    The point was to focus on his beginning more than past movies did which, honestly, seemed fair even if the approach didn't really do much for Spider-Man.

    It doesn't fit the character, for a variety of reasons.
    Yeah, but we hadn't seen two versions of those characters already

    And Idk why Parker Industries doesn't fit.

    Would you have liked a take on Peter more like this character?
    I haven't read that comic, but it's possible

    Not where the high school and development stage was the emphasis.

    Peter's not a corporate/tech CEO type.

    But why do we have to see Peter in high school again?

    I can see Peter not being the CEO type. But I feel he could do more with his scientific knowledge than simply beat up crooks. Maybw seek some upstream solutions.

    Or maybe expand his journalistic endeavors?

    I've personally never been in love with Peter and science jobs. I like him doing science, but I prefer photography.

    I'm not interested in seeing him from the beginning for the 3rd time in a live action movie. I already know his origin. I want an already established MCU Peter Parker. And he can still do photography. But he has all this scientific knowledge and doesn't use it for much of anything beyond the basic superhero stuff. It almost seems like a waste

    I'm not saying I didn't either, but I get where they were coming from starting from the beginning.

    I just don't think they really handled it as well as they could have.

    Ok. I see why they did that, but having a too-young Spider-Man next to the aging Avengers is jarring to me, despite liking Holland's performance and movies way more than the other two, aside from Spider-Man 2. It's the same with Batman and superman. Skip the origins and move on.

    But it seems to me Spider-Man is stuck in an endless cycle across media.

    It's not all that off from Ultimate Spider-Man in terms of age dynamic, if not that similar in execution.

    They did skip the origin though. Which, to be honest, I don't think really worked that much for Holland's Peter.

    I liked that part of Holland's Peter tbh

    And I prefer 616 where he's more of a peer to the other Avengers

    I might have too, if not for Iron Man.

    At least in the first Garfield movie Uncle Ben was still relatively important to Peter.

    He grew into that though.

    I know he grew into it, but he didn't start out so much younger than the others.

    I don't need to see Uncle Ben repeated a third time. Although I do wish Peter thought up his own missions rather than receiving them from others. That's why I want him to be closer in age to the other Avengers. I feel like Andrew Garfield was the right age

    Certainly more than Holland's Peter, but he kept whining about Richard Parker in those films.

    How many heroes in the MU were 16 when they started their Superhero careers?

    At best it would be just Johnny.

    I'd rather Peter actually bring up Uncle Ben instead of pretending he doesn't exist.

    Is Richard Parker worse than Tony Stark?

    There is no question that Holland's Peter thinks of Aunt May as basically being his mom.
