If the films had been reversed and Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man came out first, it would have probably done just as well as Raimi's first film.

Like I said before, the movie most likely won't make more than the first film, I don't recall that many sequels in the past achieving that anyways, but I don't think it will bomb or fall flat at the BO. It's all about how they sell the film to the GA, the trailers better have some great action to get asses in the seats. One of the problems with Webb's first film(other than being an unnecessary reboot) was the action was kind of boring. Also, I wouldn't doubt if a good number of people were so used to Macguire and that cast that they couldn't get into to the new one. Reminds me of a lot of the over the top hate towards Man of Steel, a lot of which amounted to "it's not Christopher Reeve anymore whaaaaa!"
I think the origin redone was seen as unnesseaary
