The Characters



SPIDER-MAN

Comics: Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider in high school, and the spider bite caused him to develop abilities powers similar to that of a spider. He was soon able to crawl up walls and sense imminent danger, and eventually even developed his own method of creating webs to swing from.

Initially, Peter's problems as Spider-Man made him ignore her advances, and in return, she felt insulted by his aloofness. Gradually, however, a romance developed.

However, the reptilian DNA his serum was based on mixed with, and altered, his own DNA, and turned him into a vicious creature known as The Lizard.

Created by Stan Lee, John Romita Sr. First appearance: Amazing Spider-Man #56 (January, 1968)

Live Adaptation: An esteemed police officer for over twenty years, Captain Stacy was the public face of the NYPD who leads the department's investigation into Spider-Man's vigilantism.

Live Adaptation: When Richard Parker vanished mysteriously, Ben and his wife May agreed to look after Peter. He was told by Peter that he was "a great dad," even though he sometimes doubts his parenting skills.

Portrayed by: Martin Sheen


AUNT MAY

Portrayed by: Embeth Davidtz


FLASH THOMPSON

Comics: Flash Thompson was a former classmate of Peter Parker at Midtown High School. Friction between the two was a common occurrence. Ironically, Flash became an ardent supporter of Spider-Man, despite popular opinion against him. He later on became a soldier, and during the Iraq War lost his legs. He would then volunteer for operation rebirth 2, which finds himself bonded with a government tampered Venom Symbiote.

Live Adaptation: Flash is the most popular athlete in school and enjoys bullying nerds like Peter Parker. He's quite strong and enjoys fighting, but he's a coward too, vengeful and angry. However, upon hearing the death of Peter's uncle, he begins to show sympathy towards Parker. By the end of the film, there is some sign that he is beginning to become somewhat friendly with Parker while at the same time, he has become one of the many of Spider-Man's loyalists.
Portrayed by: Chris Zylka



Gadgets & Vehicles



WEB-SHOOTERS

Comics: The Web-Shooters were first seen in Amazing Fantasy vol 1 #15. After being bitten by a radioactive Spider, Peter Parker decided that a Spider-Man was nothing without a web, and so invented the web-shooters.

Live Adaptation: While developing his "Spider-Man" vigilante persona, Peter Parker develops these wrist-mounted Web Shooters as a means of travel and capture. Their concept is based on a material developed and produced by Oscorp, an extremely strong material that can be compressed and stored in tiny cartridges. Though Oscorp did not yet find a use for the substance, Parker ordered a large quantity of it use as his webs.

Pretty cool.

Me: Wow peter parker is just a normal everyday kid who got spider powers and his parents died when he was young?, maybe people can relate to that makes him feel more real.

Marvel: Yea! and his parents were super spies who died fighting the red skull! So he's always been tied into the rest of the marvel universe as well ain't that cool?!

Me: Nevermind -_-

i think i prefer the "natural" Spiderman i.e webshooters in the wrists. It's more believable, in my opinion.
jingorot - 10/30/2012, 5:48 AM
i like that they didn't get some grandma to play aunt may. i find it kinda hard to believe that a teenager's aunt (i.e. same generation as parents) could be old enough to look 70-80. the 50 or so year old look is much better, and less... creepy.
EdgyOutsider - 10/30/2012, 5:51 AM
Spider-Man as always been my favorite superhero due to the fact I've been able to relate to Peter Paker on almost every level. In my opinion, he is the most relatable superhero, especially The Amazing Spider-Man film version. I been able to relate to Peter in every sense except for being a science nerd, spy parents and of course, Spider-Man. For me, he has always had the best comicbook stories and that's why I have gravitated to him. Although, I was introduced to him when I was 7 when my dad took me to see the 2002 Spider-Man film.

Spider-Man = Best superhero ever
The Amazing Spider-Man = Best Spider-Man film yet
The Lizard = Best comicbook villain ever

But, this is all opinion and I think of course that in my eyes, my opinion rocks. I respect it if you don't agree. I prefer also, the webshooters compared to the organic webbing due to dramatic reasons and it's comes off more natural and better. Although, I won't bash on the original movies because those three are some of my favorite comicbook movies.
LegacyFilms - 10/30/2012, 6:26 AM
I sorta thought the same thing, but it always bothered me that, inexplicably, the only way to fire the organic webbing was to bend the two middle fingers back.
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 6:47 AM
As much as it pains me to admit that 1 of my favorite heroes had a sh!tty film, this movie was horribly, painfully, embarrassingly, disappointingly, terrible.

You know you suck, when CW makes a show about a superhero with no powers, and its WAY better than this f#ckry film. Sure, they made their money back, but that doesn't make this a good movie, SUPERMAN RETURNS made their money back. It just means a lot of people love Spider-Man and want the best. I truly hope the next 1 blows me away
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 6:49 AM
When I watch disappointing movies, that I actually looked forward to seeing, I begin to realize that either, I take this too seriously, or, the guys making these films aren't taking it seriously enough.
xinstituto - 10/30/2012, 7:22 AM
This movie hits the record of being the worst Spider man movie ever =/
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 7:28 AM
I still can't believe Spider-Man needed help to swing... That's like helping Aquaman swim. So f#cking stupid.

I can't believe Peter ran away from normal crooks like a Gay-Guy running from a Gay-Bashing.

I can't believe his Spider-Sense only worked when he was unconscious.

I never realized how annoying Emma Stone was until her rant about Hot Chocolate
xinstituto - 10/30/2012, 7:40 AM
I cant believe Spider man had to fight the vilain at the brookling bridge and to cacht a falling car w/ a child inside, just like the other movie (it was a bus full of children =/
I cant believe Lizard talks to himself just like Green Goblin
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 7:52 AM
I still can't believe Spider-Man forgot he had powers in the end of the film, and needed Dr. Connors to pull him up from the side of the building.

I can't believe Spider-Man only saved 1 kid on that bridge, and left everyone else literally hanging, sh!tting their pants. There is no way the Cops got there in time to save ALL those people before the webbing dissolved.

But whats even more unbelievable, a MAJOR character flaw:

After Peter researches online, and is the ONLY 1 to find out that his parents died in a plane crash, It is only then that he yells at his aging Aunt and Uncle "Why aren't they here? Where are they?"

Hey A$$hole! You just read online they DIED IN A PLANE CRASH! The proper thing to do would be to tell your aging relatives what you found out, so they can stop wondering if they will ever return. Some f#ckin genius...
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 7:55 AM
xinstituto

I cant believe Lizard talks to himself just like both Green Goblins, Doc Ock, Venom...
tripttwe - 10/30/2012, 8:32 AM
I can't believe you two are completely knocking this film with such valid points! See what I did there?
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 8:49 AM
I can't believe Peter Parker was doing Spider-Training to a Coldplay song. I like Coldplay, but seriously, thats GAY!

Whats even funnier is, if they had cut more from the film, it would have been even better. Like cutting out the incorrect origin, and incorrectly killing Uncle Ben, and that babblebit on Hot Chocolate, not cute at all.
cwarrior - 10/30/2012, 9:46 AM
I was just wondering why are the same people that hate on a movie just continuously bashing it? Do you guys have anything better to do because every spidey article dealing with the movie here you all come and all I can say is pathetic.

I loved this movie and all I can say is if you actually paid attention you might have got something out of it but you constantly look for something to insult because you monkey brain can't process and god forbid anyone to like the movie so you can bash the person (i'm talking to you green)so I guess CBM is mainly made up of perverts and trolls and whiners this is the reason why i mainly hate coming here but hey that's all rectified now cause im done with this place.
Jollem - 10/30/2012, 9:54 AM
nice article


"I can't believe Peter ran away from normal crooks like a Gay-Guy running from a Gay-Bashing."

maybe he didn't want to beat a group of people unconscious. just because you easily can doesn't mean you should. it was not imperative

"I can't believe his Spider-Sense only worked when he was unconscious."

it didn't. remember catching the football? on the subway when he was awake? probably more

"I never realized how annoying Emma Stone was until her rant about Hot Chocolate"

i found that cute :)

"I cant believe Spider man had to fight the vilain at the brookling bridge and to cacht a falling car w/ a child inside, just like the other movie"

the two scenes were pretty different

"I cant believe Lizard talks to himself just like Green Goblin"

the lizard wasn't talking to himself. those were thoughts in connors' head as well as him speaking out loud

"I still can't believe Spider-Man forgot he had powers in the end of the film, and needed Dr. Connors to pull him up from the side of the building."

i think if connors let go, peter would have fallen to the street and became a spider-pizza

"There is no way the Cops got there in time to save ALL those people before the webbing dissolved."

how do you know the cops wouldn't get there? and when did you see something about where it said the rate of time until the webbing dissolves?

"After Peter researches online, and is the ONLY 1 to find out that his parents died in a plane crash, It is only then that he yells at his aging Aunt and Uncle "Why aren't they here? Where are they?"

Hey A$$hole! You just read online they DIED IN A PLANE CRASH! The proper thing to do would be to tell your aging relatives what you found out, so they can stop wondering if they will ever return. Some f#ckin genius..."

i'm pretty sure when peter yelled at ben he was saying; "why did he leave me in the first place?"

"I cant believe Lizard talks to himself just like both Green Goblins, Doc Ock, Venom..."

coonors did not. otto talked to his tentacles. venom talked with himself?

"I can't believe Peter Parker was doing Spider-Training to a Coldplay song. I like Coldplay, but seriously, thats GAY!"

i thought the song worked great with the whole sequence leading up to peter exploring what he is capable of. with so much shit that happened to him, then he finally gets a break. sets up a date with his crush and finally has some time to relax and everything not be all crazy


here are some examples why it's not "the same movie" as spider-man 1

-no harry osborn, no mary jane. enter, gwen stacy and george stacy and family
-started in high school, stayed in high school
-no college, no daily bugle job, no j.j., no apartment
-flash was not a one-dimensional bully
-the storyline involving peter's parents
-oscorp and norman osborn's condition and the shady going-ons
-cross-species genetics
-the main villain wanted to "cure"/transform a good number of new york's citizens
-uncle ben's death and the mugger and the spider bite were very different
-seeing cops actually go after the vigilante spider-man like they mean it
-exploring the powers went different
-more wise-cracking spidey
-no organic web shooters
-a villain didn't die
-no, connor's didn't have a split personality he was talking with
-those were thoughts in his head
-it did show peter making the suit
-using his webs more in a fight
-apparently, people at the evil oscorp are aware that peter is spider-man

i like that they didn't skimp on the origin because there is a whole new story going on

i think tasm has a lot more heart than most cbms. good story. good action. good actors. good directing
Jollem - 10/30/2012, 9:59 AM
@pharoah0552 - sometimes you ARE able to get good comic talk or cbm talk going on. it might be rare, but it can happen. it's not just all ego-feeding and incessantly bashing
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 9:59 AM
pharoah0552

Well I think I already said it, but I know I speak for myself when I say I wanted to like this movie. While everyone was dissing Andrew Garfield and everyone else I was still very anxious for this movie in a good way. But I felt seriously let down, so when I see these AMAZING SPIDER-MAN things pop up on main, I can't help but see what people think, and interact. There are other times I am defending a movie people love to bash, like STAR WARS prequels, or that new CONAN. But when something is obviously flawed, I'm gonna say it, even if I like the movie.

For me I think the problem is... I love Spider-Man, but I hate how under-done and heartless this movie turned out. If I didn't like Spider-Man, I wouldn't care, I'd probably not even check Spider-Man things on the main page.

You shoulda seen me when SUPERMAN RETURNS came out. Totally devastated
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 10:24 AM

So Spider-Sense is effective when catching flies but not to let you know the ground isn't safe to walk on, leading into a HUGE fall... I'm not trying to be a hater, but some things still didn't add up.

And whether Pete's dad planned on coming back or not, nobody plans a plane crash. It was obviously an emergency in the 1st place. Uncle Ben didn't seem to know about the plane crash. I would've understood that scene better if it took place before Pete read about it online.

Even if webbing didn't have a short decay rate, he is going to let cops and firemen take hours, every minute in fear for the surviving passengers hanging in their vehicles, to do what he could in minutes EASILY. The traffic on the bridge from all the damage done... Am I really going into this...

I hear what you are saying about Coldplay, maybe "gay" was too strong. Weak would be a better word.

your words "i think if connors let go, peter would have fallen to the street and became a spider-pizza"

Now dude, I am being respectful here when I say: Do you, or the dudes making this movie know anything about Spider-Man? Do you think that Spider-Man sliding down the side of a building, without web-shooters, turning into a street-pizza without help sound like a good SPIDER-MOVIE?

And HE NEEDED HELP TO SWING! THAT'S LIKE HELPING FLASH RUN OR AQUAMAN SWIM!

You're just graspin' at straws here man; it's not a big deal. Sorry you didn't allow yourself to enjoy the film.
Jollem - 10/30/2012, 10:43 AM
@KNIGHT3000 - i never really said you were a hater, i just like good debate with topics that interest me :)

"but not to let you know the ground isn't safe to walk on, leading into a HUGE fall"

i'm having a brain-fart here, what part is this?

when peter yelled at ben i don't think it had anything to do really with "why" his dad/mom died. i think peter was more just pissed about being abandoned in the first place

hey, let the cops and firemen and whatnot earn a paycheck. that's their job too, for they are also heroes :) maybe spidey had to go lick his wounds

i would take that song over limp bizkit's "nookie" any day :)

i'd like to think i'm something of a spider-fan. he's probably the character i've drawn the most since i was four. in over a quarter century, i've drawn spidey enough times so he could populate a small planet

i didn't say and don't think that would've been good to have spidey splat. i was just trying to reason why connors assisted peter a little bit

what does you mean he needed help to swing?
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 10:43 AM
MarsivNayr

Straws? Ok... For me it kinda was a big deal because i am a life long Spider-Fan. For you it wasn't a big deal because it probably exceeded your expectations.

Jollem did mention cool things about the movie, but yea, those things I mentioned, to me were kinda mistakes you shouldn't make with a Spider-Movie. C'mon, he needed help to swing...
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 10:55 AM
Jollem

The part when he fell through the roof into the Wrestling Ring. What spider-sense?

They lined up a bunch of Cranes so he could swing across town fast. It was as if, on his own... WAIT! He couldn't gain momentum on his own? They had cops blocking the streets so he could "swing through", forgive me for ruining the "New York minute" but thats really sad. It was like "where's the Coldplay?"
Pending - 10/30/2012, 11:03 AM
@knight

not just the small things either throughout the movie he never grew as a character 2 people died throughout the film because of him one died because because he was being inconsiderate to his aunt and uncle and one made the ultimate sacrifice to save him and the rest of the city yet peter parker can't make the small sacrifice of keeping a promise HE MADE! to stay away from gwen, 2 people die because of his actions yet he still doesn't learn the meaning of responsibility.
Jollem - 10/30/2012, 11:07 AM
@KNIGHT3000 - ah,ah...right

i believe the spider-sense works when there is danger coming at him directly. i may be wrong, but i refuse to wiki because then i wouldn't feel good about myself :)

i'll have to watch it again, but i wanna say where peter was in position from where he had to go, he would not have been able to easily swing from the buildings effectively. i think he could have done it, but the cranes sure helped

"forgive me for ruining the "new york minute" but thats really sad. It was like "where's the Coldplay?"

lol
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 11:28 AM

Cause its the best kind...Totally yo! He was selfish the entire time. Even at the dinner table with Captain Stacy, Even if you aren't Spider-Man where was the manners?

Jollem

Trust me man, if you wikied this stuff, you would be upset. All the stuff I been reading on Spider-Man for the last 25-30 years, makes this look like a spit in the f#ckin face
Jollem - 10/30/2012, 11:55 AM
@KNIGHT3000 -

"He was selfish the entire time. Even at the dinner table with Captain Stacy, Even if you aren't Spider-Man where was the manners?"

dude's 17 years old. and i know people that are around 30 years old that are way worse

i dunno, i've been reading spider-man for that same time frame and i really liked the movie
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 12:34 PM
Jollem

I know what you mean about being 17, I think he was 15, and yes there are worse adults, but everyone knows you respect your girlfriend's father, ESPECIALLY at 17. Not like adults who don't care to respect others cause they are already grown. Its a part of the youth process to respect elders.

Another moment Pete is totally inconsiderate is when he comes home and Aunt May is waiting up for him. She is clearly worried, not only because Peter keeps coming home with bruises during all hours of the night, but because HER HUSBAND WAS GUNNED DOWN IN PUBLIC THAT SAME WEEK AND PETER SAW IT HAPPEN! He erupts into a huge argument insinuating that her worry is wasted and uncalled for.

Its like, Yo A$$hole(Peter) your aunt is grieving more than you, she lost her LIFE PARTNER and she is old. Have some respect and shut the f#ck up! Its that same p#ssy-a$$ attitude that caused Uncle Ben to go chasing after you that night that got him killed. After you were whining over your DEAD parents as if they were alive...
Jollem - 10/30/2012, 1:14 PM
@KNIGHT3000 - he's 15? why'd i always think he was 17? lol

it seems fitting a bit more now :)
KNIGHT3000 - 10/30/2012, 1:17 PM
Jollem

In the real story he gets his power at 15, so I just assumed they didn't mess that up too. He does look older than that though. And like you said, it could answer for his immaturity
SpideyMan123 - 10/30/2012, 1:44 PM
Oh Man Oh Man

Directors and writers can't make anything dramatic.... All because of these nagging fanboys

birdfists - 10/30/2012, 1:48 PM
This article was only telling about the 616 version of the characters.. When there's more of an Ultimate universe influence, such as Dr. Connors and Peter's dad working at Oscorp, George Stacy being against Spider-Man.

"She was Peter Parker's first true love."

Ummm ever hear of Betty Brant?

breakUbatman - 10/30/2012, 2:03 PM
@Knight3000

Yeah Spidey sense failed hard - it's seems the less relevant the threat the greater it worked.

What Webb should have done was have him get the tingle but not know what it is, you know let him adjust to it therefore allowing him to get caught off guard.

As for Connors saving Peter it was dumb the first time I watched it, I was told Peter was fainting or something, watched the movie again and its still dumb and he's very awake.

I also wondered why he needed the cranes, you'd think he was shot in the Web shooters or something.

Apparantley the Aunt May go to bed scene is because he's still trying to find himself and thinks that grown ups are just in the way - true story.

I managed to watch the "Rite of Passage" featurette and the movie they talk about sounds amazing but what they actually made...

-Connors would have been so much better if he was driven to use the serum out of his own desperation.
- There should have been greater emphasis on the parallels between Peter and Curt.
-It also didn't help that the Lizard swagger jacked Magneto's master plan from X-Men.

"I… I'm sorry I kept you guys up. I'm insensitive, I'm irresponsible, and I'm hungry"

Only thing that changes by the end of the movie is that he isn't hungry.

It had good casting and acting but if your story has no hook then it's pointless really.
