Now,if Marvel got their hands on S-M,I can easily see them doing the definitive take on the origin,which I'd be willing to revisit one more time.
Gotta disagree there. We actually got to know and see Uncle Ben and have a sense of his relationship with Peter before he died in TASM. We got next to none of that in Raimi's version. Just a speech and such and not much more. Ben's a caricature in SM1. He's an actual character in TASM. Same goes for Aunt May but it's less noticeable which is why I used Ben as my example. And that's just one small part where TASM is far superior. I think it's a vastly better film than the first Spider-man on just about every level imaginable.
You know, it occurs to me that Captain America is basically the superhero equivalent of Mary Poppins. Practically perfect in every way and all that stuff.
