Continuing my series of watching famous geek movies I have never watched before, we now look at the Amazing Spider-Man. Amazing Spider-Man was a reboot Sony did to renew the franchise. Was it any good? We shall see. Once again, I start with snarky comments, and then go to final thoughts that are super spoilerish.
To start off the then-new decade in 1990, Marvel launched six new titles, dubbing them the “Heroes for the 90’s”. These titles were well set to catch the wave of the speculator boom of the 1990s. But were they a success? On the 25th anniversary of the last of the six to get published, we are looking back at these six titles and see how well they did: Robocop, Namor the Submariner, Ghost Rider, Guardians of the Galaxy, The New Warriors, and Spider-man.
