Execs believe that anything made by Marvel will become a successful movie franchise due to the success of most Marvel movies. Can't wait until someone announces a movie based on The Imp, one of Stan Lee's first creations.

Yes and its sad. It does seem like this is the mindset and if it is, they're going to put out a bad one that will get trashed 4x as bad as it really is, mainly because it didn't keep up with the blockbuster streak Marvel's had these past 10+ years. So why set yourself up to fail?

Failing on tv/cable is one thing, and even that's had horrible consequences....but fail on the big screen....!

Unlike Disney's take on Spider-Man, who wears a talking suit of metallic tights, goes to genius school, and takes class outings to VENICE, FRIGGING ITALY!!!

Let's just keep everyone we can out of Disney's sweaty little hands for now . . . ESPECIALLY Spider-Man.

The original, Silver Age Spidey comics are my favorite of all time, but I'm happy with what Disney has done "shrug". They have maintained the spirit of the character, and of those stories, while updating some of the aspects due to it taking place in modern times Vs. the 1960s (Peter WOULD go to a school for the gifted these days, etc.), and due to him being more heavily involved with other Marvel characters due to The MCU. I mean, it's not old-school, but the Iron Spider suit IS from the comics.

"Kraven is one of Marvel’s most iconic and notorious antiheros, who has encountered Venom and Black Panther, among many others, as well as being one of Spider-Man’s best known and most formidable enemies."
 

According to who? Sergei's mom?

Hopefully, after Morbius doesn't do big business, Sony will just scrap this awful idea, and offer to sell to Disney. Since when is Kraven an "antihero?" He's a villain. He hunts Spidey for sport- there's not really any grey area there.

The SPIRIT of Spider-Man is that he is the original hard-luck hero. Lee created him, and others like him, to be heroes with real problems, money, girls, illness. Peter Parker is a guy who has to worry about his sick aunt, rent, washing his suit, working at a job he doesn't necessarily like.

He doesn't go to genius school, doesn't go on class trips to Italy, doesn't have a talking bionic supersuit, and wasn't chosen as a "special friend" by the world's most douche-bag millionaire (yeah, they F-ed up Iron Man to).

The current powers-that-be at Disney have not only failed miserably to "maintain" the spirit of Spider-Man, they wouldn't recognize said spirit if it came up and bit them on the butt.

And yes, the Iron Spider suit was from the comics, just like "One More Day," "The Clone Saga," and Thanos' helicopter.

I'd have to disagree with you a bit here. Peter made his own suit ('cause Aunt May raised the boy right and taught him some self reliance), invented his own webbing, and had neither mentor nor confidante when he started out (and yeah, it might have been nice if a 15yrold boy had a little help, but then again Pete's been doing his thing before Iron Man). Its one of the things I don't like about the MCU- they've made Stark the focal point of far too many events. Peter was a shy, bookwormish, lonely nerd. That's not meant to be a put down, its a fact. Heroes like Zorro, the Shadow, Batman, Superman, etc. all presented their alter egos as bored millionaires, timid types, clumsy oafs, or nerds, but Peter really was a nerd and that resonated with the fans buying his comics. This was a guy they could identify with (I certainly did). 

And yes Peter was clearly intellectually gifted, but even "genius school" costs $$ and balancing that with time spent between studying and taking care of Aunt May, chances are he couldn't afford it. He didn't have (or need) a billionaire inventor to count on. Peter was working class and he and Aunt May struggled with bills just to get by- something else kids could identify with. Remember that when he got his powers, he was going to use them to get out of debt, get rich, take care of himself and Aunt May....get that paper, yo.

Of course he had to learn the hard lesson that money aint everything, and from that he (and We) learned that...With great Power, comes great Responsibility.
