I realize many of you have already seen this trailer, but I don’t care. I’ve been terribly behind on my blog and only now am I catching up. Anyway, The Amazing Spider-Man. Directed by Marc Webb, I feel as though I’m one of the few people to be captivated with the new Spider-Man movie. Webb, known more for his art films, certainly brings a new feel to the superhero film franchise. Unfortunately, I’m not sure everyone is ready for such a change. As a die-hard Spidey fan, I’m intrigued to see a story revolving around Peter Parker’s parents and Pete’s general geekiness. With a darker look, I can totally understand the intention. Most every Spider-Man story revolving around the parents of Peter Parker has been dark and kind of angsty. As for the villain of the movie, the Lizard, I have problems watching scientist Curt Connors acting like an insane megalomaniac, when in the comics all he really wanted was to re-grow his arm.
