My Quick Thoughts on the Spider-Man Promos

You would think that the teaser trailer, poster, and promo pics would get me excited about The Amazing Spider-Man, but I can only shrug.

I think most of my indifference has more to do with the fact that I've reached super hero fatigue, which is why I haven't seen Thor and probably will not see Captain America either, than with the actual movie. It doesn't help that I'm still not on board with Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, but I have warmed up to the idea of Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy.

The funny thing about the trailer was it did not feel like a superhero movie at the beginning, and it looked like a film I'd really enjoy seeing. Then the spider bit Peter, and I remembered what the movie was about and lost all interest. Check it out for yourself...

Maybe by 2012 I'll be over my superhero apathy and will be able to muster some excitement about this wholly unnecessary reboot, but only time will tell.
