Uh, Monsoon, I grew up with old school Spider-Man. We're talking physicist Spider-Man. That's what I grew up with, and I'm frankly tired of all of the reinventions designed to get new readers interested in a character. It's fine if that's your first exposure to it, but the current incarnation of the character has little if anything to do with what I grew up with.
Also, let's be very clear here; the only reason we have the new Amazing Spider-Man films is because Sony only holds the rights so long as they continue to make a new movie every two to three years, otherwise they revert back to Marvel and, thus, Disney. Movie Bob said it best when he referred to it as movie making by accountants. It's the worst way to go about the creative process.
And, while we're arguing about "getting Spider-Man," wasn't the entire point of Peter Parker that he's an everyday guy who just so happens to get super powers? Now we have to give him a "chosen one" storyline based around awful cliches and terrible writing to somehow make it all mean something for him to now be hero? Like, his parents planned it for some odd reason? The purpose of Spider-Man is that he's a kid who got great power, ya know, so he can be responsible with it. The fact that the new movies fly in the face of all of this is a testament to the current writers not getting the character. I don't care if the new incarnation in the comic books goes along with this same awful story, as I gave up on Spider-Man when they told me the real Peter Parker died in the 70's and he then made a deal with the devil (TM). Sorry, Spidey's been pretty terrible for the last twenty-or-so years.
