Spider-Man Reboot

Calm down internets. Your new Peter Parker has been named. It's not going to be a nerdy black guy - which it should have been to give African Americans a presence in the nerd-turned-masked vigilante superhero universe - no instead they've decided that the All-American nerdy teenager bitten by a radioactive spider on a field trip should be a 27 year old British dude. Because that makes more sense. Right?

Andrew Garfield, who co-starred in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus and The Red Riding Trilogy, and who will be in David Fincher's The Social Network, has won the role.

Now, there seems to be a trend in Marvel movie making where every three weeks or films (whichever comes first) you get a re-boot. Anyone want to tell me why this happens? Is it because of Batman? Or are we just all so stupid we're going to keep rewarding this type of behavior?

And as I'm saying this, I'm reminded that people were standing in line for a broken iPhone 4, while texting on their iPhone 3 about how excited they were about standing in line... never mind.

I think I'll just send a check straight to Stan Lee rather than wasting the 2 hours watching this.
