The Raimi films and the ASM movies have their respective pros and cons. Andrew Garfield is a way better Spider-Man than Maguire, but the ASM movies had shitty villains. Etcetera.
Iím not in favour of an origin story either. Thatís been done to death. But the Avengers already have a grown-up smartass genius, and his name is Tony Stark. Adding another wisecracking prodigy to the team is kind of redundant. And just because Marvel wants a young Spidey doesnít automatically mean the movie will suck. Like Mathim said, age is irrelevant.
I just hope Marvel doesnít shove other, underexposed heroes out of the way to make room for Spider-Man. Thatís all.
On a different note, what do you guys think will be better: Batman v. Superman or Civil War? And why?
That you could call Andrew Garfield anything other than unimpressive at best, makes my head want to explode.
BvS is going to suck because Superman simply cannot be hurt and there's no suspense or tension when he fights. It's purely for the sake of others being in danger so it really is just boring. Even the Hulk was able to be hurt and overpowered by the Abomination, so that was at least more interesting during their final battle. Then the fact that they're trying to cram in so many other heroes and such without proper introductions is going to be difficult to balance out. Plus we're not getting a proper reboot of Batman before his intro here and he's supposed to be the co-star? I'm sorry, there's just not enough care going into it or really, any of the DCCU. Have you seen the spacing of JL part 1 and 2 compared to Infiniti War part 1 and 2? It's crazy.
Not to mention, Civil War is about to give us things we're all clamoring for. The very strong possibility that one or more heroes will really die (something that is a big concern among fans that complain that it gets too boring knowing everyone is going to be okay-see Man of Steel for the pinnacle of this complaint), the introduction of who knows how many other unsung heroes if only in cameos, and of course the first opportunity for the MCU's signature black superhero to make himself known, as well as newcomer Spidey (although that, they can certainly bollocks up.) Marvel took time and care to craft this one. DC is sharting out their product to scramble up the ladder after them, and it shows. Sorry, DC, you need to earn more street cred before I have any faith in you. I WANT you dummies to be good, to be better. Prove that you have it in you. I won't hold my breath, though.
