The Amazing Spider-Man

Leaked to the internet unofficially, and then officially, just in time for the San Diego Comic-Con, here it is, the trailer you’ve been waiting for…

From all indications, it looks like we’ll have to deal with the origin again, we’ll have mechanical web-shooters, and perhaps they will be revealing what happened to Peter’s parents. The villains might be the Green Goblin (again?) and/or the Lizard. The Amazing Spider-Man opens July 3, 2012.

Broadway’s Green Goblin?

The rumor mills are churning, saying that Alan Cumming may be cast as the Green Goblin in Julie Taymor’s “Spider-Man: Turn Out the Dark.”

Alan Cumming is an inspired choice, visually at least. Now while I can see it, I’m not sure that Cumming can pull off the evil necessary for the character. I don’t want to say it, but maybe Alan might not be ‘butch’ enough for the Goblin. That said, who knows what kind of production this will be. Julie Taymor has described her $40 million “Turn Out the Dark” as both a ‘rock and roll musical’ and a ‘circus spectacle,’ and frankly that scares me.

Perhaps Taymor will do to Spider-Man what Joel Schumacher did to Batman – only with singing and dancing. Let’s hope not. Brrr…
