I'm not as excited for this movie as much as the originals but I will still see it. I think that is too to the fact it is too soon for a reboot and it just feels weird seeing new actors and a restated story not that long after Spider-Man 3. I do like how the movie seems to be taking some pages from Ultimate Spider-Man which is cool.I think another reason for everyone being worried about this film is because the originals came out at a time when comic book movies were just starting to do all the big effects they can do now. Also I think people had gotten to love the cast and seeing those characters and now only 5 years later everything is starting again. I don't like how one of the tag lines though was "uncover spider-mans greatest secrets" that makes it sound like its a sequel.
It would be interesting is Marvel brought Gwen Stacey back to life after this movie to try and attract more female readers. Sure she is still alive in Ultimate Spider-Man but I remember how back in 2007 during Spider-Man 3 Marvel did back in Black and even though Marvel says they didn't bring Harry back to appeal to movie readers I beg to differ lol.
