Marvel's Spider-Man reboot is going to have a much younger Peter Parker swinging around the streets of New York City. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently shared some interesting details about the studio's vision and plan for the new Spider-Man.
Talking about the overall setup of the film, Feige revealed that it will definitely not be an origin story. "In Spider-Man's very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it's been – [thirteen] years – for us we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics," Feige told CraveOnline during an interview at a recent press junket for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
"It will not be an origin story," Feige continued. "But, with great power comes great responsibility. It is inherent to who his character is. But we want to reveal it in different ways and spend much more time focusing on this young high school kid in the MCU dealing with his powers."
Teasing that the new Spidey is already active in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe, Feige said, "There is a young kid [already] running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU, you just don't know it yet."
Feige then went on to talk about the look of the new Spider-Man and how it differs from previous versions.
"I was more involved in the Raimi ones [Spider-Man 1,2,3], and think they did a very good job. But that being said, we've already designed the costume, which is different than any of the ones that have come before. And yet ours is classic Spidey, as I think you'll see."
