I'll be honest, I'm not really looking forward to this film since I love Raimi's films too much (even the third one). I grew up with the first film.

Sorry if this question is obvious, but are they going with the "Spidey makes his webs and shoots them out of a little gun thing" method like in the comics? I hope so.

Yes. Spidey has mechanical webshooters in this one.

I am liking the look of the movie more now. But balking at the whole "his parents have something to do with Spiderman" thing going on here. It feels like bad retconning of the history, to me.

Yeah it sounds like they are going with the bad retconing that happened in the comics in the 90s.  I never had a problem with the movie version of webbing,I mean it makes more sense that he just makes it himself then he some how magicly knows how to mix up cans of webbing just because a spider bit him.

His webbing had nothing to do with his spider bite; it had to do with his major. Because only a science major could create a device like that.

Still if the choice is between wasting time on a scene where he creates webshooters and just having him get webbing from a spider bite that gives him all his other powers then I would choose the later. It just seems like Rami's version was a better use of the film's screen time.

I thought the retcon had his parents involved with the developement of what became Venom, not Spiderman himself.

BUT THEN HOW WOULD WE KNOW THAT HE'S A SCIENCE MAJOR?

Well I have not read it in years but there was this whole thing I remember where his parents came back from the dead and it turned out they had something to do with the project that created the spider that bit him,it was all pretty stupid and I have not read them since I was a kid so I don't remember all the details except it was stupid.

What?! There are plenty of villains left to put in SM4!



Eh? Eh?

But yeah, they should stop at three. Don't think a reboot is a good idea at all, though.

The effects still look kinda funky to me. They're a bit videogamey.

Also, did the soundtrack do the whole WUB WUB WUB thing in the beginning?

Odd that they should choose to include a scene that combines elements of setpieces from two of the Sam Raimi films - the bridge scene from the first one and the "mask off" train scene in the second.  Especially when they're going with the whole "This One Is Different!" angle.

I'd be just as unsurprised if the movie turned out to be good as I would be if it turned out to be a total stinkbomb.  But either way, I'm just not getting the overpowering urge to actually see it.

I rewatched 500 Days of Summer the other day which has re-excited me for this, I think the trailer sets a nice tone too.

Maybe if they don't want to have to re-boot things they should sign the actors on for 4 movies but the directors on for 2? that way they won't make self-contained trilogies.

Or you'll just get the buildup for a trilogy and then a very weak finale (see: X-Men). As much of a debacle that Spiderman 3 was, I don't think a new director would've changed things. Not with how much the studio was interfering on it.
