Mostly with the idea that somehow Spider-Man needs to be "darker" or "grittier" when it doesn't. In fact, that's my beef with alot of studio executives who are trying to make these things darker or grittier when some of they don't need to be...
Another thing that just irks me about the whole thing is that somehow they still haven't found a way to make Spider-Man swinging through the city NOT look like CG. That's one of the things that always bothered me about Raimi's films.
One of the more promising aspects of the film is that Steve Kloves is one of the screenwriters, who is also known as the man responsible for adapting almost the ENTIRE Harry Potter book series to film (he is the SOLE screenwriter for 7 of the films)...
I don't wanna be pensive, I wanna eat my words and have this be good. The trailer makes it look better, and makes it alot more interesting to me. But, I can't say I'm sold until I see more of it.
Ahhhhhh ok, ok. The dark gritty thing I think people are harping on that a little too much because I feel since they want to go deeper into what happened to Peter's family & Peter's life it is going to be a dark period. I mean I don't think it's going to have the same exact tones as Batman Begins & The Dark Knight had, but if this movie stays true to Peter being a wise-cracking teenager, him being a skinny, scrawny teenager compared to Tobey's spiderman & Marc Webb actually having good character development this should be a real good film.
And you said they still haven't figured out a way to make the city not look like CG. I agree with that but I also say that we'll just have to wait & see the final product to give a full judgement on that.
