Should You Care About the Spider Man 4 Delay?

Yesterday it was announced that "Spiderman 4" is being delayed due to script problems. Just weeks ago, fanboys were up in arms about casting rumors of John Malkovich and Anne Hathaway playing the Vulture and Vultress, so damn, I guess times can change with the flick of a wrist. In light of this delay, Paramount picked up it's hammer and crushed Spider-man's release date of May 6, 2011. Paramount's replacement:  that other marvel superhero project: "Thor."

The interesting here is that there isn't a huge backlash about Spider-Man getting delayed. The mood that I'm feeling is that Spider Man 3 was so disrespectful to comics that the web-heads don't really care. And with Marvel dangling "The Avengers" in front of our faces like the most tasty whoopie pie ever made, how are we supposed to get excited one character? After all, in no time we will have a whole team of them on the screen together battling evil. Sorry Spidey, looks like you can't hand power and responsibility after all.
