    I was just thinking, it's been at least 3 months since we've had a new spider-man movie.

    Still on such a high from Into the Spider-Verse... but hot damn, this is looking good!

    More negative impressions than positive (which I shared in the forums). Won't be great the way Into the Spider-Verse was. Won't be as fun as the Amazing Spider-Man films, Venom, or Spider-Man 2. Will still see it in theaters as soon as reasonably possible and own it on Bluray, while complaining about it extensively in the forums.

    Side note: If you dig this type of story, check out Dan Slott & Giuseppe Camuncoli's "Amazing Spider-Man: Worldwide" comics. This looks very indebted to that run.

    Looks good, but where's the bowl that's suppose to be Jake Gyllenhaal's face?

    Edit: I see it

    hopelessly yours, Alabama

    I really hope Gyllenhaal took this role because it's well-written and has great scenes, and not because it's going to pay like crazy. He's one of my favorite actors and I hope the movie is killer.

    I mean, if Prince of Persia is any indication he's going to be great.

    There's no harm in getting paid, especially since he still takes a lot of interesting roles too.

    That’s tight that you already saw it man! Tell me how Peter comes back after Endgame while you’re at it!

    Peter comes back via a song and dance number. Only Peter, though.

    You're telling me that you've never had an educated guess on how you'll feel about a movie, based on the trailer, past films, creatives involved, etc.?

    My biggest hope at the moment is that this is a better version of Homecoming, and in that best case scenario, the film still falls below the films I listed. (I currently question if ANY comic book film could hope to surpass Into the Spider-Verse, tbh.) But, there's not a Spider-Man film I don't own or can't enjoy, so the same will happen here.

    Sure I have but that’s all that is... a guess.

    You’re making super bold statements about a film that hasn’t come out yet and you said it’s not gonna be as fun as the Amazing Spider-Man films which made me laugh out loud since those films are not fun at all - they’re just awful.

    Also, Homecoming was incredible if you ask me and this is coming from someone who was legit dreading another Spidey film after the garbage ASM films. I was convinced Sony would screw it up and wasn’t sure about Jon Watts or the writing team but I was completely wrong and it’s now tied with Spider-Man 2 as my personal favorite Spidey film.

    I'm not into "my favorite is better than your favorite" arguments outside of opportunities to talk about why I like what I like. Homecoming is my third least favorite Spider-Man-related film, above only Spider-Man & Spider-Man 3. But, I'm glad people dig it (especially since Sony's current approach to the property means we don't all have to settle for the same take).

    Before Into the Spider-Verse (which, let's be real, is the only truly great Spider-Man film; fans of all 3 actors' takes should be able to meet in the middle on this fact), the first Amazing Spider-Man film was the most times I saw a movie in theaters. And, ASM2's highlights are the high-water mark of live action Spider-Man. I understand why not everyone loves those films. But, for me, the pros easily outweigh the cons. Such charming, fun films dripping with personality, in spite of the overstuffed plot in need of trimming.

    Oh well. 2019 will be an excellent year for Spider-Man comics. I have more Spider-Verse animated films and Venom 2 to look forward to. And, like Homecoming, I'm sure Far From Home will have some good elements (I'm pumped for more Zendaya). What a time to be a Spider-Man fan. :spiderman::miles::venom:

    So, Mysterio is faking those Elemental s to get fame I'm imagining.

    I think this will be fun. I doubt it's going to go as hard as Homecoming because that just had the inpressive factor of being a not-shit Spiderman film, but I doubt I'm not going to enjoy this.

    Plus, Gyllenhaal. Always good value.
