Although 26 seems a little old to be playing high school (if that is indeed still the plan), I'm willing to give this guy the benefit of the doubt for now. He does have a Peter Parkery look to him, as long as they can tone down the hair a bit (which I'm sure they will). I'm just glad something is happening on the Spidey movie front, and hopefully it will be good.
I really wish that Marvel was able to have the whole universe tie together though, as they are currently doing with the Avengers stuff (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Cap). It likely won't happen ever, or at least for a long time with rights at Sony and Fox, but it would sure be nice if Marvel (and now Disney) had control over Spidey, the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Daredevil, etc. and could include more cameos or even just expand the shared universe in general. Especially since the majority of them are based out of the same city in the comics.
