Newest Spider-Man film will not be another origin story

0

Thanks to Sony's Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I've spent far more time writing about comic book movies than I'd like. But I couldn't help it either because Spider-Man's muh dude. After spending some time going over the good and bad of this big move, one of my biggest draws to the new Spider-Man was the chance that we could get Miles Morales, a less white Spider-Man. But that's not going to happen. 

Speaking with Collider, Kevin Feige said that they're definitely searching for a new Peter Parker. Specifically, a much younger Peter Parker:

In terms of the age of an actor we’ll eventually to cast, I don’t know. In terms of the age of what we believe Peter Parker is, I’d say 15-16 is right.

And speaking with Crave Online, he confirmed that there won't be another origin:

In Spider-Man’s very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it’s been – [thirteen] years – for us we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics...There is a young kid [already] running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU. You just don’t know it yet.

As sad as I am to see Miles is out, and that we'll get another white kid. We'll get a younger actor and that'll at least be different. What do you think?
