They say that when it rains, it pours. It seems to be pouring Superheroes in Hollywood at the moment! The latest Superhero to get a reboot and make it back onto the big screen is Spiderman.
It seems strange to be rebooting/re-imagining something that only had its last film (Spiderman 3) released 5 years ago. That said, I can’t help but be a bit excited as this incarnation is being directed by Marc Webb (director of one of my favourite films, 500 Days of Summer), and Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Sally Field, and Martin Sheen are part of the cast! I’m hoping this means that they will freshen up, what became, a pretty stale franchise (no offence to Tobey Maguire – I thought he made a great Spiderman. The stories just got a liltle boring).
The Amazing Spiderman is out in cinemas July 2012.
