Spider-man Will Be Peter Parker In High School
Earlier Today, Collider confirmed that when Spider-Man is introduced into the Captain America Civil War film, he will definitely be Peter Parker. The timeframe for which meet Peter Parker, has also been confirmed as his early high school days. The announcement was made by Kevin Feige during the press tour for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Feige told Collider,
“In terms of the age of an actor we’ll eventually to cast, I don’t know. In terms of the age of what we believe Peter Parker is, I’d say 15-16 is right.”
Feige also went on to say,
“We want to play with Spider-Man in the high school years because frankly there’ve been five Spider-Man films and the amazing thing about it is, even though there’ve been five Spider-Man films, there are so many things from the comics that haven’t been done yet. Not just characters or villains or supporting characters, but sides to his character. The most obvious being the ‘young, doesn’t quite fit in’ kid before his powers, and then the fella that puts on a mask and swings around and fights bad guys and doesn’t shut up, which is something we want to play with and we’re excited about.”
This new confirmation validates every reports that he would be younger and in high school. Along with debunking the rumor that the new Spider-Man would also be rebooted as Miles Morales.
Doug Belgrad added,
“Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios share a love for the characters in the Spider-Man universe and have a long, successful history of working together,” said Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group in the original press release announcing their partnership with Marvel. “This new level of collaboration is the perfect way to take Peter Parker’s story into the future.”
