It's been a few months now since the exciting announcement that Spider-Man would finally be making his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it is unsurprising that Kevin Feige has started to tease fans about what's to come over the next little while.
When asked by IGN how this new take on Spidey would be different from what has come before, Feige said: "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 are so many things that are integral to his character in the comics that haven't been explored yet. That's what most exciting."
He continues: "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."
Feige says fans of the Marvel Wall-Crawler should expect more of his comic book comedy this time around. "When he puts that mask on, in the comics, he has a non-stop wit that's almost as troubling to the bad guys he fights as his webs and agility. We feel we haven't really seen that yet."
Does this mean we're going to see a third take on the character's origin story? It doesn't sound like it, as Feige concluded the interview with: "I think people are very familiar with that origin."
Well, one thing is for sure, it sounds as though the powers that be at Marvel Studios are making sure to do their homework to ensure that we don't end up with another Amazing Spider-Man and that, to us, is a very good thing!
