Based on what Kevin Feige has said about the film, there are actually quite a few similarities between this film and Ultimate Spider-Man (2012): the film is not an origin story, Peter is in high school, Peter wears the classic Spider-Man costume, the film incorporates new villains, Peter has a non-stop wit as Spider-Man, Peter has awkward interactions with other superheroes, Peter is a street-level hero, and Peter struggles to balance his double life.

Near the beginning of the film, it states that modern day events are happening 8 years after the events in Marvel's Avengers, released in 2012. This led many to believe that the film was set in 2020, and not 2017. However Marvel's Avengers was set in 2008 as phase 1 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe took place in 1 week (with the exception of the first Iron Man film, which takes place six months prior to the second). This places the movie's timeline and Captain America: Civil War at 2016, the very release of Captain America: Civil War. See more »

Oh Spider-Man, we meet again. It's been a long time since we saw tantalizing Tobey Maguire in the suit. Spidey was in need of a comeback- oh wait, I forgot that already happened...Andrew Garfield this one is for you!
Okay but for real, this movie was great. It hit on every truthful aspect of Peter Parker. Geeky high school teen with great angst, a need to prove himself and get the girl he supposedly loves. I would 10/10 recommend it to anyone as one of the greatest Marvel movies every made (it definitely lived up to it's reputation), but what about the greatest Spidey movie every made?
I agree that there has to be major differences between this movie and the other two heart-throb tales because Spider-Man is now official in league with the Avengers. But caught in the crossfires of the Marvel Legacy, was the movie even about Peter Parker? I mean, did they even have to try to make it about him? Everybody already knew the story so why bother retelling it? I believe a better title for the movie may have been Iron Man 4-Tony Stark's Coming of Age.
The Marvel makers seemed to have realized that they already created a vast empire so adding in Peter Parker shouldn't be difficult at all; if we remember to keep the main stars close behind...
I may still be a little too attached to the previous web of spidey movies to believe that Spider-Man is now part of something more than just himself, but it may have been nice to stick a little closer to the reality of Spider-Man's true nature. He is a lonely, angsty teen from queens, but he seemed to be still on the back burner to the bigger starts cameo-ed in his own film. Maybe that was the point though...right?
