Take the original film. Add few layers of intrigue, some degrees of greyness, reduce dramatically cuteness and finally inject some great action. Voila, I present the Amazing Spiderman
It’s the same, yet its new. He is an orphan, brought up by his uncle & aunt, but there is some intrigue about what his father was doing, the circumstances of his death. He is still bitten by a spider but then comes up with certain stunts on his own. He still does fall for someone but it’s Gwen, not Mary Jane. And there is a villain, Lizard man but to a degree its his fault, in some ways, his own creation.
Zombieland. Spiderman’s girlfriend always has to play second fiddle but here she manages to infuse it with some steel, showcasing intelligence and feistiness, which make her essential to his life.
