Modern myths are about capturing the imagination on a primal level by using the fantastical to talk about an overarching theme that has meaning beyond the current culture. In short, they're timeless.

The Christopher Nolan Batman movies are an excellent example of this. They are cool because they understand what the characters represent as an archetype.

While this movie might have had some promise to you or Walter as being something else it didn't deliver on, I'm challenging you that it, too, would be a boring current/topical take on Spider-Man, rather than getting at the myth.
