    It's Nolan-ized. The director himself admit to making the film darker, more Batman Begins/TDK-like.

    Blarg. That doesn't inspire confidence that he's going to do something new and different with the material. I like Batman, but Batman is Batman. Neither Spider-Man nor Superman ought to be treated in the same way.

    Yep. Spidey was always a wise ass. Trailer looks OK.

    damnit, why am there no ACTUAL comic book enthusiasts that work on these movies. It seems like a bunch of suits make the movies. There is probably no one there working on this film that has read every spidey comic, or at least most of Amazing Spider-man but fromt he beginning until 1990s. They probably only started reading when signed on to work on this film, and even then only wrote a few here and there.

    Word from Comic Con has been pretty positive. About ten minutes of the movie was shown, and the tone is much more lighthearted than the trailer suggests.

    Oh man, I can't wait to see what he looks like! Maybe like... a big lizard! And he may or may not have half a labcoat on! Soooo sick.

    Interesting, is the Lizard the main villain? If so, I would really hope they don't kill him off, but that Spidey helps him and they eventually become allies like in the comics.

    Trailer looks really good, hopefully most of the content will stay true to the comic books, rather than the other three movies that were completely rewritten..
