The Copy And Paste Mentality In Nollywood

I stumbled on the “Spider Girl” trailer few days ago..Oh no, is this what Nollywood has turned to? From “Don jazzy”, to “Tear My Pant” to “Batman”. And now, it’s “Spider Girl”. I am sure “Batman vs Superman” is also in the making. We really need to stop this copy and paste mentality and start doing something original and unique to our culture. Thank God we have few filmmakers out there that are making us proud.

“Comic fans around the world are waiting with bated breathe to see what Tom Holland’s performance as Spider-Man is going to be like – but the poor guy may have been outshone before he’s even webbed up his first bad guy.
Meet Spider-Girl a gender bent, copyright infringing adaptation of everyone’s favourite wall-crawler straight from Nigeria’s version of Hollywood, Nollywood.
As I’m sure you can tell from the trailer Spider-Girl is more than capable of going up against Marvel’s heavy hitters, swinging (or flying it’s hard to tell) through the jungle and battling criminals with her magical ability to produce cartoon string, or webs, again it’s hard to tell.
Okay let’s be honest the CGI’s not the best and the story looks … a bit incoherent. I think it’s about Spider-Girl stopping criminals but I couldn’t tell you what their crimes are. Either way I’m sure the villains in that car that she mercilessly threw into the jungle deserved their fiery death..
Anyway judging by the last trailer for Civil War Captain America’s team doesn’t have their own Spider-Person so who knows maybe Spider-Girl could travel over the Atlantic and battle Tom Holland’s, slightly more polished looking, Spider-Man.

Eh…who are you?
I am the spider girl, i am here to save you.

Nollywood won’t stop to amuse me.
