Excited and hurt at the same time.
LOVED Garfield as Spidey, wish they would just continue with him and ignore the first two movies (apart from an occassional reference to Gwen). Excited to see what Marvel will do, do they have time to squeeze Spidey into Civil War?
I'd love to see Marvel eventually do Kraven's Last Hunt on film. Who would you cast? If MIles Teller hadn't been cast in Fant4stic I'd have loved to see him in the part.
I thought Garfield was a horrible Peter Parker, so I'm happy he'll be replaced. I thought Sony was ruining the film life of my favorite superhero, having been largely responsible for why Raimi's third film was so disappointing, then offering an at-best mediocre reboot, which was followed by an extremely poor sequel - so to say I'm "happy" about Marvel finally being involved is an understatement in the extreme.
Here's the latest tidbit, though, which I'm honestly not sure how happy I am about...
I'm sooooooooo tired of young Peter/Spidey. The majority of animated versions have been young. The Raimi versions started young and didn't last long enough to give us a truly mature & seasoned Spidey. Then they rebooted to a (supposedly) even younger version. It's already been thirteen years since Spidey hit the big screen and now he may get even younger still?!? Aaargh! It's not the only interesting period of the character's (comic book) life! Hell, it's probably not even the most interesting period of his life!!!
I do admit the validity of the point about the interesting contrast a young Spidey could provide in the MCU. Still, the only way I'd really be jazzed in any way is if he is A) cast well, and 2) allowed to finally mature into adulthood and grow as a character. If we can finally see him dealing with grownup problems, instead of teenage angst or symbiote-induced emo-ocity. However, while I've read at least five articles about the Sony-Marvel deal, I still haven't seen any indication of a duration for this agreement. So, who knows if it'll last long enough for Peter to grow up. Not to mention the need for an actor willing to stick with the character that long. Plus one little detail that still has me slightly nervous about this deal, in general: the phrase "Sony Pictures will continue to...have final creative control of the Spider-Man films."
I agree with part about with how they dealt with the aftermath, certainly. Still, it's a shame, because I did enjoy his actual role during the arc, itself. His struggle with which side he truly belonged on and divided loyalties, fueled even more by his bonding with Tony was interesting.
Plus - Iron Spider armor!!!
