Yeah, but it doesn't work with the darkness their trying to impose. Campy jokes and darkness don't work.
The Amazing Spider-Man Looks... Amazing
New footage shown at Kapow impresses.
by Nadia Attia MAY 20, 2012
IGN saw exclusive preview of footage from one of this summer's most anticipated blockbusters, The Amazing Spider-Man, at Kapow Comic-con in London.
Sony Entertainment introduced the sneak peek at the new Spider-Man movie as an exclusive look at 'some of the best 3D' it had ever seen, and they weren't far wrong judging by the four minutes we saw. The action takes pace in sewers, across skylines and is focused heavily around a bridge.
But there is also plenty of humour to back up the action. A cute scene involves Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and Peter Parker's (Andrew Garfield) encounter by the school lockers, set to a Coldplay soundtrack, in which he flirts with her with excruciating shyness. The love interest arc should be convincing as this is from the director that brought us the 'anti-rom-com' 500 Days of Summer - the aptly named Marc Webb. But the best humour comes from Spidey's sheer delight at his new found powers as he takes on a tooled-up thief - "oh no - is that a knife? Please say that isn't a knife!" - pulling some nifty moves with his web-shooters as he 'snots' out webbing, mimes some baseball pitching moves and then adds some cowboy finesse to his arsenal.
Rhys Ifans looks politely menacing as Dr Curt Connors who, when given Parker's scientific formula turns himself into The Lizard: "I created him!" says Peter to a distraught Gwen who pleads with him not to leave her. The Lizard, although big and stocky compared to the lithe Spider-man, can still chase our hero across a ceiling or two.
By all accounts 2012's Spider-man is very promising, and with sharp writing, a hugely talented lead (we'd take Garfield over Maguire any day), top notch 3D, and a convincing romance, this is definitely a summer blockbuster you will want to 'catch'.

A regular movie flopping and sony definitions of flopping are different, spiderman 3 was a flop to them...thats what they mean they want a blockbuster on the marvel/disney level and nothing less. They want to compete with the big boys of summer which it won't...they rebooted way to soon..people are more focused on avengers and dkr
