Marc Webb’s reboot of Spider-Man has been rumored to be inspired by Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man comics. According to MTV, Webb confirmed that the Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley-created books are among his favorite web-slinger stories days before he announced he would lead the retooling of the film franchise.
“Stan Lee, big fan… love the Ultimate stuff”
Webb also reacted to rumors that his (500) Days of Summer star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is up for the role of Peter Parker.
“Joseph Gordon-Levitt would make a good Meryl Streep – he can do anything”
