency is new. Gwen Stacey was Peter's first love. They met in College during a period of time when Peter was definitely more confident and cocky. Kurt Connors was obsessed with his research in generating new limbs, which led to him becoming The Lizard. Captain Stacey was not a big fan of Spider-Man and felt the police were the only ones that should be upholding the law and protecting the innocent (a fact he upheld until the day he died) Peter made his own costume. He made it (back in 1962) out of theater materials he found from Midtown High School. Clearly adapting to the times means better materials to choose from than tights. Peter made the material for, and his webshooters in two panels!!! I look forward to how the fluid and webshooters are developed in greater detail. Peter's first mission fighting crime took place at night, when he chased down the man who broke into his house in Forest Hill Queens and killed his uncle. Peter idolized Kurt Connors. I believe their relationship will be altered, but will reflect that in the film. Truly, the way Peter and Doc Oct were shown interacting, is truly a fusion the second piece of what was shown to be the relationship between Peter and Kurt Connors in the Raimi films. From all of this sir, since you clearly have read, tell me how this has nothing to do with, or is not being directly inspired by the comics. I mean hell, Captain Stacey was barely a foot note in the Raimi films (as was Gwen.)

    what

    by WINONA_RYDERS_PUSSY_JUICE

    I've never read a comic book, ever. I think Spider-man is bad-ass though. I just think that the comic book fanbase takes their comics a little bit too seriously when it comes to these movie adaptations. I can definitely agree with a lot of complaints, when you look at the big picture, a film should be at least somewhat faithful to the source material. But when it comes to stuff like the organic or non-organic web-shooters I really could give a shit, it has no bearing what-so-ever on how good a movie is. It's a nit-pick. Now there's one thing about this movie that I agree they fucked up big-time when it comes to the comics and that's the look of the Lizard. Not sure about the lab coat but his head looks fucking retarded. Some dude tried to link a picture of him from an old comic book that's supposed to have a similar humanoid head but it's not similar at all. The Lizard in the comics has a monster head, not a human head. This Lizard has a human face, it's utterly retarded. As for the lab coat I don't know, it looks cooler on 2d paper, not sure if it would work in the movie but I'm all for the lab coat as well. I predict this movie is going to suck ass. I'll come back here and eat a bunch of crow if I'm wrong if it makes you blind fanboys feel better. Seriously look at these clips, they look horrible! Spiderman looks like shit! He's a skinny punk with a shitty looking suit that looks way worse than Raimi's costume. Raimi's costume was perfect. This looks like ASS. A lot of this comes down to the lower budget and having less talented designers involved in this project. And this director, fuck man, really? He's in way over his head.

    The tone of the humor in the first clip is completely wrong.

    by kevred

    I know Spidey's humor very well. I've read the comic starting with his very first appearance. This bully-style, overacting, snarky humor is not remotely Spidey's type of humor. If they're doing the 'Spidey starts out as a jerk, then learns some humility' bit, and this is the initial jerk phase, then fine. But if this is their idea of Spidey's fully-formed wisecracks, they have got it wrong. And there's really no excuse to get it wrong, as you have decades of one-liners and interactions in print to emulate. Spidey wisecracks and mocks all the time, but not in this appalling, irony-drenched, theatrical way. It's verbal and smart, not this corny, bullying physical comedy. I can't judge how things go in the actual film, but I hope this isn't an indication of their idea of the essence of the character. Peter Parker can be a bit of a hothead, but he's a good kid. He's not a bully.

    Actually, the tone is on par with Peter from the Ultimate Universe when he first started his career. It isn't on par (but honestly not terribly far away) from the 616 universe Peter. Don't forget that Ultimate peter said "F*ck You" to his uncle during their last fight before he died. definitely an angrier more modern take on an angsty teenager.

    These were leaked clips. The cleaner HD versions will be released shortly. I think everyone needs to chill out. I swear that some of you have less patience than my 8 month old Pit Bull puppy. They leaked it, to give people who are anticipating this film a taste. Clearly these clips shouldn't have been leaked if the quality was what it was, but sadly so many people are so hungry for news and updates (and frankly want everything NOW NOW NOW) that websites like this (who rely on hits in order to remain relevant) need to post as much new news and info as possible, leading you to what you see above you. And even after doing so, you people are still not satisfied. Truly sad....

    darth_meh: Why is Spidey red and blue.

    by Dr_PepperSpray

    Spidey's colors are Red White and Blue and patriotism probably has something to do with it, but also you have some color theory in there given that Red and Blue are both primary colors, and yellow was typically used for the background. There's no question who the hero is in crowd of villains is. Spider-man's color scheme lifts him off the page. Also printers were probably limited by their color choices at the time. <P> Of course I'm just speculating but I'll bet I'm not too far off the mark.

    by Pat

    Just merely alright. Not horrible (Wolverine), not transcendent of the genre (Dark Knight), probably more like Captain America levels of alright. No spectacle here folks. The tone and details will be slightly off, but not too much that the general audience will notice but geeks will. The lizard CG will be completely lame but hopefully the Lizard himself will be kept to a minimum and we'll get more of Dr. Connors. The tremendous acting talent involved will all be game and put the material over more than it has any right to being over. It will make $200 mil and there will be a sequel in 2 years.

    by Joe Plumber

    Oh, that's right, there's only the one romcom.

  • IMO, Ultimate Spidey is utter garbage, a bunch of flimsy, empty mods to an already-classic world. It's poorly written, poorly drawn, and will hopefully be relegated to the dustbin of history before long. The so-called "616 universe" (or, as I call it, the entire decades-long history of an iconic character) is the only reason that any of these characters and stories exist and succeed as films. The Ultimates stuff is just Marvel pandering to the lowest common denominator of current pop culture, latter-day weak writing & drawing talent thinking they know better than the greats, and I don't buy it. So, that's my opinion. I'm sure there are some who disagree.

  • April 4, 2012, 11:26 a.m. CST

    No disrespect, but your logic is flawed

    by Christopher

    The very foundation of the current movie version of the Marvel Universe is based off of a fusion of both the 616 universe and the Ultimate universe. For example: Nick Fury, Thor, and the reason for Thunderbolt Ross wanting Banner's research for the Hulk film. All of these stories are derived from arcs within the Ultimate line, laced with classic elements of the 616 universe. As for Ultimate Spider-Man being garbage, there are over 400 million fans who would disagree with you. In actuality, the Ultimate line revived a fledging Marvel Comics back when it was introduced in 2002. Brendis and company did a lot of character development, and streamlining of storylines that were convoluted and not easily relatable, in their attempt to revamp old story arcs (example: the symbiote arc and clone saga). By the time of Ultimate Peter Parkers death, he was the very paradigm of what it was to be a hero, and his death shock the Ultimate universe more than anything to occur in the mainstay 616 universe (namely the horrible Brand New Day reboot.) Peter did start off immature, brash, and arrogant, as he came to understand the true extent of his powers, but pathos and maturity quickly followed, as he began to resemble a younger and wiser version of his 616 counterpart. To the point that some life lessons that took Peter "616" Parker decades to grasp, Ultimate "16 year old" Peter picked up on within the first 20 issues. Because of this, and the fact that Ultimate Peter is dead, and I'm not a big fan of the current 616 Peter so much anymore, I am happy to welcome yet another interpretation of the Ultimate version of the character. Miles Morales (the current Ultimate Spider-Man) is a cool character, but I still have a soft spot for that young science nerd from Forest Hill Queens.

  • April 4, 2012, 11:35 a.m. CST

    As for the greats you speak of...

    by Christopher

    Spider-Man at a time was so oversaturated, that Marvel had a tough time deciding what to do with the character during the 70's and the early 80's. There were at least two decades of throwaway story arcs, which led to the 90's attempt by Marvel to out "Grant Morrison" Grant Morrison before he became prominent. The Clone saga, although originally intriguing, became one of the greatest embarrasments to Marvel in its entire history of print. It almost bankrupted the company. Refreshing stories like "The Other" started off well, but ultimately led nowhere, as yet again, the character took a back burner to the era of "Event" stories. "Back in Black" was a terrible marketing scheme which sullied a lot of fans, and did further damage when it led to "Brand New Day". This is the work of the greats you are clinging to. If you refer to Kirby, Romita Sr and Stan Lee, you are referencing the first 9 years of the characters run (1962 Amazing Fantasy 15). After that, how many Sinister Six battles did we need? How many times did Spider-Man need to become Captain Universe? How many life or death battles with Kraven, Doc Oct, and Electro did we need before everyone realized the character wasn't growing, and that there were no real consequences for anything that occured in said stories? The Ultimate line changed all of this. They did it by refreshing the character for modern times. They did it by altering the relationship he had with Gwen, Harry, and Mary Jane. And ultimately (no pun intended) they did it by actually killing the character, bringing everything full circle in the message that with great power comes great responsibility. I think you should buy some trades and treat yourself to the story in full, instead of being bias, and holding on to possibly clouded memories of yester year. Trust me, aside from His marriage, the loss of a child, and the conflict in "The Other" Spider-Man in the 616 hasn't been fresh in years, to the point of becoming nothing more than a mascot.

  • April 4, 2012, 11:39 a.m. CST

    To date...

    by Christopher

    The best representation of Ultimate Spider-Man in a form outside of the comics, was The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. It shows a younger, less refined, Peter learning to deal with his new powers. What made that show great, was they did what the Marvel movies have done. They laced elements of the 616 universe in with the Ultimate line (example: the symbiote story arc) If you enjoyed that show Kevred, I don't think you'll have much problem with the method in which they will be portraying the character. You (and I) might have some issues with the actual film as a whole, but I suppose we'll have to wait and see. I am optimistic more than I am skeptical.

  • Like most modern-day remakes, 'Ultimate Spider-Man' was shit. It was just a whole bunch of twatting around for twatting around's sake. Nothing more than an ongoing 'What If?' storyline. OMG, what if the Green Goblin was actually, like, a big monster?! What if Venom turned up much earlier because he's popular?! What if Gwen St- oh just fuck off already. I gave it up to #50 then chucked them all in the bin.

  • April 5, 2012, 10:51 a.m. CST

    Really a shame you jumped off around issue 50

    by Christopher

    Also a shame you feel as you do, considering the most talked about topic on most Marvel Comic panels from 2002 -2011 was where they were getting their ideas. Let's be honest here, Green Goblin in the 616 universe was a great character. He became muddled around the time they decided to introduce four different goblins into the continium. He was much more affective as the leader of H.A.M.M.E.R, and dealing with the growing evil that was building up within him. Ultimate Green Goblin from a genetic standpoint, made more sense. Based solely on the continued theme within the Ultimate universe, it was no longer about Atom (Gamma) bomb radiation, and more to do with genetics. Something Stan Lee himself endorsed. The only reason why Radiation was the cause for pretty much everything Marvel, was due to the climate the world was in during WWII and post WWII. Experimenting with genetic alterations resulted in him becoming a monster. To me, that seemed more realistic to me. (and millions of other fans). The beauty of the Ultimate universe was not being bound by continuity, enabling them to refresh characters, and embark on arcs that didn't feel so also-ran. Ultimate Hulk was the biggest example of this. Instead of a simple bomb explosion, he was transformed due to Bruce Banner attempting to appease the military with his version of the Super Solider serum (as not to lose funding) merged his unstable formula with a sample of Steve Rogers blood. I mean, that sounds more believable than being over exposed to Gamma Rays in a lab (Bill Bixby) or Getting blown to hell saving Rick Jones (although I do like that origin too.) Characters could die (Ultimate X-Men and Ultimate Spider-Man). Nothing was promised to be the same (The true nature of Nick Fury.) Marvel became fresh again, without going the 90's route and ripping off the Jim Lee (Wildforce) style of storytelling, which was popular back then. Ultimates fell apart for me, I'll admit, as did Ultimate X-Men, but Ultimate Spider-Man remained a beacon for what a hero should be. His character development and growth eclipsed the 616 universe with his brief time as a Superhero. He stood as an example all acrossed the Ultimate universe, and died in a way that even 616 Peter Parker would have been proud of. Go read Amazing Spider-Man now, and then read back issues of Ultimate Spider-Man, and tell me who feels more authentic to you. If this were 20 years ago, I would say 616 universe Pete, but that changed after the early 90's clone saga, and definitely changed during his Avenger days and Brand New Day.
