A new Spider-Man is here, and he's going to be popping up as a major character in Captain America Civil War at the end of April 2016.
Early reports suggest that Tom Holland's webslinger is the highlight of the third Cap outing, which is quite an achivement given the amount of other superheroes who pop up, so fans are already anticipating Spideys standalone film which is set for release in 2017. And the title has been officially revealed at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.
Spider-Man Homecoming is set to deal more with Peter Parker as a teenager in highschool, and the title is likely at least partly a reference to that important coming of age event which doesn't translate particularly well outside of the USA. It's sort of like the debs, only with less drinking.
Homecoming will see 19 year old Brit Tom Holland taking centre stage for a Marvel blockbuster. He's best known for appearances as a young fella in The Impossible and In the Heart of the Sea and will bring some actual teenage kudos to the role. Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire were both in their late 20s by the time of their first showing as Spidey. Indie director Jon Watts is at the helm.
Spider-Man Homecoming is set for release in July 2017.
