I guess one big difference to the batman reboot is that the first Batman series didn't tell an origin story. Spiderman did first time round and felt they needed to this time which meant there were bound to be similarities.
That being said I do feel they've presented a better Peter/Spidey this time. More of a smart arse and less of a drip. Love Garfield's Spider-Man and look forwards to seeig him reprise and develop it.
