“I grew up without a superhero to look up to,” Cretton stated to The Hollywood Reporter. “I gravitated towards Spider-Man when I was a kid, primarily because he had a mask covering his face, and I could imagine myself under that mask. I would love to give my son a superhero to look up to. I feel very privileged to be a part of telling that story.”
