Just your friendly neighborhood…

Sure, I desperately want to see the Avengers. And Dark Knight. And Prometheus. But even more than those? This: The Amazing Spider-Man.

Yes, it’s an origin story again, and yes, it’d be nice if it weren’t. But A) it looks like a take on it we haven’t seen before, and B) far more important, it looks, from what we’ve seen, like a Spider-Man movie that gets the character completely right. (Something that, as much as I loved the Maguire/Raimi movies–and I really did love them, at least the first two–they never quite managed to accomplish.)

I don’t care if it’s an origin story. I don’t care if it’s "too soon" for a reboot. It’s freakin’ Spider-Man.
