Marc Webb Talks Amazing Spider-Man
The Avengers is almost out, which means focus can now be shifted to some of the other super movies that have taken a backseat recently. Marc Webb is still out and about talking about Spider-Man, and MTV Splashpage got a few very interesting bits of information about the new origin for one Peter Parker. Spidey fanboys go ahead and fire up the outrage.
Webb started off by saying that the disappearance of Parker’s parents will have a very large role in the new origin story. The mystery of their disappearance may take up more than one movie.
I wanted to give the audience something new, so that started off with getting underneath the parents’ story, which will unfold over probably a few movies. We don’t totally wrap up that story in this first movie. It’s sort of an ongoing mystery. That was something that was interesting to me.
If that threw you for a loop, Webb knows fans are very hostile to changes. He said that there were “obligations to the canon, in terms of Uncle Ben and the spider-bite, but the conditions under which those things happen are very different.“
Webb also told MTV that there would be no wrestling match in this movie. He states that Spider-Man is evolving in a different way, it will focus more on the emotion and Uncle Ben’s death transforming Peter Parker.
We saw from the earliest trailers that this go around will see Peter getting bit on the hand by the spider. Webb commented on said spider-bite by saying “He’s bitten by a spider, but maybe it’s not a radioactive spider. Or maybe it is! You’ll have to see.“
Overall, this seems to be a big departure from what we’re used to in Spider-Man films, and it may end up working for the best. Like Webb said, we’ll have to wait and see. Wrapping up, Webb talked about what the basic element of the story he was trying to explore was:
There are elements that we were very conscious of, but it all emanated from [the idea of] this kid who got left behind by his parents many, many years before. I thought that was interesting enough for me to explore.”
