It’s nice to see Gwen Stacy in this. Let’s be honest, Gwen was in all three Raimi movies. They just gave her red hair and slapped the name Mary Jane Watson on her. Then MJ showed up for a little bit in the third movie, but with her hair bleached.
Spider-Man is actually funny. Grant he mumbles a lot, but I like this guy better than Maguire already. Toby can act, but he had maybe a little more charisma than Hayden Christensen.
Lizard is looking better. Not a fan of the design. But better. I still wish he had the lab coat and a snout.
I am sure that, if George Stacy survives this movie, he’ll become Spidey’s supporter among the police.
Am I in love with what I’m seeing? No. I still don’t like the costume. But while the Raimi trilogy had a more faithful costume, they took a lot more liberty with the characters. This is taking a lot more liberties with costumes and look, but seems to be a lot more faithful to the characters. And that always wins with me.
If they introduce MJ, and at some point either in this movie or the next, they will…. I am expecting that classic introduction.
