Kevin Feige Says That Spider-Man Is ‘The Biggest Marvel Character’

Spider-Man Homecoming

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige had some very complimentary things to say about Spider-Man. In the Fan’s Guide to Spider-Man: Homecoming, which aired on Disney Channel, Feige said that Spider-Man is an “amazing icon” and pretty much stated that he’s the best the superhero world had to offer.

“Spider-Man is the biggest Marvel character. He is the jewel in the crown. Such an amazing icon. He’s a very different kind of hero because he is, quite simply, the greatest superhero of all-time.”

Check out the movie’s synopsis below.

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is in theaters July 7, 2017.
