        I really dont care and I was interested at 4 and curious, I just think... realistically we aren't going to get another Spider-Man movie going on since we already have two along with the on going video game series. Sorry people got there hopes up

          So you guys in the comments are saying that if they just switched the number to 5 you would have been totally cool with this blatant act of nepotism ? k ..

                @David Blyth Yeah it is. To get mad cause they started at 4? How silly is that? People can get angry about anything these days.

                If you want decent comics, head to DC. Marvel only shines in the silver screen

                  @Alexa
                  Bendis is on Superman, King is writing Batman, Heroes in Crisis just happened and etc. Honestly I think the only book I'm really enjoying at DC right now is Green Lantern and that's just because of how bizarre it is.

                  Yeah, I don't even read Marvel comics anymore. Literally half the stories they release are all about feminism.

                Honestly, I’m fine that J.J. is writing a comic book. But honestly, I don’t know how I feel now if his son isn’t a great experienced writer.

                          You wanna know why he started at 4, THIS....all of this. You're talking, we're talking, the whole of the internet is talking. And now you wanna know more, mission accomplished.

                              IGN made no effort into tracing the orgin of the 'backlash' (which was the internet jumping the gun) and reported it as 'fact', when it was anything but. Marvel didn't mislead anyone over this and C.B. Cebulski was quick to verify that it WASN'T a Spider-Man 4 adapation shortly after the first teaser.

                              IGN cannot even MAKE an argument about why fans felt the way they did, either because they either simply skimmed over fan reactions in lieu of proper research or more likely, just wanted the clicks. From a major news outlet, with monetised content, that's unacceptable. This isn't an individual Youtuber, this is a MAJOR game/entertainment website.

                                You work years as a writer to get a gig like this. It shouldn’t be handed to you, you have to earn it by cutting your teeth with experience.

                                        That's what it was? Oh, that's lame. I was kinda excited about Spiderman 4 adaptation. Total blunder, who cares if some movie director makes a comic.

                                              I’d have probably been fine with the reveal just being the Baxter building popping up in Far FromHome

                                                Should have started at 5 or 3. Really not really countdown worthy to begin with...

                                                  If they are making Spider-Man 4 I want Spider-Man 4 on screen with older Tobey, not a comic.

                                                    Would’ve been fine if they started at 3... then counted down.

                                                    They flipped the coin that that would get fans interest and it didn’t land the way they thought lol.

                                                      Simple answer: Poop. They handled it poopily.

                                                        Well... This should show Marvel just how much people loved the original trilogy. Lately I've heard a heck ton of people say the 3rd movie is actually not as bad as they remembered. So come on Marvel, make Spider-Man 4 already!!

The whole JJ Abrams is working with comics to write a Spider-Man story isn't even big enough to be a countdown or an announcement in the first place.
