This weekend saw the release of the new Spidey viral. Here we see Dr. Curt Conners (played by Rhys Ifans) requesting interns for Oscorps latest regeneration programme, one that may see the limb lacking Connors take a turn for the worse.
As enticing as this may be, let us not forget all the hard work Sam Raimi put into developing Dr Connors character in the form of Dylan Baker. For two films he sat at the back of the class , one arm sleeve completely and subtly turned up whilst he gently forged a relationship that would soon test the moral fabrics of our troubled teen protagonist. This slow but ever present character development really resonated with me and I couldn’t wait for the next episode of the Spidey saga so I could see what becomes of the friendly Dr.Connors. Unfortunately, as we know, Raimi threw in the towel and the worlds most iconic, comic character was thrown into a dark gothic world.
Only time will tell whether Garfield can embody Peter Parker as well as Tobey Maguire did, or whether 500 days of Summer director Marc Web really has got the wrong end of the stick.
