J/K if any truth to his rumor their obviously modified to character to be a male role, not sure why they'd do that, tho?

Maybe the twist is like that one horror movie where the chick's a dude? Now this dude's a chick.

I really do think its a misnomer. or a red herring or whatever you want to call it.

I also think it's too soon for Kraven. Therefore my guess is still a ASM version of J Jonah Jameson.

They might just be twisting things up like they do in the Ultimate universe. Csokas could just be playing the Dr. Kafka we know in the comics....just a dude version.

Is Kafka a male in the Ultimate universe? In that case it's a big possibility that he's indeed Kafka.

^ I don't think so. But I was just saying the Ultimate universe is known for weird twists and I think this series is trying to do just that.

Had to post this here:


One of the shots from the comics that resembles Andrew Garfield. There are in fact a lot more shots where Peter and Andrew look so similar but this was the most recent one that I could find.

Today, I still think Andrew Garfield is the perfect Peter Parker and Spider-Man. I cannot imagine anyone better in the role. Lots of people will disagree with me on this but I think he is to Spider-Man what RDJ is to Iron Man and what Christopher Reeves was to Superman. He is perfect casting for Spidey in the same way those actors were perfect casting for their respective roles IMO.

I really hope that more people will share the same opinion overtime. Personally, I don't think Andrew gets the full credit he deserves for Spidey and I think this is due to him not being in a jaw-dropping awesome Spider-Man film. Great performances are a lot more noticed when the quality of the film is up there with the performance. This was the case for both Christopher Reeves (Superman I & II) and RDJ (Iron Man and The Avengers). However, Andrew still has to star as Spidey in the film that makes people say "OMG that was so freaking awesome!" when walking out. Not that the first film was bad; just good as opposed to great. That and the first film did get a lot of backlash for simply being a reboot.

I'm really interested to see people's general opinion of Andrew's performance in the upcoming years, when the reboot stigma will begin to fade away and if/when Andrew stars in a TDK/Avengers quality Spider-Man film.

On a serious note........

Dr. Kafka, who is a female in the comics, is the head of The Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane, which, we know plays a role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Ashley is an intergender name.

It can belong to both a man and woman.

Extremely well said and I completely agree. I think a lot of how Andrew has been perceived in the role is due to the fact that many people seemed to really like Tobey and the fact that we just saw SM3 only a few years ago. The last set of films is still pretty fresh in the minds of the viewing public. With a different intepretation of Peter and doing it so soon imo affected the way people see Andrew. He'll get more comfortable in the role with the sequel and imo people will be 'used' to him as the new PP/Spidey. Even if the next movie is just seen as 'better' than the first rather than 'jaw dropping' I'm sure Andrew will again be a bright spot but this time people will take greater notice. Although a 'jaw dropping' movie would be really, really awesome and def wouldn't hurt.

I was rereading The Gauntlet: Rhino today and there's a scene where Peter is just waking up in bed with bedhead hair and he totally looks like Garfield. I'll take a pic in the morn.

I think the script hurt him most. I know how funny Andrew can be with great material but in TASM he wasn't THAT funny. I really do think that this aspect will be much improved in the second one. I liked the funny stuff in both Star Treks

@Shikamaru
I agree as well. 100%.
I rewatched TASM today and couldn't get over the fact that he's such the perfect casting choice. He reminds me of what I read/see of Peter when I'm reading Ultimate or Amazing Spider-Man. He just nails it. Demeanor and looks.
I think you're right. There's three more Spidey films to be made and if he's in all of them like I assume, the audience will kinda "forget" about Tobey and stick to Andrew as Spidey.

@TheWallCrawler
I can already see the potential in humor that this sequel has. He'll do great. He's sucha quality actor compared to Maguire.

The script kinda let him down in my opinion. I thought they were trying to move away from the emo crying every 5 seconds kinda thing but he still feels very emo. I'm kinda bummed that Peter's smart-ass quippy side is never displayed in these movies. I mean they tried a little in ASM, but it always comes across as hurt and angry-emotional and not sarcastic and funny.

That's because he was hunting his Uncle's killer. I thought it was fine though, when he fought the Lizard at School.
