Hollywood director and film-maker Jon Watts said, he has been
pretty excited to bring up and show the diversity of superhero
characters in his upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.
"Well, I can talk about why I was excited about it. First of
all, it being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe just immediately
opened up the doors to so many possibilities" Said Watts.
"Spider-Man interacting with the other people in that universe
and also just to be able to explore a different side of the Marvel
Universe. I was really excited about that because the other movies
have shown what I described as the Penthouse level of the Marvel
world." The director added.
Watts continued, "What it's like to be Thor, Iron Man, you know,
a billionaire playboy and all of that stuff. But what's great about
Spider-Man is that he's a regular kid and so by showing his story
you also get to show what the ground level is like in a world where
The Avengers exist."
Watts said he is thrilled to show the regular life of Spider-Man
as a kid in a whole new environment of a high school.
"So that was very exciting, but also just Tom. By having Peter
Parker be a kid that also opens up, I think, a lot of possibilities
that are only really explored at the beginning of the other two
versions of the films." Added Watts.
"In the Raimi one he's only in high school for like ten minutes,
but I wanted to make a high school movie already so the opportunity
to do it with Spider-Man was pretty exciting." The director
