    Could probably go in USN, but he does seem like a sort of Peter Parker type person. Hopefully the films will still be written well.

    If Tobey is not in it for the next Spider Man then I am not watching it at all.. Perhaps.

    They ruined it. [​IMG]
    You should never change the actor of a movie series that big. [​IMG]

    That like changing the guy who plays harry potter or the guy who does homers voice.

    Thanks for the news but i don't like it [​IMG]

    After some reading up, they are going to restart the series and it's (apparently) going to have Peter still actually at high-school. If it is at high-school, it's going to be a bit odd as the actor is already 26 and will be like 28 by the time the film is finished, and into his 30's for any sequels :|


    Still.. the new actor does look nerdy enough to pull off the Peter Parker bit [​IMG]

    Yeah, I wasn't too happy when I heard that everything was basically being overhauled. They got rid of Maguire, Dunst and Raimi. [​IMG]

    Essentially Sam Raimi didn't want to do what the studio wanted him to do (More stupid bullshit like the last movie) and scrapped the whole project and decided to do a reboot. It was a pretty big story back when it happened. Also it's an american thing to have teenagers all played by 20-somethings. I don't get it at all.

    Nobody complains about Batman. Or James Bond for that matter.

    Anyway, I thought Andrew Garfield gave a great performance in Doctor Parnassus so it will be interesting to see how he plays the role of Peter Parker/Spiderman.

    I wonder, is he gonna be a GOOD Spiderman? Because Tobey wasnt a good one imo but then again neither were the movies compared to comics/tv shows.

    I mean a fking emo spiderman? Come on already!
