The Amazing Spider-Man Teaser Trailer

We are a spoiled bunch. 

To illustrate that point I submit the case of The Amazing Spider-Man. It seemed like yesterday when the world was celebrating the big screen, big budget, live action debut of Spider-Man on the big screen. That was soon followed by criticism. Fans were unhappy with the choice of Sam Raimi as director.There was a costume controversy, the whole organic web-shooter controversy. All of which soon passed. When the film became a hit it sparked one great sequel...followed by one terrible one.

Which brought about a reboot. Which brings us to The Amazing Spider-Man. The latest sentiment for the film is not good. Most of the controversy surrounds the casting of Andrew Garfield. Critics are disappointed that Sony cast an older British actor to play a teen Peter Parker. There is also no Mary Jane Watson in this reboot, the female love interest is the less liked Gwen Stacy.

Some die hard geeks are now calling for a boycott of the film. The thinking being that if the film bombs at the box-office, Sony Pictures will give up the property and the rights will revert back to Marvel Studios. Not a bad proposition, considering that would allow Spider-Man to interact with the rest of the Marvel Studios characters. But as we have seen with The X-Men movies, studios are not stupid. They know a good property when they see it. Upcoming reboots of The Fantastic Four and Daredevil prove that point. The question is... will they EVER get it right?

Where do I stand? Well... as much as I like the idea of seeing Spider-man trying to stop a raging Hulk or seeing Spidey team-up with Iron Man on a mission... I'll reserve judgement. Ultimately, I just want to see a good movie. 

The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans and Martin Sheen. It is directed by Marc Webb.  It is scheduled for release July 3rd 2012.
