*A built in computer that talks to him and calculates stuff for him
*A mini spider drone for scouting stuff
*Built in flight suit
*Deployable parachute
*Eye lenses that focus and enhance
*And other stuff I probably missed and stuff they haven't shown

It's way too much. It all takes away from the point of Spider-Man. Where's the struggle?
I know that he'll lose the suit and will have to prove himself without it, blah blah blah, but having it all in the first place is just unnecessary. I bet the film will end with him having all that junk back too.
Ugh.
If they gave him the Iron Spider suit, he would be Iron Man 2.

No I was counting the 1978 Japanese film, which is like an episode of the Japanese TV show, which for some reason premiered in theaters.

Ehh, I loved Spidey in Civil War but everything about this movie has turned me off. From the Daddy Stark angle to the Tech suit to Flash Thompson & other characters. Just not excited for this movie anymore I wish I was, I had such high hopes after Civil War but so far, Marvel has been making mind boggling choices

Great news! I'm always up for more Spidey movies. The only problem I think they could run into is the actors growing up between films/during filming.

What the hell is wrong with Peter growing up? He's in his thirties in the comics and he's a happily married man in at least two other ongoing continuities [Newspaper strip and Renew Your Vows, where he's also a dad]

Nothing wrong with Peter growing up, bu Spider-Man is the quintessential non-sidekick teen superhero. And I think a good chunk prefers teen Spidey to deal with teen things and let other adult heroes deal with adult stuff. And Superheroes always reverts back to status quo, permanent change is strange and hard.

Bollocks. He even graduated in the Raimi movies and dealt with adult themes there.

Peter was only ever a high schooler for THIRTY THREE issues in his comic book run.

A ''good chunk''? Nah, just people with a severely flawed and false perspective of what Spider-Man is about..something not helped by the continuous push in the televised medium to keep him a teenager.

Hell, even in the nineties animated series, he was a young adult and even got married.

Like Candy Kappa said, there's nothing wrong with that. I like a lot of adult Spiderman stories and have always thought that Peter getting married and having kids was the best future for him.

I also really like Ultimate Spiderman (the comics not that ghastly children's show) and think that they told some good stories that they couldn't with an adult Spiderman. And since the MCU version of Spidey seems to take a lot from that version and a lot of people are gonna recognize him and remember him as a high schooler struggling to be a teen and Spiderman at the same time, I figure they'd want to keep him in high school for the sake of variety and convenience. But, like I mentioned, actors getting older could present a problem.

Yeah, how old was he in the 90s animated series because I never knew he was supposed to be a teenaged superhero until the Raimi films. The newspaper comic strips and the 90s were my introduction to Spidey.

The "Spider-Man as a teenager" schtick I think greatly undervalues the character. There are so many zany comics and cartoons about teens leading secret lives, and having to get to school at the same time! What made Spider-Man so compelling and stand out from the rest to so many people wasn't that he had to keep it a secret from Aunt May or whatever, it was the enormous burden Peter constantly placed on himself by being Spider-Man - which especially in later issues made him a constant loser, never being able to get his life as Peter on track. It kept him from graduating college properly. It kept him from having a love life for so long. He was always behind on rent at his ****** apartment because being Spider-Man necessitated living on the relatively expensive top floor, and he could never get a good job because being Spider-Man took away all of his time - so he had to constantly resort to vilifying himself by supplying Jameson with Spidey pics. Every victory as Spidey resulted in some loss for Peter with few exceptions. This is an aspect that Spider-Man 2 in particular captured very well, and I wish more movies/TV shows would focus on it more instead of the very uninteresting high school setting.

The newspaper strips are... they're weird, man. The storyline right now is that Aunt May's boyfriend, the Mole Man, has been deposed by an immortal Roman emperor, and the monsters have turned against Mole Man now.

But Holland himself is 21 atm, even as he gets older he probably won't look like he's aged much.

Yeah, I was confused that Marvel wanted another teenaged Spider Man considering they're not even doing another origin story in the MCU.

That's... really freaking weird

On another note, I think Nines mentioned it in another thread, Nick Offerman would make a great J. Jonah Jameson since we can't have J.K. Simmons again

I know. Bonkers yet brilliant. I've been reading the strips for nine years now and even with plots like this, it's so much better than the actual comic. It has to be your cup of tea to enjoy it though, otherwise it can drive you batty [as evident by the comments section on the comic kingdom placement for the strip]

The previous storyline involved a team-up with Peter, MJ and Rocket Racoon.

One of the dumbest plotlines I've ever read was from that Spidey newspaper strip, about ten years ago. An absolutely normal butler somehow managed to capture Spidey as well as his rich employer. He tied them up and planned to throw them off a cliff. He set up a video camera to record his heinous deed (????) but at some point tripped over the tripod and fell off the cliff himself. And that's how the adventure ended.
