James Franco's Spider Senses Untingled By The Amazing Spider-Man

James Franco might like both the Kirsten Dunst and leaf-version of Mary Jane, but for him, there's only one true Peter Parker…

In a recent review of Man of Steel, James Franco gave the new Superman flick a positive assessment. However, in the course of his piece he was not so kind to The Amazing Spider-Man, mentioning that the reboot of the series was made "before there was time to bury the corpse of the old one." Whoa, harsh! Sounds like James has some serious Arachnophobia when it comes to newer Spidey films.

James, who played Harry Osborn in the previous Spider-Man trilogy directed by Sam Raimi, said in another interview that the remake was, "eh." And mind you, that's the bad "eh," not the thumbs-up Fonzie "ehhhh!"

Apparently, watching The Amazing Spider-Man left James with his spider senses very much un-tingled, as he continued his diss fest by saying this:

"I mean, they could have strayed a little bit more from the original. It's like, 'Why?' Well, I guess they made a lot of money. Congrats. Good for them. Sam and I moved on, we made 'Oz The Great And Powerful.'"

We'll wait for James as he finishes brushing his shoulders off. Meanwhile, the Amazing Spider-Man movies starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone show no signs of needing a reboot, mostly because they can't be stopped. With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 coming out May of 2014, the 3rd and 4th installments have just been green lit. In the end, the franchise will probably have more sequels than James Bond and The Land Before Time combined.

Do you think they rebooted Spider-Man too soon? Let us know here on our WEBsite.

    I'm not a bond fan but I'm assumign they were new stories. this is the same damn story over and over and it IS ridiculous and no I haven't seen it but did watch the other one

    I agree with him, Hollywood just keeps remaking the same movies over and over and over, there is no creativity in this, it's just another cash cow. What a waste of money… Hollywood gets richer over the same mindless dribble so people can remain distracted from the real issues happening in this world, while the rest of us continue to feel the effects of the economic crisis. When will it ever end?

    Hollywood must be out of ideas.
