After <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/gammasquad/2012/04/not-so-sure-about-the-amazing-spider-man-sonys-with-you-rumor-is-they-hate-it/">hearing about Sony hating "The Amazing Spider-Man"</a>, it became clear one of two things had happened: either Marc Webb had bombed, or he'd made a movie that was actually worth watching but wasn't as "commercial" as Sony had hoped, because it focused on that whole "insecure teenager" thing that execs would like to cut out of the franchise so they could hire somebody in their forties who plays well in Thailand.
