@oursin_360: Nah, it's still being produced by Sony and they'll still reap all the box office money and awards. From what I've read it's an agreement in-place between Sony and Disney where Spider-Man will be added to the Marvel Universe films and will be able to make guest appearance and appearance in future films and Marvel films. Not sure what kind of money agreement was put in place but having Spider-Man appear in continuity with the Marvel franchises is suppose to just be good business for both studios. In a perfect world Disney would love to have Spider-Man back, but he's such an iconic and popular superhero figure that there's no way Sony would give him up without a fight. The only reason why this can take place is because Disney and Sony executives have a good standing relationship with each other, compared to say Marvel and Fox where I just found out Marvel is rumored to be killing off the comic book marvel franchises owned by Fox (Fantastic Four and X-Men) in order to stop promoting them out of spite for them.

@dudeglove: Are you kidding me? Bond was like married for 5 minutes before his wife croaked. Harry Tasker truly loves only 2 women, his wife and daughter.

@getz: I don't think the recap is all that necessary to play 4 unless you really want to know what's happening. I do think it's important though to have at least a general understanding of the returning characters and what their relationship is to the other characters. From what I remember Yakuza 4 starts off a few years after 3 and kinda starts off a whole new storyline.

Make Green Arrow into a Amazon Trail learning game. Take the bow and arrow and shoot the fish.

For those who are complaining about another origins, I definitely hear you on that one but I don't think Sony is stupid enough to do another origins re-tell. From what I can tell the new films are a semi-reboot. New director, actor, writer, but they'll continue the story back to when Peter Parker was in high school and he's already been Spidey for a few years already. He's supposedly suppose to make a cameo appearance in next years Captain America 3: Civil War film.

I for one am thrilled that they are continuing Peter Parker in high school as it's something different from other mainstream super heroes films we've seen. The only other super hero film I've seen that has tried to tackle the same situation is Kick-Ass, but that was kinda it's own thing. I think where Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed besides a pretty poor script was graduating Peter Parker in the beginning of the film. At that point instead of just the conflict of struggling between normal life / spidey life you are now faced with adult problems Peter, and once you do that you're now rehashing the storyline of the Raimi trilogy.

Dunno much about the actor, but I do like that he actually LOOKS like a Peter Parker. That was the one thing that bugged me about Andrew Garfield - he was way too good looking and 'cool' to be Pete and did things that comic book/cartoon Pete never would've done. Peter's just a socially-awkward average looking nerd who happens to get super-powers, but when he's not Spider-Man, he's still Pete. That's why I thought Toby was great as him in 1 and 2.

It's like Batman. I think Keaton was the better Batman, but Bale was the better Bruce Wayne. Garfield was a better Spider-Man, but Toby was a better Peter. I'm hoping they go the Incredible Hulk route and that it doesn't focus too much on the origin story yet again but make it known that here's what happened and here's an adventure and that it sets up for the next Avengers/Civil War movies smoothly.

I always thought the Amazing Spider-Man movies with Andrew Garfield were trying to implement more of the Ultimate Universe Peter Parker in that films storyline. Alot of the references to Richard Parker, Peter's dad in the movies, is the Ultimate's take on Peter's parents being super scientist. In the Ultimate comics Richard also leaves clues for Peter in order to discover what happened to them.

Ultimate universe Peter also isn't your prototypical nerd in a sense but probably more of the shy, loner type who also happens to be very intelligent. They only show for a brief moment maybe the first 4 or 5 issues how Peter Parker looked and acted before being bit but he had alot of the traits of the same Peter in the film. I remind you that Ultimate Universe began publishing in 2000 so the definition of what a nerd in high school had changed a bit to when main universe Peter Parker was in high school.
