Captain America: Civil War directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo offered some insights into their vision of Spider-Man when comicbook.com caught up with them at Wizard World New Orleans.
Though the duo could not comment on whether or not Spider-Man will be seen in marketing or merchandise leading up to the May 6th release of Civil War, they were able to discuss their “naturalistic” approach to the character. In trying to give Peter Parker, as played by Tom Holland, a more contemporary flavor, Joe Russo noted the Parker homes in both Spider-Man feature series would be well beyond Aunt May’s means today, even if those dwellings are true to the Spider-Man comics of previous eras.
In taking that logical lens to the character and his situation, the directors asked themselves, “Where would they live? What would that look like? Where could they afford to live?”
Anthony Russo said the approach is not dissimilar to how they handled the previous film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In that sequel, they also brought the characters into a more grounded reality, or as he put it, “at least to the degree you can do that in a superhero movie.” If The Winter Soldier is any indication, it is a good approach to the characters.
Captain America: Civil War opens on May 6th.
