The Amazing Spider-Man is a 2012 film that serves as the first film in a two-film series.
- Its portrayal of Spider-Man:
- The suit is pretty cool, with the sunglasses lenses and light-up web-shooters.
- Unlike the previous actor Tobey Macguire, Andrew Garfield looks more like the Peter Parker from the comics.
- Direct references to the Ultimate Spider-Man comic.
- The fight scenes are awesome.
- The dark, gitty tone of the film, as well as the parents subplot, really makes it seem more like a Batman movie.
- Peter seems too much of a "cool" guy, even riding a skateboard.
