Kevin Feige will take inspiration from 'Harry Potter' if there are sequels to 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' as he wants to show Peter Parker going though all the stages of school
Kevin Feige will take inspiration from 'Harry Potter' if there are sequels to 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'.
In the new movie about the comic book hero, Peter Parker is in high school and Feige is keen to show the character going through all the different stages of school, much like the three children in the 'Harry Potter' films.
He said: "Should we be able to make more after that? Sure. This is sophomore year, is the next one junior year? Is the next one senior year? Is there a summer break between each of those? I don't know what, but it was sort of how do we do a journey for Peter not dissimilar for what the students of Hogwarts would go through each of their years, which was one of the early ideas we had for the movies."
Feige says he's very pleased with what they have done with the movie and is hoping everyone falls in love with the character again.
He told Collider.com: "The first step was reintroduced a new Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Civil War and have people leave the theatre saying, 'I love that Spider-Man. I wanna see more of him.' I think that's happened. The next step is making a great Spider-Man: Homecoming and a great film that showcases Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and makes everybody fall in love with him all over again."
Tom Holland is taking on the role of Spider-Man/Peter Parker and the new film will be out in July 2017.
