SPIDER-MAN: How New Spidey Is Different From Previous Versions

The co-directors of Captain America: Civil War have dropped some intel about the new Spider-Man, who'll make his debut in the movie this spring. Anthony and Joe Russo chatted with Comic Book (posted Jan. 8, 2016) and revealed how their version of the Marvel icon will differ from the previous two incarnations - as portrayed by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

From the directors' comments it sounds like the new Spider-Man will be set in a much more naturalistic world (meaning less comic bookish) - similar to the tone we saw in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Here's a snippet from the Russo brothers' convo about Spider-Man -
“If you look at what we did with Winter Soldier with the Cap character in terms of bringing him into the modern world, trying to ground the movie tonally into something that was a step toward real-world, at least to the degree you can do that in a superhero movie, that's still the tonal universe that we're playing in in Civil War. We're bringing a character… we're bringing Spider-Man into the movie in that universe, now, in that specific tonal stylistic world. I think underscoring everything Joe was saying about your question in terms of how were we thinking about the character in relation to past interpretations of the character, part of our choices were all so colored by the specifics of the world what we were playing in with these two Captain America movies, meaning Winter Soldier and Civil War. It's a very specific tonal world. It's a little more grounded and a little more hard-core contemporary. That was also coloring our choices a lot about the character on Spider-Man.”
Captain America: Civil War opens May 6, 2016.
The Spider-Man solo movie is targeted for a July 28, 2017 opening.
