Released in 2012, The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D by Marc Webb, is a reboot of the impressive Spider-Man franchise. While the original franchise had its high points, the third film was a big let down for many fans. In The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D we see Peter Parker in high school and have a look at Spider-Man’s well-known origin story (where he gets bitten by a radioactive spider, of course!) Andrew Garfield manages to give Peter Parker the geeky personality that fans were expecting and Emma Stone does a great job in the role of Gwen Stacy, a role that was very problematic in the first franchise. In fact, one thing that angered fans about the first franchise was the confusion of Gwen Stacy with Mary Jane, a move that never really worked.
The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D was first talked about after Spider-Man 4 was canceled in 2010, putting an end to the Sam Raimi take on the franchise. The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D reboots this franchise using the same production team as the first trilogy. The 3D is impressive thanks to 3Ality Technica. The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D’s score is also quite impressive thanks to James Horner’s contributions. After the June 13 world premiere, The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D has received positive reviews and, in general, is a considerable success
Here’s interview with Marc Webb, The Director of The Amazing Spider-Man and its upcoming two sequels from Sony.
One of the things that Marc Webb does right is humanizing Spider Man. In The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D, Marc Webb explores Peter Parker’s relationship with his missing father and his own search. It also uses an updated term of nerd, a term that definitely does not mean the same thing today as it meant a few years ago. However, Marc Webb now characterizes Peter Parker as an outsider, but in a contemporary context rather than in the previous stereotypical nerd with big glasses and bad skin. Using the Internet as an analogy for the superhero mask, Marc Webb gives The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D several layers of meaning that were not found in the previous franchise.

The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D is a satisfying reboot and the balance between comedy and genuine emotion is well done. Unlike other superhero movies, The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D is a success in that its characters are real people. Fans can relate to Peter Parker and Gwen Stone and they immediately feel like real, complete people rather than just cartoons. Best of all, The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D is faithful to the original series, giving fans exactly what they fell in love with in the original comics and illustrations from the 1960’s Spider-Man comic books. While some have criticized the point of rebooting a series so fast, there are many memorable moments that make The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D a blast to watch.
