More Spiderman Details

Kevin Feige spoke out today about some of the upcoming "Spiderman" movie details. I have to admit, some of the things he had to say about the highly anticipated movie was a little bit surprising. How surprising? Well, what if I told you that "Spiderman" is going to be a high school soap opera?

“It’s the soap opera in high school, and those supporting characters, that are interesting,” said Feige. “Just as we hadn’t seen a heist movie in a long time, or a shrinking movie in a long time, we haven’t seen a John Hughes movie in a long time. Not that we can make a John Hughes movie - only John Hughes could - but we’re inspired by him, and merging that with the superhero genre in a way we haven’t done before excites us.”

Yep, I am a little stunned by that too. A high school soap opera mixed with the superhero movie? Interesting, definitely interesting. I am not saying I hate the idea, because it could be good. Feige has done some good things playing genres. I mean "Captain America: The Winter Solider" was more of a political thriller than anything else. It also seems that "Ant-Man" will be a heist movie more than anything else. But it seems that these movies won't loose their superhero status, or what makes superheroes movies work. I also like that Feige mentioned that the villain in the movie will be someone we haven't seen yet. It makes sense, Spiderman has a huge rogues gallery. There are lots of villains they could look at.

"Right now we’re interested in seeing villains we haven’t seen before.”

So don't expect Doc Ock, or Green Goblin. Expect Vulture, or Chameleon, or Scorpion, or Shocker, or Hydro-Man or Mysterio or even Carnage. That's cool, lots of great villains to look at and lots of great storylines to use as well.

So, some interesting ideas tonight, what do you guys think?
