Tobey. You can't beat that level of awkwardness. A freakin geek machine.
I actually felt sorry for him as he got beat up in his films. He had ZERO ego as was shown in his weird facial expressions and dance attempts. I believed he was a loser with superpowers and massive guilt issues.

Garfield on the other hand, I would of prefered it if the Lizard tore him to shreds.
this film wasn't neccesarily a bad idea, it was just too soon. The only reason it existed was because Sony had to keep the franchise through making more films.
And although they ranted about how this film was "for the fans" it's dark and edgy presentation lost that quirky, bright and zanyness people liked about Spidey in the first place.

^ It seems like your dislike of the new film is making you bias.

Garfield was sooooo much better as Parker. Tobey's just not a good actor. The guy can hardly speak. That's why he's had no success since Spiderman 3 which was 5 years ago now.

Garfield on the other hand clearly has a great career ahead of him.

It'd have to last at least as long as the extended Return of the King... and even then it wouldn't be enough to do them all justice.

I agree in terms of Spider-Man but really thing Garfield was a creepy, twitchy douchebag rather than a loveable dork like Maguire. As for All the characters that have been Avengers... Would that include the lame Monica Rambeau Captain Marvel and D-Man?

I liked Tobys parker though his spiderman was lacking the actual spiderman feel. That could have just been bad writing though.

Well, he's more recognizable because he's been Spider-man for over 10 years, that doesnt mean he's better at it. I do believe Garfield fits better for the role. Especially as Spider-man. Better built for the part, nerdy, awkward, looks like Pete, good actor and has one thing Tobey's SM lacks. Right voice. Sure we cant know how Spider-man sounds from comics but we do know that he talks. A lot. And Maguire simply doesn't sound like someone who can make jokes or run his mouth during a fight or do it and make it sound natural at the same time. His voice is kind of annoying. Not "shut your mouth already!" kind of annoying (which wouldve been a good thing) but The "scraping chalkboard with your fingernails" kind of annoying. That kind of ruins his SM.

Garfield/Stone scenes were annoying as hell. They could have done those so much better.

* arguable, friend... Tobey's fit for Peter/Spidey too... he's also nerdy, awkward, he also looks like Peter and a good actor as well...

* i agree on this part though... i'm not annoyed by his voice though, it's just that he does not a lot, unlike Spidey in comics especially when fighting with the villains...

No Tobey's acting was terrible. Parker/Spiderman is a wisecracking cocky SOB. Tobey could hardly talk properly let alone pull that off.

Garfield on the other hand pulled it off brilliantly.

Well no because they could have easily made it a Spidey 4, and begged Maguire to stay if he was that good. But the fact is, he was very replaceable.

Oh please. That was such a well done romance story. In comparison the Maguire/Dunst romance was just not believable at all!

It wasn't a romance, it was a catastrophe.

Didn't like it either tbh. The secret Id revelation could've been done much better.

It was much more believable and enjoyable than the Maguire/Dunst rubbish.

Not really. It made that one look great, tbh. That just shows how bad it was.

Chemistry between Garfield and Stone was amazing. That was one of the things most reviews pointed out. Just because you didn't like it, doesn't make it bad. General opinion is that it was pulled off very well.
