Marvel Studios' SPIDER-MAN Movie Will be "A Very Different Type of Hero" Not Seen in Previous Spidey Films

Is there any other studio executive who gets quoted more than Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige? The short answer has to be no.

Feige is the person who knows all of the connection points of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he is pretty much the editor-in-chief of the MCU. Just like how the comic book universe has its own editor-in-chief to maintain control throughout all the different comic series and crossover comic book mini-series events.

While doing press interviews for ANT-MAN, Feige has almost been asked more about the next SPIDER-MAN movie than he has been asked about ANT-MAN. This is what happens when the announcement that actor Tom Holland has been cast as Spider-Man and Jon Watts announced as the director just last week.

The Marvel Studios produced SPIDER-MAN movie will be "a very different type of hero" that hasn't been seen in previous Spidey films according to Feige, via Zap2It.

"The biggest thing... is that it takes place in [the MCU]. It’s the first time that you’ll be able to see Spider-Man like he was in the comics, as a very different type of hero when compared to the other heroes in the universe. Up until this point in the other Spidey films – some of which are some of the best superhero movies ever made – he was the only hero, and now he’s not. Now he’s a kid in Queens with these powers and has other [superheroes] to look to. 
"Does he want to be like these other characters? Does he want nothing to do with these other characters? How does that impact his experience, being this grounded but super powerful hero? Those are all the things that Stan Lee and Steve Ditko played with in the first 10 years of his comics, and that now we can play with for the first time in a movie."

Add this info to Feige's other comment on how the next SPIDER-MAN movie will be inspired by John Hughes' comic-of-age films and this movie sounds better with every new tidbit teased about it.

The still untitled SPIDER-MAN movie releases on July 28, 2017.
