A few days ago the news came through that Spidey will be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony Pictures have held the rights to the Spider-Man franchise since 1999, but now they've agreed to team up with Marvel Studios to create a new, revamped, recast Spider-Man.
Before he stars in his own new movie (again), due in 2017, he's most likely to have a cameo in Captain America: Civil War. And the collaboration paves the way for many more crossovers with other characters from the Marvel Universe. And means they can continue to milk that cash cow.
The internet went slightly nuts over the news and swivelled between intense excitement and mocking the fact Spidey was getting yet another reboot. Standard internet viewpoints then.
Here are some of the reactions.
