        @jonspidey07 You need to find your love for the character himself and not be a fanboy of Sam's spidey... I love Christopher Nolan's Batman... best Batman we have ever seen... but does that mean when Batman will get rebooted I won't go see it... No! If you are truly a spider-man fan, you should give the character a chance and want to see him succeed..

              @symbiote09 as in quality of film, not Box Office numbers... It was a terrible, terrible film... I got horrible reviews, no matter how much money it made... A prime example of what happens when a studio gets way too involved...

                @jonspidey07 trust me when spiderman 1 came out I was obsessed with that movie but i was 12 years old. then spiderman 2 came out and it was my fav. comic book movie(until TDK came out) but 3 was just crap. c'mon venom asking for help to beat spidey? tobey and kristen where ok on 1 & 2 but by 3 they were just annoying. Andrew garfield beats tobey anyday in terms of acting.

                  @mcleve02 idk where you got your info from but spiderman 3 did not tanked. its one of the most successful movies ever, but not the best.

                      I still say SONY should be ashamed of themselves

                      they completely ruined any of my future desire to see this character on the big screen ever again

                      they changed way too much and Im not feeling it anymore

                      ask anybody else in the world who feels the same way I do

                      to hell with this reboot!

                        When studios, for the most part, get too involved in the creative process of a film it usually ends up crap.

                          Spiderman 3wasn't made the way Sam wanted. He was forced to include Venom and choose the actor by choice of the studio. They didnt let him do the story he wanted. They made him do it their way since he was under contract and what they "thought" was more bankable. Well they were wrong. Then since he was out of contract theu asked Sam to do a fourth one but he said only of he could do it hos way this time. Once again they said no, they wanted their own influence and spin on the project. This is also part of reason no more Jon Favreau behind directing 3rd iron.man but they at least made a good choice still with that one under Shane Black.

                            @mcleve02 Haha, lucky duck. I only had to pay 2 out of 3 times. Total, I've spent $30 on TDKR. $15 for the midnight IMAX premiere, and $7.50 for a matinee show, but I ended up paying for my friend too. O.o

                                @mcleve02 And the direction for part 4 was going down the drain either way

                                  @jonspidey07 Its because spider-man 3 was awful and tanked... So they did not give him another chance

                                      sorry but 2002-2007 was the Spider-Man for me

                                      even the 3rd movie which I will NOT apologize for

                                      Sam Raimi was on a roll and SONY should not have screwed around with him on #4

                                      my childhood, the hard-earned money and my devotion to this franchise went down the drain when they made this decision

                                      they should be ashamed of themselves for starting over in the first place

                                        @jonspidey07 I just think if you cared about the spiderman character at all. you would give anything spiderman related a chance. just like in the comics there are many different versions of spiderman.

                                          Just got home from watching The Dark Knight Rises. A fantastic movie. Hard to pick between it and the Dark Knight. But was no doubt great. Nolan, Bale, and the rest who are key to this movie are fools if they decided not to do more. This movie was a end to a beginning, not the end. This one no doubt capped off how Batman became the Ultimate crime fighter with no powers. How he came to terms with himself, his past, and having a future. I did not like two key story parts, which in the end was major impact points. But I feel neither was needed to tell this story at all. A fourth movie was no doubt set up with how this one ended, but I guess Nolan needs some sort of reason to do it. I think it was done the way he did in the end of the movie, to set up for the movie story to continue with him or with out. But in a manner he could do, which would give him leverage to make other movies he wants. In the end, may be 4 years until we either see him do the fourth Batman, or until WB decides to go on with it with out him.
