The Amazing Spiderman
Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, catches thieves just like flies. Look out! Here comes the Spiderman.
Spiderman. One of every little boy's favorite superheroes along with Superman and Batman. Not to mention, he is my absolute favorite superhero as well. I was first introduced to the Spiderman and other superhero comics when I was around 12. Out of all the heroes, and heroines, the one that really connected to me the most was Spiderman. Perhaps it was because he was a teen superhero that worked on his own, unlike Robin who worked with Batman. Or that he was a science geek that was ridiculed by others and bullied relentlessly. Nevertheless, Spiderman continues to be a popular superhero that can be recognized internationally.
What intrigues me most is the new reboot of Spiderman coming to theaters this summer. I did somewhat enjoy the Tobey Maguire Spiderman films... well at least till the third one. I felt that the whole premise swayed away from the comics and mostly fed into the romantic drama between Mary Jane and Peter Parker. Again while I know that such films need to appeal to the masses, the excessive drama was a bit nauseating.
I honestly was not expecting another Spiderman film until I was watching the previews last summer when I went to the movies to see Captain America. The trailer intrigued me... a boy being left behind by his parents, and I kept wondering what is this movie about? Then, suddenly, I heard the name 'Parker'. My eyes lit up and I continued to poke and shake my brother incessantly saying: "It's Spiderman, Spiderman, Spiderman." (Of course, I got kicked in the shin by him,indicating to shut up). I noted that Gwen Stacy was the female lead as well, which I approved, since in the comics she meets Peter before Mary Jane. While I couldn't figure out who the villain would be,(which will be the Lizard, according to IMDB), I was still extremely psyched; another Spiderman movie for me to enjoy, not to mention, it looked promising.
The Amazing Spiderman is due for theatres July 3rd, 2012, set in Imax 3D and 3D. In addition, Spiderman will be played by Andrew Garfield, who recently starred in The Social Network, Judging from the trailer, he manages to fit the character, at least I think so. Many people are a bit tired of Spiderman, but for me, I can hardly wait. I don't know why, maybe it's my spider senses tingling.
