Spider-Man fans have been waiting with baited breath for news on how the Marvel Cinematic Universe will shape the iconic character and Kevin Feige has finally coughed up an interesting tidbit.

The Marvel Studios president told IGN how Spidey relates to Batman and explained how unexplored aspects of Spider-Man's personality from the comics will be injected into the new movies. Feige told interviewers that:

It's a testament to his character that there have been five movies made already over the last, however long it's been, 13 years, and yet, there's so many things that are integral to his character in the comics that haven't been explored yet. That's what most exciting

He then went onto compare the evolution of Batman's personality to the pathway that Spider-Man will soon be treading. Feige explained:

Batman was the same way; there had been four Batman movies, and then Batman Begins was able to do something unique and tap into something that hadn't been seen before in the movies. It's a similar thing, obviously tonally completely different from Batman, but we're very excited about any number of things about Spidey and his standalone adventures

But, probably the most interesting thing to longstanding fans of the Spider-Man comics will be the fact that Spidey's firecracker wit will finally be done justice on the big screen. Feige told IGN that:

When he puts that mask on, in the comics, he has a non-stop wit that is almost as troubling to the bad guys he fights as his webs and agility. We feel we haven't really seen that yet

Let's hope Spider-Man can do better than the (admittedly pretty funny) dad jokes of days gone by like the gem below:
