Since you put this in the "I wanna see that" thread I am guessing that you are holding out hope that it will be legendarily bad in the ironically awesome way?

The problem is that it will probably take itself a little too seriously, and since it's the 2010's the effects won't be cheesy.

Had grimdark He-Man been made in the 80's or even early 90's it could have been awesome.

I love how every shitty action movie now has to have an attractive Chinese person (or many) who take part in saving the day. The macho American (for these purposes, Statham is American) can still play the lead, but there are market forces at play that force a very specific kind of diversity in films which might flop in the US.

I'm generally in favor of attractive people in action movies.

Agreed. Some low-framerate bits, but the designs and use of color are fantastic.

The writing shows some charm, too.

I'm not motivated enough to find a video, but I recall there was an EPIC FAIL Broadway musical Spiderman.

People died making it. For real. It had a body count.

It's alternate dimension stuff. Like Flash and Supergirl crossing over. They're all from different realities.

It's riffing off two Spider-Man crossover events, from what I've read. The first is where regular-continuity Peter Parker takes a jaunt over into the setting of the Ultimate Marvel comics and meets Miles Morales, the second Spider-Man there. They hang out and fight crime. The other was a big Event where a villain was trying to kill all the Spider-Men of every reality for Reasons, so every single version of Spider-Man in every medium, up to and including the newspaper comics and the Hostess Snacks ads, either teams up or gets killed by the bad guy.

This story seems a bit smaller scope.

Aww, doesn't look like my cup of tea -- nothing in the trailer made me laugh -- which is too bad because the human cast looks fantastic.
