The Full Trailer For ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3D’
Yeah, it’s a Spider-Man movie, you can say that much about it.
Sony has released the full trailer for their upcoming Spider-Man reboot, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3D’, and this is a trailer I’m torn on. There’s no reason for a Spider-Man reboot to the film franchise and advertising it “The Untold Story” seems so forced since the last thing moviegoers need is a Spidey origin tale. People know Spider-Man’s origins story, so going back and trying to tweak it ever so slightly seems unnecessary.
Instead of Norman Osborn we get Dr. Curt Conners (Rhys Ifans) who turns into the lizard. Mary Jane is swapped out for Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and there’s more added mystery into what happened to Peter’s parents, which was a non-issue in the earlier films, yet now there’s some mystery surrounding them (don’t care, dead parents make a hero better).
‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3D’ (yes, that’s the actual full title of the movie) looks polished and competent, but I just don’t care. Sony has basically said they don’t care about their Spider-Man franchise unless they can boss the director around and force whatever characters into the films that they feel sell better. I’m sure Andrew Garfield is a fine Peter Parker (even if I’ll never buy him as an outcast), and I love me some Emma Stone, but what if this movie doesn’t work out and they reboot the entire franchise once again. With so many other high profile superhero movies coming out, I’m just not the least bit interested in a story that I’ve kind of seen before as much as Sony wants to say otherwise.
