Marvel's 'Spider-Man' will be inspired by the work of director John Hughes.
Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, has admitted the new characters in the film - which will see British actor Tom Holland star as Peter Parker - will be inspired by the legendary director, who helmed 'The Breakfast Club' and 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'.
Looking forward to the new movie, Kevin said: ''It's the soap opera in high school, and those supporting characters, that are interesting.
''Just as we hadn't seen a heist movie in a long time, or a shrinking movie in a long time, we haven't seen a John Hughes movie in a long time.
''Not that we can make a John Hughes movie - only John Hughes could - but we're inspired by him, and merging that with the superhero genre in a way we haven't done before excites us.''
Kevin also insisted a superhero movie needn't always concern matters of life and death.
Referring to Disney Pixar's 'Inside Out', he told Birth.Movies.Death: ''Sometimes the stakes can just be 'Will this little girl grow up to be healthy and well put-together, or are there too many issues for her to overcome?' That's huge! That overrides a threat to reality itself.
''And I think 'Spider-Man' straddles that line in a fun way in his comics. What we wanted was a movie where the stakes could be as high as, 'This bad person is going to do this bad thing, and a lot of people could die', or, 'You don't get home in time and your aunt is going to figure this out, and your whole life is going to change'.''
