I really dig this idea, but for the non-pop-culture-informed (me) who is MEW? Campbell would be perfect to make the reboot in-joke. Sort of like Rhodey in IM2. I could see him as Mysterio, being trussed up, his fishbowl broken, and as Spidey makes a quip he says something like: "You're just not the same person anymore" or something like that lol. Idk if I'd have Aunt May die, these films were pretty heavy on death as is--maybe write her out by having her move to Florida or something, but I'd have her go. That way she could come back or do phone call for cameos or whatever. I like the idea of Pete & MJ splitting up, the ending of 3 was ambiguous enough that this is totally plausible. The only thing is I would keep MJ around but have a couple films where she and Pete aren't together. (That said, the idea of a Black Cat arc is great. At the end, I'd have Peter turn back to MJ but she's already with someone). It would read a lot like the DeFalco-era MJ. She and Peter were really good friends, but not romantic--at least not for awhile. We could then have some real Betty/Pete and/or Gwen/Pete romance. They could even flirt with having a Peter/Felicia relationship after 4 where they kept each other in the dark about their secret identities until later.
