A Spidey’s Eye View

05.15.12 Bucky Turco

The first three Spider-Man movies sucked. They were corny and the casting of Tobey Maguire always had me rooting for the villains, none of whom were ever that menacing, making the franchise that much more unenjoyable. Then it was announced that he would be fired and a shadier Peter Parker would assume the role of the web-slinger and I decided to give it a bit of a chance. Above is one of three new promo posters that shows the city from Spidey’s POV, which is defined as a giant arachnid stretching from Midtown to about Union Square.

So, does that mean he’s swinging from the Empire State Building?
