Re: The Amazing Spider-Man Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)
One reason why there might be tensions between Webb and the studio is that the film seems to have been reworked significantly shortly before release:
I noticed some of these things as well as I was watching the film, but they didn't detract from my enjoyment of it too much.
Wow, that was an interesting read. Unfortunately, this doesn't surprise me because I noticed some of those things missing, particularly Peter losing his drive to find Uncle Ben's killer and the mystery behind his parents' death and/or absence, as well as the lack of the Connors' family despite being cast. I am disappointed, however, that the studio (or whoever) decided to do this last minute edit of the film and I agree with the author of the article that it negatively impacts the film (although I would still have some of the issues I talked about in my review).
hope it doesn't turn out to be Richard Parker because that's a major deviation from the comics but at the same time it wouldn't surprise me.
