He is a very good young actor who was excellent in The Lookout and Brick which I saw, please ignore him as Cobra Commander as that whole movie was just terrible.
    Please no to 30 year old's playing teens.

    Loved the "appeal to every demographic" comment. Thats exactly what I'm worried about here. No, I want them to appeal to JUST the fans that post regularly on this Spidey message board right here! Everyone else will come around.

    Someone should probably change the thread title, because his name is Marc Webb.

    And (500) Days of Summer was awesome, so combined with teen Spidey and a hopefully better cast, I have high hopes for this one.

    I've not seen the movie(500 days), I will. hope it works out. Although I adore Raimi I can understand starting all fresh from the ground up.

    I agree that Gordon-Levitt, despite being talented is a bit too old to play a teenage Peter Parker. OTOH I don't think you want to go too young either and run the risk of the actor outgrowing the role in some way or being too young and awkward at first. It's why actors in their early to mid 20's always play teens in movies/tv.

    As a counter, who would have thought Favreau could do Iron Man? Based on what, Made? Elf? Zathura? Kinda outside the box there, and it paid off big time.

    Every thing I'm reading about this movie is awful, just awful...


    "- The new film will have an 80 million dollar budget, essentially guaranteeing it will be light on action and superheroics.

    - The story will come from the Ultimate Spider-Man comics, so expect lots of Yiddish. Well, maybe not, but expect lots of teen soap nonsense that Peter Parker outgrew within two years of the classic Amazing Spider-Man comics (he graduated high school in #28. Peter Parker juggling college, a job, Aunt May, his love life and Spider-Man is infinitely more interesting than Peter pretending to be a nerd and getting swirlies from Flash Thompson). As the Hollywood Reporter put it: 'villain-fighting took a back seat to the high school angst [in USM].

    - The cast will be all unknowns, so enough with the Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It was never going to happen.

    - The story will focus 'on a high school kid who is dealing with the knowledge that his uncle died even though the teen had the power to stop it.' So expect not just mopey emo nonsense, but a retelling of the origin story.

    Not mentioned in the story: Gwen Stacey and Mary Jane are both in the film at this point. Flash Thompson also plays a major role, in a love quadrangle sort of way."

    I good action movie can be made for 80 mil considering the cast and director aren't taking in a whole lot of the cost.

    210 million dollars was the budget for Spider-Man 2. That set the bar for Spider-Man movies.... with almost a 3rd of that for the new movie....well it does not bode well.

    While I think the hard core fans are going to spend quite a bit of time poo-pooing this, I believe it's a good approach. Peter Parker/Spider-Man's world seems perfectly suited to this style of story-telling.

    Aw, poor Gobby.

    Defoe will be quite an act to beat.
    And I hope when you think of me years down the line
    You can't find one good thing to say.
    And I hope that if I found the strength to walk out
    You'd stay the hell out of my way.
