The original, Silver Age Spidey comics are my favorite of all time, but I'm happy with what Disney has done "shrug". They have maintained the spirit of the character, and of those stories, while updating some of the aspects due to it taking place in modern times Vs. the 1960s (Peter WOULD go to a school for the gifted these days, etc.), and due to him being more heavily involved with other Marvel characters due to The MCU. I mean, it's not old-school, but the Iron Spider suit IS from the comics.

I'd have to disagree with you a bit here. Peter made his own suit ('cause Aunt May raised the boy right and taught him some self reliance), invented his own webbing, and had neither mentor nor confidante when he started out (and yeah, it might have been nice if a 15yrold boy had a little help, but then again Pete's been doing his thing before Iron Man).Its one of the things I don't like about the MCU- they've made Stark the focal point of far too many events. Peterwas a shy, bookwormish, lonely nerd. That's not meant to be a put down, its a fact. Heroes likeZorro, the Shadow, Batman, Superman, etc. allpresented their alter egos as bored millionaires,timid types, clumsy oafs, or nerds, but Peter really was a nerd and that resonated with the fans buying his comics. This was a guy they could identify with (I certainly did).

And yes Peter was clearly intellectually gifted, but even "genius school" costs $$ and balancing that with time spent between studying and taking care of Aunt May, chances are he couldn't afford it. He didn't have (or need) a billionaire inventor to count on. Peter was working class and he and Aunt May struggled with bills just to get by- something else kids could identify with. Remember that when he got his powers, he was going to use them to get out of debt, get rich, take care of himself and Aunt May....get that paper, yo.

Of course he had to learn the hard lesson that money aint everything, and from that he (and We) learned that...With great Power, comes great Responsibility.

The SPIRIT of Spider-Man is that he is the original hard-luck hero. Lee created him, and others like him, to be heroes with real problems, money, girls, illness. Peter Parker is a guy who has to worry about his sick aunt, rent, washing his suit, working at a job he doesn't necessarily like.

He doesn't go to genius school, doesn't go on class trips to Italy, doesn't have a talking bionic supersuit, and wasn't chosen as a "special friend" by the world's most douche-bag millionaire (yeah, they F-ed up Iron Man to).

The current powers-that-be at Disney have not only failed miserably to "maintain" the spirit of Spider-Man, they wouldn't recognize said spirit if it came up and bit them on the butt.

And yes, the Iron Spider suit was from the comics, just like "One More Day," "The Clone Saga," and Thanos' helicopter.

According to who? Sergei's mom?Hopefully, after Morbius doesn't do big business, Sony will just scrap this awful idea, and offer to sell to Disney. Since when is Kraven an "antihero?" He's a villain. He hunts Spidey for sport- there's not really any grey area there.

Unlike Disney's take on Spider-Man, who wears a talking suit of metallic tights, goes to genius school, and takes class outings to VENICE, FRIGGINGITALY!!!

Let's just keep everyone we can out of Disney's sweaty little hands for now . . . ESPECIALLY Spider-Man.

Execs believe that anything made by Marvel will become a successful movie franchise due to the success of most Marvel movies. Can't wait until someone announces a movie based on The Imp, one of Stan Lee's first creations.

Yes and its sad. It does seem like this is the mindset and if it is, they're going to put out a bad one that will get trashed 4x as bad as it really is, mainly because it didn't keep up with the blockbuster streak Marvel's had these past 10+ years. So why set yourself up to fail?

Failing on tv/cable is one thing, and even that's had horrible consequences....but fail on the big screen....!

I would love Disney/Marvel to reacquire the full rights to Spider-Man because I don't trust Sony. I think their instincts have been mostly bad for a long time. However, if I were given the chance to help them I would say there are actually a few properties within the Spider-Man orbit that they could make movies of that don't require Spider-Man or the MCU's involvement.

SILVER SABLE -- Yeah, Sony keeps talking about a "Silver and Black" team-up movie because they think that's a winning formula and, I dunno, both girls have white hair, so... synergy?!?!? It's a stupid idea because they have nothing to do with each other. But Silver Sable is very much a viable character. She's a ****ing Nazi hunter! And what better time than now to remind audiences that killing Nazis is always a good thing. You cast someone like a Charleze Theron (it doesn't have to be her; she doesn't have to be in every female fronted action movie) and you make the movie a cross between Promising Young Woman and Inglorious Basterds with some big action superhero shenanigans thrown in.

DEADLY FOES -- While Spider-Man deals with the Sinister Six in his own movies, you make a small budget, darkcomedy crime saga about the pathetic C-listers of Spidey's rogues gallery. Look at the old Deadly Foes and Superior Foes of Spider-Man comics for reference. Grab some sad sack villains like Rocket Racer, the Ringer, the Beetle, White Rabbit, Frogman, Spot; they get themselves involved in a mob war between the likes of Silvermane and Hammerhead, maybe throw in Tombstone and the Enforcers, Fancy Dan, Montana, and Ox for good measure. Keep it small, funny, dark; think Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, or Sexy Beast, or Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. The best part is, you can have scenes where all the criminals talk about the time they got caught by Spider-Man, and actually show Spider-Man beating them up, but since the criminals are narrating the story all of his dialogue is voiced by them, so you don't need Tom Holland or Andrew Garfield or anybody to "play" Spider-Man and step on the toes of what's going on in the MCU.

Agree 100%.. the characters they have announced besides Venom cant even headline a comic book but Sony thinks they can build a movie franchise around them??

Its as if they're saying, we can't use Spider-Man, we'll use someone else in the Spider-Man mythos....like Venom.

Thing is, Venom as ex-Spidey villain/ anti-herocan work (as we've already seen) in a stand alone film.

Doesn't mean it works for Kraven ( or Shocker or Hammerhead or whoever else rounds out Spidey's B-C list of supervillains).

Big fan of the actor but this is just dumb. Disney/ Marvel have long term planning and their decision of who gets a movie are normally well received (normally.. looking at you Eternals and Shang Chi).

this.. smacks of Sony execs throwing darts at pictures of characters they have the rights too to make their decisions.
