The Webslinger’s first solo adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe now has an official title and release date. Tom Holland will swing into theaters as Peter Parker/Spider-Man on July 7, 2017, with the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming!
Holland helped to announce the new title and date at CinemaCon 2016, as part of the Sony Pictures presentation.
Fortunately, we won’t have to wait until next summer to see the new Spidey, as he’ll rub elbows with some of Marvel’s most iconic characters when he appears in the May 6 release of Captain America: Civil War (as seen in the last trailer for the film).
Earlier this week, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that not only does Spidey end up helping Team Iron Man in Civil War, but the plan is for some Marvel Cinematic Universe stalwarts to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming. “He is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth,” Feige told EW.
Set to be directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car) from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the writing and directing team behind the 2015 comedy Vacation, Spider-Man: Homecoming will also star Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and actress and singer Zendaya as Michelle, a character whose purpose in the film is currently unknown.
