What A Relief!

What a relief!
 
My oldest grandson Hunter has been asking for months if a new Spiderman movie is ever going to be made. It’s starting to tick him off! But I just saw today on Heidi MacDonald’s The Beat blog all the details that apparently Spiderman 4 & 5 will be made, at the same time for economics, and Tobey McQuire and director Sami Rami are committed. To say that Hunter is a Spiderman fan, and superhero fan, is putting the word ‘fan’ midly.
 
The first time he went to a movie theatre he was two years old and my wife and I took him to see the first Spiderman movie. (We saved his ticket for him.) We figured it’d last 15 minutes for him and he’d be ready to go. Nope. He was hypnotized. Transfixed. Totally enthralled by the movie and character. We had a great time.
 
He and his brother and cousins have a bazillion superhero action figures, costumes, coloring books, Playstation games, DVDs, you name it, they got it (I almost went broke buying Ironman merchandise earlier this year). They love all the superhero movies and cartoons (new ones and old) but Hunter has a special affinity for Spidey and Mary Jane.
 
Can’t wait to tell him! Of course, now he’ll be asking repeatedly (like Bart & Lisa) for the next couple years, ‘When is the new Spiderman movie coming out? ‘When is the new Spiderman movie coming out? ‘When is the new Spiderman movie coming out? ‘When is the new Spiderman movie coming out? ‘When is the new Spiderman movie coming out? ‘When is the new Spiderman movie coming out?….”
