There’s some great news, spider-fans. Marvel’s new take on their flagship character is set to begin filming soon, judging by all the info that’s been leaking. Spider-Man is finally ready to swing into the good ol’ MCU. No word yet on when shooting will actually start, but thanks to the NEW Spider Man himself, Tom Holland, we know where it will be shooting. The actor also has some words on why Peter Parker is different from the rest of the heroes in the MCU.
“I have always been a huge fan of Spider-Man, and growing up, I had countless Spider-Man costumes, only two years ago did I go to a fancy dress party dressed as Spider-Man. I had this awesome morph suit where you can put your phone on your chest and spiders would crawl across the costume, it was awesome! He’s always been a big part of my life and a big part of boys’ lives because everybody can relate to him.”
Holland also piped up on why he feels that Spider-Man is unique:
“I think one of the most interesting things about Peter Parker for us is that he’s the only person in the MCU now that has a secret identity, so we all know who everyone else is. I think it’s quite interesting to go back to that hiding behind a mask.”
It’s another factor that brings many questions into play. Like how will the first masked hero get around in this very open universe, and how has SHIELD been monitoring him, and just exactly how does one find a real life radioactive spider? *building web shooters, looking for costume that conceals awkward bulge*
