Spider-Man news continues to break these days and we have all the action covered for you here on ComiConverse.
It was reported just a few weeks ago that both John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein had entered “early talks” to write the screenplay for the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. We can now verify that while promoting their new movie Vacation, which they also co-wrote, the comedy film making duo confirmed they’ve officially signed on for the 2017 reboot with Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures.

“We can finally acknowledge that,” said John Francis Daley during a joint NPR interview. “This is the first time that we can say that we are writing it.” Jonathan M. Goldstein then chimed in saying,”We’ve been saying no comment for the last week” and that they are thrilled. “He’s a sharp kid and witty and kind of deals with the fact that he’s an outcast and a geek through humor,” said Daley of Peter Parker aka Spider-Man. “It is sort of the safety net for geeks like us, so I think we can totally relate to where he’s coming from. As well as the superpowers, which we also have.“
Directed by Jon Watts, Marvel and Sony’s untitled Spider-Man reboot so far stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and is scheduled to open in theaters on July 28, 2017. However, the friendly neighborhood web-slinger will first make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut alongside the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016.
