I'm kinda disappointed. I was excited at the rumors of them bringing out the Miles Morales storyline. I'm not a comics guy at all. I didn't know Miles existed, except that I thought I'd heard something once about Peter Parker not being the "only" Spiderman.
Many comments that I've seen on other sites about this story reflect my own opinion. I really don't want to see another reboot of the series. I mean, sure, Marvel will run the show, so MAYBE it'll be on par with their other cinematic offerings. But I just don't know that I'm excited at all for this one. I was very excited for the first Tobey Maguire (sp?) one, and I watched the latest reboot, but only at home and well after they had come and gone in the theaters.
I hope they can do something fresh enough without introducing Miles or another character, but I won't hold out hope just yet.
Valid points. I just think the last 2 versions were too close together. Look at how long we went without a new Batman movie before Nolan's work came out. IMO, a reboot works better if the last one isn't still fresh in my mind.
Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. I'll definitely watch trailers and such and will rent it for home viewing if nothing else. Just, like I said before, not as excited about the idea as I was with the first incarnation and I glossed over the latest reboots, mostly because it was too soon in my mind.
