Writers of Spider-Man: Homecoming Reveal Their Favourite Scene

- Article Continues Below Advertisement -

One of the many reasons that the MCU has grown into a box-office success is the emotional connection that fans have to each of its characters. Despite all of the flashy CGI moments and epic action scenes that cost millions of dollars to bring to reality, it’s often the smaller character-based scenes that have the most impact with audiences. The very best films find a way to bring both aspects together seamlessly, and that’s one area that Marvel Studios excels in.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, two of the writers behind Spider-Man: Homecoming, reveal details of one such scene that was their favourite to write for the movie. Whilst discussing their opinion on the recently announced Snyder cut of Justice League, the follow-up question asks if they learned any lessons whilst working with DC and Warner Bros. on a cancelled The Flash movie. Goldstein provided this insight into their approach:

The challenge is to approach it as you would a much smaller movie, and not get caught up in the fact that you have $100 million-plus to spend…Rather, focus on the stuff that makes it special and makes an audience invest — and that’s the characters.

In reply, John Francis Daley stated:

And it’s how we approached Spider-Man, too. Our favorite scene that we wrote in the movie was the scene in the car where Michael Keaton is driving Tom Holland to the dance. It was probably the least visual spectacle of that whole film.
