I can understand most people's confusion or distate for Garfield's interpretation of Peter in the film. But you have to understand what the filmakers were aiming for. They were trying to re-invent Peter/Spider-Man for a modern era, this era and in today's world, the representation of "nerd/geek" is different than what is was 50 years ago. Having said that, I'd say the portrayal was extremely well done.

Seriously mate? How is Peter different than the majority of high school students in today's era? He's quiet, held off, quirky and has a hobby like skateboarding -- which most kids take up around that age. Disregarding his scientific brilliance and Spider-powers, he isn't all too different.

@Deranged Midget: But peter is not normal is he? I don't know more than 1 or 2 teens who are quiet, held off, quirky or like skateboarding, that's a stereotype. And Garfield was not more than 50% of those things apart from quirky and skateboard liker.

Definition of a geek-

An unfashionable or socially inept person.

Nope, he was fashionable, good looking, brilliant confidence. He is NOT peter Parker.

Sorry mate, but I can't take what you are saying seriously right now. That definition is so outdated it's ridiculous and in modern times, geeks/nerds are completely different than what they were when Peter was first introduced as a geek/nerd.

A stereotype? Walk into a high school, I can guarantee that more than 50% of the teens you see are extremely shy, quiet and keep to themselves and their "cliques". Most teens do not exude confidence, most of them do have their own hobbies; video games, skateboarding, trading cards -- whatever it may be and I can vouch for that because I was like that in high school, as were a LOT of my friends.

Peter was quiet, he sat in the back of the class, never talked to anyone. He kept to himself, almost shunned by everyone else. Where did he exude "brilliant" confidence? He stuttered in front of everyone he talked to, he could barely put together a sentence when talking to Gwen. Sure, he was good looking, but are you saying that every geek/nerd has to be hideous?

You seem to refuse to accept that times are different and that the definition of what a "nerd/geek" was fifty years ago is incomparable in today's standards. Clothing styles are completely different, you won't find many people tucking in their polo's, having taped up glasses or whatever the stereotype used to be for a nerd.

@Deranged Midget: All of your post is based on assumptions and stereotypes. He asked out the best looking girl in the school without even knowing her, his un-confidence kills me. Not.

I go into a school everyday, and nope, I see probably less than 10 people like you say. I can recall one child called chris, that's about it. and what if the times have changed? in that case peter should have been a spotty, 0 confidence , fat and video-gamer not a skateboarder type person. IT IS RIDICULOUS WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. this convo about 50 years if nonsense.

It's like saying , lets give batman a gun as you know, nobody uses H2H anymore... Or lets just give Thor a gun, as hammers are so old school.

Asking out the best looking girl? She was good looking and considering her to be the "best looking" is subjective mate. And if you really think that he had "insane" confidence by taking an entire minute of stuttering to even try to say something to her and forcing her to act on it, then I can't really take you seriously for that.

I've been in high school, I know how people acted, I was one of those "nerds/geeks". How is differentiating the times nonsense? People acted differently in the 60's than they do now, it's painfully obvious, especially with the way people dress, talk, etc. Things are now more accepted than they once were. Comics for example, or video games.

You're assumption for how geeks/nerds should appear is amusing. I consider myself a geek but I'm not fat, nor do I lack confidence and I play video games religiously, I have skateboarded in my life and I adore comics. You are stereo-typing to the worst degree and in most regards, it's offensive.

@Deranged Midget: You cant take ME seriously, Show me a nerd even having the guts to talk to ( one of ) the best looking girls in the school.

You call me offensive? I could flag you for offending me with your " then I can't really take you seriously for that." If I was offended easily.

You can talk about your a nerd all you like, the fact is, your making excuses for Garfield not acting like PETER PARKER. He is not acting a modern kid, he is acting Parker, and Parker does NOT act like that.

And i'm stereotyping am I, tell me again how you said this

"A stereotype? Walk into a high school, I can guarantee that more than 50% of the teens you see are extremely shy, quiet and keep to themselves and their "cliques". Most teens do not exude confidence"

The fact is you probably went to some weird place, if 50% of your teen's are as you described, they really really need to see help, seriously. Modern teens are probably the opposite of what you described, I see them everyday...

Again you are going off the topic, Why is it acceptable to change Peter as times change? No other hero is changed for that reason alone as you are insinuating. Its an excuse.

Refer to my PM to you.

Where are you basing your definition of nerd from? Why must a nerd be the most insecure child on the planet? Why do you think a nerd has to dress terribly? That's a stereotype mate. I meant no disrespect mate, but a lot of your opinions on what a nerd is or should be is outdated.

You can talk about your a nerd all you like, the fact is, your making excuses for Garfield not acting like PETER PARKER. He is not acting a modern kid, he is acting Parker, and Parker does NOT act like that.

I'm not making excuses for anything, I'm just trying to state that in modern times, things ARE different, whether you want to accept it or not. Fashion is different, hobbies are different, people are different. The Amazing Spider-Man was paying homage to the classic but in a sense, modernizing the tale for future generations. What kids today will grow up with is completely different than what people grew up decades ago.

And i'm stereotyping am I, tell me again how you said this

"A stereotype? Walk into a high school, I can guarantee that more than 50% of the teens you see are extremely shy, quiet and keep to themselves and their "cliques". Most teens do not exude confidence"

Some weird place? No, I went to high school. Sure, some teens gain confidence as they become comfortable with their surroundings and the people they hang out with. But throw them into a group of strangers and you'll hear crickets chirping. Young teens are a nervous, shy bunch. Not of all them sure, but I never stated that all of them were. I find it very hard to believe that you've only seen "1 or 2 people" acting shy, quiet or kept to themselves.

Again you are going off the topic, Why is it acceptable to change Peter as times change? No other hero is changed for that reason alone as you are insinuating. Its an excuse.

Why is it acceptable? So kids can relate to the character. Parker as he is now is no longer a teen, he is a fully grown adult, a rich adult and a good looking one at that. How can you expect kids to relate to that? So, in turn, they decided to take him back to his roots in TASM and modernize him. Instead of having him wear stereotypical "nerd" clothing, he's dressed as most kids would in this day and age. Baggy sweaters, jeans, skate shoes, etc.

No other hero is changed as Peter was because no other hero has had that same impact. You think people relate themselves with Bruce Wayne or Superman? No, because people aren't billionaires, they aren't near invincible aliens from another planet. Most people are struggling with their day-to-day lives, with relationships, with money, with school and Peter is relatable in that sense -- minus the super-powers.

Since when did "Hipster" become the new "Emo"? Seriously you guys have robbed the term of any meaning. All it means now is "someone I don't like because they like different stuff than me"

Seriously. Use the f**king terms right.

Peter was neither a hipster nor an emo. He was just a super-nerd with a few hundred weird-ass quirks who dressed shockingly well.
