Next Wednesday sees the release of Superior Spider-Man #1, Marvel Comics’ new series in which Peter Parker has been replaced by… someone else (I’ll save the spoilers for under the jump, in the unlikely instance that you haven’t read the story or seen the news somewhere else). Thing is, that’s clearly not the version of Spider-Man that’ll appear in the next Amazing Spider-Man movie or Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon. But does it matter?
It’s weird the way that the movie year breaks down differently from the real world. Instead of Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer, we’ve got the Holiday Season, the Awards Season, the Season Where Movies Are Dumped, and Summer. Or, as I’ve started to refer to it, the Transmedia Season… which may be part of the problem.
