With great power comes great social media response-ability.
After learning that Tom Holland will be Marvel's new Peter Parker, Twitter exploded with commentary about the casting decision. Marvel and Sony also announced that Jon Watts will direct the next "Spider-Man" film, scheduled for release in 2017.
Here are some of the best/angriest/"meh"-iest Twitter reactions:
I like the idea of #SpiderMan being more kid like. So far we've seen him as a young adult trying to act like a kid and it just rubs wrong.

At the rate that #SpiderMan is getting younger every film, Peter Parker will be a fetus by the time Avengers Infinity Wars is released.

Still think @marvel blew it; we didn't need another Parker. Shoulda brought on Miles for the film. No offense to the gifted Tom Holland.

In the UK today, there is a 35% chance that any boy born today will grow up to play Spider-Man.

For a second I thought Tom Hollander had been cast as Spider-Man and got all excited. Come on, admit it, it'd be amazing. #tomholland
