Spider-Man will reportedly not dance in the Marvel reboot. The film’s writers, John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, said at the premiere of their directorial debut “Vacation” that Tom Holland will not show his dance moves as Tobey Maguire did his in 2007’s “Spider-Man 3.”
“I think we’re going to avoid the emo dance,” Daley told USA Today. In “Spider-Man 3,” Peter Parker (Maguire) dances in a jazz club with Gwen Stacey to make his ex-girlfriend Mary Jane jealous. He also shakes his a leg outside a clothing store.
The new Spider-Man film will reportedly explore Parker’s high school years. He will be shown coming to terms with his extraordinary powers and struggling to adjust in the school. “We have time to sort of develop the powers with him, and experience the wish fulfillment and also just the fact that it’s really alienating,” Daley added.
There are also chances that the humorous side of Parker’s personality will be explored. Daley said in his previous interview with NPR that Peter will be shown dealing with his geeky attitude through humor. He also added that he and Goldstein can totally relate to the character. “It is sort of the safety net for geeks like us, so I think we can totally relate to where he’s coming from. As well as the superpowers, which we also have,” he said.
“Cop Car” director Jon Watts will direct “Spider-Man” from the screenplay based on the characters created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The rest of the cast is not known. Marisa Tomei is reportedly in talks to play Aunty May, but nothing is confirmed as yet. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing the film and it will open July 28, 2017.
