Do we need another Spiderman film?
Now don’t get me wrong the last Spiderman franchise was gut charmingly cheesy, but why not wait another five or ten years when we will no longer tats the bile of the mishaps of the original trilogy? It seems these films are more about correcting the image of Spiderman making him less weakling, annoying and cheeseballish as depredated by Tobey Maguire.
Instead we are left with Andrew Garfield who hot off the press from “The Social Network” and “Never Let Me Go” has been proven talented. Of course Garfield being English will have to be pitch perfect in his role as an American, although admittedly in “The Social Network” he seemed pretty good.
Admittedly I am unimpressed with the rest of the cast; I mean Emma Stone isn't exactly known for her acting capability. Rhys Ifans is at least a good actor and should be a good baddy. And I can’t say anything against Sally Field after watching her in ER.
Marc Webb as director is a very interesting indeed. Known manly for his television work etc. “The Office”, and films such as “500 Days of Summer” he has talent sure, and hopefully his presence could make the film different from the other more repetitive forms of superhero films that we seem inundated with at the moment.
It seems most of the writers involved in this film are trying to repent for the sins they made with the other Spiderman films.
Will this film lead to the repetition of the awkwardness I felt at?
