    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I don't think it's really that far fetch, he is one of the smartest man on the marvel universe and as a kid he has access to some stuff from his chemistry class to create his webbings, his suit is just spandex and he can just go to the junk yard and grab stuff to create his stuff like his web shooters (I think they showed him using an old wristwatch in ASM?).

    I understand that's int he comics where the visual details aren't as necessary as it is in the film but that is part of who Peter is, he create his own stuff.

    I could be in the minority here, but these triailers left me feeling very excited. It's the first time we've seen an age-appropriate actor, and there's an element of excitement and discovery and even real danger missing from the other films. Stark's presence just seems to anchor it in the established universe; so far, the films have worked remarkably well together -- something I never expected.

    I would also like to see a mature Parker (maybe something more serious, akin to the second CA film), but at this point, there are so many Spider-Man retellings that the franchise feels like the comics -- so many versions, with their different likenesses and continuities, you can just pick your favorite and roll with it (and argue about all the geeky details).

    That's fine as an idea for a comic, but on film, a "cheap spandex" costume looks like crap. And the moving eyes that everyone is so fond of, that doesn't seem cheap either.

    Tobey and Garfield Spidey suits were perfectly fine, they're just spandex for the most part. Yes it looks more expensive that it should be but it was still believable I thought, it's not like it's some IM suit that needs maintenance.

    Plus this is Spiderman, some suspense of disbelief has to be given but Tony giving him his suit and gadgets takes away from who Spidey is.

    This has surprisingly become one of the best current franchises along with the Marvel superhero movies and Star Wars.

    So I started re-reading Morning Glories, having just found out they reached the end of 'season 2', and likely, the whole series. It was such a long wait, I'm surprised the whole thing is only 50 issues.

    Anyway, it occurs to me that the premise -- a group of teens held against their will by an elite boarding school, being groomed for some epic supernatural event -- is nearly identical to a crappy live-action TV series. Does anyone remember the name?

    Any Morning Glories readers here? It's been compared to Lost for its strong start, deepening mysteries, and severe over-referencing of quantum physics. Readers were heartened to learn there was an outline in place from the beginning, but there was always the fear that like Lost, it would reveal itself to be merely a soup of references and red herrings, leading nowhere satisfying. I'm anxious to discover the truth!

    this is hands down the best animated series ever made, it's crazy how great it was

    here's some top ten list scene but I could easily have maybe 30-40 episodes to compete with the list alone

    I'll watch 80% probably, but my level of excitement is going down.

    Definitely not watching the 3rd (fourth?) Spider-Man reboot. The wahlberg transformers. Stuff like that.
