Maybe that will help.
Everything in Amazing Spider-Man feels kind of tame and so muted and I wonder if more development would help? Maybe the story seemed lazy because they were trying to find new ground and that made their differences seem like shortcuts through story and development or maybe they simply cut too much.
It happened bigtime in Incredible Hulk. I like that film a lot but after watching the deleted scenes, I feel it could have been a pure classic had they left some of that stuff in the theatrical cut. ASM can't hit that level because the action seemed average but I'm sure the story could use to gain some more weight.
