Default Who else feels sick?

I mean, they really got alot of us fans hyped up for the last two years for Spider-Man 4. Last week it's in hold. Last week Tobey says they're just making it better. Yesterday, they tell us Vulture is John Malkovich. Today they say "Nevermind, just kidding". What. The. Hell?! Seriously. Are they serious? It's like a sick joke. There wasn't even a warning of this. I loved where this franchise was going. They've done so well in my opinion, and many others'. Now it's just done? We didn't even see everything! No Lizard, no Vulture.
Tobey, JK Simmons, Rosemary Harris, Cliff Robertson...GONE! It's too early for this. You don't restart a successful franchise. You restart failed ones that no one likes anymore.



This is like being a kid waking up for Christmas...to find nothing.

Really, I want...All I want is them to do Spider-Man 4. Please. That is all.

I agree.. I am completely shocked and angered that they are doing this..and I don't care what the brain dead fan boys say..SM3 did not SUCK. If they think it wasn't great, then fine...but it didn't suck..and the series doesn't need to be rebooted...not this early anyway....seriously they better be joking with this.

Ain't gonna happen.
Deep inside, I wanted to see the number 4 after the Spider-Man name.

But...I also wanted another direction for the series.
I got the second option. Not exactly what I was hoping for...but it might turn out great. I'm optimistic.

But sick? That's exagerated, dude.
I'm surprised, and that's it for now. I'm still absorbing the news.

Sam needs to redeem himself. Thanks to Sony, we won't get to see that. I feel like this reboot will be a bad move as much as those hardcore SM fans wanted this reboot.

I feel sick about it too.

I think Sony's made a huge mistake. Way to string the fans along for 2 years just to dump on them. Not cool AT ALL.

Also, I think it's far too soon for a reboot. The first movie isn't even 10 years old! Give me a break!

I'm not sick, no. But incredibly bummed considering how much I was enjoying this franchise as a whole. To restart from the beginning with so much talent being pushed aside it's just, wow. Whose call was this and what are they thinking? You realize how talented the cast and crew for these films are? Why now? I'm not happy about it, no.

Some posters on here are totally exaggerating. They're only films. Spiderman 3 was ridiculous, any sequel following that with the same cast/crew would be terrible. The new series of films'll be even worse too, so be thankful you've got films you like.

I just finished telling my mom about this piece of news. She's a huge fan of the Raimi trilogy, so she's not happy at all with this reboot.

My mom and I had a tradition with the Spidey movies. We saw all of them at the midnight shows together, as a "girls' night out" kind of thing. Both of us had a blast every time we went. Ah, memories ...

Unfortunately, my mom has already decided that she isn't going to see the reboot. I didn't think that she'd have such a strong negative reaction to this!

What bothers me is that the movie was cancelled because he couldn't make a ummer release date, it had nothing to do with making it better

I feel sick too. I was really looking forward to 4. I had total faith that Raimi would pull off another fantastic movie, but thanks to the studio's constant interference we'll never see the series continue. There's no way I'll watch it start over again for no reason. SM3 had issues but they make a great trilogy.

I'm also saddened that this turn of events has all but killed chances of ever seeing a Spider-man 3.1 as well. With the wealth of removed footage, there was a chance that a director's cut could do a lot to improve the film.

It's a huge surprise to me too. I didn't like SM3 but still don't see the need for a reboot. It feels like people are reboot crazy these days. Like "oh the last film didn't go well, what do we do...reboot!"

The could have easily just gotten a new director and new actors and move the franchise forward. Skip ahead a year, say MJ moved to hollywood to pursue her career. Focus on Pete in college as an established Spider-man. That's simple enough. You could tell any story you wanted, use any villain, sky's the limit.

I just dont' see the point in rebooting from ground zero. The movies are only 10 years old. And as was said, the first two were amazing, they really established what a good superhero movie was in the modern age. Now in rebooting you have to tell the same story over again, and unless you're making som significant changes it's a pretty basic story. How will you impove on it? Also the other films are very well know and still quite popular, now they are forcing comparisons between the new and the old since your covering the same territory from 10 years ago.

We'll see how it turns out, my preference tho is just to move forward already instead of retreading old ground. I can think of a few good reasons to reboot: 1) the series is dead in the water, no one likes it or will touch it (ex Batman & Robin) 2) a significant amount of time has passed and the franchise needs new life (ex. Star Trek) 3) some crazy element was added in a previous movie that hinders or stifles any new stories about the characters (this last one is iffy but an example is the kid from superman returns, to do any new movies your forced to deal with the kid, only other option is a reboot). Those three reasons i can accept but no apply to spider-man. If they re-introduce the villains do you really think they'll top Dr. Oct from spidey 2? Only time will tell.

After I saw Drag Me to Hell I got so excited about Spider-Man 4, because it showed that Raimi when he has full control of his film, can still bring the awesome! Now I'm angry. I haven't been angry about movie news in a long time, in fact since Singer left X-Men. I had to literally calm myself down.

Not cool.
You can't call people "braindead fanboys" because they expected a movie that was at least as good as Spider-Man 2, and got that horrible mess instead.
Or hell, maybe you can, just like I can call people who like SM3 a bunch of "settle-for-anything fanboys".

VERY cool.

Fanboy sniveling over that film has gotten to ridiculous levels. Could it have been a better film? Sure. Was it bad? Hell no.

I'm stunned by this news as well. There was plenty of time in the future for a reboot. They had a great cast in hand, why not leave Raimi alone and see what he crafted? You can never go back now. The movie franchise is in serious danger of becoming as stale as the books. Never letting Pete grow up or grow at all as a character. I don't want to see a high schooler for life Spider-Kid.

Default Re: Who else feels sick?

yeah I felt like the op when I heard the news. I do think that the movies could be improved upon and haven't fully exploited the character of spider-man but am still very much attached to the cast... its simply came out of left field completely.

There were aspects lacking from raimis movies -
not enough spider-man (and yes, the whole losing the mask thing), action scenes weren't the high points - generally bland as powers under-used, too much slow-mo, too much cgi, not enough quipping/too much moping, parker not growing up.

Now I may have said the above, but there were a hell of a lot of things that raimi got right. I wouldn't want the above at the expense of emotional resonance and weight. And THATS what I'm worried about.

It would take some SERIOUS talent to better raimis movies- my interest for a re-booted spider-man might have been pretty hot 5 years down the line, but at the moment its nigh on zero. Just feel robbed of an opportunity to see raimi knock it out of the park.Thanks to sonys attitude, my hopes aren't that high for a new spider-man, and this whole "making spider-man like the dark knight" thing has me worried. Thats what James Cameron did 15 years ago - SPIDER-MAN IS NOT THE CROW OR BATMAN!

I can't be any happier that Raimi is not attached to this franchise anymore; he gave me an average first movie, a great second one, yes, but again a terrible third one; so it's kinda one out of three for me. I don't need any more stupid jokes or Superman references in Spiderman movies.

If another director comes and gives this a more serious approach I don't think anyone can take the smile out of my clowny face.

Have to admit I think it's a waste to have built up Doc Connors( in the true blue, in the know, fans minds) and not do something with him. The Lizard has awesome screen potential. and I appreciated Raimi's love and nods to the source material. However, I had many issues with every movie.

I look forward to a fresh approach. However, I feel I'll be disappointed if they turn it into a high school musical approach (without the music).

And, I've said it before but El Payaso I love that avatar. Long live Cesar Romero.

Same here, all his love and nods can't fix the flaws up.

As for the nods, the utility belt, Shazam, up up and away web, shirt open, I just HATED those.

If it's true that they're after a more serous/dark tone then I doubt.

Plus, Raimi's approach was kind of that, a teenage cheesey romantic comedy.

Honestly,I'm more shocked thanm anything. Never saw this coming.
I just hope that the reboot series is taken more seriously(although I did love Raimi's films)and if(or when)Venom and the symbiote are included they they are made darker and given alot more respect.
