We’ve got to say that, with every passing day, we get more and more excited to see something of the MCU’s Spider-man who’ll be first seen in Captain America: Civil War.
And now the directors, Joe and Anthony Russo have taken to talking about your friendly neighbourhood Spider-man: “It was very important to us that we go younger with the character because what we love about Spider-Man is that he’s still a high school student. That’s a part of his vulnerability and it’s what makes him special in the Marvel Universe; he’s very unique,” says Anthony.
“We wanted to play to that aspect of the character. We also wanted to think about ‘Who is Spider-Man today?’ A lot of times, when you get interpretations of Spider-Man, they’re very nostalgic to the origins of the character… We wanted to think about who is Spider-Man today if he’s living in Queens, what’s the texture of his life like, what’s the texture of his relationship with his aunt who lives with him. How can we make the relationship and character very contemporary? That’s our goal with the character.”
So, that’s why we have the younger Spidey in the MCU. Does this work for you all? Let us know your thoughts, folks.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and more, “Captain America: Civil War” opens on May 6, 2016.
