I cant believe they are already changing things up. first it was going to be a high school story and now its a college story. i still think marvel should buy out all their characters back so things can be done right. I think it was marvel calling the shots there wouldnt be any question as to the decisions being made.

Are those 'crows feet' on the corners of his eyes? I thought they were rebooting the franchise and sending him back to high school... This is really confusing. At least he looks a little geeky, but so does my 60 year old uncle. Man, I seriously cannot wait until Marvel Studios gets Spidey back!

 Disney must buy back the rights to Spiderman for Marvel.  This is so weak.  So very very weak.

Is it me or are Spiderman/Peter Parker leads getting dorkier and geekier?

Peter Parker should be a dork and a geek. That's what made him so accessible and helped launch him into the top tiers of comicdom; the majority of kids who read comics could identify easily with a dorky geek who got picked on and made fun of because he wasn't one of the cool kids. Spiderman was the first hero that truly spoke straight to the heart of its audience. I'm really disappointed that they didn't cast someone who looks younger. I don't care about eh kid's true age. Michael J. Fox played Alex Keaton as a high school kid when he was in his late 20s. I just don't think Andrew looks young. Take Peter back to his awkward high school years in more depth than Raimi did (and that's not a knock on Raimi's excellent movies...at elast the first two anyway).

Littlemickey, in order for Marvel/Disney to buy their characters back, the license owners would have to be willing to sell in first place.  Considering how many millions Sony Pictures has made on the Spidey franchise, I can't imagine them selling it back to them.  Sadly, from all the interviews I've read it sounds as though Sony's license allows them to continue to make Spider-Man movies almost indefinitely.  The only real restriction is that they can't allow the property to linger in development hell for any extended period of time.  If they go for too long without any forward progress on a new film, Marvel has the right to revoke the license.  This is why Sony is moving so quickly on the revamp.  The clock is ticking.

The execs at Marvel who made that deal with Sony for Spider-Man should be taken out in the back of the buildings and shot.  They are the ultimate dumb asses of the century right next to the ones who made the deal with Fox for the X-Men.  I do not care what Marvel got in return.  "Indefinitely" is no deal to make for ANY intellectual property for ANY business.  ASSH*LES.  >:(

It may not have been the best notion axia, but it was still far better than any previous contract Marvel had made with a movie studio.  It's also necessary to look at the situation Marvel was in at the time.  They had just come off a crippling bankruptcy.  The company had been hemoraging money due to some poor decisions of the past.  They needed cash, and were not in a position to hold out for a perfect deal.  Sony and Fox knew this, and wisely (on their part) took advantage of the situation.  The very notion that soon Marvel would be in a position to open it's own movie studio would not have occured to anyone.  Hardly anyone made comic book movies back then, and on the rare occasions they did, it was a very hit-or-miss proposition.  They didn't realize that the entire summer blockbuster industry was about to start centering around comic book characters.  The film industry had never been like that before. 

It's easy for us to sit here now and look back with a critical eye at what Marvel did.  For fanboys like ourselves, the explosion of comics-2-film is no more than the way things should always have been.  The reality is that the folks who made those deals with Sony and Fox paved the way for the success that would follow.  Maybe they didn't go about things perfectly, but they did get it done.  That's far more than can be said for the current state of affairs at DC/WB.  This year from Marvel Studios we got Kick-Ass and Iron Man 2, both of which were a huge success for the studio.  From DC/WB this year we got The Losers and Jonah Hex, both of which were just sad.

 I do not care what kind of deal Marvel was in.  They did not have to sign away Spider-Man and X-Men FOREVER.  They could have done a ten year deal which would have made sense and would have been logical.  They could seen if it would have been good for both them and Sony/Fox.  That way if it was not they could get out of the deal.  As it stands now they are FUKKED.  MORONS.
