The Amazing Spider-Man: How Whiny Is Spidey This Time?
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Whininess Level: Could create new, superpowered villains upon exposure
Spidey Would Prefer to Be: In Swing Kids
Worth Noting: Nothing. This film does not exist.
The Amazing Spider-Man (opens today)
Whininess Level: Moderate
Other than one emo howl, the lithe new Spider-Man understands that with great power comes the chance to pull off badass skateboard tricks. At one point, he's so happy he skips.
Spidey Would Prefer to Be: Spidey! Good for him.
Worth Noting: For the first time, the construction workers in a Spider-Man movie do not appear to be borrowed from a dinner theater musical. Also, this series might be propagandistic advocacy for a Manhattan-wide ban on experiments with human test subjects.
