Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige speaks on the possible outcome of the planned slew of new Spider-Man films in line of their joint deal with Sony Pictures, drawing inspiration to the popular franchise 'Harry Potter' as its template to the character's journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

After briefly appearing in Captain America: Civil War, the character of Spider-Man/ Peter Parker is set to star in his stand-alone feature 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' with actor Tom Holland as the titular web-slinger. 

Feige said:
The first step was reintroduce a new Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Civil War and have people leave the theater saying, ‘I love that Spider-Man. I wanna see more of him.’ I think that’s happened. The next step is making a great Spider-Man: Homecoming and a great film that showcases Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and makes everybody fall in love with him all over again.
Since the film's backdrop will be a teenager's daily life in high school, Feige hopes that the film will be the start of a series of high school films taking cue on 'Potter's treatment to the genre, narrating a student's academic ventures annually. 

Feige explained:
Should we be able to make more after that? Sure. This is sophomore year, is the next one junior year? Is the next one senior year? Is there a summer break between each of those? I don’t know what, but it was sort of how do we do a journey for Peter not dissimilar for what the students of Hogwarts would go through each of their years, which was one of the early ideas we had for the movies.
Directed by Jon Watts, 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' opens July 2017!
