It has been promised that there will be no retelling of Spider-Man's origin once he joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only is this a good thing because audiences don't need to see Uncle Ben die yet again, but hopefully it will lead to more humor from the hero. Toby Maguire's Spidey spent so much time mourning over loved ones that there was very little time left over for levity. Andrew Garfield always came off more arrogant and cocky that funny in the role, so the comedy didn't really work for me in his films. Hopefully the humorous side of Spider-Man is something that will finally be realized.
