A big difference between the Sam Raimi's trilogy of Spider-Man and the new Spider-Man reboot is Uncle Ben's killer is neither found, nor killed by Peter in the new movie. Why is that? I thought they are following the comics. I am ignorant of the comic books. So what is the real story? And if there is a change in the movie's story, why is that?
Neither in the comics, nor in the Sam Raimi movie does Spider-Man kill the person responsible for Uncle Ben's death (in the comics he dies of a heart attack, in the movie he falls out of a window. Although Spider-Man 3 reveals that it was actually Flint Marko who shot Uncle Ben).
I think the important part is not the death of the culprit, but the following realization:
Using a police scanner he hunts for his uncle's killer.
But things change when the Lizard wreaks havoc on the bridge and Peter manages to save people (including a child). The next day the talks to Gwen about it:
Even though he hasn't caught Uncle Ben's killer, Peter has learned that he can't just look the other way when people need help. Stopping the Lizard is more important than looking for the thief who killed his uncle... at least for the moment (The Amazing Spider-Man is supposedly the start of a new trilogy).
In the Amazing spider-man they are following the same path as th real comics accept for the wrestling part.In the real story the events occurs as -
That's may be the writers choice in the Rami's trilogy to kill the burglar by the hand of spider-man but in original story events are different.
