Between the changes to the iconic costume and some fairly major sounding alterations to the origin story, the response from many has been one of trepidation and anger in regards to the direction of Marc Webb's reboot.

However, 32% judged it as being average, while a much smaller amount of you came to the conclusion that it looks awful. What do you guys think about these results? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.

Its the first trailer that got me excited for this movie.
Im Officially on the Hype train. Hope the lizard gives him a run for his money
spiderman2020 - 5/10/2012, 11:33 AM
Too many Tobey fanboys
Darkhawk8 - 5/10/2012, 11:34 AM
It was ok.. Hope it turns out good.
Darkhawk8 - 5/10/2012, 11:35 AM
Tobey was terrible!!!!
Xeriath - 5/10/2012, 11:35 AM
The first two trailers were alright, but the third one really got me pumped. I'm officially psyched! It's going to be a good time.
ralfinader - 5/10/2012, 11:39 AM
This trailer was the first thing about this movie to get me interested as well. Some cool action beats, and a few scenes that looked like they leapt of the comicbook page while dodging/fighting the Lizard.
marknjoanna - 5/10/2012, 11:41 AM
i love the idea on shooting the web slinging in 1st person format,its going to be boss at i max.

in fact this being the 4th spiderman movie id prob. skipped it if wasnt in 1st person format but that hooked me.
Ha1frican - 5/10/2012, 11:52 AM
Onlu problem I have is the genetic testing of young peter origin which seems to be where they are going it
CPBuff22 - 5/10/2012, 11:53 AM
@marknjoanna I completely agree. IMAX 3D will be AWESOME! I also like this Peter Parker better.
webslinger84 - 5/10/2012, 11:54 AM
This is the type of Spider-Man movie I've been waiting for!
marknjoanna - 5/10/2012, 11:59 AM
@cp. i max will rock it in 1st person format.and yes this guy looks a lot more like parker to me.
Ashes2Phoenix - 5/10/2012, 12:00 PM
I am really excited for this movie and hope it is great but recently I have been getting this nagging feeling that it might not be. I think it is that rumour about the execs hating it, that keeps playing in my mind. I hope I am wrong because it is my most anticipated film.
SpiderFan35 - 5/10/2012, 12:00 PM
@Gusto: Yeah buddy! Maybe in the next one.

@Josh: Awesome gifs, but wtf is that chick doing in the first one lol

I felt a twinge of excitement for the first time for the movie after watching this trailer. Or maybe it was all the boobs being posted. Either way, It was a good day :D
marknjoanna - 5/10/2012, 12:00 PM
id say no on tobeys cameo,but who knows
NorrinRaddical - 5/10/2012, 12:02 PM
it's going to be a fun summer!

my biggest curiosity? that creep talking to Conners in jail! 99% sure it's Michael Masse (villian on Fringe, Bruce Banner in Ultimates Avengers 2 cartoon, HBOs Carnivale, and sadly, the man who accidentally fatally shot the Crow's Brandon Lee...).

Masse IS on imdb for Spiderman...but as someone named David Lowell?

NorrinRaddical - 5/10/2012, 12:05 PM
* spelled Massee, sorry.

consensus on imdb seems to be Lowell is a comic character who worked at Oscorp who becomes "Sundown". Lots of folks think this will be Osborne...but to show that in a trailer? maybe i'm making a mountain out of a molehill, but there's some fun intrigue to be discovered....
marknjoanna - 5/10/2012, 12:09 PM
this p parker looks a lot closer to the comics.but i think i liked tobeys suit better but need to see the movie 1st.

roll on marvel
TheGodOfMischief - 5/10/2012, 12:10 PM
@ Norrin Raddical-- I was wondering the same thing. Though no one seems to pay much attention to that clip. Perhaps because of all the other awesomeness that's going down in this trailer. BTW anyone catch this Trailer in 3-D before The Avengers? Spidey in Real-D ( 3-D ) just makes the movie looks that much better! IMO....
Francisjb - 5/10/2012, 12:10 PM
I'm praying Marvel with flex it's muscles and split Spiderman with FOX so he can be in the next Avengers movie.
stumbleMaster57 - 5/10/2012, 12:16 PM
@francisjb spidey is owned by sony not fox
SpiderFan35 - 5/10/2012, 12:16 PM
@Batlizard: Yeah yeah lol.
UrbanKnight - 5/10/2012, 12:16 PM
I give it a 7 1/2. Not as exciting as the first spider-man's theatrical trailer imo.
Darkhawk8 - 5/10/2012, 12:21 PM
@gusto that's what I'm talking about!!
Nova2012 - 5/10/2012, 12:23 PM
I know the source material...and this is not source material in the slightest....I am not a hater...Spidey is my favorite hero...I have every Spider-Man (of EVERY series) except Amazing Fantasy #15 and Amazing Spider-Man #1 (and I didn't care for Tobey's whiny performance either)...Just once I would like to see a Spider-Man movie (or basically any comic movie) that is actually like the source material!!...Why is it always necessary that we have to sit through the "director's vision"?...it is the same with almost every comic to film...Why does source material of 50 years need to be screwed with?? (Superman Returns anyone?...and that had 70 years of stories to pull from...but lets just make it about real estate...maybe in the next Superman movie he can foil a jewel heist!!)...Just off the top of my head (without seeing the film...and yes, I will have my ass in the theater to see this) the following is WRONG:
1) The suit is sooooo wrong
2) Gwen never knew his identity
3) His parents did NOT do genetic tests on him and did NOT know Curt Connors
4) His parents were double agents and the Red Skull had them killed (we don't find this out during his origin...we find out in King Size Special #5)
5) HUMOR IS A MUST...that's how he deals with any crisis (it's either that or piss himself...and I do admit that at least this version seems to have humor)
6) He doesn't ride a skateboard
7) Captain Stacey always thought that Spidey was a good guy and misunderstood...as a matter of fact when he dies in Spidey's arms (Amazing Spider-Man #90) he reveals that he knows that he is Peter.
OK, I have geek ranted enough for one day.
marvel72 - 5/10/2012, 12:23 PM
been behind this movie from the start,wasn't sure about the costume at first but i don't think its that bad i've seen worse,you all know which movie i'm on about.

i just hope the changes they've made from the comic doesn't spoil my enjoyment.
Nova2012 - 5/10/2012, 12:25 PM
and he looks nothing like Peter...do you think Garfield could get a comic book looking MJ or Gwen?...OK, now I'm finished..lol.
SpiderFan35 - 5/10/2012, 12:35 PM
@Nova:

I don't like the suit either.

Not sure waht is going on with the Gwen thing, Spidey revelaing his identity is a pretty big deal so I'm surprised they would have it happen so quick.

I'm glad the humor is being used too, seems to have improved from those Kellog's clips which I hope are on the cutting room floor.

But as for the changes to the story and the skateboarding etc, we just have to accept that this is being marketed to a younger generation. Why mess with 50 years of material? Because lots of young fans don't care about it. It's why they did the Ultimate universe. This is not your dad's Spider-man so to speak.
SpiderFan35 - 5/10/2012, 12:38 PM
@IM53: Spidey: "I'm sorry, that, uh, has never happened before" ;P

@Gusto: Kid in background: "Dat ass".
RocketMadnessBoss - 5/10/2012, 12:39 PM
This movie looks beyond terrible. That small knives scene made me cringe. The only thing that looks cool about this movie is the web slinging. The rest is trash.
Ashes2Phoenix - 5/10/2012, 12:41 PM
@RocketMadnessBoss: Why does it look beyond terrible ?
thewolfx - 5/10/2012, 12:43 PM
@spiderman2020

2many tobey haters


and toboey has nothing to do with anything you morons

its the fact this is a reboot thats way too soon

with abuncha changes just to spite the original


..idiots allover the place i swear.
Ashes2Phoenix - 5/10/2012, 12:53 PM
@thewolfx:

Erm, I guess that makes you a reboot hater then. Not everyone hated Tobey, I didn't. He was good for his time but now it is this reboots chance to shine.

Stop being a Raimi fanboy.

marknjoanna - 5/10/2012, 1:06 PM
@nova.nice spidy set i just got spidy# 5 last wk in f-.its the 1st time spidy and doom met opps i guess you knew that lol.

i dont collect the whole run like you what i do on spidy is get all the 1st 100 and the key ones after that ie.

spidy 101-1st morbus then i skip to 121 and 122 then onto 129 etc etc.

ive found its much better to just get the keys.
but its all good.

i like a site called superworld com and hes got a sale going till 5-16, i get lots from him ,heritage com and the great escape in nashville.

ive not had good luck with mile high comics tho.have you delt with them any and do you know of any other good comic dealers i might try.



marknjoanna - 5/10/2012, 1:11 PM
dont tell the nolanites but ive been looking for a batman 251 for years now lol.man that books tuff lol.

neal adams was my fav.and batman 251 is the only comic he did that i dont have.

fyi comiclinkcom has any book you may want but you will pay way way to much but im about to give in and get the 251 from them grrrrr.
Nova2012 - 5/10/2012, 1:16 PM
@marknjoanna:
I find one of the best ways is to troll eBay comics late at night and look for typos....it is amazing (ha..no pun intended) the deals I have got because someone wrote the auction ad wrong...and by the way, NICE collection...always nice to meet a Spidey collector. A good site to follow what is trending is comicspriceguide.com
...and sadly I have to re-find another Amazing #121...stupidly I had it out to change the plastic and my new puppy got it!!...went from an 8.5 to a .004 in seconds!...May the new puppy rest in peace...lol
SuperSpiderMan5778 - 5/10/2012, 1:16 PM
that's b/c those 32% are a bunch of anal retentive fawking losers. that or they're nolanites or both.
MarsivNayr - 5/10/2012, 1:18 PM
@Nova2012

Well you certainly aren't wrong on any of the points you made. BUT, if changes weren't made in these films, there'd be no point in making them. These movies are adapted, not copied, from the source material.

And if you have a problem with all of THESE changes, then I don't see how you could like Avengers, Dark Knight, the Spider-man Trilogy, Iron Man, X-men, etc.

I think that change should be welcome and necessary. It's not about copying and pasting every element of the comic, but capturing the heart and spirit and story of Peter Parker. This is very much going to be a spider-man film. (I think even more so than the last three)
Nova2012 - 5/10/2012, 1:25 PM
@SpiderFan35:
I actually agree with you completely as to why they feel they have to change things...but...if kids don't care about the "true" back stories then why change it?..it's not like they will know...sure, modernize a few things but keep the core true (like humor, the suit, not revealing his identity to everyone, etc)....this keeps the idiots, ummm, I mean kids happy and it keeps the people who do know all the back stories happy as well...I can dream ;)
marknjoanna - 5/10/2012, 1:25 PM
@nova. sorry to hear about yr 121.heart breaker.glad mine is slabbed lol.ive wanted to try e bay but i dont trust them on the high end books i guess.has it always went ok with you on e bay.and do you bid at heritage any.good deals on there some wks real good deals.
