With Spider-man set to make his big debut in Captain America: Civil War, many are wondering how he’ll fit in and what role he’ll play in the overall MCU.
Well Jon Watts, the man who’s set to direct the standalone Spidey movie, has been talking a little about that and how he got the directing gig for arguably Marvel’s biggest hero: “I’m not really sure what happened. I had never been to Sundance before. I was nervous because that was the first time we were showing [Cop Car, his latest movie] to an actual crowd… [Marvel] got to see ‘Cop Car’ and they really liked it…
“Now, I’ve got to make a slightly more expensive version. It’s an opportunity to just have a much bigger canvas instead of just scrapping together any story you can.”
He also talked about young actor Tom Holland, who’ll be playing Spider-man/Peter Parker and confirmed that he is working with the Russo brothers on Civil War and making sure Spidey fits in naturally: “[Tom] can be a real high school student. That’s why people love Spider-Man. He’s the most grounded, relatable of superheroes. And Tom can really do that. He captures that. And he can do a standing back-flip. He’s perfect.”
And on Civil War: “It’s a big universe, so everyone sort of works with each other to make sure that there’s continuity and that it all fits together. It’s really exciting actually. We’re just getting started, working on the script and all that, but it’s going to be a great process .”
We’re soooooo excited to see Captain America: Civil War when it hits on May 6th, 2016.
