ASM2 has only made $705 million! Everybody panic.
Sadly, in today's world of massive superhero films, that is a bit of a disappointment. It's the lowest grossing Spider-Man film ever, and on top of that Sony blew a ton of money on both the budget and marketing.

I blame the system that expects these movies to break a billion and the marketing alone is a joke to be honest - most people didn't want what they got with TASM 2. MOS made $668,045,518 PANIC! add Batman for the next film. Ugh.

Deborah Ann Woll in the MCU, heck yeah. I'm suddenly hoping Netflix takes these Street-Level shows to a slightly edgier place than the tamer major films & Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
I've been hoping this since the announcement of Netflix's involvement. If House of Cards and Orange is the New Black are any indication, we might very well get the kind of edge a show about Daredevil would require.
Yeah, my suspicion is the reason for choosing Netflix is to approach that level. I don't think it'll be quite as "mature" as that (probably more violent than either show, though), but certainly at an FX level.

This news makes me very happy. I love her on True Blood.
The only reason this disappoints me is I was really hoping somebody would do an adaptation of Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series, and that she would be Rachel. This was just a dream though, since nobody is actually an adaptation right now.

Well we know for a fact that Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicle, & Terry Pratchett's Shannara Series have all been picked up recently for Film/Television in various stages of Production. So there's always hope.
