!![[Film/{{The Amazing Spider-Man}} The 2012 Film]]
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Do the words we hear when Connors is alone in his lair mean the Lizard has taken on a mind of its own is TalkingToThemself? Or are we hearing Connors' InnerMonologue as he prepares his attack? Or is he really talking to someone else, namely the Man In The Shadows? Likewise, is the Lizard a full-on [[SplitPersonality split personality]], or is it always Connors but in [[ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil a mentally unhinged state]]?
** A fairly minor example can be found towards the thief who [[ItWasHisSled killed Uncle Ben]]. Was his decision to throw Peter his milk a small PetTheDog moment, or was he simply trying to bribe Peter into silence while he stole money from the register.
** He was most definitely not talking to the Man in the Shadows in that scene, considering he's alone and the voice is clearly Rhys Ifans' own.
* BrokenBase: Particularly among the established fans of the SamRaimi-helmed trilogy and tentative fans of this movie, by its very nature as a ContinuityReboot [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks with a new cast and director.]] Any number of details [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks have also generated complaints]] from some quarters. These include:
** Spider-Man's actor [[FakeAmerican being British]].... Although Andrew Garfield is ''British-American'', and was born in California. He just speaks with an English accent as he grew up in Surrey.
** The changes to the costume.
** The film being closer to [[ComicBook/SpiderMan the source material]] by having Spider-Man using mechanical web shooters and snarking it up in action. Similarly, the film being more close to ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'' than the traditional mythos.
** Peter being a high school student for the entire movie -- [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan though]] [[TheSpectacularSpiderMan this is]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}} hardly new.]]
** Peter being "too handsome," as he's supposed to be a bit of a social outcast and Andrew Garfield is ''gorgeous''.
*** Though it is possible (though still more rare than you'd expect) to be both an outcast and good looking.
** Peter apparently being an angsty teen-type instead a textbook HollywoodNerd. WordOfGod justifies this as trying to modernize the "outsider" aspect of Peter Parker's character, as nerds are more socially acceptable nowadays. The film shows he does have an extensive nerdy side... just not immediately apparent in school, where his public face is that of a [[LonersAreFreaks loner]].
** Peter having a skateboard.
** The DarkerAndEdgier approach.
** Other changes to[=/=]interpretations of comic lore (regardless of the reboot premise), such as [[spoiler:not having Peter as a wrestler]] (as Marc Webb revealed) and the greater emphasis upon Peter's parents.
** J. Jonah Jameson not being featured in the film, though the Daily Bugle is still in it.
** Mary Jane not being featured in the film (and Gwen Stacy being given her feisty personality)
** Conversely, [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks the movie being "too similar" to the old trilogy.]]
** The fact that Sony (through Columbia Pictures), not Marvel Studios, is producing - keeping Spider-Man from joining the MarvelCinematicUniverse.
*** Accusations have been made that the movie was only made for ''that exact reason'' - the rights were about to revert to Marvel.
** Peter knowing his scientist parents for a few years before their deaths, as opposed to them being spies and dying when he was too young to remember them. However, the film is taking its inspiration from ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'', where the former applies.
** [[ProductPlacement Peter using Bing]].
*** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2KSPiTOMR8 The MySpace of search engines!]]"
** The Lizard not having a reptilian snout, despite the fact that his appearance in the film is nigh-identical to his first appearance in the comics, sans pants and lab coat.
* DesignatedHero: This Peter Parker does a few things that one would suggest make him the least sympathetic Peter Parker ever shown. These include yelling at his Aunt May (The woman who raised him and he ended up leaving widowed), lying to get a chance to see Dr. Connors (thereby causing someone to lose his chance at internship) and [[spoiler: hints he'll break the promise he made to Gwen's father (the man who died to save Peter) and still go out with Gwen.]]
** But that last bit will [[ForegoneConclusion inevitably]] come back at him [[ILetGwenStacyDie with a vengeance]], as foreshadowed.
* DracoInLeatherPants: As the Headscratchers section shows, some fans support Dr. Connors' plan to turn all New Yorkers into lizard-people like him.
** Overlaps with RootingForTheEmpire / DesignatedVillain, since a sizeable chunk of people root for him not because of his looks, but because they think ''[[TheExtremistWasRight he was right]]''.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Cranes playing a huge part in Spidey saving the day... when one of them nearly killed Gwen in ''Spider-Man 3''.
* GeniusBonus: In addition to being a ShoutOut and some {{Foreshadowing}}, Peter's room has a poster for AlfredHitchcock's ''RearWindow'', a film about another photographer that fights (or rather solves) crime and has a beautiful girlfriend.
* HarsherInHindsight: Captain Stacy's [[spoiler:dying wish for Peter leave Gwen out of his adventures as Spider-Man is all the more pertinent considering her original fate in the main MarvelUniverse.]]
* HilariousInHindsight:
** "You found my weakness, it's small knives!" is reminiscent of "A bullet came out of his gun somehow! How did he know my one weakness?" from these [[http://jaypinkerton.com/2004/06/08/spider-man-comics/ parodies of the Spider-Man newspaper strip]] floating around the Web since 2004.
** One of the first things Peter's powers do - [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/322171-my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic squeeze out too much toothpaste.]]
** Much laughter was had when the first leaked production photos were of the car thief scene, strangely involving Spidey and said car thief in... suggestive positions. Now we know that the crotch thing was ''deliberate''.
** Remember StanLee appearing in ''Film/TheAvengers'' and scoffing the idea of superheroes despite all evidence to the contrary? [[HeadphonesEqualIsolation Now we know he has good reason...]]
* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: The main complaint of film critics who didn't like the movie that it's too similar to Raimi's ''Spider-Man''.
* ItWasHisSled:
** Those who know anything about Spider-Man know that Uncle Ben is killed.
** For fans of the comics, the same can be said about [[spoiler:George Stacy]].
* MemeticBadass: Crane-Dad and the ability of New York Crane Operators to somehow mobilise faster than the police.
* MemeticMutation:
** One of Spidey's lines against a car thief when he pulls a knife out - "You found my weakness, it's small knives!!" is slowly becoming one.
** [[spoiler:Chocolate milk]] killed Uncle Ben.
* MisaimedMarketing: For some reason Avi Arad who was an executive producer for all four films tried to say that this film doesn't erase the previous films and can fit into the Raimi timeline. Some posters even referred to this movie as "The Untold story" Anyone with so much as a functioning brain cell can see that this isn't the case and this film is indeed a reboot.
* {{Narm}}:
** The crane scene has been called the cheesiest and most laughable moment of any Spider-Man films.
*** NarmCharm: That said many people still like the crane bit.
** "Go to sleep Aunt May!"
** "Your boyfriend is a man of many masks!" Well, at least it wasn't "[[ReallyGetsAround Your boyfriend's a bit of a swinger]]..."
* OneSceneWonder: Missy Kallenback, the nerdy girl Peter protects from Flash. She literally only appears in two scenes, but it was enough to spawn her a fandom and a lot of EpilepticTrees.
* {{Squick}} Spidey accidentally pulling off Lizard's tail during the fight at the school. Then we're treated to a shot of the tail growing back...
* TearJerker:
** Uncle Ben's death, [[ItWasHisSled but you should know that already.]]
** [[spoiler:Captain George Stacy]]'s death, with him asking Peter [[spoiler:to break up with Gwen so that she's not put in danger by the enemies he'll make as Spider-Man]].
** Peter returning home after the final battle.
** Uncle Ben's voicemail.
* TrailerJokeDecay: Arguably, Spidey's quip about the small knives to the would-be carjacker, since nearly every trailer and commercial have included this bit.
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome
** The shot where Spidey is wrapping the Lizard in a great layer of webs is a tad... conspicuous, however.
* TheWoobie: Gwen (Loses her father and boyfriend), Aunt May (Loses her husband and sees her nephew go down a bad path) and Peter (Loses his parents, his uncle, and has to live with the guilt of his girlfriend's father dying to save him) all count.
** Peter might also count as a JerkassWoobie, given what he does in the film, such as [[spoiler: imply he will break his promise to Gwen's father so that he and Gwen will stay together]].
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Dr. Connors/The Lizard.
* WTHCastingAgency: Casting a 28 year old man (Andrew Garfield), to play a [[DawsonCasting highschool teenager]] falls here for some. Tobey Maguire was about the same age when he was cast and that is rarely brought up, but it doesn't exactly help Andrew's case either. However, it can be forgiven; does he ''really'' [[http://healthyceleb.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Andrew-Garfield-height-weight-2.jpg look like he's 28]]??

!![[VideoGame/{{The Amazing Spider-Man}} The Tie-In Game for the 2012 Film]]
* AuthorsSavingThrow: Don't like that Beenox altered the suit from the movie by adding a utility belt? The first time the player heads to Peter's apartment, they have the option of removing the belt from the suit, pleasing those who like both versions of the suit. Don't like either version of the suit and wish it was the one from [[Film/{{Spider-Man Trilogy}} the previous trilogy]]? That one's unlockable too.
* AwesomeMusic: The trailer [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6RRla7MjyI uses "Control" by Garbage]], and it's surprisingly impressive.
* BaseBreaker:
** The casting of SamRiegel as Spider-Man, due to Andrew Garfield being unavailable. Doesn't really help that he's received a lot of flak for being TheOtherDarrin in [[{{Persona 4}} another]] [[Persona4Arena game]].
** The change in the suit from the one in the movie, with Beenox adding a utility belt to the ensemble. Resulted in the AuthorsSavingThrow mentioned above.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** The use of the "[[JediMindTrick These aren't the droids you're looking for]]" routine, considering Spider-Man & ''Franchise/StarWars'' are both owned by Disney as of late 2012.
** The inclusion of the costume from [[Film/{{Spider-Man Trilogy}} the previous trilogy]] as an unlockable extra became this, after the first shots of Spidey's costume from ''Amazing Spider-Man 2'' revealed... that it's more or less replaced the costume from the first film.[[note]]"More or less," because the eyepieces & the [[ChestInsignia Spider insignia on the chest]] are different, and the webbing is black instead of the silver on the Raimi suit.[[/note]]
* MoralEventHorizon:
** Alistaire Smythe [[spoiler: injecting Spiderman with a nannobot cocktail. This temporarily strips him of his powers. When Spiderman was weakened, he tries to overkill him with the S-03 robot.]]
** Connors feels he crossed it with [[spoiler: Captin Stacy's murder from the movie]], but Spiderman credits it as the Lizard's fault to console Connors.
* MostAnnoyingSound: Spider-Man's quotes get quite annoying since he pretty much only has a few lines that constantly repeat, and some of them are just recycled from Beenox's [[SpiderManShatteredDimensions last two]] [[SpiderManEdgeOfTime Spider-Man games]].
* WTHCastingAgency: SamRiegel as Spider-Man instead of Andrew Garfield, after Tobey Maguire voiced Spidey in the three tie-in games based on [[Film/SpiderMan the trilogy he starred in]]. Note that some are noting that Riegel would actually make a rather good Spider-Man, if he wasn't standing in for the star of the movie. There's another camp who questioned why they didn't have fan favourite Spidey voice actor [[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan Jo]][[VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions sh]] [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Kea]][[{{Spider-Man Edge Of Time}} ton]], or even [[WesternAnimation/{{UltimateSpider-Man}} Drake]] [[WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes Bell]], reprise the role.
