Related Strips: #796: Strange Bedfellows
Some of your comments on Monday’s strip were extra amusing to me in light of this strip.
Anyway. It occurred to me as I was scripting this strip that it really gets at one of the central themes in this phase of Multiplex: the movie industry and movie theater industry’s rapidly changing states at this time. It seems like the industry has changed more in the last seven years than in the thirty before it, because of home video, because of digital downloads and streaming, and any number of other factors.
Hopefully I’m not just indulging myself by focusing on these topics for the next… while… but it seems natural to me that the characters would have to deal with them.

They’re showing all kinds of too much in this teaser trailer, I think, but it looks pretty great… despite the stupid character designs on the villains. (I was one of those people who enjoyed Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man flick quite a bit; the major clunky parts being where they seemed to think they needed to change up Uncle Ben’s death and other bits of canon, just to make it different from Raimi’s version.)
Bonus points: this is the best Spidey’s costume has ever looked in film. I hope Sony never changes the suit again (unless they do the black costume for a movie or two).
