Obviously, when the Marvel/Sony deal was announced, everyone knew that there were going to be certain changes made to the character. People weren’t sure if Andrew Garfield was going to remain as Spider-Man and they weren’t even sure if Spider-Man was going to be Peter Parker.
Fast forward to now and Spider-Man still is Peter Parker but is going to be played by Tom Holland.
In a recent sit down with The LA Times, Feige offered a little insight into what is going to be different about the web slinger this time around:
“You look at the early comic books of Spider-Man and what was so great about what Stan Lee and Steve Ditko did was they said what if one of the most powerful heroes we have is a high school kid who also has to do homework and isn’t a billionaire, or isn’t a genius scientist, or isn’t a trained assassin, or isn’t another scientist who had an accident but is a kid?” Feige explained.
Feige then pointed out how Spider-Man will be able to interact with the larger Marvel Universe – rather than just his own:
“The one thing that hasn’t been able to be explored in the other five movies is his relationship to the broader Marvel Universe and that’s something that was exciting to us. To go back to those Stan Lee, Steve Ditko origin tales of having him be younger and that dichotomy with dealing with the rest, and also in Brian Michael Bendis’ Ultimate Spider-Man. That the younger he was, the more truer he was to the original Spider-Man comic book stories and also the more unique and different he would be in comparison to the other Marvel heroes.”
