imageJohn Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are currently doing the press rounds for their new film, Vacation, and they recently appeared on a Podcast where they talked about their plans for Spider-Man. The first thing that Goldstein said was this will not be an origin story.

“I think that everybody feels like you know he got bit by a spider and you know Uncle Ben died, and we probably don’t need to revisit that.”

Daley went on to say that a Spider-Man story with a strong focus on his high school life gives them an window to do something different.

“We have a meeting set up at the end of the week just to go over the logistics and to look at his suit, which will be fun. But we’re so pumped about it and Marvel seems to be doing everything right; we’re both such huge fans of the stuff they’re putting out. I think it’ll be a fun departure from the Peter Parker you’ve seen, where now he is truly a kid and I think the stakes are increased in that his struggle through high school is very real and isn’t just a sort of side note; it matters now.”

Tom Holland is by far the youngest actor to play Spider-Man, which Goldstein explained that his youth and awkwardness are key to Peter Parker.

“We want to explore the fact that just because you get superpowers doesn’t make you into a really sophisticated, successful adult. He’s still a kid and he’s clumsy and he’s a geek and he’s a bit of an outcast, and in many ways the superpowers amplify that and exacerbate his trying to fit in.”

Daley added that the arrival of superpowers further complicates Peter Parker’s life.

“He has one more secret that he has to sort of keep from the world, one more burden that he’s dealing with above all the other crap that he’s dealing with at school. So it’s gonna be fun, and we can relate to that Peter Parker character—we’re geeky guys that weren’t popular in school ourselves.”
