“Spiderman” Director Marc Webb On Reboot: “[It’s] been really fun.”

From ComicBookMovie, via Popcorn Biz, the “Amazing Spiderman” director talks about rebooting the film franchise with new actors and retelling the origin story of Peter Parker, the original angsty teen:

“Well, we’re telling the story in a different way and I think it’s really important when you’re redefining a character for the audience to experience things that they haven’t experienced from the ground up. I wanted to build a character. There’s just something about the movies that I see, like, I feel like point of view is a really crucial thing in the story and that you need to build up the sort of emotional building blocks so that you can experience all the other emotions in a very specific way rather than just experience it in an intellectual way. I mean, that’s why at the beginning of the movie there’s a story of his parents. I think you want to feel what that sense of abandonment feels like as an audience member so that you can readily and appropriately identify. And we’re creating a different universe with different rules and a different tone and different villains. We’re very careful to honor the iconography of ‘Spider-Man,’ but we wanted to tell it in a new and different way.”
