In a press release Kevin Feige not only confirms that the web-slinger was Peter Parker, but that the superhero will be a teenager in high school.
[dropcap size=small]W[/dropcap]ith most of the Marvel Comic’s rights being owned by several different studios, the chance of getting the likes of Spider-Man (owned by Sony) and the Avengers (owned by Disney) to ever come together in perfect harmony and make a movie would be unbelievable. Well it’s happening. The deal for Spider-Man to be brought into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a go. Spider-Man will make his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War that starts filming soon, and will have his own solo film that will be out summer 2017.
Producer and mastermind of everything that happens in the MCU, Kevin Feige, talked about the web-slinger and put some questions to bed at a press release for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Like weather or not Marvel Studios would be using Petter Parker or Miles Morales as the alter ego of Spider-Man, and how old will he be?
Its hard enough to be a teenager, now add that to the fact you have super-human-like powers and patrol the streets in tights and a mask. Feige explains why he felt the web-head should be younger and in high school, he had this to say:
“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.”
“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.”
Feige who is producing the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie out May 6, 2016, will also be producing the stand-alone Spider-Man movie that hit theaters July 28, 2017.
