they're *yawn* rebooting Spiderman. again.


the only way they'd get my attention is by rebooting the backstory. like, a Spidey of Latin American descent. or hey, you know, they could do a Latina Spider-Girl. THERE ARE PRECEDENTS GOD DAMNIT.

but then, I am probably biased. I mean, Jaime Reyes. Anya Corazon. it's hard *not* to be biased.

also, you know who the coolest XMFC mutant was? Armando fucking Muñoz. and they fried him halfway through the picture.

tangentially related, while I'm on the subject, at the end of XMFC, the lineup of supposedly "good" mutants was as follows:

Charles Xavier
Hank McCoy
Alex Summers
Sean Cassidy

talk about your bastions of anglo-saxon male hegemony. all the women/people of colour were on the "bad" team. to be clear: I'm not saying I disagreed with them for being there because yes, Magneto was right and Erik was *clearly* the better choice and doing so proved their good judgment. in fact, afaic, Erik's side is in the right and Charles' entourage would obviously take their brains out and play with them if they had any.

I have to wonder, was this deliberate? were the screenwriters/director/whoever trying to make a convoluted yet politically relevant statement?

...yeah, no, I kind of doubt it. most people don't think in double helices corkscrews.
