So, this thread is for a general discussion about the upcoming re-(re-)boot of the the Spider-Man franchise set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When the news broke in the Marvel spoilers thread, the conversation exploded, but there were several notable posters who I expected to chime in and didn't. I realized that not everyone wants to go into the spoiler thread, and so they missed the conversation. This thread will be unencumbered from the other spoilery stuff that occurs in the other thread. So code any future genuine spoilers. The movie will be released on July 27, 2017 and be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He will first appear in some form in Captain America: Civil War, which begins shooting soon. This opens up all kinds of doors for the Spider-Man franchise and the MCU both. Spider-Man, despite being a "loner" for most of his career, has also been the most teamed-up hero Marvel has ever had. How would you like to see Spidey's introduction into the MCU be handled? What direction would you like to see the movie series go? There were rumors the other day that Drew Goddard had been signed to direct and write the next movie, but they were quickly de-bunked. However, it seems that he may still be a candidate. It would make a lot of sense. He was already going to direct Sinister Six for Sony, and before that he was attached to Marvel's Daredevil show. There should be word on director and star before too much longer, as the movie needs to start development soon if it's going to make it's release date.
