Spider-man TV Spots: The Picks!!

And so it begins!! More Lizard, more swinging about!! Avengers had a rip roaring success with their TV Spots – though the suspicion is that it was successful because everyone wanted to go and see the Avengers. Never-the-less, in the competitive world of the movies, expect to see TV Spots all over the shop. Excluding the Dark Knight which knows how to run a media campaign. With that in mind however the TV Spots do give us some insight into what is about to hit us in the face.

Little moment of Gwen Stacy time. (Spoiler Alert to non-comic book readers) This is a slightly disconcerting character idea but never the less, everyone’s favourite ex-President Martin Sheen is good ol’ Uncle Ben just waiting to get blown away in the background and Pete’s parents are making an appearance so clearly one of them might make it (unlikely). Hard to believe that the trilogy of films will literally be the steady decimation of every side character in Spider-man’s world. Where’s Harry and MJ for christ’s sake? I know one goes nuts and the other one gets deleted by a continuity minded master of the Netherworlds but still – it’d be nice to see someone make it through a little further. Poor Ol’ Pete.

Still, maybe the Lizard’ll make it… Why have I never noticed how many people get wiped out when associated withePeter Parker. He’s like the Jessica Fletcher of comic books.

Quick Head Count: Avengers TV Spot


TV Spot – presumably in the US – with new, unseen footage of the not-so-jolly green giant in action. This bit offers up only a little more detail on what is a pretty exciting trailer except for showing quite a formidable squad of seemingly undead alien beasties bounding around New York. Of course, it makes it obviosu just as quickly that one will last three seconds against the Hulk but what do you expect – that the Avengers won’t win? Saying that – it’s Whedon – so I would assume nothing.
