If Peter was pre-destined to be Spider-Man, why bother with the accidental spider bite in the first film?
All kidding aside, I sort of hate the idea of Peter Parker being a science experiment since before the spider-bite. It feels like adding gravy to something that is already doused in gravy. We know where he got his powers. We know why he feels such guilt. Why do the filmmakers feel the need to complicate it and make his entire world smaller like this? By tying every villain to the same source and by making Peter tied to it as well, Spider-Man doesn't feel like a hero trying to make sense of a random world anymore. Instead, it makes him the center of the universe, and it turns everything into an inevitability. Any chance Webb could be convinced to cut all of that from this film the same way he cut it from the first one? May's still five full months away...
