After what seemed like an eternity since the big announcement of Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe (with a little help of Sony) last year, the two studios have found their new Peter Parker aka Spider-Man in young actor Tom Holland! Not only that, but they hired director Jon Watts to direct the next Spider-Man reboot!
We will be expecting Tom Holland’s Spider-Man share the same screen as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and Hulk (that’s if the contracts of the actors don’t expire before this happens). Marvel’s favorite wall-crawler will also be getting a solo film as well. No official title yet.
I’ve never seen Tom Holland in anything before. Judging by his look and age, they’re obviously keeping Peter Parker in High School…..again. If we are to see Peter Parker in Captain America Civil War, then should we expect him to reveal his secret identity to the world like he does in the comic series? Also, in Civil War, wasn’t Spider-Man already a seasoned hero in New York? I need to read that series again, but I do remember him taking off his mask and saying “My name is Peter Parker. And I’ve been Spider-Man since I was fifteen years old.” Tom Holland is nineteen years old, but I’m sure Peter Parker will be sixteen or seventeen.
Maybe having Spider-Man still in High School would explain his “absence” in The Avengers. Maybe the aftermath of the first Avengers film is what inspired Peter Parker to become Spider-Man after getting bit by the radioactive spider.
And another question that has us wondering: Will the Spider-Man solo film be another origin story? PLEASE NO! I’m pretty sure Sony and Marvel know by now that we are sick of seeing Uncle Ben getting killed!
Who knows what Marvel and Sony have in store for Spider-Man! Regardless of all the questions we have, we will just have to wait and see. AND PLEASE PUT CARNAGE IN A MOVIE ALREADY!
So what do you think? Do you agree with Spider-Man still being a teenager in High School? What do you think of Tom Holland? Were you hoping for a Miles Morales Spider-Man? Let’s discuss.
