The Amazing Spider-Meh 2

This week director Mark Webb (is that supposed to be a pun?) unveiled the new costume for The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Even Amazinger.

It would appear that after I savagely mocked the previous suit on my highly influential blog (which reportedly made Webb sob during the Golden Globe awards), it's been completely redesigned. I'm glad to see Hollywood's finally come to its senses and is listening to me.

Gone are the odd gold colored eye-pieces and the odder basketball-like texture that plagued the previous costume.

This "new" suit looks suspiciously like the old one from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy. In fact it looks pretty much identical to my eyes. So tell me again: What was the point of rebooting this series already? Didn't the filmmakers say they were trying to distance themselves from the first trilogy and give us a "fresh, new take" on the character? And they do that by digging the first suit out of mothballs

You know, I'm beginning to think that people in Hollywood will say just about anything to sell a movie ticket.
