Spider-Man's Appearance in Captain America: Civil War
Spider-Man's Role in the MCU
If released in the right way, Spider-Man could have his own adventures without effecting the other Marvel films. If possible, Marvel could release their planned Phase 3 films; while Sony deals with anything pertaining to Spider-Man and have those films be released in their own time. All in all, it would be a major win for the Superhero genre. Aside from a business standpoint, Spider-Man would indeed represent the street heroes for Marvel on the silver screen; which only gives another environment for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to establish. Whether you look at it from a business standpoint or one pertaining to the overall franchise, I think it can be safely said that Spider-Man has a big role to play in the MCU.

No More Amazing Spider-Man
In my opinion, the reason why people hated The Amazing Series was because it was not a part of Marvel Studios. People wanted Spider-Man to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so badly, that many were willing to shrug these movies off until they got what they wanted. While everyone is entitled to their opinion, I feel that many (be it journalist, critics or moviegoers) tarnished these films not because of their quality, but because it was not the film(s) that they wanted to see. If this is true, then I believe that this mentality is down right disgusting and it just shows how immature the majority can be some times. Now it seems that the only people who lost in this change were the filmmakers and everyone apart of The Amazing Spider-Man films.
That being said, I do want to say that I have no problem with Spider-Man being a part of Marvel Studios. While I would have liked The Amazing Spider-Man to transition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I understand the studio's reasoning to start fresh with the character. So in this case, I have decided to look as the Amazing Series as its own thing. Much like Burton's Batman, I feel that I can look back The Amazing Spider-Man as two movies that stand on their own (despite that The Amazing story was not finished). Nevertheless if the new Spider-Man film turns out to be a great, then you will hear no complaints from me as I will gladly put it among the other fantastic movies in this superhero series.
