It'd be like if someone re-did The Dark Knight 10 yrs from now. Horrible idea (sadly someone will do it).
I'm with you. Seemed so soon to reboot a series. However I can't really blame them. This movie made 750 million dollars world wide in box office sales. Plus they'll make more with DVD/Blu-ray and toys and shit. Once they make another couple sequels (at least) they'll have made a shitload of money whether the movies suck or not.
I personally liked the first 2 Spider-Mans with Tobey Maguire. Thought they were pretty entertaining. The third one I did not care for much. The addition of Venom was poorly done and pretty weak.
Haven't seen the rebooted "Amazing Spider-Man" yet, but I thought the trailer looked ok. In fact my brother has it on blu-ray. I think I'll give it a watch tonight before bed. I really love Emma Stone and Denis Leary, so it has that going for it. I don't know what to think of Andrew Garfield though. Time will tell I guess.
Jamie Foxx as Electro seems dumb as hell though. Not a fan of that move. Who knows though. I thought Heath Ledger was a terrible choice for the Joker initially. How wrong was I about that!
