David Fincher says his pitch for his ‘SPIDER-MAN’ film in 1999 didn’t include Peter’s origin story.

Did you know that David Fincher once pitched a Spider-Man movie that didn’t include Peter’s origin story? That’s right, the guy who directed Fight Club and Se7en wanted to make a Spider-Man movie that skipped the whole “bitten by a radioactive spider” thing.

Spider-Man But By David Fincher

In a recent interview, David Fincher said that the studio wasn’t interested in his idea because they thought the origin story was essential. But Fincher argued that the origin story was “dumb” and that it would be more interesting to start the movie with Peter already as Spider-Man.

Fincher’s idea might have been ahead of its time. In recent years, there have been a number of superhero movies that have skipped the origin story, such as Deadpool and Logan. And these movies have been very successful.

So, what do you think? Should Spider-Man movies include the origin story? Or would you be interested in seeing a movie that started with Peter already as Spider-Man?

Personally, I think it would be interesting to see a Spider-Man movie that skipped the origin story. It would be a fresh take on the character and it would allow the filmmakers to focus on other aspects of Peter’s life, such as his relationship with Mary Jane or his battle with the Green Goblin.

But I also understand why some people might be attached to the origin story. It’s an iconic part of the Spider-Man mythos and it’s something that many fans love.

Ultimately, I think it’s up to the filmmakers to decide whether or not to include the origin story in a Spider-Man movie. But I’m glad that Fincher was willing to pitch a different idea, even if it was rejected at the time.
