JustJared of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in (civilian) costume as the new Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy...One of my New Year's resolutions is to try being less unkind to the ill-advised "Spider-Man" reboot - for example, I resolve not to revive the "Spiderlight" nickname until there's solid proof that it's still going that route. With that in mind, here are some snaps from
...and I have no real issue with what I'm seeing. I don't care that he's not wearing glasses or other outward "Puny Parker" signifiers - modern update, fashion shifts, etc. I find nothing especially elevating or depressing about this image - it's a nonentity, and says nothing out of context other than that Garfield is simply not passing for a highschooler here and, let's face it, neither did Tobey Maguire.
In fact, I only bring it up because according to The Internet I'm supposed to be INFURIATED at his fingerless gloves as a sign that they've made him into a "hipster" - at this point the most meaningless "insult" in the popular culture.
So... yeah. HEADLINE: MovieBob has no issue with Spider-Man's choice in gloves, I guess...
