I like the base concept of "Fury trains Spider-Man to be a better superhero" (even though I hate the Iron Spider suit). I just don't like his voice, the humor, or the overall NOISENOISENOISESHOOTSHOOTSHOOTWHOOOOOAAAA nature of this trailer.

Sure is! Probably the coolest part of the trailer.
It's not that this looks BAD, per se. The problem is that it has a tough act to follow. We just had an animated Spider-Man series a couple of years ago and it was damn good! Told great stories, had some terrific voice acting, and had fantastic character work. I never cared about Gwen Stacy and Tombstone as much as I did during that show. This new Spider-Man series is going to have to be some great stuff to top that.
And on that same note, Drake Bell is not doing it for me as Spidey. As unrealistic as the idea was, I wish they'd have brought back Josh Keaton.
I can't decide whether I like this or not. I really like Damian Lewis, so this is probably going to stay on the DVR rotation for awhile to see where the overarching mystery goes. Overall, good pilot. The tractor at the end was dumb though.
