I also felt Sandman being Ben's killer was a disservice to what had come before. The way Sam connected Peter and Sandman had too many hoops to jump through. However, I would have been cool with Flint Marko being the leader of the street gang Ben's killer belonged to. How would a subplot about Ben's past, and maybe some dealings he had with the gang that cause Peter to doubt his uncle (like how Harry found out Dumbledore was pals with Grindelwald and pursued a wizard-supremacy agenda over the muggles in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows).
The subplot about Norman losing OsCorp should've been stretched out over the film.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
