Your main issue with both Man of Steel and Amazing Spider-Man 2 is that:
- you understand the characters and you know who they are, how they feel
- the filmmakers don't know anything about that

I'll tell you: these are COMIC-BOOK characters. They do not exist in real life. Every movie you see about them is nothing more than a filmmaker's own interpretation. There is no "right" and "wrong" here. Marc Webb and the entire crew wanted to present Spider-Man under this particular angle, I accept you don't like it, but PLEASE don't say he "betrayed" the character or "failed to understand" him.

Next time, please write instead: "The filmmakers failed to understand this imaginary character the way I did". This would be more accurate.

A serious reviewer needs to keep his mind open, and to judge beyond his own tastes. Time to retire?
