    In this day and age of superhero movies, darker seems to be the main selling point. Let's be honest - Fantastic 4, The Hulk, Thor and Superman all felt very weak, and a big part of it was there was never a real, dark threat in the films. The only interesting part of Superman was when he was knifed with Kryptonite, and for a split second, you felt as though he might actually meet his demise. Otherwise, it was lame. Fantastic 4 tried too hard to be funny and witty, and it flopped as a movie because of the lack of tension. The Hulk was weak on many aspects (as was Superman), and nothing really developed as a challenge to him, therefore rendering the story boring. If there's nothing that can stop him, where's the drama? It's just a jolly green giant on a break stuff spree. BORING! Thor could've been so much more, and the first 40 minutes were fantastic - and then the next hour + bored us to tears.

    I don't see "dark" as a bad thing at all - look at Clooney's Batman vs. Bale's Batman. I think you'd be hard pressed to find one single individual over the age of 11 who liked Batman & Robin over The Dark Knight. I for one welcome the change from Tobey McGuire's "Leave It To Beaver" era of Spidey to a more late 90's era Amazing Spider-Man.

    Looks and sounds promising, only downside is that it's darker and not as funny, which is a bummer because the humor (for me at least) is a big part of Spider-Man.

    The first 3 Spider-man movies sucked so hard that I had no interest in this at all. Now that I've seen this preview, and (I hate to say it) Chris Gore's explanation of the direction this movie is headed; I'm actually interested in finding out more about this one. The actors in this movie are definitely a step up from the other films as well. I hated how cornball the last films were, as well as Toby's lame, constantly in awe, gee wilickers voice approach for Peter Parker. Keep your shirts on kids, this might be one worth the millions of dollars that you sink into this movie. Unlike so many of the other lame ass super hero movies you have been.

    I'm pretty excited about this moive, but when he said that it's going to be darker & not going to have the humor, I'm kind of depressed about that because Spider-man is funny & a smarta$$, that kind of defines him, so I'll be curious to see what they do with the movie. Having said that I do like Marc Webb's movies & am a spider-man fan, so I'll be there opening day or maybe even midnight showing.
