I wouldn't consider Raimi's original and sequel (SM3 was terrible) as failures but yeah, Marvel probably can do better.

By that same token, Raimi's original was 15 years ago (from the release date of the new one). Not exactly right on the heels of it. 

Time for a new take with a new cast.

yeah, they really should put out 3 new Spider-man movies every decade. 

Seriously though, it does make sense for Marvel to put their own movies out with underroos. If for no better reason than to mesh him better with the rest of the MCU.

I think it's fair for marvel to get their own spin on their character after Sony's failed attempts.

I believe the new Spider-Man movie, while in the MCU (apparently Stark will make an appearance) and under the purview of Feige, will be a Sony movie and not Disney.

Hmm...regardless, can we talk about how Marissa Tomei is freaking Aunt May?!?!

We haven't seen her in the part yet.  She doesn't have to be sexy.

They've got me hooked so no real complaint, although I would have prefered instead of an origin story to have the origin take place during the opening credits on comic book slides.  3 minutes of setting up the back story and then the movie starts.  They can then do their short internet stuff as they ahve been doing to fill in some gaps later on.  Everyone knows Spidey anyway.

I thought I read somewhere that it may be something like that. Not an origin story again but more like a reintroduction (ie he has his powers already or gets them in flashbacks) and the story is more about him exploring and understanding his new powers.

Interesting, I thought they were waiting for Iron Fist and Luke Cage to release S1?  I think Luke Cage is in August or Sept, not sure about Iron Fist.  Exciting ####.

Yep, Luke Cage hits Netflix September 30, and Iron Fist likely slated for next year

So, when I was a kid it was, Power Man and Iron Fist. They have completely separate story lines? 

The eventually teamed up but Luke Cage, Hero for Hire and Iron Fist had separate comics/storylines as well.

Probably nothing more than an Easter egg, but scenes filmed for GoG2 feature fake movie posters with Nathan Fillion as Simon Williams, aka Wonder Man.

This should break all kinds of records, no?

I mean until the new star wars

It will do well, but I don't think it'll do as well as the Avengers movies. I can see people staying away because it's Cap 3. Especially those who didn't see Cap 1 and/or 2. Cap 2 was said to be the best Marvel movie up to that point, but it did about $200 million less domestically than Avengers 2.

IMO, Cap 2 is still the best Marvel movie (I haven't seen Cap 3 yet, so I'm not counting it).  But because this is a Cap movie, Cap 3 will do less than the Avengers movies.

You're probably right but Cap 3 is effectively Avengers 3.

I couldn't disagree more.

To which part?  That it'll do well, but not as well as the Avengers movies?  That people won't go to see it because it's a Cap movie?  That Cap 2 did about $200 million less domestically than Avengers 2?  That Cap 2 is the best Marvel movie up to Cap 3?

Just about all parts.

I think it will beat the 2nd Avengers movie, maybe even the 1st.

I think people will see it because while it's not an Avengers movie in name, it is in the cast.

I think that this will do better than Cap 2.

I do agree with your last part.

The presence of Spider-man is going to make a box office difference. I think it will likely end up between the first and second Avengers, and I don't think it's impossible that it could pass the first.
