I know the announcement about Spider-Man being rebooted was made a week ago. And since then I’ve been mulling over how I really feel about it. First of all, I’m all for a change of direction in the Spider-Man franchise. Sam Raimi’s trilogy are some of my favorite movies that I have a personal connection too.

Having the pilot greenlit is a huge leap forward to this becoming a reality.”
