well to be fair I did say the same thing when they first mentioned the Spiderman Reboot.

I mean it looks good but they didn't need to reboot the franchise IMO. They could have went off in a new direction.

The Mummy's Hand (1940) was a lose remake of The Mummy and yet took the franchise in a different direction (well actually it CREATED the franchise, as up to then the 32 film was a stand-alone).

It'd be neat if they did something similar with this "reboot".

With respect to the leaked plot description, Ashurbanipal was one of the Neo-Assyrian rulers who controlled Egypt between 911 BC and 605 BC. His death in 627 is seen as the precipitating force in the fall of the empire.

Egypt was being ruled by the 26th Dynasty, the Saite Kings who operated as vassals of Assyria. If the synopsis is true, I wonder if the idea will be that Ashurbanipal was killed by dark magic (perhaps someone colluding with Sin-shumu-lishir who seized the throne from Ashurbanipal's son, Ashur-etil-ilani) with an Egyptian origin (an Egyptian curse)?
