It may just be because I'm a big Spidey fan, but I'm really looking forward to this.  I wasn't all that impressed with the initial trailer last year, but I thought this one looked pretty good.  I also read a recap of some of the other "sizzle reel" footage they showed at those various locations yesterday, and it sounded like it looked pretty good (and included more humor/quips, which I always felt was missing from Raimi's trilogy).

I don't know. It feels low budget to me and a little dark. Its just not that impressive looking. I have a feeling that Spiderman will get squished by the Avengers.

I think, from what I've heard, that they did try to keep the budget down more compared to the Raimi Spider-Man films.  We'll see I guess.  I agree though, I don't want it overly dark or anything either.  I'm in the camp that feels properties like Spidey don't need the "Dark Knight" treatment.  It works for some characters, but not for others.  That said, I do like what I see so far.  I would have been fine if the Raimi films continued as well, but I like the cast/direction here so far from what I've seen.  I do think, no matter how good, that this movie will have a hard time beating Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises at the box office this summer though.  There just seems to be a lot more buzz with those franchises, which I'm excited for as well.

I'm not sure I'm happy with the design for the Lizard, but the rest of the trailer looked good.  Possibly a little better than I was hoping for.

Couldn't we just put Spiderman in the Avengers and call it a day?

This trailer has turned me around on this film a bit.  I did not like the casting of Garfield as Parker, but he seems to fit the bill, at least in this trailer.

New trailer is up! (and will be attached to Avengers this weekend)

http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/sony_pictures/theamazingspiderman/

I know some people aren't too jazzed about a reboot, but I'm getting pretty psyched for this - and just happy for another Spidey movie either way.  Looks pretty good to me though.  I don't think it will hang with Avengers/Dark Knight box office wise, but hopefully it is a good movie and a nice (re)start to the franchise.

So when does Spiderman team up with the Avengers?

So, after seeing this new trailer, am I wrong in thinking that not only is this a reboot but also they're totally screwing with Peter's backstory on how/why he becomes Spider-Man?  Because I got the impression that somehow he's an experiment gone wrong rather than an accidental victim?

Eh.  I'm going to go see this movie, but I'm not all that excited about it.

This is the Ultimate Spider-Man origin.  Tweaked from old Marvel.

Great. So now not only are there convoluted comic backstories, now we have to have them in the movies also?  So is this a straight Ultimates origin or did they tweak that and come up with something new there also? 

For example, in the original Spidey origin didn't he date Gwen during high school and Mary Jane came later which they swapped in the Raimi trilogy.  In Ultimate universe did he still date Gwen first or are they screwing with that part of it in the movie again?

Not feeling this movie at all. Sucks since Spider-Man is my favorite super hero.
