Having gotten over the “Another damn reboot!?” phase, I’m actually rather looking forwards to the new Spider-man movie. The fact they seem to be forgoing some of the CGI reliance of the Raimi films in favour of a bit of good old, man-on-wire film making also helps to give me a bit of a warm fuzzy feeling. Going right back to Christopher Reeve, there’s just something about seeing an actual man in a superhero suit, soaring above a crowd of people that stirs something in me and I sense I’m not alone in that.
Plus it’s always funny to see a bunch of tech guys trying to get said man in a superhero suit down from his wire once the stunt is over. 😉
