LOS ANGELES: Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says the reboot of "Spider-Man" will focus on Peter Parker as a high school superhero and not on his successor in the comic books, Miles Morales, or anyone else who has donned the Spider-Man mask over the years.

Feige told Collider magazine that the next Spider-Man will be a 15 or 16-year-old Peter Parker, reports variety.com.

"In terms of the age of an actor we’ll eventually cast, I don’t know. In terms of the age of what we believe Peter Parker is, I’d say 15-16 is right,” he said.

Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s characters were initially high schoolers as well, but Feige said keeping the superhero in that setting for an extended period of time allows for the introduction of new stories - much needed after five "Spider-Man" films.

“Some of my favourite Spider-Man arcs and Spider-Man stories, he’s in high school for a lot of it. We want to explore that. That also makes him very, very different from any of our other characters in the (Marvel Cinematic Universe), which is something else we want to explore: how unique he is when now put against all these other characters,” Feige added.

Marvel reportedly will introduce the new Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War”, which hits theaters on May 6, 2016. Meanwhile, the latest “Spider-Man” franchise launches on July 28, 2017.
