I love it!
I love it! It looks great.
I am so psyched. As a kid I ate, drank, and breathed Marvel comics. Then for years I saw all my childhood heros turned into lame jokes (Remember The Incredible Hulk? Thor? Captain America? I’m sure there are many more truly terrible movies).
Now finally I see Hollywood desperate for “content” finally recognizing the comics industry as a creative source for material that is more ‘compatible’ with movies than fictional prose. (ie: Comics are already presented visually and have to deal with limitations on the amount of material that can be presented, very similar to movies).
Finally I am seeing movies made that RESPECT the original works… X-Men was a wonderful adaptation. Spider-Man looks great! Rumors of Ghost Rider, Iron-Man, Daredevil…
What have I left out?

I am not so certain that they are desperate for content, it is more like one or two generations have grown up, and not abandonded comics when they became adults.
In the Seventies, comics were the domain of kids and Sci-Fi geeks. In the 2K’s I find more people my age are reading and buying comics. (And all of Spec Fic in general)
And since we grew up with Star Wars and such, we have certain demands about the movies we see. And lets be honest we vote by seeing the movies. Batman got many votes, and every company wants the next Batman
