grossed less than Spider-man.And SPider-man 2 Is called one of best comic book films of all time.People had much more meh attitude to amazing spider-man.Amazing spider-man Is only spider-man film to fail to gross 300 domesticly.Even Internation while Box office numbers appear higher than 1 or 2,remember unlike domesticly we can't get inflation numbers,Spider-man 3 did better overseas than ASM.
The GA already like amazing spder-man less than Rami trilogy.In many people's minds they viewed rebooting spider-man as unnecssary or being done way too soon.
People didn't give ASM a chance because of the repeated origin story, more somber tone, and eyesore costume. (ASM2 won't have those problems)
But lets be honest. ASM deserved to make more than SM3.
ASM was average but SM3 was total trash.
