‘Spider-Man’ reboot writers talk Peter Parker, geek humor as they are ‘excited’

While promoting the reboot of Vacation, writer-directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein spoke about the script for the upcoming reboot of  Spider-Man.

Jon Watts (Cop Car) will handle the directing and keep the witty and funny Spidey according to a new interview to NPR,

Daley and Goldstein confirmed they’d be writing the new Spider-Man:

Daley: We can finally acknowledge that.

Goldstein: We’ve been saying no comment for the last week.

Daley: This is the first time that we can say that we are writing it.

Goldstein: We’re thrilled.

Spiderman1967 title cardDaley also divulged a bit more about the kind of Spidey we can expect to see in the coming reboot: “He’s a sharp kid and witty and kind of deals with the fact that he’s an outcast and a geek through humor. It is sort of the safety net for geeks like us, so I think we can totally relate to where he’s coming from. As well as the superpowers, which we also have.”

Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man, will be emphasizing the character’s sense of humor. Marvel head Kevin Feige hinted as much earlier this year: “We’re very excited about any number of things about Spidey and his standalone adventures. Not the least of which being the notion of his sense of humor. That when he puts that mask on in the comics, he has a nonstop wit that is almost as troublesome to the bad guys he’s fighting as his webs and agility.”

The Spider-Man standalone film opens in theaters on July 28, 2017.
