I was initially very pessimistic about the Andrew Garfield reboot, but his performance in the Amazing Spider-Man movies won me over. It has been reported that Marvel is opposed to using Garfield again. I hope this is untrue.

Joe, if they're calling it a "re-boot", I suspect Garfield
is done like dinner.

This will definitely add another fantastic layer to an MU that is already a lot of fun.  I'm looking forward to the results and have high expectations. Though, while I am not a Garfield fan and din't particularly care for his take, I don't really want to see another reboot yet either. I would be fine with an established Spidey. 

The movie schedule does illustrate one big challenge with getting properties back from Fox and Sony is that it does crowd an already crowded universe. Just how much can it hold?

I hope they don't do a hard reboot but just tell stories with Spider-man in them that just don't refer to things that they don't refer to. Don't even refer to his origin, or how Ben died.

Just have a status quo and have people accept it.

A bit like James Bond used to be.

I agree, movie goers even if they were not comic book readers have already seen two incarnations of Spidey's origin. Just let it go and try to make a well written movie (while keeping his mask on during fights).

Interesting and surprising.

Marvel is the rightful home for Spidey, of course, but his cinematic home is still ultimately at Sony. What this guarantees is more crossovers and I'm not sure that's what Spider-Man really needs. The Marvel Studios universe is Avengers-centric and I don't think Spider-Man fits too readily into that. Marvel has, so far, been vary patient with pacing the build-up to big crossovers but I suspect crossovers will be shoe-horned in readily to take advantage of this new agreement.

It does open up some nice possibilities of Avengers fighting Spider-Man villains.

This news should excite me more than it does. I just don't like Spider-Man being an Avenger or associated with The Avengers. And they have more than enough great villains to fight, they don't need Spider-Man's.

Besides that, the stink of Spider-Man 3 and Amazing Spider-Man 2 hasn't dissipated yet. I'd hate for the stain of those two horrible movies to bleed over into The Avengers franchise.

Time will tell.

I think Marvel handled very well the "reboot" of the incredible Hulk. that gives me confidence for what's coming up with Spider-man. I'm sure they have different plans up their sleeves.

Preparing for new wave of cast Donald Glover hype, followed shortly by more accusations that we're racist for not liking the idea.

True. Although I loved Norton's Incredible Hulk, Ruffalo (and Whedon, of course) seem to be proving that the 3rd time is the charm. A solo film would be the real test.

I'm definitely curious to see what will happen here.

While my reactions to the Marvel Studios films has varied from joy (IRON
MAN, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY) to disappointment (the IRON MAN
sequels), I still think that Marvel on the whole has a good thing going with
their films. They have their faults like most films that get made, but I've
definitely liked more than I've disliked.

I'm happy to see Spider-Man go into what I would consider 'better hands,'
but I'm still a bit unsure about what we might get here; this will be the
THIRD time Spider-Man has been rebooted in less than 20 years. On the
outset though, I will offer up a short 'wish list' of what I'd like to see -

--No origin story.

--Make Peter Parker a teenager.

--Bring back the Daily Bugle and J. Jonah Jameson.
--Romantic tension, but without dominating the plot (Spider-Man isn't
TWILIGHT).

--Last, but not least - make it fun!

And as far as casting goes, if Marvel needs a new Spider-Man...I'm
available. I can even provide my own costume. ;)

It's already started. I saw article on Yahoo solely about a black Spider-Man, and why he should be the new Spider-Man in the Marvel movie, and there is also this article that discusses the casting of a black actor:

Forbes Spider-Man article.

Suggested by a friend last night - Logan Lerman (of PERKS OF BEING A
WALLFLOWER) is so far my top pick for Peter Parker.

^ He was also Percy Jackson. Yeah... Pass.


The Marvel Juggernaut moves on. I wonder if X-Men and FF will go back to Marvel too. 

Issac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark on GOT) would be my choice. He looks good in classes and is 15 presently. He'll be 17 by the time MCU's Spider-Man comes out. A nice clean break away from the 20 late something year old actors (Garfield and Macguire) playing the role of a highschool Peter.

"Last, but not least - make it fun!"
****

I like that idea.  Let me add:
  • Keep the mask on.
  • Don't ridicule the source material specifically, or the genre in general (and the fans, by extension).
  • Make it an all-ages film (and if the film makers absolutely reject the notion of the concept of an all-ages film, make it for the kids).

Not really shocked because of Sony's financial problems over the past few years that they would cut some kind of deal. I am cautiously optimistic about future movies because Spider-Man is such a great character (probably my favorite). But, I don't believe Marvel/Disney's magic will last forever so there's that.
