The Amazing Spider-Man was an excellent film, a reboot that hits similar beats as the original, but manages to stay fresh. I hope 2 will have Goblin and the death of Gwen Stacy and maybe introduce Eddie Brock, MJ, and JJJ/The Daily Bugle. The third could then involve Venom and maybe Doc Oc or some other villain (don't just want to be the same villains as in Raimi's trilogy) while Spider-Man uncovers the full truth about his parents (maybe SHIELD, if Sony and Disney can come to an agreement?).

@basquat Heh, neither are you. Catwoman has been known to "team up" with Batman, usually to serve her own ends, but then turns around and does her own thing. This spot reveals nothing major.

@basquat And how much of Bane have you seen, apart from just brief clips and the prologue? Joker was dominating the marketing of Dark Knight until Ledger passed away, then they shifted around.

@basquat Remember how we all thought that with The Dark Knight, then found out we were mostly completely wrong?
The way they're setting this up, I feel like this is almost the only way to go from here. And it sounds awesome!!!
They couldn't come up with a title, so they just used only the most generic, overused word in modern cinema. Smart...
@soccerkid10 You clearly have never actually used a Blu-Ray before.
I'm sorry, but as soon as Robert Downey Junior left the project, I completely lost interest. The fact that they got Franco, who is nothing like Downey, just shows they're just trying to get a big name attached to a recognizable property, good filmmaking and storytelling pushed aside. Why don't they make an adaptation of "Wicked?" That would make a whole lot more sense!

@cheetoboy But didn't they drop a line in JP3 about them messing with dino DNA, making said Spinosaurus more fierce than it really was?

Seriously, at the rate this movie's been going, I wouldn't be surprised if this happened.
@cheetoboy Yeah, I've heard nothing about it for a long time. It was already slated for a 2012 release, which clearly won't happen, before getting delayed a couple of years. Hopefully, it won't get delayed any more and will also convince Toho to come back and make more G-films!
Having grown up watching Godzilla movies like crazy, I can honestly say this is my most-hyped movie of 2013!

@cheetoboy Yeah, I called Cars 2 awful comparing it with other Pixar films, but on its own, it's not too bad. Pixar's standards have been just so high, that when they make one that comes up a little short, it seems a lot worse. Still looking forward to seeing Brave and I think lowered expectations will help my enjoyment of the film.

It looks like Pixar is going through a creative slump at the time. Cars 2 was, as expected, awful and Brave's early reviews seem to be less than impressive and considering Dan Scanlon's only previous Pixar experience was storyboarding Cars and directing a Cars short, I don't have a lot of faith in this one.

I think The Good Dinosaur will be Pixar's return to form, as Bob Peterson, who has been involved in Pixar since the beginning, will be making his Pixar directorial debut. Then, we'll get another Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich for the next couple of years after that, so Pixar's future is looking bright, just not its immediate future.

The only way I would support this is if Darren Aronofsky or Chris Nolan were involved in rebooting them and we all know that will NEVER happen.

@thedude1 Amen, brother!
For an R-rated movie, $50 million is very impressive! Hopefully, this will warrant a sequel, because I seem to be one of the few who thought Prometheus was criminally underrated and misunderstood. If you notice, most negative reviews have been based on the the movie simply not being what they thought it would be.
Let. It. DIE ALREADY!!!!!
He said Transformers 3 was his last film! $1 billion says otherwise.
