In an interview at the Avengers: Age of Ultron press junket with Crave Online, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was asked about Peter Parker’s origin story for the upcoming reboot of the character.
Here’s what Fiege had to say:
“In Spider-Man’s very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it’s been, thirteen years for us, we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics. It will not be an origin story. But, with great power comes great responsibility. It is inherent to who his character is. But we want to reveal it in different ways and spend much more time focusing on this young high school kid in the MCU dealing with his powers. There is a young kid [already] running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU, you just don’t know it yet,”
Now the discussion went on to the costume design of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and his infamous comedic side we haven’t really seen in the films, well Feige had something to say about that as well.
“Bothering the criminals with banter as much as with his powers. That’s something that I think we’re excited to explore.I mean look, I was more involved in the Raimi ones, and think they did a very good job. But that being said, we’ve already designed the costume, which is different than any of the ones that have come before. And yet ours is classic Spidey, as I think you’ll see.”
