Spiderman Homecoming will follow the same path pursued by Harry Potter series.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has intention of keeping Peter Parker in high school throughout the planned sequels of Spiderman. Fiege has admitted that he is taking the format of the Harry Potter franchise particularly with regards to students’ life in high school.
“Should we be able to make more after that? Sure … it was sort of how do we do a journey for Peter not dissimilar for what the students of Hogwarts would go through each of their years, which was one of the early ideas we had for the movies,” Feige told Collider.
Tom Holland said audience will see in Homecoming a 15-year-old kid dealing with everyday problems that average teens have. In the previous Spiderman movies, viewers have seen Peter living his post-high school life. Holland will be portraying Spiderman/Peter Parker.
Movie Pilot agreed that Feige’s idea would work for the first two sequels of Holland-starred Spiderman. However, the site noted that Holland’s character needs to move on to college in the third film. This is to keep up with the MCU timeline. The 2017’s Spiderman Homecoming will features a 16-year-old Peter in his sophomore year in high school. A sequel will follow in 2019, in which Peter will be 18-year-old. The hacking of Sony files in 2014 revealed that Marvel and Sony were planning to release a solo Spiderman film every two years. Spiderman will also appear in other MCU movies such Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2.
Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 will hit theaters in 2018, while the part 2 has a release date of May 3, 2019.
Actor Michael Keaton has been confirmed to play villain in the Spiderman Homecoming movie. Robert Downey Jr. will also appear in the Spiderman reboot. Zendaya has also been cast to play the role of Michelle. Marisa Tomei will reprise her role in Captain America: Civil War as Peter’s Aunt May.
