The new director, Jon Watts, for the spider-Man reboot reveals some facts about the movie that might pike some interest. In an article by Empire, he reveals that 19-year old Tom Holland will be playing a 15 year old Peter Parker.
I love the idea of making a coming-of-age high-school movie. We’re really going to see Peter Parker in high school and get deeper into that side of it. He’s just 15 now.”
Which also means in the movie, you won’t be seeing Uncle Ben getting murdered.
Watts also chimes about Tom Holland playing the new hero.
“Tom was pretty perfect. He’s very athletic. He can actually do a backflip! If he didn’t already capture the spirit of the character, with that on top the kid is Spider-Man.”
Athleticism is good but getting in the Spider-Man aura is better, Jon.
