Clip from Amazing Spider-Man.
You see, this is what I’m talking about: a Spider-Man that actually makes jokes. I liked the Raimi films, but I always thought they were severely lacking in the department of what makes Peter Parker/Spider-Man a character—the banter. This is a kid who in a euphoric sense realizes how insane he is and is having a glorious time with it, so in a coping mechanism he can’t stop running his mouth. It’s what makes the character so likable, because that’s exactly what I do in a ridiculous and nerve-wracking situation—I can’t stop yapping. That’s why I think this movie will actually be a better character movie than the predecessors and will surprise a lot of people.
