Spider-Man: Homecoming the first to launch a Harry Potter-like series

Now that Spider-Man is allowed to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the studio has come up with a brand new approach. The reboot of the character introduces us to a younger Spider-Man, and that's a decision made with a purpose.

It seems that Spider-Man: Homecoming might be the first of a number of Spider-Man movies that will follow Peter Parker through his high school years. The format is similar to what we've seen in the Harry Potter series. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige explained:

The first step was to reintroduce a new Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Civil War, and have people leave the theater saying, "I love that Spider-Man. I wanna see more of him." I think that’s happened. The next step is making a great Spider-Man: Homecoming and a great film that showcases Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and makes everybody fall in love with him all over again.

Will Spider-Man follow the Harry Potter format?

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the decisive movie. If people love it, there will be more of it. At Comic-Con 2016, Kevin Feige revealed:

Should we be able to make more after that? Sure. This is sophomore year, is the next one junior year? Is the next one senior year? Is there a summer break between each of those? I don’t know what, but it was sort of how do we do a journey for Peter not dissimilar for what the students of Hogwarts would go through each of their years, which was one of the early ideas we had for the movies.

What do you think about this new concept under consideration by Marvel Studios?
