    I saw a Wall Street Journal article saying Cap 3: Civil War cameo was confirmed. But that's the only time I've seen it confirmed.

    I'm just sad that the rights switcheroo means Andrew Garfield is out as Spider-Man. To me, just like Robert Downey Jr is Tony Stark and Sam Jackson is Nick Fury, Andrew Garfield is Spider-Man. He played a great Peter Parker and fit the role of Spider-Man well. And like Chris Pratt, he clearly had a hell of a time playing the role.

He played a fine Spider-Man, but I can't agree that he played a good Peter Parker. Of course, it wasn't his fault, really--he played the part that was written. That part just wasn't Peter Parker.


I'm thinking more along the lines of the first movie rather than the second. I don't think Peter has to be a recluse or a complete outcast and I thought his portrayal of the new low end of the food chain in a modern high school was a good one. I also think it makes perfect sense for him to be haunted a bit by his parents, dead under mysterious circumstances. I didn't enjoy how much the movies focused on that, but I think Peter being an orphan and it impacting him...(and really, with Uncle Ben, orphaned in a sense twice).
