Jon Watts, director of Sony Pictures' and Marvel Studios forthcoming Spider-Man reboot has confirmed Peter Parker's age and shared some of his idea regarding how the movie's story will unfold.
In an interview with Empire Magazine (via Yahoo!), Watts said, "I love the idea of making a coming-of-age high school movie. We're really going to see Peter Parker in high school and get deeper into that side of it. He's just 15 now."
Watts reiterated that there won't be a Spider-Man origin for a third time saying, "There are only so many times you can kill Uncle Ben."
The untitled Spider-Man reboot movie is all set to release on 28 July, 2017 with Tom Holland playing the new Peter Parker. According to the rumours, the young Spidey is going to fight against a new villain previously unseen on big screen – Kraven the Hunter.
Though there are no details made available regarding the reboot's storyline, the movie is going to be significantly different than previous Spider-Man films including "Spider-Man" (Toby Maguire) and "The Amazing Spider-Man" (Andrew Garfield) franchises.
The new Spidey will be dealing with high school, homework and other teenage problems while living with aunt May (played by Marissa Tomei).
However, before having his own solo movie, Spidey will first appear in "Captain America: Civil War" scheduled to release next year and will eventually become a part of The Avengers.
As reported by Screen Rant, Marvel Studio's president Kevin Feige said: "It will not be an origin story. But, with great power comes great responsibility. It is inherent to who his character is. But we want to reveal it in different ways and spend much more time focusing on this young high school kid in the MCU dealing with his power. There is a young kid running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU, you just don't know it yet."
The reboot is surely going to be fun as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) is reported to appear in the movie and make Spidey a new Iron Spider costume.
