He admits a lack of familiarity with Spider-Man before this film and not really being a fan of superhero comics in general. He even claims to having read very few Spidey comics for research which gives the impression that this was a strictly a paycheck gig for him. Sargent obviously was one of many writers who worked on the movie and this becomes readily apparent when he questions the logic of a particular scene much to Ziskinís surprise. She spends most of the time content to point out bits of trivia, like cameos by family members of the crew. She gamely tries to get Sargent involved but he offers terse responses to most of her lame questions making for an oddly uncomfortable track.
