Sony should have done a better job negotiating with the actors so the Spiderman budgets wouldn't get so huge. Still you can't blame Tobey for trying to make as much money as possible.
I don't blame him for wanting as much pay as he can get. I do blame Raimi for not standing up to the studio and the actors. After all, the musical numbers, and I am willing to bet much of the dancing was their ideas. They should have made it clear that they aren't the stars of these films - Spider-Man is the star, and they can be replaced.
Still doesn't explain how the budget ASM stil ended up being so big at 230 million even with an entirely new cast for the reboot. ASM cost more to make than The Avengers!
No kidding! Just watching the trailer, the movie looks cheap!
