I saw the trailer again for this new Spider-Man sequel running before CAPTAIN AMERICA last weekend. It definitely looks like they're putting a bunch of emphasis on the special effects in this one. Things can only get better as far as this reboot's record with CGI goes, what with that fake-looking lizard dude from the last movie straying into the so bad it was funny territory. I also noted how little of Emma Stone there is in the trailer. Granted, it's just the trailer, so no surprise that the explosions and shiny things take precedence there. Still, trailers do like to emphasize the eye candy as well. That gets me to speculating. It's no big secret that Emma's Gwen Stacy character gets bumped off in the comics. Emma's been tight lipped on the topic of her character's demise in her interviews for this movie, but I nonetheless get the sense that she is going to bite it in this one somehow. Too bad for her, but I'm not ashamed to say that this would make me happy. We need to eliminate all things that threaten to make Emma a blonde again. It's a moral imperative that she stay ginger.
