In Amazing Spider-Man, they stuck to the comic book roots and had Peter invent mechanical web shooters that use a formula partly developed by his father. Peter's Past ...

Film corporation collaborations are not as uncommon as one might believe. This is especially true when dealing with music or music artists signed to one label that is under the umbrella of another corporation.

Actually actors are supposed to do such things, like losing or getting weight to fit to the movie part. Tobey Maguire did this more than once. Here's the wiki part: Maguire has been a vegetarian since 1992 and in 2009 became a vegan.

The simple answer, believe it or not, is that Sony owns Spider-Man, and Disney owns The Avengers. Avi Arad, founder of Marvel Studios, has said a number of times that the only way he'd lend Spider-Man to Disney is if Spider-Man runs out of story lines. And that's not likely to happen.

The process of making a suit isn't very interesting, and the director probably didn't want to waste much time on it, so they probably ...

I cannot find a youtube video of this, but I saw the original audition Tobey Maguire did for Spiderman. In the audition he took his shirt off to show how cut he was. This is what got him selected for the part. Here is an article online which talks about this. They didn't wait for him to bulk up, the scenes with him looking limp were CGI'd to make him look ...
