New Spider-Man Film Will Be Inspired By … The Breakfast Club?


“Hey Spider-Man? You Ready To Go Back To School … AGAIN?!”

I never thought the day would come where I would use Spider-Man and The Breakfast Club in one sentence. According to Marvel President Kevin Feige, the new Spider-Man film will draw inspiration from director John Hughes. The late director helmed such classics as:

I mean Kevin Feige has his vision all mapped out:

"It’s the soap opera in high school, and those supporting characters, that are interesting. Just as we hadn’t seen a heist movie in a long time, or a shrinking movie in a long time, we haven’t seen a John Hughes movie in a long time. Not that we can make a John Hughes movie — only John Hughes could — but we’re inspired by him, and merging that with the superhero genre in a way we haven’t done before excites us […] Particularly at that age, in high school, everything feels like life or death. The tests feel like life or death. Coming home from being out with your friends seemed like life or death. The stakes are high at that age."

Here we go. The MCCU “reinventing the wheel” again for poor Spider-Man — AGAIN. The first round of Spider-Man movies was nerdy, campy, and colorful. The second round of Spider-Man films was darker, grittier, down to earth. Now we’re on the third round and we’re going with 16 Candles? Well, I guess since the actor is an actually teenager, they can pile on the teen angst.


I understand this is to take place in high school again, but why do we have to have the gimmick? I just want a film with a mix of action and story (that isn’t an origin). Don’t get me wrong, I love that Spider-Man is back home at Marvel, but they should look to draw the line with all this re-imagining stuff. It’s irritating.
