Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed that Spidey’s next outing won’t be an origins story, and that the character was always a part of their phase 3 plans.
Speaking with Crave Online at a recent “Avengers: Age of Ultron” press junket, the Marvel president explained how the studio plans on re-introducing Peter Parker.
“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,” he said.
“It will not be an origin story.
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.” Feige also revealed that they’ve created a “homemade version” of the Spider-Man costume that people don’t know about, and its already swinging around in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The 41-year-old producer also mentioned that the webslinger was always a part of their phase 3 plans, but couldn’t reveal it to the public along with the lineup of films they announced last October.
“It could have gone either way, and Marvel as you well know doesn’t announce anything officially until it’s set in stone,” he said in a statement.
“We went forward with that Plan A in October, with the Plan B being, if it were to happen with Sony, how it would all shift.” “We’ve been thinking about it as long as we’ve been thinking about phase three.” Several movies have adjusted their release dates due to Spidey’s arrival into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making way for his first movie under the new banner on July 28, 2017.
Apart from his solo outing, the character is rumored to make an appearance in “Captain America: Civil War” on May 6, 2016.
