Marvel's 'Spider-Man' movie will not be an origin story.

Kevin Feige, the president of the studio, has confirmed that the much-anticipated new movie will work on the assumption that its audience already knows the "specifics" of Peter Parker's life.

He told CraveOnline: "In Spider-Man's very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it's been - [13] years - for us, we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics.

"It will not be an origin story, but with great power comes great responsibility. It is inherent to who his character is. But we want to reveal it in different ways and spend much more time focusing on this young high school kid in the Marvel Comic universe dealing with his powers."

What's more, Kevin revealed the Marvel Spider-Man will wear a distinctly different outfit to previous on-screen incarnations, but also promised it'd be "classic Spidey".

He shared: "We've already designed the costume, which is different than any of the ones that have come before. And yet ours is classic Spidey, as I think you'll see."

Marvel's Spider-Man is expected to make his debut in 'Captain America: Civil War', with a solo movie set for July 2017.
