    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 explained.
