Default Re: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 General Discussion - - Part 11

So, will they avoid JJJ for the entire trilogy? I understand being intimidated by the previous trilogy's perfect portrayal of him, but that shouldn't discourage them from moving forward with a different take on the character. Raimi's JJJ was the perfectly portrayed classic, over the top caricature version, perhaps Webb can take him in his more dimensional, nuanced modern interpretation.
