MCU Spiderman will be a teenager!

Kevin Feige has revealed new information about Marvel’s plans for Spider-Man when the character makes its debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron, the producer confirmed to Collider that he wants to explore the character of Peter Parker as a 15- or 16-year-old high school student.

“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 there are so many things from the comics that haven’t been done yet,” he said.

“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.”

Speaking about the direction the Marvel Spider-Man storyline will take, Feige continued to say that the superhero’s youth establishes him as a foil to the existing Marvel heroes.

“In some of my favourite Spider-Man arcs and Spider-Man stories, he’s in high school for a lot of it,” the Marvel Studios president added. “We want to explore that. That also makes him very, very different from any of our other characters in the MCU, which is something else we want to explore: how unique he is when now put against all these other characters.”

The new Spider-Man is expected to make his debut in Captain America: Civil War, while the superhero’s first solo Marvel film is currently due for release on July 28, 2017.
