    Although I am upset about this reboot news, it could be a good thing. I mean if they take it in a darker direction like the Batman series, it could be really good. They just need a great director and top-notch actors.

    The thing that bugs me though is that when a series is rebooted, to me the rest are no longer definitive. Like the first three Spider-Man movies were made for nothing. Willam Defoe as the Green Goblin was simply amazing and now it's as if they don't even care.

    I disagree I don't think that Spider-Man should go in a darker direction. As a character Peter Parker is just a all around good fun loving guy, that's one of the main things that made Spider-Man 3 suffer so much. If anything I think it should be more light hearted throughout the first three movies we got what like one funny Spider-Man quip per movie? That might be stretching it, Spider-Man is a guy who should always be cracking wise, that's one of the things that endears him to so many people and one of his best character traits the guy knows hes screwed so instead of being down and depressed about the situation he makes light of it which almost always annoys whatever villain hes fighting and throws them off their game. So go darker? No way.

    I know it's been almost 8 years since the first movie was released in theaters, but isn't it too early for a reboot?


    I agree. Although for the next Venom they need to get someone like Brock Lesnar to play him. You know someone big and imposing looking like the comic book character.

    Wow.. Does everything need to be rebooted??

    They rebooted the Hulk after Ang Lee's version.
    They rebooted Halloween
    They are rebooting Nightmare on Elm Street
    They rebooted the Batman franchise (after Batman and Robin who could blame them)

    Granted the last Spider man movie was not the best, IMHO there is no reason to reboot this franchise.

    Hes the perfect casting when it comes to looks but the guy can't act his way out of a wet paper bag, or at least he couldn't in his WWE days anyways.

    Instead of rebooting, what about making something original??
    Even with these movies I mentioned was a reboot necessary? IMHO NO. Hollywood needs to think of new ideas and leave some things well enough alone.
    New ideas not re-creating old ones..

    If anything, do what they did with Superman Returns, they were not happy with 3 and 4 so they "erased them" from the movie continuity by making SR which takes place after Superman 2..

    If they were not happy with how it turned out with spidey 3, they could have just made a movie in it's place (like SR and the new Hulk) and forgotten about SM 3..

    Name it "The Amazing Spider-Man" or something and picking up after #2.

    Agreed instead of just using old material with new actors why not use NEW MATERIAL! I mean sure there is only so much to be done with comic book and video game movies so why not try to develop original ideas.

    They shouldn't have forced the Venom thing in 3. You could tell it was tacked on. And yes that actor was way too scrawny.. Superman Returns was ok. But Lex Luthor AGAIN? Then Superman picking up an entire island of Kryptonite? Why is it that they can make so many good episodes of the animated series but can't make a decent Superman movie?

    That is so weird you would say that, . My and a frien of mine said that very samething a long time ago.

    But tbondrage99 has a point. He's acting probably would be awful.

    But you know I have to say, I think Topher Grace could of been better in that role. But Venom/Eddie Brock was a poorly written character. They just wanted to put Venom in that movie cause he's such a popular villian in the comic series.

    As far as people saying that it's too soon to reboot the movie series, I do agree. But comic book movies are so popular right now, especially among a bunch of posers whom never read a freaking comic in their life and probably made fun of the kids whom did read the comics in school. This movie companies are going to profit from those guys and I can't say I blame them.

    I think that's stupid, just cause The Dark Knight made a shit load of money all super hero movies have to be dark and gritty now.

    Yep. They tried that a few times in the comics. It didn't work. Why do you ask? Cause Spider-Man isn't a dark and gritty character.

    As far as "rebooting" the franchise, I only have one opinion............


    YOU MIGHT THINK I'M ALONE IN MY ADULATION OF SPIDER-MAN. YOU MIGHT THINK THAT I'M SOMEHOW SOCIALLY OR EMOTIONALLY RETARDED TO STILL HAVE SUCH GREAT PASSION FOR SOMETHING AIMED, ESSENTIALLY, AT CHILDREN, AND CREATED ALMOST 50 YEARS AGO.

    The only time he was dark and gritty was when he had the Symbiote, Venom, and Carnage.

    Don't forget the whole "I am no longer Peter Parker, I AM THE SPIDER" crap just before the clone saga wankfest. When he wrapped himself in a web cocoon, then left the life of Peter Parker behind him.
