Nevermind, I’m Not Really Excited About Marvel And Spider-Man Anymore

Well, that didn’t take long.

Yesterday, Marvel and Sony announced that Spider-Man would be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was exciting! A new Spidey! Maybe even some real avenging with The Avengers! But…nevermind. Even though I think it’s fair to say that no one wants to see Spider-Man grow up again, it looks like we’re getting just that. Again. Variety reports that Spider-Man is going back to high school. AGAIN. UGH.

According to Variety:

Sony has put the character, played by Tobey Maguire and Garfield, in Midtown High School before, but the plan is to spend more time in the setting and explore his awkward relationship with other students while fighting crime out of the classroom. Midtown is a major setting in the comicbooks, and Peter Parker also returns to the school to become a science teacher in storylines.

Okay, but…maybe can we not see him go on the stupid field trip and get bit by the stupid spider? Because, just…no.

The only silver lining here is that we might get a different Spider-Man altogether…meaning not Peter Parker. From Variety:

The studio also needs to figure out whether it wants to go with another Peter Parker or introduce another character that suits up as Spider-Man, including Miles Morales, whose father is African American and mother is Puerto Rican.

That could actually be very cool, especially since we’re running really low on the minority superheros right now. It opens the door to many new possibilities for Andrew Garfield’s replacement. Plus, we wouldn’t have to watch Uncle Ben die. AGAIN.

  1. Your title definitely chronicles the reaction I had to this news as well.
    ‘Word on the street’ is that new Peter Parker could be played by Fury’s Logan Lerman or The Maze Runner’s Dylan O’Brien…my votes for Lerman but I do sort of like the idea of a new character all together and skipping ANOTHER Uncle Ben death.

  2. When I heard about this, I must say I was excited but then sort of sad. I really like Andrew Garfield as the Amazing Spiderman, but if they are changing it completely, with a new character… I just don’t know. Then again who am I to say anything. I don’t know that much about the Marvel and DC comics sooo all I can say is that I am a fan of the Avengers and all the super hero movies plus Spiderman. 🙂


  3. Thank you. I’ve seen rumour after rumour after rumour of this, so I’m not surprised, and I don’t care. It’s kind of like when your friends are going to get married; you don’t care about the engagement cuz you saw it coming, and yeah, you’ll go to the wedding, but mostly just because its expected of you. I got Peter’s origin done right in the 90’s and i’m good. If it’s not Miles or older Peter, then it doesn’t matter to me. I’ll see it, and I’ll judge it, but i’m going to go in with low expectations and anything good will be a pleasant surprise.
