Reasons why The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) is more accurate than the previous movies.
The web-shooting device.
In the first Spider-Man movie, we see Peter Parker on top of a building practising with his new found powers. One of the most memorable scenes, not only in that movie, but from the whole trilogy, is Peter’s struggle to produce thin web strands from his wrists. His comical expressions and the catchphrase “Up, up and away!”, while serving to the audience’s need for the supernatural aspect in a movie, are completely inaccurate in comparison to the original comics.
Peter Parker, the “bookworm” as his fellow classmates used to refer to him, created an artificial web shooting device that consisted of small gauntlets attached to his hands (top left). The aforementioned gauntlets carried special cartridges filled with a web fluid (entirely made from scratch by Peter himself).
After finding himself in various difficult positions in which Peter’s gauntlets had ran out of web fluid, Peter designed a special belt that would carry extra cartridges, so that he’d never run out again. This belt (top right) was worn underneath his Spider-Man suit as to not interfere with his movements in-battle.
With the help of those gadgets and his superhuman powers, Peter was able to shoot webs from his hands in three different forms: a thin (but strong) string of web (bottom left), a quick spreading spray like web weave (bottom middle), or in liquid form (bottom right).
