I'm not blown away, but then again after Maguire's costume got so much right, they had to go in a different direction in order to separate themselves from Maguire's costume, and for all the changes they've made, it doesn't look that bad.
Yeah I'm really surprised they changed as much as they did. I figured Sony would want to make as few changes as possible, and not risk hurting a good thing they had going with the Spidey movies.
If nothing else, this gives me a bit more confidence in the movie-- that they're actually trying to make something good
here, and aren't simply trying to squeeze more money out of the franchise.
