It sounds great.

I am now hoping for a live action version of Disney XD's Ultimate Spider-Man.

There's too much money in play for this not to happen sooner or later.

Also, clearly, Marvel thoyght Garfield sucked.

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.

Garfield seems like a great guy, the things he does to relate to kids is heart warming. With that said his movies sucked worse than Spider-Man 3. Those Amazing films were not really Garfield's fault, Routh was also a good Superman in a crappy Superman film so it happens... studios move on.

Except for all the crying, I enjoyed Garfield's portrayal. If he wasn't going to be part of Marvel's bigger plans, I'd love to see his Peter Parker team up (Why isn't there a MCU "Marvel Team-Up"?) with Miles Morales in some kind of mantle-passing. To add, I didn't mind Maguire's portrayal either.

If Marvel's going with a new Parker, I've read Anton Yelchin's name mentioned on a few sites. I'm cool with that.

Seriously the best news of the year! Will miss A. Garfield but worth it to have Spidey in the MCU!!

That gif. Is it the lens or perspective, or is his head actually that disproportional to his body?

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...

 

Marvel's Spider-Man Will Be Much Younger

 

 

 

 

 


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 think the MCU will answer your prayers about a mature Spidey. I don't see the universe being rebooted any time soon so if the actor is good he'll probably be allowed to play the character for 20 years or more. That provides stability in a time when the other major characters will be either phased out or recast.

I agree. Marvel is probably going younger again in hopes of carrying the actor thru the years and multiple appearances even outside of solo projects. That sounds like a duh, I know. I would also guess that this young Spidey could shoulder most of the inexperienced hero blame in Marvel's Civil War film project. Might be easier to use Spidey as the figurehead, the ignition point and redemption story than to recreate Spidey and also introduce a cadre of young heroes to blame.

That sounds good... putting Spider-Man in the New Warriors/Speedball role instead of the actual role he had in Civil War. That way you get out of contriving a way of making everyone forget Peter Parker = Spider-Man

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.

Yeah they can't do an old Spidey because the MCU is new to having superheroes outside of Captain America. An older Peter wouldn't fit in given that his origin has that bite hitting him in high school.

They won't do another origin, they'll jump him in, but I think people would have more trouble with an adult Peter Parker being bit than the idea of a young Spider-Man.

I'm pretty sure he has no neck.

 

Also, more to the point, this is super exciting etc etc

I thought AntMan was Marvel's biggest risk. I take that back. I think this will be their biggest risk. Yeah you get Spider-Man back, but you are now going to re cast the role, AGAIN, and you are going to try to shoehorn him into a story arc that has been outlined and carefully constructed for years. Not saying it can't be done, but it's a gamble. People are clamoring for a new Hulk movie because they want to see what Ruffalo can do with the part, but they're not doing it because it wasn't part of the plan. Since deals like this don't go down overnight, it is reasonable to believe that they have been kicking around story ideas for a while.

They could work in Spider-Man the same way the have Black Widow. She's been in 3 of the films, none of them solo. 

 

Also, this is fun:

That was great.

Honestly, the very first time I watched Avengers, during the Avenger to Avenger single shot, I thought Spider-man swinging around taking out Chitauri would've fit in perfect between Hawkeye's arrow shot and Thor and Hulk taking down the big ship.

I've heard marvel doesn't want to do any more origin stories at all, even for the non-mainstream heroes like Strange and Captain Marvel.

You couldn't do a third one with Spider-Man and not elicit a groan of "not again". But if they want to not only send him back to high school and possibly make him younger as rumored how do you not.

He became Spider-Man after the invasion of New York and has been taking care of small, petty criminals and nothing big yet, like the Netflix shows. Simple.

Everyone knows the origin. No need to retell. It's easy to join in medias res.
