For some reason, I'm just tired of the emo-ish/teen angst vibe I'm getting from the trailer.
I'm getting a green lantern vibe from this movie where people are talking about captain america and xmen first class and green lantern fell by the wayside. Same thing as this, people are talking about avengers(it is glorious btw!) and dark knight, and nobody is talking about spiderman.
The emo and teen angst stuff was always there with Spider-Man. It was only when he put on the costume that he got any sort of confidence in those early years, and we see that in the trailer as well with finally getting a jokey Spider-Man. Nothing out of character about that in the movie, IMO.
I don't know about a Green Lantern vibe.. people WERE talking about GL leading up to it - talking about how it would suck. I think there's more of a sense of optimism about this. Or there should be. It's odd because more non-comic fans I know are excited about this than comic fans, who seem to be too concerned with snouts and skateboards.
I would compare it more to X-Men First Class, though.
Two movies banking on a franchise name, but with entirely new casts.. I could see it doing the same type of numbers at the box office. Maybe a bit closer to $200M.
A huge comedown from what the Spider-Man movies tend to do, but given that it's a reboot, as long as Sony doesn't panic I think it should be good for this.
