"Spider-Man" Movie Updates



Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige recently provided updates regarding the first Marvel Studios/Sony Entertainment collaborative "Spider-Man" solo feature, reealing which 'Spider-Man' through all his many Marvel Comics characterizations, will be realized for live action on the big screen, opening July 28, 2017:

"...and then the fella' that puts on a mask and swings around and fights bad guys and doesn’t shut up, which is something we want to play with and we’re excited about.


"I think it was midway through the first film that he graduated high school. At the beginning of the second Marc Webb film, he graduated high school...



"And 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 terms of the age of an actor we’ll eventually to cast, I don’t know. 


"In terms of the age of what we believe Peter Parker is, I’d say 15-16 is right..."
