    Am I the only one that wants a spider-man film that focuses on spider-man? Sam Raimi did ok, but they need to just rename those films Peter Parker 1, 2 and 3. I want to see a spidey film with spidey in it for more than 8 seconds. I know I may sound like a whiny fanboy, but I'm just curious if any of you have thoughts or would like to weigh in on how you'd do spider-man.

    haha, I was telling my brother the other day they should rename those movies, Peter Parker the Movie: Featuring a small cameo by Spider-Man.

    Part 3 was the worst about that, it took them almost an hour to show Spidey.

    I know it man. I think the most full spidey we got to see was that little bit in the beginning thats being shown on that screen in times square. Or if they take the peter parker route have someone interesting play pete

    If they did a reboot, my cast would be


    Spider-Man - Jake Gyllenhaal

    Well, if I was making these films I'd make them alot more different than the comics in a darker manner rather then how they made them in this current movie franchise. What I would do is I would kill off the character of Uncle Ben later on in the film so we can get to know him better and how he has a sorta big impact on how Peter Parker transforms into Spider-Man. Before I jump into the character of Spider-Man, I would introduce the characters before that so we can understand more about why they do what they do and so you can have some kind of connection or bonding with the characters. Another thing I would do is make the action sequences more explosive and enjoyable to watch. The action sequences in Spider-Man were sub-par; they were all the same: the villain kicks the crap out of the hero for the majority of the fight, the hero fights back and eventually defeats the villain. It was just really lame and mediocre. Spider-Man 2's fights were alot better than Spider-Man's fight sequences but that's not too hard of a goal to accomplish; they were pretty good but the standout for me was the train fight, not just because of the actual fight but the way they chose to end it with Spider-Man risking his identity to save the people on the train; that in my opinion was the most powerful scene in the franchise. And finally Spider-Man 3... oh God save me. The fight sequences were horrible, not only were they obnoxiously mediocre and repetitive at the same time, they were also rediculous in the sense that they were just too short and sloppy. Basically what I'm saying is that if they're going to make a reboot, they're gonna have to change somethings up to make it a suitable reboot.

    I'm ok with the first two movies. they were perfect.
    but only the third was really the Peter Parker 3, instead of a Spider-Man 3.

    We don't need a full on reboot. Just have Peter make a deal with Mephisto to make everyone forget about Spider-Man 3. :(

    Do you guys know that Peter Parker actually is Spiderman so they were Spiderman movies after all. You guys know he wears a mask right.

    yeah yeah but if I'm gonna sit thru a film that has a whiny little boy with problems I'll just stay home. I want to see spider-man in a spider-man film. Its kind of like having a thor film that focuses on Donald Blake.

    From what I saw of Toby Maguire as Spider-Man, I wasn't impressed. Could it be that some of this was because he actually made a better Peter than Spiderman?

    Umm... may I ask how you can simply make that assumption when you haven't even seen it?

    Well, remember when people doubted Heath Ledger and his portrayal of The Joker? Well look at how that turned out.
