We’ve had a few Spidermen on screen and yeah, we get it, guy gets bit, uncle dies, responsibility and what not. Come on, even people who aren’t associated with the movies/comics knows the old (stale) tale! Hopefully Marvel spices the character up a bit now that they’re given a second chan- UH, no, a THIRD chance!
“Dear Marvel, we wanna see a new origin on screen. Actually no.. do what you did with The Incredible Hulk and don’t spend half the film showing the characters origins… throw the audience straight into their troublesome world. With this annoying clean slate I hope you use it wisely”
I could walk down the street and ask strangers, ‘who is Spiderman?’ and pretty much anyone and everyone could give me a detailed synopsis! There’s so many Spidermen/women/animals/things in the Spiderverse so come on Marvel, use a different one… or make one up for the big screen by implementing not so familiar aspects from the comics.
Here’s my favourite ideas:
Miles Morales Spiderman
Get rid of Peter Parker entirely and bring in someone relatively fresh like Miles Morales. A young character in which Ironman and Captain America can play ‘big brother’ to (especially for Civil War).
I would love a cool-looking detective style Spiderman wouldn’t you? We’ve seen enough of the spangled outfit for one decade… Make the character more serious maybe?
Spiderman 2099 (no, not the time era, just the character)
First of all, I love the suit. This idea will probably never happen but I like it so yeah. Have Spidey as some sort of character from another world. Then you can implement him into Guardians of the Galaxy which in turn introduces the venom symbiote. Just my idea.
Last idea: Spider-Ham. Nah I’m just kidding. On a serious note, I don’t mind what sort of Spidey they choose as long as it’s not the same old character with the same old back story. They have a golden opportunity to spice things up and make the character more engaging. Implement different aspects from the comics, change his name, background, suit, ANYTHING!
