New version of ‘Spider-Man’ coming in ‘Civil War’

Speaking in China, Captain America: Civil War directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, spoke about their role and what fans can expect in upcoming Marvel films.

One area of interest is the addition of Spider-Man for fans, before taking on another solo film. Fans learned that the new Spider-Man will be different from the previous portrayed by Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

“This is a completely new version of Spider-Man that’s introduced in Civil War,” answered Anthony Russo in the clip, posted by Weeping Angel (via Comic Book Movie)

That’s a part of his vulnerability and it’s what makes him special in the Marvel Universe; he’s very unique.”

Russo continued: “We wanted to play to that aspect of the character. We also wanted to think about ‘Who is Spider-Man today?’ A lot of times when you get interpretations of Spider-Man, they’re very nostalgic to the origins of the character. Sometimes there’s an old-fashioned patina to the tone of who Spider-Man is. We wanted to think about who is Spider-Man today if he’s living in Queens, what’s the texture of his life like, what’s the texture of his relationship with his aunt who lives with him. How can we make the relationship and character very contemporary? That’s our goal with the character.”

The mention of Aunt May, who’ll be played by Marisa Tomei, seems to confirm she, too, will be introduced in Civil War alongside Tom Holland’s Spidey.
