Spiderman First Peek


http://blog.movies.yahoo.com/blog/406-first-photo-of-andrew-garfield-as-spider-man-revealed

It's not a remake, it's a reboot. (Reimagining rather than retelling) And since comic book stories are about the characters rather than which actor plays them in which movie (except maybe Hugh Jackman as Wolverine), I'm totally on board.

I'll admit right up front, Spiderman is not one of my favorite Marvel Heros. I'm all about the X-Men (which some nods to the Avengers, and the Fantastic Four) because it features ensemble roles (always my favorites) plus girls as heroes and not just as damsels in distress.

However this picture looks pretty promising. I'm already in love with the costume, which looks far more real and intriguing than the last version (which always felt digital to me even though it wasn't).

Is this for Spiderman 4 or a whole new set of Spiderman movies?

It's a complete reboot. Which means yes, it's a whole new set of movies.

Have you seen animated series "The Spectacular Spiderman"? Only having seen six episodes, I was utterly enthralled by its take on everyone's friendly neighborhood spiderman. Hands-down one of my favorite adaptations of comic-book material.

No, I haven't. Although I must say I did enjoy Spiderman when he showed up in the Ultimate X-Men line.
