Kevin Feige Compares Spider-Man Reboot To Batman Begins


Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige says their new Spider-Man should have more humor than what we've seen in the previous five Spidey films. He also compares the reboot to Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins.

"There are so many things that are integral to his character in the comics that haven't been explored yet," Feige told IGN. "That's what's most exciting. Batman was the same way, there were four Batman movies over however many years and then Batman Begins was able to do something unique, tap into a side that hadn't been seen before in the movies. It is a similar thing. Of course the tone is completely different than Batman."

"When he puts that mask on in the comics, he has a non-stop wit that is almost as troublesome to the bad guys he is fighting as his webs and agility," Feige added. "And we feel we really haven't seen that in the movies. That's just the tip of the iceberg."
