While speaking with Collider, Kevin Feige confirms that Peter Parker will be in his high school years for his upcoming second reboot and debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
What might this mean for Spidey? No telling yet. With all the speculation on who might play MJ, they may (note I said ‘may’) instead focus on Liz & Betty. What makes me think this? Because Feige says that a lot of his favorite Spider-arcs are from when Peter was in high school. Knowing what a fan he is of the Stan Lee & Steve Ditko Doctor Strange nudges me towards thinking he’s talking about the Stan Lee & Steve Ditko era here as well rather than the messy Ultimate universe.
But then Marvel also decided to go with Scott Lang, a decades dead Janet and a sexagenarian Hank Pym, so what the Hell do I know?
Thanks to PunyParker for the heads-up!
–George Berryman! (Who thinks the sexagenarian line is really funny since it’s Michael Douglas playing Hank!)
