Why I Already Like The New Spider-Man Movie

February 15, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Even though its not coming out until next summer, “The Amazing Spider-Man” already looks like it will be an improvement on the Tobey Maguire incarnation of the lovable web-slinger.

Here’s part of the reason why I’m getting impressed. This photo was just released by Sony:

And as pointed out on Collider, if you zoom in on the hands you can see something weird…

See those devices on his wrists? In the original comic books, Peter Parker was quite adept at chemistry and applied science (skills I appreciate). Although his radioactive spider bite gave him super human strength, agility, the ability to climb walls, as well as a “spidey-sense” that alerts him to danger, he did not have the ability to shoot web from his wrists.

Those devices were actually an invention of Peter Parker’s to enhance his spider-like abilities.

This concept was not in the first few Spiderman movies, which had Tobey Maguire actually shooting web from weird growths on his wrists.

Is it a fine point? Yes. But I like that this movie seems to be paying a bit more attention to detail. It also looks as though this reboot won’t be as campy as the previous Sam Raimi directed movies.

Nothing against Sam Raimi, but he should stick to Evil Dead and Xena: Warrior Princess type stuff.

    I’m also glad they are going back to the original Spider-man and making him unable to shoot web from his writs..I never liked that concept since it was a little too weird for my liking. So happy they are making the new Peter Parker work a little more to become Spider-man other then finding the perfect suit.

    idk why they have to remake this movie! They want to know why the economy is so bad! Why not save the money to help inprove the economy instead of remaking a movie that was just remaded! Goshh the other spider-man movies haven’t even been out for ten years! The other one where just fine! Ugghh it’s just annoying! That’s a movie I’m not going to waste my money to go see a movie I have at home! All it is, is a different actor! Everyhing else is the same! (WHY)?? Help improve the economy! I don’t know much about the economy! But I sure do know remaking a movie that dosent need to be remade it crazy! Because toby maguire did awesome!! DON’t NEED ANOTHER ONE! Mabey in like 6 more years!
