I liked both versions almost equally; however, it took a few viewings of TAS for me to come around. They just tell different stories and I'm good with that. After repeated viewings I do feel Garfield gives a bit of a better portrayal of the character but honestly, I'm not sure that opinion is not influenced by McGuire's 2nd and 3rd installments, which I'm trying not to consider for this post since TAS only has one release to date. Kirsten Dunst I thought was a terrible choice, equal to that of Batman Begins. That being said I'm looking forward to #2 hoping for consistency and fluidity with the first And I'm very much interested in Jamie Fox's portrayal of Electro.
