This is the first time I’ve ever been worried for a Spider-Man film. I wasn’t worried about Spider-Man 3 (everything leading up to the release looked solid, it just turns out that they gave Sam Raimi a bit too much freedom) and I wasn’t worried about Amazing Spider-Man (which actually seemed interesting but, the chopped out all the parts that made it interesting. The “untold story” that was so prevalent in the marketing leading up was left on the cutting room floor).
But this. This has all the makings of bad superhero film. I thought we, as a species, had gotten over the whole “too many ridiculous looking villains in one movie” thing. See Batman and Robin if you don’t know what I’m talking about.
This is it. Sony, it’s time to give Spider-Man back to Marvel, so they can work him into the Avengers universe.
Gravity - Trailer
Alfonso Cuarón’s first feature since 2006. I think it looks great, but like, there’s no way either of these two are going to survive right? This is the guy who directed Children of Men… the ending wasn’t exactly happy, and he’s not known for keeping characters alive.
World War Z - Trailer
I read this book. This looks nothing like it. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, it just needs to be pointed out.
I always thought Brad Pitt was going to be the journalist traveling around collecting stories from survivors. He’s not. He’s definitely doing something else.
I’m looking forward to Amazing Spider-Man (or Spider-Man 1A… I’m using a Back to the Future style alternate-timeline naming convention and applying it to these movies, because Marvel can claim ‘untold story’ all the want, but this does not exist in the same universe). I think I know where the story is going for the next two movies based on what they’re showing in the trailers and it’s parts of Peter Parkers life that you don’t often see.
Caution spoilers dating back to 1973 ahead.
The Avengers - Trailer
Well that certainly looks like The Avengers. Based on this trailer I’m not totally sure what is going to happen in the movie, but it seems like a lot is going on. Hopefully it’s more X-men 2 than X-men 3, if you know what I mean.
