Having had a bit of a redesign of the blog, I’ve also decided to start blogging a bit more generally than I have in the past. There’ll still be a focus on youth work but there’ll also be more general Christian stuff, blogs about events in my life, as well as things I’ve found and think are just plain cool.
With that last bit in mind, I give you the trailer for The Amazing Spiderman, seemingly arriving in the summer of 2012. Having enjoyed the last three Spiderman films, even though the 3rd was a real mess (see also X3 – maybe the third time isn’t really a charm after all), I was dubious about this reboot. Andrew Garfield, the actor taking over from Tobey Maguire in the role of Peter Parker, just looked to weedy and unimpressive to be fill Maguire’s boots. However, having seen this trailer, I’m completely won over. Garfield already looks better than Maguire ever did and the film itself looks grittier than the previous three instalments at least if the trailer is to be believed. This can only be a good thing. If you don’t agree, just go and watch Batman & Robin and compare it to Batman Begins/The Dark Knight. Only one of those films is a crime against all humanity and you don’t get any points for guessing which one.
So what do you think? Will it be a Batman & Robin or a Batman Begins? Let me know what you think.
