Now that Marvel and Sony are working together on Spider-Man, we’re slowly learning more about what to expect from the next phase of his cinematic life. It was reported earlier today that Drew Goddard may write and direct the next Spider-Man solo film. Goddard was originally set to helm the Sinister Six spinoff film that was supposed to be released in late 2016, but now that the Amazing Spider-Man series is deader than Gwen Stacy (too soon?), both studios evidently think he would be a good fit for the new iteration of the Wall-Crawler. If this deal is finalized/made legit, he will follow in the footsteps of Sam Raimi and Marc Webb, as well as be able to return to the MCU after leaving the Daredevil series.

With a new director also comes a new creative direction, and with this announcement also came hints of what we might see for Spidey’s solo film in 2017. Here are five big things you can expect from the rebooted Spider-Man, from his age and standing in the superhero community to the people he’ll be fighting.

5. No Origin Story
5. No Origin Story
Twice now moviegoers have seen Peter Parker be bitten by the genetically altered spider and deal with the strange abilities that came after. Not this time. Much like Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is giving us an established Caped Crusader, the new Spider-Man film will skip over his origin and assume that the story exists "from the beginning, taken as a given." It’s been implied that Marvel will be moving away from origin stories in the future, but even if that’s not true, Spider-Man’s origin is as well known as Batman and Superman’s at this point, so there’s reason to retread this ground only five years after we got the last retelling of it. However, it might be a good idea for the movie to include a flashback or two of Peter with his Uncle Ben. Seeing the spider bite him again would be tedious, but there’s nothing wrong with showing the audience where Peter gained his moral compass.
