One of the best news I ever received or read regarding Marvel and it's Cinematic Universe was the recent news of a widely popular, fan favorite, friendly neighborhood web head slinging his way onto the big screen with our other beloved heroes. Oh yes that's right, Sony and Marvel have finally reached a deal to allow Spider-Man to swing into the MCU and for some heroes already in the MCU to appear in solo Spider-Man movies.
This is the moment I and I'm pretty much sure other fans of Marvel and it's universe have been waiting for for quite some time now. And quite honestly I'm still trying to imagine and process in my head what it will be like to see him on the big screen and sharing the spotlight with Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and others.
It's been revealed that Spidey will make his appearance in a upcoming phase 3 film, which a lot of people speculate will be the upcoming Captain America: Civil War since that makes the most sense seeing as though Spider-Man plays such a huge role in the civil war.
Along with the news of Spider-Man returning is also the news that Andrew Garfield possibly may not be reprising his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and that yet again we're getting a brand new Peter Parker instead. I've heard mixed reviews/reactions to this news, a fair amount of people were upset by this including me slightly, since I'm a fan of Garfield's portrayal of Spider-Man and I deem it to be flawless and pretty much spot on. Though he may not be the BEST Peter Parker,there's no denying his Spider-Man portrayal as anything other than down packed and straight out of the comics.
I've read articles claiming that actors, Logan Lerman, Dylan O'Brien, Donald Glover and Taron Egerton are fan choices who are rumored to be in the running for the role of Spidey and honestly out of those choices I'd narrow it down to Lerman or O'Brien. I'd love it if Marvel/Sony never reveal the actor behind the mask until the moment where Spider-Man unmasks himself on national TV like in the comic, if he is to appear in Captain America: Civil War.
I think that way it'd be a surprise for everyone and the reactions from people upon seeing the new Peter would be so amazing.
So tell me, Upon hearing this news how did you react? Or who do you think should play Spider-Man now?
