Jon Watts Comments On Spider-Man’s Place In The MCU

After everyone saw Captain America: Civil War, a name was surely on their mind: Spider-Man. Tom Holland brought comic accuracy and humor to the character, something we hadn’t seen much of before. The director of the upcoming Spidey flick, Jon Watts, commented on the character’s place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe:

“If the Avengers Tower is the penthouse and we know what it’s like to be a millionaire, billionaire playboy to be Tony or we know what it’s like to be a God on another planet, that’s the penthouse level of the MCU. Spider-Man is the ground floor. What does a high school in the MCU look like? What does riding the subway in the MCU feel like? Spider-Man seems like the most perfect opportunity because he’s the most regular person in the canon that I thought he was a great chance to show what that angle of the MCU feels like.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017, and features a giant cast you can read about right here.
