'Homecoming' director feels Spider-Man's great responsibilityWith great power over the latest Marvel movie comes great responsibility for up-and-coming director Jon Watts.
[BLANK_AUDIO] It's so satisfying, I mean that's the way Spiderman was always meant To be seen. He was created by Stanley and Steve Deco. In the 60's to give a new perspective on a crazy world today had been building and that's something we've never been able to explore in movies before. Now that we can I just feel like it's an infinite and our possibilities. [MUSIC] That's not a hug, I'm just grabbing the door for you. Okay, good luck out there. [MUSIC] There is some element where it just feels like you're shooting a documentary with Iron Man. He shows up and he just embodies Tony Stark in this way that is Just a joy to capture. Even before this opportunity came up, I would watch Marvel movies, or any sort of big, epic superhero movies, and I would just always think about like what are the regular people in those worlds doing, you know? Even in Guardians of the Galaxy, I remember just like, you know you see this big crowd shot and I was like, what does that guy do? Like where does he live? You know, what's his day to day life like? So, I always thought that would be a fascinating thing to explore in one of these movies. And because Peter Parker is the ground level super hero in this universe, that was an opportunity for me to do that. And I had known a little bit about the complexity of the world and various Various storylines that had been told over the years, but for me it was important to just go back to the origin and start at the very beginning. And that was so satisfying because I didn't want the movies to be the jumping off point. I wanted the comics, the original books to be the most direct inspiration for me. And that was really satisfying to just read Just read so many comics, tough job. This arrived at a really interesting time in my life because I've been wanting to make a coming of age movie, like I've been writing my own coming of age story and I got to take a lot of that energy and a lot of those moments and themes that I wanted to explore in a much smaller film and apply them to Spiderman: Homecoming. So in a sense I got to do what I wanted to do anyway, but on a much much bigger scale. Yeah, I had no problem relating to Peter Parker. He's been chosen to do this incredible thing. And it's a lot of responsibility and feels like he might be in way over his head. But is desperate to prove himself. No similarities. [BLANK_AUDIO]
