Yeah Paul Dini ALMOST makes up for it. So now I'm like I'm like "Eh, alright, I'll give it a shot.". Now if Spectacular was still going and it was announced that Paul Dini was coming to the team I would die...my heart could not take THAT much good at once... Dini said he wants to redefine Peter Parker and not do Lee/Ditko or Lee/Romita Sr type stuff, so that worries me.

You also don't want to repeat the same old tropes. As much as I love elements of Spider-Man's past, I don't really want to go back in and retell the Gwen Stacy and Green Goblin story in animation just so I can do my take on it. I don't want to redo the first Spider Slayer story. I don't want to redo some of those classic Lee/Romita and Lee/Ditka stories just for the sake of seeing them rendered in animation. For now, I just want to approach Spider-Man with fresh eyes, taking a few things we know about him and just doing a new spin on the concept. I think old-time fans will find what we've done with the character to be pretty good and thoughtful, because we're not out to junk-up Spider-Man. That's not our intent.
Hopefully this new show is GOOD
...although part of me wants it to fail to send a message to Disney.
