Amazing Spider-Man

So I recently wrote an article detailing my thoughts on the new trailer for this summer's Spider-Man reboot over on Flickering Myth available here

Part of me is still really excited. I remember liking the first teaser trailer, Garfield and Ifans are both awesome, and the action in this trailer, especially the fights between Spidey and the Lizard that will take place in the sewer and on the ceiling of what looks like a school, look absolutely great.

But I'm bored with the super-serious, dark and gritty tone, and while re-interpreting a character is fine, making one of my all-time favourite comic book character him into a whining, moping jerk just doesn't seem like a good idea...
