I mean, in the Amazing Spiderman, he kind of has a smart mouth, if you know what I mean (Not that I don't like it!), but in the original he didn't really.Plus in The Amazing Spiderman it was pretty obvious there was something strange about him. I mean, smashing the basketball hoop?!? Didn't ANYONE think it was suspicious?!?I'll have to get some Oscorp wire and make my own xD I wish!WHHHHHY?!? WHHHHHYYYYYYY?!?I know! Just because he didn't remember his name!No-one washes the flag! xD Yeah, I know right? Some people are so stupid! Like if I were in his high school, I would stalk him with lots of love in my eyes :) I KNOW:  WHYYYYY?? All villains are insane. Directors just try to make a point. Oh yeah, and the part when his aunt says he's filthy and he says he was cleaning the chimney. His aunt then says "we don't have a chimney" And then Peter's like: "whaaaaaaaat?" lol xD
