Why does a Spidey Sense “tingle”? Why doesn’t it vibrate, or beep, or yell into his ear? Perhaps we’ll never know.
I enjoyed the Toby Maguire Spider-Man series of films but I think we can all agree that they had some pretty terrible moments, particularly the third film. When I heard they were going to make a fourth with the same actors I wanted to tell them to give it a rest but Hollywood and character rights being what they are, they decided to move ahead, only to change direction and reboot the series instead. The trailer looks incredibly dark. Not Batman Begins dark, more like they needed a bigger budget for lighting dark. Hopefully it won’t be so shady in theaters.
Fan-favourite artist Ariel Olivetti’s dynamic Spider-Man designs are on display in this brand new Sideshow Comiquette! Take a look:
The 24-inch Spider-man Comiquette from Sideshow is another entry to the long list of amazing Spider-Man collectibles you can expect to see as the upcoming Spider-Man reboot gets closer and closer and the excitement builds! Definitely one that fans will want to get their hot little hands on. You can order now and it ships in the first quarter of this year!
And, of course, there’s a little bit of news about the Spider-Man reboot, with new pictures released today! Check out Big Shiny News, who grabbed the pics from OnLocation, as the watermarks suggest!
On Location News have posted a slew of new photos from the set of Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot (if you couldn’t tell by the over-zealous use of watermarks)! These pictures give us the best look at the new Spider-Man suit to date, and I have decided I like it.
There seems to be a pretty solid line drawn in the geek community with regards to liking and hating the new Spidey suit. I like the new direction, it brings in a good mix of Ultimate Spider-Man, 2099 Spider-Man, and Classic Spider-Man to give us fans something new instead of just a rehash of the movie costume that came before it. I’m glad Webb and company have taken some liberties with the costume while still staying faithful to the “feel” of the original costume and I can’t wait to see it in action on the big screen. Even if you disagree and hate the costume, keep in mind that the most important thing is that it’s a solid movie – I firmly believe that if the script and acting are all great, those who hate the costume will be willing to overlook it, and maybe even come to like it! Marc Webb’s untitled Spider-Man film is set for release on July 3, 2012.

Denis Leary is in negotiations to play the father of Emma Stone in Columbia’s new Spider-Man movie.
Stone is playing the love interest of Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and Leary will play police captain George Stacy, her father who frequently came into contact with the web-slinging superhero.
In Marvel Comics lore, Stacy perished in an accident during a battle between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus, an event that led Gwen Stacy to hate the hero.
Columbia and director Marc Webb are keeping the James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent-penned script under lock and key so it’s uncertain how faithful to the core story Leary’s version of the character will be.
Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Laura Ziskin are producing the movie, which begins shooting in December.
WME-repped Leary hasn’t appeared in a theatrical movie since 2002’s The Secret Lives of Dentists, although he has been starring in the acclaimed drama Rescue Me since 2004. He appeared in HBO’s Recount and has continued to voice the character of Diego the sabertooth in the Ice Age movies.
