Marvel will release a stand-alone Spider-Man movie on July 28, 2017, but before then, it’s expected he’ll appear in next year’s Captain America: Civil War. As of right now, we don’t know who will be portraying the character, but thanks to Kevin Feige, we do know a bit more about what we can expect from the upcoming film.
Given that there have been five Spider-Man movies over the past thirteen years, fans have been curious as to if the next movie would be yet another origin story. With rumors that Spider-Man is set to debut in Civil War, it seemed as though Marvel would be foregoing the origin story in his solo film. While he didn’t confirm Spidey appearing in Civil War, Kevin Feige did confirm that his solo movie will not be an origin story.
Speaking to Crave Online, Feige had this to say:
“It will not be an origin story,“ Feige continued. “But, with great power comes great responsibility. It is inherent to who his character is. But 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.”
“There is a young kid [already] running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU, you just don’t know it yet,“ he said, laughing.
He also went on to discuss how, back in October when they were announcing the Phase Three line-up, he’d already known about Spider-Man but didn’t want to announce anything until it was a done deal. Feige then goes on to tell Crave Online that they’ve already designed the new Spider-Man suit.
When asked about whether his compliments about “the look of Spider-Man” meant he favored any of the earlier iterations of the superhero’s costume, Kevin Feige responded, “Well, yeah, I mean look, I was more involved in the Raimi ones, and think they did a very good job. But that being said, we’ve already designed the costume, which is different than any of the ones that have come before. And yet ours is classic Spidey, as I think you’ll see.”
Marvel’s Spider-Man will be released on July 28, 2017.
