Speaking about Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said one of the early ideas for Spider-Man was not “dissimilar for what the students of Hogwarts would go through each of their years”.

Feige said the first step was to introduce Spider-Man to the MCU in Civl War and have the audience love him, which he felt has 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,” Feige said.

The MCU head also said Michael Keaton’s Vulture would have “technical origins”, and teased that Peter Parker’s suit would have “many things we haven’t seen yet that Stark Industries has supplied”.

Talk about a tease. With Marvel blending both magic (Doctor Strange) and science into their unique mix, it’s going to be exciting times ahead.

Spider-Man: Homecoming opens in July next year.
