First of all people, I'd just like to say thank you to all of you readers of my blog out there. It's been a long time since I wrote one, but this time, it's going to follow the same routine as my previous blog: Superheroes, particularly Spider-Man. Did you guys hear about the reboot? When I did, I had mixed feelings, and after being reminded today I felt like I should finally write a blog about it here on RT, so here we are.
Back in 2002, the Spider-Man series was first launched as the first ever live-action production about the iconic Marvel Comics Character. The film turned out to be a success to the general movie audience and comic book geeks, so successful that I rank it high up as one of the best superhero films, or films, I've ever seen. After the commercial and critical success the film garnered, a sequel was announced to be on works. At first, I was like, a sequel? What the hell?!! The film should be left alone, to be left as an unhindered classic! Why the hell are they making a sequel? After it was made and I saw it, I was nearly as blown away as I had been when I watched its predecessor. It was nearly as awesome as the first! The cliffhanger they put at the end left me wanting more. God almighty, I was so pleased that I was completely filled with anxiety and impatience: When on earth will the third act come out? 2007, sure enough, came along, and it came along with surprises. Grim surprises. The first two epic films, films that I loved, had to be utterly disgraced by the terrible third act. Why? How? How could anyone ruin a franchise so awesome? I seriously don't know. I was angry at the film, angry at the producers and the actors, but especially, the writers. They completely screwed the mythology up, right beyond repair. The result? A crap film, a crap storyline, and virtually, crap everything!
That all said, some part of me still had hope with the fourth one that was said to be coming out, but after 2 years since Spider-Man 3 came out, I demanded a reboot. Now, it's in works with a completely new cast and director. How great is that? Thank God they're going to have a chance at repairing all the mess they did with the third film, and yet, part of me feels sad. The first two were so great in the superhero genre that they don't deserve to get forgotten and discarded, but what choice did anyone have? The third film was so bogus that it needed a Goddamn reboot. Overall, I guess I'm happy that they're going to reboot the franchise completely like they did with Batman Begins. Here's hope to a grittier, more heartfelt take on the new franchise, and I've got my hopes high. Let me know what you think guys!
