"Oh yeah, I saw them both; they were great," he said before moving onto his excitement about Marvel's upcoming take on the hero. "I'm really glad Marvel's taking it to high school. I think that's gonna be refreshing, and just like my favourite of the Spider-Man comic books. I have a lot of faith that they really know their stuff."

Asked what he would like to see Marvel explore in these new movies, the director of the original Spider-Man trilogy reiterated his interest in seeing Peter Parker in a high school setting. "I'd like to go into his high school life and his relationships with Gwen Stacy. I love Flash Thompson. The drama and the difficulty of going through high school is so unique to a superhero, that's what Spider-Man's all about, so that they're going to explore that is very exciting." Thoughts?
