See Spider-Man swing and hail a cab in these fuzzy set photos from the reboot; also, no J. Jonah Jameson?

01.18.2011

If you have an all-encompassing craving for knowledge of every phase of a big movie's production, you might be excited with the first unofficial pics of the famous spider-tights on display.

The UNTITLED SPIDER-MAN REBOOT, which will probably be renamed, is currently filming in Los Angeles. A fan captured some long-distance snaps of the action (click for more), evidence that he really does spin a web any size, and catches cabs just like flies. What about thieves? That remains unknown until the next round of blurry set pics.

UPDATE: Now there's also some Spidey stunt video up at TMZ.

On another note, IGN is claiming that the reason we haven't heard who will be playing Daily Bugle blowhard J. Jonah Jameson is because the character isn't in the movie. Huh?

Extra Tidbit: No photographer job for Pete? Maybe he'll be making a bundle off his magic web-fluid instead?

PLEASE!

Please please please have JK Simmons as J. J. J. again! He literally brought that role to life! And honestly if no JK then I don't even want the character in the movie.

probably. The lack of of blue fingers and no Impact Webbing cartridges around his wrist sort of keeps that from happening for me.

I don't understand the hate for this movie. Would you rather have had another emo spider man movie with badly miscast CGI villains?

No JJ makes sense

I doubt we'll see Peter at the Bugle at all in the first film. It'll probably mostly just him in high school and fighting bad guys. No need to introduce everyone in the first movie.

Watch out with saying that about HS or you may get screamed at like everyone on the forum board....they will gang up and call you ignorant for thinking it is in High School as we should all know it is in COLLEGE...

which is why I refuse to post over there anymore since that forum has been taken over by people who won't allow anything they believe is wrong or negative said about the film and will just attack you on it.

LOL, anyone who's an actual spidey fan (yes i said it) would know that Peter doesn't make it to college till about the mid 20's or so which is 2 years into the comic! I think the anti High School plp are the idiots who for some reason don't realize that this is an adaption of Ultimate Spider Man more then anything which from issue #1 to issue 130something has Peter in High school.

But in the end i'm completely confident in my Spidey fan boy knowledge so lets these pansies try to scream at me

Spidey was a real actor unless it was a fight scene or a ton of web swinging. You make it seem like he was cgi'd even when he was just standing around or something

Guess this is all I'll ever see if this...

Because this reboot represents a lack of new-movie creativity and a greed-driven Sony enterprise, I predict and hope that this fails miserably.

Did they really say no JJJ?

If Judy Dench can be M in the Bond reboot then JK Simmons can be JJJ in the Spiderman Reboot. Thumbs up?

NYC

To follow up on G Oldman's post ... the bottom photo has a somewhat blurry NYPD police car in the background. On the link of extra photos, 'The Daily Bugle' van has a 212 (Manhattan) area code.

Filming in LA? Guess it's easy to use CGI or whatever to fill in NYC, but still. I wonder if they'll add in the rebuilt WTC?, which opens in 2013, which means it might be built all the way when the movie comes out next summer.

Costume

Sorry if someone mentioned this already but, the second photo shows his back is quite different... isn't red... and maybe doesn't have the spider.

I'm a huge comic book fan but not a costume purist so I'm cool with the changes.

It feels like 2002 all over again...

I'm okay with everything so far except it being filmed in L.A. but I guess I'll learn to live with it. He looks kinda awkward in the third pic to me, kinda like handyman [link]

Am I the only one who thinks Samuel L. Jackson would make a great Robbie?

Photography might not be in the cards, yet?

Maybe he just has not reached that point in his life for the job? Probably in the 2nd picture. Still don't want Gwen to die =( Always enjoyed her character more than Mary Jane and love Emma...

It is pretty troubling that they're shooting this in LA (and right next to the Disney Concert Hall, one of the most recognizable LA landmarks) when Spidey is very much a New York set story.

BUT, it DOES seem like they've added a lot of taxis to the scene (There aren't that many taxis in LA) and it doesn't seem as though they were shooting any of the buildings. So it's probably still set in New York and this is just a couple street scenes being shot here.

It also seems like they're going

It also seems like they're going for the big eyed Ultimate mask. It's hard to tell but I'm pretty sure it has big eyes.

I don't really know what to say about the lack of JJJ. J.K. Simmons gave a perfect performance and I can't think of anyone who could top it. On the other hand, it would be difficult to make a Spidey story without him working as a photographer.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I think the eyes will be bigger, also. And LA might be cheaper than NY ? They shot Beerfect in New Mexico when it was supposed to be in, well...Europe...

Yeah, I'm guessing it's just cheaper to shoot it in LA and they'll just avoid any distinctive buildings here.

About your comment about this being set before he gets the job, I thought about that but it just doesn't seem like there is enough story there.

I mean, he gets the job when he first enters the city. He's definitely going to be in college (They've hired Rhys Ifans as Conners who would be his Professor) so he'll be in the city.

I'm just not sure how they'll do this without him being a

There just isn't much pre-Daily Bugle story for Spidey.

Hate the costume.

Yeah...don't see why they had to re-design it so much. Looks more like House of M Spider-Man. When it seems all other aspects are trying to be more faithful than the Raimi films, they really went in the opposite direction with the costume. They should have just stuck with the classic design, black webs with brighter colors and a spider logo that wasn't lifted from the Raimi-verse. That would have been different enough to separate the old from the new.

AWESOME!

No CGI bullshit (at least for a few scenes). I can finally see what the peeps are going for with this one and I'm digging it. Also, no JJJ? That would suck unless there was a good reason for it.

New York City's fucking expensive to shoot big movies in, it's also easier to shoot action scenes. A large portion of Raimi's first Spider-Man was shot in LA, and the third shot in NYC, LA, and CLEVELAND. It's not a big deal. They'll make it look like New York. And for all we know, they are going to shoot some stuff in NYC as well.

They filmed one of the main action sequences of Captain America in Manchester, England. Certainly looked more like New York when I walked through the set before they took them down.

It keeps the budget down and set designers do a great job so it's never really noticeable.

Boo on this movie. They should have just re-cast and continued where spider-man 3 left off. No damn origin story! He gets bit, we all know it! Move on. And first no MJ, now no JJ? What gives?

No JJJ is a great idea. You simply can NOT re-cast JJJ because JK Simmons was so perfect in the role. Better to avoid it altogether. Still have my doubts because I hate Ultimate Spidey but we'll see...

You know, I can't even look at those pictures without hearing Elfman's fantastic Spiderman theme in my head. It is one of films greatest themes, and whoever does the score for this reboot will have some big shoes to fill. And say what you will about Raimi's films, but they had the best main titles of any film this past decade.

Really excited for this movie after everything I have seen and to see the cast in action.

But how the hell does J. Jonah Jameson not make an apperance in the new Spiderman movies? If they are actually serious about making this a whole nother franchise, then he is vital to the first movie. I mean it's a origins movie.
