New ‘Spider-Man’ Film Won’t Be Origin Story, Says Screenwriter

“I think that everybody feels like, you know he got bit by a spider and you know Uncle Ben died,” according to Jonathan Goldstein.

“I think it’ll be a fun departure from the Peter Parker you’ve seen,” Goldstein’s writing partner John Francis Daley said. “Now he is truly a kid and I think the stakes are increased in that his struggle through high school is very real and isn’t just sort of a side note. It matters now.”

“We want to explore the fact that just because you get super powers, [it] doesn’t make you into a really sophisticated, successful adult,” he said. “He’s still a kid, and he’s clumsy and he’s a geek and he’s a bit of an outcast and, in many ways, the super powers amplify that and exacerbate his trying to fit in.”

I wouldn’t mind, if Peter Parker had originally been black, a Latino, an Indian or anything else, that he stay that way, but we originally made him white. I don’t see any reason to change that.

I (also) think the world has a place for gay superheroes, certainly. But again, I don’t see any reason to change the sexual proclivities of a character once they’ve already been established. I have no problem with creating new, homosexual superheroes.

It has nothing to do with being anti-gay, or anti-black, or anti-Latino, or anything like that. Latino characters should stay Latino. The Black Panther should certainly not be Swiss. I just see no reason to change that which has already been established when it’s so easy to add new characters. I say create new characters the way you want to. Hell, I’ll do it myself.
