PETER PARKER/SPIDER-MAN
Tobey Maguire vs. Andrew Garfield Obvious. Only part i like Tobey's Parker more he was more "friendly good guy" Andrew looked like a jerk little bit. But generally Andrew Garfield by far.

GWEN STACY
Bryce Dallas Howard vs. Emma Stone Obvious. I even forgot other series had Gwen Stacy. Can't Blame Bryce Dallas Howard though.

DR. CONNORS
Dylan Baker vs. Rhys Ifans Not much contest. Other guy didn't have much role.

AUNT MAY
Rosemary Harris vs. Sally Field. I liked her traditional aunt role.

UNCLE BEN
Cliff Robertson vs. Martin Sheen. Both were good but Robertson had that rugged,tired from years of responsibility attitude. He seemed like he was expecting more from Peter but waiting him to be the man. Martin Sheen was very sweet hilarious oldman but not the "responsiblity" guy for me.

FLASH THOMPSON
Joe Manganiello vs. Chris Zylka Zylka was better bully and did other parts as well.I didn't even know Joe Manganiello was Flash. Isn't he the idiot wants to be Batman in next reboot?

Tobey Maguire / Andrew Garfield

Andrew was just brilliant. For me, he really got his teeth in to the role. Also, when it got emotional, you really felt for him. Everything just came off as more natural.

Cliff Robertson / Martin Sheen

I enjoyed both actors. Both really convey a warmth that you can't help but feel. However, I liked Sheens Ben more. This was down to how the character was written. Just the way he and Pete interacted and when he was arguing with Pete, trying to be the voice of reason due to being worried with the way he acts (I too have been on the receiving end of these) just really connected with me. So Sheens ben for the win (but both where great).

Rosemary Harris / Sally Field

This may be a bit controversial for some, but I liked Sally Field more. Yes, Rosemary looked more like the old school aunt may, but parts of her annoyed the hell out of me. One aspect where those bloody speeches she kept giving. Who talks like that? Never once have I got advice like that. Also, that bit when the goblin attacks her... terrible acting IMO 'Those horrible yellow eyes... oooohhhh'. I liked Sally just because she came across as a worried aunt who tried to talk to peter like a normal worried person would.

The others I think are unfair to bring in. Due to, in the Raimi films, not being used properly or just being thrown in as a wink to the fans and nothing more.

So it would always be:

Rhys Ifans
Emma Stone
Chris Zylka

I liked her as May, so I wasn't saying I didn't agree.

Garfiled is a hundred times better and at least CAN act. you really need to listen to that 2002 trailer of spiderman back then and hear him talk,thats how he sounded in the ENTIRE movie.he cant act worth a crap.Just like he does in that trailer,in all three of those films like in all his movies,he sounds like he is on drugs.

oh and for those people you allegedly say he was the true spider-man.they are very much in the minority.the proof is in the pudding right here on this thread. see for yourself.Looks to me like most agree with me by the poll Tobey just cant act.lol.

Yes, because a poll on this forum represents the world's opinion.

Andrew is a better Spider-Man/Peter Parker for me too, but it seems that Tobey wasn't supposed to be a contemporary version of the character like Andrew's (Andrew's version reminds me of USM more than anything). It's clear that people prefer Andrew's performance, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate Tobey's for what it was.

Yea, Pete (andrew)/flash slash is more likely.

..actually, I've already seen that on fanfiction.net, just one-sided (from Flash's perspective, lol).

Don't worry -- the fangirls are actually more gaga over the Andrew-Emma romance than anything else

It's hard for me to compare Dylan Baker and Rhys Ifans considering how different they are. There was never any reason to really care for Baker's Dr. Connors since he never transformed into the Lizard or had a real big role other than being Peter's teacher.

PETER PARKER/SPIDER-MAN
Tobey Maguire vs. Andrew Garfield

GWEN STACY
Bryce Dallas Howard vs. Emma Stone

DR. CONNORS
Dylan Baker vs. Rhys Ifans (this is unfair though because Ifans had more time to get it right)

AUNT MAY
Rosemary Harris vs. Sally Field (She suited the character although I liked Sally as Aunt May. They needed to give her something to do though)

UNCLE BEN
Cliff Robertson vs. Martin Sheen (At least he got to say the damn line!)

FLASH THOMPSON
Joe Manganiello vs. Chris Zylka

Overall the cast of ASM was better but the original Spidey had a better story.

I dislike Sally as Aunt May a lot, in the end when she hugged Peter she seemed like she was readig her lines from a paper. There was some good parts at first when she seemed like she was very worried about Peter, but she never really asked him again how he was so injured and they took the easy way by there not being consequences to Peter coming home all bloody

Well she figured out he is Spider-Man, that'd be why.

Considering how different these movies are, I think each cast was great for what each director was going for.

That being said, just looking at it from a character standpoint, movie contrasts and scripts aside, I prefer everyone from TASM over Raimi's movies. Garfield is better from a comedic standpoint, as well as the dramatic than MacGuire, Emma Stone is better at EVERYTHING than Kirsten Dunst (aside from letting her nipples show in the movie), Martin Sheen brings more passion and legitimacy to Ben Parker than Cliff Robertson, same goes for Sally Field vs Rosemary Harris, and Joe Manganiello was just useless and terrible IMO.

It's unfair to compare Dylan Baker to Rhys Ifans, because Baker didn't get to show his talents. He is actually a pretty good actor. However, if you want to compare the idea of Willem Dafoe as Norman Osborn vs Rhys Ifans as Curt Connors, Dafoe wins because he's much more intimidating and startling as a villain. Though Ifans wasn't without his charm.
