Although I have always loved the character of Spider-Man and his portrayals in most media, I found this rebooted film version to contain a less interesting and compelling, and ultimately unfaithful, portrayal of the central character, for reasons which I shall explain below. So if you’re up for some logical debate, dissenting opinions, and overall nerdy discussion about movies, comics, and literature, then read on as I explain why The Amazing Spider-Man was not only significantly different, but also objectively worse as a story, than most previous versions of the character. You have been warned. First of all, allow me to qualify my argument by making it not just a huge, angry rant about all of the movie’s bad points. I did my best to watch it with an open mind and tried to give it a fair chance as a film, and I will still try to do so in this note. Although I was skeptical about the reboot long before seeing it since I’m usually against reboots in principle, especially when they unnecessarily restart a good story , I grew more cautiously optimistic as it got closer to the release date and I heard positive reviews from many sources. I even told others who were more skeptical than I was that I would be willing to give it a chance despite my doubts. I still saw it within the first week it came out and paid for two full-price 3-D tickets as I went with a friend whose birthday was the next day , voluntarily staking time and money on the hope that the film would be worth watching. And there were indeed aspects of it that were worth watching. I’ll try not to belabor the point of accuracy to the comics, since that doesn’t necessarily make or break a good film, but I did appreciate some smaller details of the movie, such as the use of webshooters as opposed to organic webbing, and the correct order of Peter’s love interests, with Peter dating Gwen Stacy before Mary Jane even comes into the picture.

Homecoming will feature many notable members from the eponymous hero’s supporting cast, it looks like at least one familiar face may be sitting out this round. Despite a report several months ago saying that Zendaya is actually playing Mary Jane Watson rather than someone named “Michelle,” the actresses recently implied that she’s not playing the Marvel redhead or a love interest in the movie. While it remains to be seen if Mary Jane will pop up in Spider-Man: Homecoming at all, a new rumor is out saying that Liz Allan will actually fill the role of Peter Parker’s love interest.

While this information has yet to be officially confirmed, we definitely will see Peter interacting with Liz as one of his high school classmates, who also include Flash Thompson, Ned Leeds and Michelle. In Peter Parker ‘s earlier comic book adventures, he had a thing for Liz, but she didn’t give him the time of day because she was Flash Thompson’s girlfriend and saw Peter as a loser because of his nerdiness.

As the first Spider-Man story begins, Peter is a teenage boy, living in Queens with his elderly aunt and uncle.

Again and again, Spider-Man finds himself fighting men who represent one model or another of bad fatherhood. The Tinkerer, Electro, Dr. Octopus and the Lizard are all scientists, like Peter, but instead of mentoring him, they turn on him.

Peter giving Gwen the ring in the last chapter wasn’t meant to be a literal proposal. Him asking her if he should get down on one knee was a joke and an actual relationship is still difficult until they get Octavius and finish up that part of his quest log.

The original creative team is leaving, but hopefully the story of Spider-Gwen continues on. I’d be pretty bummed if it got canned like Silk did. Issue Anyway, I’m looking over my plans again and something is set: Spider-Island is definitely going to be my last arc. Not only are the stakes the highest world level domination but it also involves the most characters, the villain is probably one of the strongest ones excepting Murdock , the Spider theme fits both protagonists, and it’s generally a good note to end on.

So yeah, if you see Spider-Island you’ll know we’re at the homestretch Besides that Volume 2 allows me to add some more zany moments, like Noir working with Howard sadly can’t happen due to this volume’s current tone and changing the status quo around with things like the 50 states initiative, the peak of the hero craze etc etc.
