Our red and blue hero isn't just a character in MVC3 as of late. With a new movie coming out, a new video game slated for this summer ( which is free roam!!) and an entirely new Spidey!! (Miles Morales)
Spider-man is definitely relevant to media today.
The Amazing Spider-man trailer looks amazing. Just having Mark webb on board I know this will be a good film. He's so much more suited for a film like this than Sam. Sam Raimi is a legend, but him being the driving force behind the Spider-man films has always made me feel uncomfortable.
Mark Webb will be able to capture the teen angst that surrounded Peter during the early days way better than Sam IMO. Especially the relationship side. People forget that although Peter was an outcast. All of the female friends, girlfriends, and dates he had. Were really attractive women that made him feel certain ways (MJ,Gwen,Carlie, etc)
Definitely going to be a better Spider-man film than Sam's 1, 2 and obviously 3 IMO.
