I kind of wish this was an EXCLUSIVE SNEAK-PEEK at the new Spider-Man movie, rather that just some fun Photoshop from a fun photo gallery (via Internet). Right? As a people, we’ve definitely lost a sense of what awkward adolescence of radioactive supernerds was like in the 1300s or whenever this is supposed to be. 1492? Is that Columbus? Just kidding, you guyyyyyyys. I know the picture isn’t that old. It’s Vietnam, I think? ANYWAY: Spider-Man, you guys. Such a gentleman! Goodwife Mary Jane over there thinks he cuts a very dashing figure in his uniform. What do you think? Here’s an idea: why don’t you translate what you think into a caption for this photo and then post that caption in the comments. How’s that for an idea, chaps? Bully!

  10. You know how hard it is to find a radioactive spider these days?

  11. The first official shot from the forthcoming Spiderman reboot received a lukewarm reception from fans, who described the new black ad white look as “TOTALLY for, like, old people and stuff, I bet my parents like this they like old people music and I hate them and there should totally, like, respect my individuality and desire to have a totally cool new Spiderman who shoots Pez instead of webs and GET OUT OF MY ROOM I’M TRYING TO COMMENT ON WE<3SP1D3RMAN.COM OH MY GOD I HATE YOU SO MUCH".

    Hurrah! Hurrah!
    He’ll spin a web of any size
    He’ll catch the enemy just like flies
    And we’ll shout “Look out,

  17. Wow, that musical HAS been pushed back

  18. This picture was taken when Spidermen could enjoy their racist soap without judgement.

  19. Dearest Mary Jane,

    The war is long and hard. Dr. Doom has gathered his forces of evil and they’re making a stand at his fortress in Latveria. In a hard fought battle with Hobgoblin and Mysterio, three members of the fantastic four were killed. Only The Thing survived. The Flash and I have erected a sonic fence. I only hope that it can keep Carnage at bay. I long to be home in Manhattan, holding you again.

    Yours truly,


  20. “Is your hand warm now Spidey?”

  21. I was under the impression that the spider-suit was his “uniform”… Does this out Spider-Man as some sort of Never-Nude? Lawblog, I need clarification here

  25. Of course, Susan was overjoyed to have Frank home again. The two years he had spend oversees had been almost unbearable. With no children in the house, Susan would often sit for hours listening to the ticking grandfather clock, wanting so desperately to know where he was, if he was unharmed. Friends would come by on Saturdays, equipped with half-smiles and covered dishes, assuring her that he would be home soon. She would nod and say that she knew, but that was a great lie. Strangely, laundry became almost torturous, for there were no shirts to iron.

    But now he was home and the house was different because of his return. There was his weight on the floor, his smell in the bed. Still, Susan could sense he was different somehow. War had changed him. When she asked him any question about the past two years, his voice became distorted like a weak radio signal and he physically wilted. He told her everything was fine, but that was a greater lie.

    Also, there was the whole thing where he refused to take off the spiderman mask.

  26. “My spider-sense is tingling.”

    “That’s just your PTSD, dear.”

  30. “‘Uber-mensch this’, ‘Uber-mensch that’… ‘Oh, save me, Uber-mensch!’… What about the Spinne-mensch, huh? No one ever calls Spinne-mensch for help… No one ever picks up Spinne-mensch’s bar tab… I bet he gets laid all the time, and I’m stuck with this old hag. Last night she called me ‘Uber-mensch’ in bed… What the hell is wrong with me?”

  31. I had no idea that Gabe was Spiderman!

    Spider-Man: “You’ll find it AMAZING how they will eatchyo ass on up when they are born because that is a fact that baby spiders do that kind o shit. Word.”

  35. Hand holding is his reward.

  36. Ken Burns wasn’t Sony’s first choice to to direct the Spiderman reboot, but he was the last choice and he was the right choice.

  37. “Come back with your web or on it.”

  39. Goodbye-ee, goodbye-ee,
    Wipe the tear, Mary Jane, from your eye-ee,
    Tho’ it’s hard to part I know,
    My spidey sense is telling me to go.
    Don’t cry-ee, dont sigh-ee,
    there’s a Silver Surfer in the sky-ee,
    Bonsoir, old thing, cheer-i-o, chin, chin,
    Nah-poo, toodle-oo, Goodbye-ee.

    –Spiderman’s last words to Mary Jane before shipping out to the trenches. (Little known fact, Spiderman was an enthusiastic anglophile.)

  40. This puts the cobwebs on all of Grandma’s old pictures in a new light…

  41. Our Baby Friday

    Adoring his reparte

    And to be her provider
    ‘Til Teacherman stole her away

  42. In the armed forces, advancement on issues concerning race proved slow. It would take many more years, as well as an executive order signed by President Truman, before a young black man was allowed to fill the position of Spiderman.

  43. DongLover for Spidey 4 eva!

  44. Imagine if they had spider babies, and then the spider babies ate the lady (because spiders eat their mother when they are born. Did you guys know that? About spiders eating their mothers. Just thought I’d tell you. You know, that spiders eat their mothers. Just in case nobody else had mentioned it.).

  45. “Some men say war is hell. Those men obviously don’t share my enthusiasm for dress-ups.”

  46. Were this Spider-Man mask a Time Spider-Man mask.

  49. [Fade up, Exterior photo studio DAY, cut to interior photo studio]

    (Spiderman, in uniform, stands with Mary Jane, in the clothing of the era. The camera man prepares his equipment in the foreground, his face is not shown. Mary Jane adjusts her clothes and, happy to be with her boyfriend, smiles proudly. Spiderman appears to be stuggling internally with a great burden. Mary Jane smiles at him and he nervously smiles back, but you can’t see it because he is wearing a mask.)

    Spiderman (thinking): How am I going to tell her? What if she breaks up with me? I don’t know what I’d do without her.

    MJ (thinking): How can I tell him? What if he breaks up with me? I don’t know what I’d do without him.

    Photographer, (off camera): Ok we’re all set.

    [Spiderman turns to Mary Jane and holds her hands, staring deep into her eyes, but again you cannot tell because he wears a mask]

    Spiderman: Mary Jane, I have to tell you something.

    MJ: I have to tell you something as well.

    Spiderman: You go first.

    MJ: I want to have a baby.
    [{FLASH}, A picture is taken]

    Spiderman: I do too my love, but I have bad news.

    MJ: What is it?

    Spiderman: I ship out tomorrow.
    [{FLASH}, another picture is taken, Mary Jane is making a face like she was just punched in the boob]

    Spiderman: I don’t know what to do…
    [The camera whips around showing the face of the photographer. It's Steve Winwood, dressed similarly to a Newsie.]

    Steve Winwood: Bro, put your spider jizz inside of her.

    [Seemingly validated and confident in Steve Winwood's master plan, Spiderman and MJ stand close, MJ stares up lovingly at him. Spiderman stands smiling ear to ear, but again, you can't see it because he's wearing a mask. Steve Winwood quietly begins to sing Nickleback's "Hero", going note for note with Chad Kroeger. The camera begins to slowly zoom out.]
