Any parent with a child up to the age of eighteen seems to be aware of how popular Spiderman has become. Recently beginning as a popular Halloween costume, Spiderman had a nice little niche. After the first remake of the movie, however, things seemed to explode. Great actors and actresses seem to make all of the difference in the popularity of a subject. Our society seems to revolve around the Hollywood world. Now, rather than the average costume, book bags, pencils, clothing, folders, figurines and more are all too familiar of an item at recess. There seems to be no end to what this familiar figure has been applied. Ever since the remake of the ever-popular movie, kids have been constantly tugging at the pants leg for the newest figurine or latest comic style clothing.
It is nice to see such a remarkable character from the past reappear in today’s society. It brings back the comic book feel to the older generation, giving us a chance to reminisce. Spiderman Who would have thought that a generation filled with so many different gizmos and gadgets would turn to Spiderman as entertainment. The merchandising world has a keen eye and has this fire burning at full throttle. Not only has there been a remake of the original movie to inspire the toy making industry but also a sequel, Spiderman2 and on May 2007 there is apparently a Spiderman 3 coming to the theaters. This will most certainly inflate the already enormous market and perhaps the value of the dusty old school Spiderman collection in the closet.
Predicting the same success of the upcoming movie of Spiderman 3, an adult can only hope to have retained their oldest collection of figurines. With the way the kids seem to go crazed of the old comic figure, it is bound to be successful both in the entertainment industry and the investor’s pocketbook.
