“There is a young kid running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU, you just don’t know it yet,” says Kevin Feige.
So why are we getting a young high school Peter Parker :-/
to relive his high school life again
That's the problem...."again"
Well Peter is usually pretty young. Or mid-twenties at his oldest. Peter's story has always heavily revolved around a boy's coming of age and how he deals with the heavy responsibility placed upon his shoulders as his parent figures guide him along the path of righteousness. Kinda like Superman... @_@ They both never knew their parents and both their father figures last words resonated with them for the rest of their lives and helped them become red and blue spandex wearing media related job working loonies!! Uh... Sorry lost my train of thought. Anyhoo, Peter's story usually revolves around him being young and dealing with growing up. Would be like Batman not dealing with the grief of losing his parents, the character would change dramatically or seize exist. I'm not too crazy about going that route again. Especially if it meant pushing back Black Panther and Captain Marvel aaaaaaaand causing a bunch of last minute changes to Civil War. But hey what are you gonna do.
Spiderman comics ALSO spend a good chunk of his life being out of Highschool and those are the best chunks. The real reason I think they decided to go with a so young(16) actor, assuming that the rumors were true that Marvel favored that kid. Is so they can use him for a looooong time. Which then I won't have a problem with if he can act.
Its also NOT Marvel's Spider-Man...Sony still owns the rights, and still has complete full creative control...The only input Marvel gets is over who is cast, after that they have no say what happens unless they're using him in one of their films
Actually they have nothing but the rights to use him. They don't even have the right to cast. That's why it's rumored marvel is working with Sony on casting. The only real thing marvel is doing is sending over Kevin Feige to help with world building/connecting and making it seem likes it's a marvel movie. Esthetics, tone, humor etc etc. When marvel uses him in one of they're movies, they can use him as they please. Sony doesn't actually have too much say what happens as long as it's a Marvel movie. And vise versa with Sony movies. Feige is only going over because Sony knows they need a hand and they know they need Spider-Man movies produced by them to seem like a straight marvel movie. I could be wrong but I've read enough of these damn stories now.
But then how will audiences know how Spiderman got his powers?! /s
...what's a Spiderman?
One question: Why?!?
...is Marvel being so good to us?
No, why they keep rebooting this IP? Let it rest for a minute.
So it picks up while Parker is in High School but after he has gained his powers and his uncle is killed. Not an origin story.
Lame. I'm sure it's just an excuse to inject the movie with a bunch of teenage melodrama. Can we get a college years version of Spiderman and be done with it? At least it would be slightly more mature and we would get to see J. Jonah Jameson, a cornerstone of any good Spiderman story.
Good we don't need another Spider bite/Uncle Ben death. Have him established as Spider-man and maybe a new villain like Kraven or Mysterio. I don't rlly mind him being in High School either.
