The Amazing Spider-Man is set to be released Summer 2012
Hollywood these days doesn’t seem to be taking many chances huh?
Another day another sequel or should I say quad-quel? This is the fourth Spider-man movie made in a decade but instead of a continuation of the original trilogy, that idea is scrapped due to directing and cast conflicts. Sony Pictures has decided to reboot and replace the director and entire cast. The lead hero is now played by Andrew Garfield whose acting performance I’ve seen in The Social Network(he did a great job but comic book movies? No thanks.). But with a country still in the rut of a recession, party members refusing to come to terms with each other, and an ever-growing record debt who could blame them? Eh, I could still blame them. Yesterday I was sitting with my brother in his car hotly debating this topic for the entire twenty-minute long drive. “They’re only doing this to make more money!” I hotly accused. His main argument, “Hey these super hero movies make huge profits and with the economy the way it is how can you say it’s a bad move?” It is a valid point but I still don’t want movie executives so blatantly trying to stuff their hands into my wallet. What happened to loyalty for the fan base? I could confidently say that true Spidey fans are not happy that Hollywood is trampling over their favorite hero.
