So, by now, many people have given their opinions on the new trailer for next summer's, The Amazing Spider-Man. http://www.traileraddict.com/trailer/spider-man-2012/trailer. And for the most part, the opinions have been this: "Wah, wah, the Sam Raimi one was better, wah, the effects are bad, wah, it different." Basically it's been a LOT of fanboy whining. I think the the trailer is awesome. I was a little unsure of the "dark and gritty" twist but they look like they've nailed it. And I am a HUGE Spider-Man fanboy.
So, lets take a look at the major complains people have with the trailer. 1. Sam Raimi's was better. Well, I guess people can either see into the future or they are making rash decisions based off of a whole 2 MINUTES of the full movie. 2. The effects suck. Yes, the effects aren't great. But it's not like they have a whole year to polish them. Oh, wait... 3. It's too different. This is the one that pisses me off the most. People were say that the Spider-Man series needed to change after the (Wrongfully beaten) third movie came out. And when they actually change it, it's "Like totally the end of Spider-Man. God, Marc Webb is a f*cking moron." Honestly, the trailer for this Spider-Man doesn't really look too different from the others. So, fanboys, please. Stop complain and accept the fact. Raimi's Spidey is gone. Webb's Spidey is here. And it is good.
