It has been very apparent that with the recent partnership with Sony and Marvel for the upcoming Spider-Man film they are taking a completely different approach from what has already been seen on the big screen with the past films. In a recent interview for Birth Movies Death Kevin Feige spoke briefly about the new film.
He continued on to compare it to their approach for Ant-Man and how the works of John Hughes has inspired them for this new film:
This is a rather interesting approach to making a Spider-Man film seeing as John Hughes’ films are monumental coming of age films that defined a generation. This inspiration seems much more in line with their casting of Tom Holland who happens to be a teenager.
In addition to this Feige also expressed their goals for a villain
This seemingly makes it clear that the film will most likely not include some of the villains we have seen before on screen. Feige also went on to describe that the stakes for a Spider-Man film don’t have to be end of the world and that could make the film more fun.
