"Spider-Man" Director Confirms Peter Parker's Age

Jon Watts, director of Sony Pictures' and Marvel Studios forthcoming Spider-Man reboot, spoke with Empire Magazine about the upcoming project, confirming Peter Parker's age and sharing some insights about his approach to the film's tone.

"I love the idea of makiking a coming-of-age high-school movie," Watts told Empire (via Yahoo!). "We're really going to see Peter Parker in high school and get deeper into that side of it. He's just 15 now."

Watts also reiterated that we won't be seeing Spider-Man's origin for a third time saying, "There are only so many times you can kill Uncle Ben."

Directed by Watts and starring Tom Holland as the wall-crawling hero and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, "Spider-Man" opens on July 28, 2017.
