It doesn’t matter if Spiderman is a repeat idea because there are enough people worldwide who can’t get enough of the super hero movies and will go see it for no other reason than to compare it to the original.

The Amazing Spiderman
Is it just me, or does anyone else think Hollywood is past scraping the bottom of the barrel for film ideas? Just saw Captain America (awesome BTW) and there was a movie trailer for…
“The Amazing Spiderman” (2012)
I rolled my eyes and shook my head. The original Spiderman came out in 2002, and Spiderman 3 was released in 2007.
I saw this same phenomena with “Hulk” (2003) and “The Incredible Hulk” (2008).
I guess film movie licensing rights aren’t good for more than 5 years. Or, maybe they have a different strategy… sort of like the reasoning that must have prompted Disney to make the movie “Beverly Hills Chihuahau.”
If they add the number of people living in Southern California with the number of people across the United States who own a Chihuahua or other toy dog—they can make any ridiculous low-budget movie they want if they think even 1/20th of the niche market they’ve isolated will go see it.
Anyone else have any ideas why there’s a need to remake Spiderman?
Kimberlee Turley grew up in California where she earned a degree in Fashion Design from FIDM in 2005. Soon after, she married her husband, who was neither Mr. Darcy nor Edward Cullen, but he’d read her atrocious first novel and said it was “good” with a straight face.
