Why Spider-Man’s Screenwriter David Koepp won’t pen another Superhero Movie!

Published

Original 2002 Spider-Man screenwriter, David Koepp has said that he is not planning to do a superhero movie anytime soon. David Koepp ushered waves of commercial and superhero blend and started modern superhero scenario in the movie industry with his first Spider-Man. A movie still a classic for superhero fans as it established superheroes as “normal” funny, desperate, in-love and human-like characters, which, movies like Superman and Batman couldn’t possibly do.

Although franchises like Batman, Superman and even Spider-Man were still alive and blooming in that era, Koepp garnered a vicious theme which would make the coming generation of superhero movie watchers as addicts, and that was family entertainment. Spider-Man which streams on Hulu now tackles major themes but in a non-complicated way. A way which could get across people of all ages, be it children, teenagers, young adults or adults. In short, Spider-Man made people like and laugh at superheroes rather than making them a tool for procrastination and exaggerated Monday motivation.

Recently, in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Koepp was asked about why he doesn’t do superhero movies and has not made a superhero flick since Spider-Man, to which he said:

“You know, never say never on anything. I mean, I had a great time with the Spider-Man movie, but superhero movies have evolved so profoundly and in such a sophisticated storytelling way. They are just very different from when I was interested in them. So, I like to watch them, but I like to think of new stuff whenever I can.”

He is correct in many ways, Superhero movies, since, have evolved quite a worthy lot. People do not like simple, mono themed, unidimensional plots. After the advent of Marvel and DC universes and Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy, people are now considering superhero movies centred for young adults and teenagers who follow comic books or manga, themes have been more scientific and fantastical. In a way,  you can’t just go into the theatres to watch a Marvel movie and hope to understand everything around it. Superheroes are not your families entertainment anymore, they are pieces of deep imagination and profound imagery.

Despite not having ventured back into the superhero realm, Koepp has still made waves in other genres since. He notably penned the script for Steven Spielberg’s Indian Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull as well as Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and 2017’s The Mummy. Most recently, he jumped into the horror genre with Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried’s You Should have left.

Although Koepp is no stranger to fantastically themed genre and is still famous for that niche. We recently heard that Koepp has been offered Universal’s “Bride of Frankenstein”, we don’t know yet if Koepp has taken the offer but we are sure Koepp will still be making great movies for us in the future.

I do not hate people, but I despise their existence. Hi, I’m an actor, writer, poet, visual artist, a man of science and also the least favourite person in my family. Our beloved Hemingway, once said "There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." I believed in this quote humbly, truly and faithfully, now I have Anemia. I hope you like my works and if you do then please tell the President about it (seriously, all we want is fame).
