In case you didn't hear the thrilling Spider-Man news that Marvel has been teasing us with for days and getting the internet whipped up in a frenzy for, J.J. Abrams and his son [insert name here] are writing a comic...
That's it. Announcement over. I don't know who let all these crickets in, but they're noisy little buggers.
The countdown to the reveal began with a mysterious number four that had everyone losing their shit over the prospect of a Sam Raimi Spider-Man 4 comic book, amongst other things. The other things didn't cover this damp fart of announcement however.
The internet hasn't let us down though, and people have been very upfront with their thoughts on the news - which you can read more about here - and we've rounded up our favourites for you to peruse at your leisure below, while you feel all smug and superior. I don't know who I'm supposed to be making fun of anymore, I'm sorry. Let's dive in.
