Spider-Man: Reboot Starring Tom Holland like John Hughes Movie

After the casting news that Tom Holland will play Peter Parker, Marvel head Kevin Fiege disclosed that the new film will place Spider-Man in a high-school setting.

“Spider-Man will be a ‘John Hughes’ movie,” Feige told SlashFilm.

Spidey’s age will set him apart from other Marvel characters. “Some of my favorite Spider-Man arcs and Spider-Man stories, he’s in high school for a lot of it. We want to explore that. That also makes him very, very different from any of our other characters in the MCU, which is something else we want to explore: how unique he is when now put against all these other characters.”

In another interview, with Collider, Feige talked about positioning Parker against the other superheroes.  Holland read against Robert Downey, Jr. in a screen test.  Umpressing all helped him lad the role.  “That was part of it,” Feige said.

The Spidey reboot is likely to feature a comic-book villain who hasn’t been in any of the previous movies. “Right now we’re interested in seeing new villains not seen efore,” Feige told SlashFilm.

Feige said he hired Jon Watts to direct, after meeting with him “four, five, or six times, and each time he had more and more interesting things to say.  At Marvel, it always comes down to ultimately, ‘We can make a movie with this person for two years, we could spend almost every day with this person for two years. Let’s go.’”
