Thanks to our Comic Con adventures and numerous posts about the “The New 52” titles from DC Comics, the readers of the PiercingMetal Musings blog don’t need me to tell them how we really enjoy the comic book medium over here. I will even say that I have had a serious appreciation for many of the live action movies from these characters over the last few years. With that being the case I wanted to share the recently released new trailer for the upcoming “Amazing Spider-Man” film by Sony Pictures. At first I thought this would continue the saga that we liked with Spider-Man 1, 2 and 3 but no….this film is a reboot of the franchise and when I heard this I was a little skeptical. Anyway, we can talk more on this in a moment, just watch the trailer first.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: So what do you readers think? I have to admit that this trailer sure does look interesting and the casting appears to be sound based on what we get to see here. As you can tell by the trailer, the villain for the film will be The Lizard and I am sure that comics fans have been wanting him for years. Dr. Connors was in a few of the films already but it was a tease. With the reboot we get the big change and some deeper rationale for his transformation. You know how they change this stuff ever so slightly to make it work as a movie. Since some really good stuff has been done with Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America I am hopeful that the magic continues with Spider-Man because he is one of my very favorite heroes of them all. I’d love to hear what you folks think about this or the film franchise. This one appears to be my second Summer movie as it comes out in July 2012. The first will be “The Avengers” and I’ve already mentioned just how excited I am for that one…….oooh I just got a chill. LOL.
