Spider-Man’s Relationship With MCU To Be Key In Newest Version

July 3rd, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



With Spider-Man set to make his MCU debut in Civil War (now officially confirmed) the question now is how he will be portrayed differently than in the Tobey MacQuire and Andrew Garfield films. Kevin Fiege noted that not only will his youth play a big part in it, but also how he interacts with fellow Marvel heroes will play a big role.

“The one thing that hasn’t been able to be explored in the other five [“Spider-Man”] movies is his relationship to the broader Marvel Universe and that’s something that was exciting to us. To go back to those Stan Lee, Steve Ditko origin tales of having him be younger and that dichotomy with dealing with the rest, and also in Brian Michael Bendis’ “Ultimate Spider-Man.”

That the younger he was, the more truer he was to the original Spider-Man comic book stories and also the more unique and different he would be in comparison to the other Marvel heroes.”

Fiege wouldn’t comment on how much of a role Spider-Man will have in Civil War, but with filming underway, I wouldn’t be surprised if we got some details soon.
