YBLTV Giveaway: Funko, LLC. POP! Lights: Marvel – Spider-Man
The CES Show is right around the corner. We’ll be interested to see how movies and consumer electronics continue to merge and how their impact is ever-growing in today’s world of always-on tech.
The latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise was a success because of what was not in it. No “radioactive spider origin” storyline. No “saving the would-be girlfriend from the villain” storyline, and no “with great power comes great responsibility, should I be Spider-Man or shouldn’t I be Spider-Man” storyline.
There was on the other hand plenty of comedic moments driven by misplaced teenage angst, hormonal miscalculation and a handful of uncomfortable nerd-teens with there own unique deficiencies. All that very funny high school comedy was wonderfully tempered with big action sequences, inventive tech gadgets, a formidable villain and the presence of Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man) and his favorite underling Happy Hogan.
As the Marvel Comic Universe expands and develops there is a definite episodic feel to the movies. The cross-pollination of characters has created entertainment opportunities that allows for super-fresh encounters and storyline possibilities.
It is safe to say that Spider-Man is now fully embedded in the Marvel Comic Universe. This newest rendition of the wall-crawler is authentic and true to the original Peter Parker.
