    I agree that there's a filter of nostalgia that many fans view the Maguire films through but I also think they still have a lot of merit.

    As for what this announcement will end up being, I'm stumped.

    I hope it isn't something ridiculously anti-climatic but at the same time, I can't imagine what would warrant this kind of build-up.

    Spencer isn't going anyplace on ASM. I don't think a new satellite title would rate this kind of hype. And likewise, an annual or anthology doesn't seem worthy of this much hyperbole.

    But hey, all will be revealed tomorrow!

    Seriously? That announcement is actually a day early as we only had the 1 of the countdown a few hours ago... so maybe there's something else? If this is it... meh.

    You right, Cebulski did said that there was one more day to go, so maybe this isn't it.

    With this level of hype, I was at least expecting a Todd McFarlane page. A project by the writer of a bunch of recent Spider-Man projects, the artist of a current Spider-Man mini-series and a writer/ artist confirmed to be working on various Marvel projects doesn't seem to merit a several day countdown.

    Granted, it's probably like five minutes of work for Cebulski (and a bit of work for whoever made the countdown pictures) to make the tweets and get people talking.

    My guesses:
    -A anthology celebrating... something.
    -The new Spider-Man themed event.
    -A new team book with spider people. Didn't really considered this one until I realized that Miles is off Champions, meaning that he could join a team and Marvel is very likely to get him into one.

    Wasp isn't on the cover, but we know she'll be back in the book too. Nobody's left permanently except for Cyclops.
    He's still a Champion. Just took a break.

    There is no way in hell that's the announcement. The PAD/DeFalco/Frenz thing was announced without much fanfare and the last time they had a countdown like this, Fantastic Four was announced to later become one of their top 5 ongoings.

    if that is it, though, that's godlike

    That can't be right, Larsen was already coming in for Marvel #1000, so they might've convinced him to work on Spidey as well, but I think there has to be another announcement.

    Cebluski said today that there's one more day (or One More Day) to wait until the reveal.

    This issue, however, sure is something I want to read!

    It would be the biggest Spider-Man bait-and-switch since we saw the first footage of the Marvel's Spider-Man cartoon .

    He's sure being a little more overt there (although considering the other stuff he's referenced have been stuff that the reveal wasn't for...).

    Seems like the countdown was referring to a special one-shot coming in September: Going Big #1 by Erik Larsen, Gerry Conway, and Mark Bagley.

    He could very easily be over-exaggerating, but he has said the announcement will be something "No one will expect", and Larsen doing a one-off Spidey issue seems way too much of an "Yeah that makes sense" to fit, so yeah we'll just have to wait and see for tomorrow.

    As this point, I think with the hype, wild speculation, reaction to said speculation being debunked, and all that, it will be an underwhelming announcement. This kinda hype would be fitting for a new series, an event, a major miniseries, or something along those lines, which doesn't seem likely. In any event, expect plenty of people saying: "That's all it was" when it comes out. Heck, I think we could get something major, like an Ultimate Spider-Man/Ultimate Universe revival and people would still be disappointed that it wasn't something grander.

    The Conway/Larsen/Bagley book is definitely what Brevoort was talking about:

    ...But it's definitely not what Cebluski/Marvel have been counting down to.
