Other than the eyes, it's as far removed from Ditko as you can get.

How come for the first movie, everyone was like "You can't have the web shooters. They're too unrealistic. Audiences won't find it believable." And practically everyone was in agreement with that.

And now they've done what supposedly couldn't be done in a movie.
I've had a nearly identical thought. I recall all the "It'll take too long to explain him making them, testing them etc". Or another favorite, "No one will believe a teen is really that smart or capable."

I think those were just excuses to accept the fact Hollywood wanted to flex it's muscle and do change for change sake. Granted they pulled it off, so well in fact Marvel altered Peter in the books themselves.

I'd argue that if you look at US students across the board broadly they could use with a "smart bookish" persona to look at and say, "Hey, radiocative bite or not being smart allowed him to do 'x' when opportunity struck."

Organic webshooters might be more "believable", but it also struck me as being kinda weird and creepy too.

Which fed into the whole outcase/socially introverted-ness of Raimi's Parker.

That first show makes me think Gwen will figure out the truth pretty quickly, now that she's seen that Peter is pretty muscled under his clothes and gets beat up a lot.

^ I would agree regarding Gwen finding out early. The shots of Emma Stone's Gwen kind of remind me of "The Spectacular Spider-Man" version of the character. The webshooters look okay as well.

Yes, I see that. Seems a weird bit of casting. I'm used to her playing overly dramatic women that go batshit crazy.

Why does this look like a virtual remake of the first movie?
