‘Spiderman’ Update: Writers Promise No  Origin Story, No Spidey Emo Dance; Casting Rumors Rife

We are not going to have to sit through another edition of Peter Parker getting bit by a radioactive spider, screenwriters of Marvels upcoming “Spiderman” reboot have promised. Read on to find out more web slinger information.

In conversation with USA Todayscreenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (“Horrible Bosses,” “Vacation”) have promised that the Tom Holland-“Spiderman” vehicle will focus more on the heroes journey.


“We want to sort of tell that story and the fact that getting powers and becoming Spider-Man doesn’t solve your problems,” Daley explained.

Thankfully, the duo have confirmed that they are also going to skip the infamous Sam Raimi ‘Spidey emo dance’ from “Spiderman 3”, although Daley did jokingly confess to “loving it.”

This news follows in the wake of Latino Review’s reveal of the cast from the movie. The rumor, which has Rachel Fox as ‘Mary Jane Watson, Hugh Laurie as ‘J. Jonah Jameson’ and Forrest Whitaker as ‘Robbie Robertson’, should probably be ingested with a pinch of salt. Since the writers have only just started writing the story, it is unlikely that Marvel is going to rush into premature casting decisions at this point.

Castings that are confirmed at this point are Holland as the wall-crawler himself and Marissa Tomei as ‘Aunt May.’ As we have reported, the upcoming movie will likely take a comedic tone and is supposed to have a John Hughes feel to it. It will also likely be mostly set in a high-school. It will feature a “geeky, outcast kid experiencing the wish fulfillment and alienation of having super powers.”

The all-new “Spider-Man” movie is currently slated to release on July 28, 2017, and production are scheduled to start next year.
