In a recent interview with Forbes the Russo Brothers, directors of Captain America: Civil War and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 & Part 2, the brothers were asked about none other than the new friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. The interviewer asks about the suit and how they feel about the response from the wall crawlers debut.
Joe: “The design of the costume is what it is. That’s the design that we love, it’s the design that Kevin Feige loves and so on. He’s a very popular character so it’s always going to be controversial, people are always going to love or hate what you do with him, but all we can do is make sure that we love it, that we are true to ourselves and true to how we feel about the character and then hope that everybody else digs it.”
Anthony: “Part of issue is that we gave such a small impression of the character in that trailer, it’s something of a Rorschach test where people can pour as much of their Spidey anxieties out but when they see the movie they are going to get a very big picture of a very complete character that they have never seen before. It’s kind of hard to react to people’s reactions but they will change radically when they see the movie.”
Joe even chimes in that there are still more effects that need to be done with the new suit. The interviewer goes on to ask about whether or not we will see the web slinger in the next Avengers movie and Joe Russo says it isn’t 100% yet. Interesting, the wall crawler may not be in the next Avengers?
The interview goes on to the topic of whether or not the Spidey suit will evolve in the universe and here is what the Joe Russo had to say.
Joe: “Without question. We like making strong choices with characters so while this might be a slightly more traditional, Steve Ditko influenced suit, it is certainly in our vocabulary to develop it into something more extreme as the storytelling requires. I think there are things that people will discover when they see the film about why the suit operate the way it does, why the eyes move, all that stuff is substantiated. Everybody wants the answers yesterday but then what would be the point of seeing the movie?”
Well what do you think of the fact that Spidey might not be in Infinity War? Did you like the suit? And what other suits do you hope to see the wall crawler wear in the MCU? Be sure to let us know on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
