Spider-movie reboot writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein spoke with Vulture recently to promote their new movie, the National Lampoon’s Vacation reboot. During their conversation, they dropped a wee bit of Spidey info – including the fact that Spidey’s Captain America: Civil War cameo has already been filmed.
Daley and Goldstein will have to contend with special effects of a different sort over the next few months, as they’ve been drafted to write Marvel’s new Spider-Man reboot. That’s still in the early stages, as Goldstein says they’re going in to Marvel this weekend to look at footage of Tom Holland’s cameo as Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War. “We hear good things,” he said. “We might even get to look at the Spidey suit, which is exciting.” Forget any rumored cast lists that have been floating around the web, however: “We’ve discussed certain characters,” said Daley, “but nothing is certain yet, for sure.”
“I think that everybody feels like you know he got bit by a spider and you know Uncle Ben died, and we probably don’t need to revisit that.”
Daley & Goldstein did have more to say about working on Spider-Man and working for Marvel, as well as working with/for Kevin Feige. (video below)
In other Spidey news, other sites are running with the clickbait casting & costume news posted on Latino Review a couple of days ago. Casting all the parts for a script not-yet written. Found by a dude on Twitter, who saw it on Reddit. Heh.
Daley & Goldstein’s expanded Spidey & Marvel comments start at 19:45 in the video below. At one point the interviewer, Andy Greenwald, claims that Spider-Man’s rogues gallery has never been “super terrific.” Feel free to leave him views to the contrary in the video’s YouTube comments. Heh.
