Some Marvel Spider-Man Movie News Shoots Out

by Damian Seeto


Marvel’s Spider-Man movie due out in 2017 has now shortlisted a few directors that could helm the project. We also get small new details of the plot.

According to a report from Deadline, six directors are now in consideration to helm the Marvel Spider-Man movie. The directors are: Jonathan Levine (50/50), Ted Melfi (St. Vincent), Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect), John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation), and Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite).

That’s not all of the amazing new news about the Marvel Spider-Man movie. Deadline also says they plan for the movie franchise to cover each year of Peter Parker’s high school life. We’re talking three to four more Spider-Man movies. They are also wanting to make the film have the same type of humor as a John Hughes. It will also be a “coming of age” tale.

The best thing about this Marvel Spider-Man movie is the fact that Peter Parker has already been bitten by the radioactive spider. We don’t have to sit through yet another origin story. Hopefully Uncle Ben is already dead too. We’ve seen this done so many other times – people know the story already.

Marvel’s Spider-Man movie is out in 2017, but we will see the character earlier than that. He will be swinging to his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War next year.
