    I dunno. There are lots of resourceful kids these days doing all kinds of things (good and bad most likely)...it's not really that much of a stretch to think that Peter would be able to come up with his own adhesive formula but then again maybe this is why they came up with the organic webshooters in the Rami film because they couldn't justify a broke teenager having the resources to do that.

    Didn't James Cameron's treatment also have organic webshooters?

    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.

    Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

    Spider-man also screwed Mary Jane on top of a building too.

    Even though the script was terrible i'm sure a James Cameron Spider-man movie would have been amazing. The effects would have been out of this world.

    I think that was the idea. It made a bit more "sense" to do it that way and, to me, that makes sense too.

    It was the Brooklyn Bridge, and it was every bit as bizarre as it sounds:

    Yeah I'm glad Cameron never made his movie. I hated the script after reading it a couple years ago.

    that's the Ultimate origin. his dad was working on the formula as well as other stuff and Peter manages to finish it and creates web-fluid.

    Not much of a stretch to think that he could come up with something which has eluded all of the techological, scientific and money-laden companies and innovators in the world?

    Except that they haven't yet that we know of and this is a comic book not reality and stuff like this is supposed to suspend our belief of certain things. What I was really getting at was that it isn't much of a stretch concerning what we know of Peter's own intelligence level. Granted...the lack of resources that he has at his disposal would indeed raise prudent questions about this.

    I seem to recall the 616 Spidey saying that he was able to create the web fluid because some aspect of having spider powers gave him an instinct-type knowledge on what sort of enzymes he'd have to mix together in order to make it.

    I had to stop at that Cameron script when the movment of his hands was desciube as "Dance". Aweful. Though, on a plus side, it reminds me of that nifty dancing Spider-man gif.

    Here's a short update from Andrew Garfield, in which he confirms that Peter will still be a teen in the movie:

    Hmm... I'm not sure I can buy Garfield as anything younger than 20. Let's hope "teenager" in this case means 18 or 19.
