Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I seem to recall a version where Peter didn't come up with the webfluid himself, but perfected a formula for an adhesive initially devised by his scientist father. That's my preferred version; it shows Peter is intelligent and scientifically-minded, without asking us to believe that the kid bit by a radioactive (or whatever) spider also coincidentally happens to be a teenage chemical prodigy making breakthroughs in his bedroom.
