Spider-Man: Homecoming, also called Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming, is a 2017 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man. It will be a reboot of the Spider-Man franchise and the sixteenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while also being the fourth installment of Phase Three.
In March 2015, Marvel Entertainment CCO Joe Quesada indicated that the Peter Parker version of the character would be used, which was confirmed by Feige in April. Feige said that the reboot would not have an origin story, and would take inspiration from Batman Begins, as it would stay true to the spirit of the character while still having a different tone from previous incarnations.
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios jointly announced that Tom Holland would star and that Jon Watts would direct the film. Holland is signed for three films, as well as his appearance in Captain America: Civil War.
“Homecoming” will focus on Parker’s struggles to balance his high school life with his vigilantism. Rothman described it as the conflict between “saving the world and getting your algebra homework done at the same time.” Sony announced the film is planned for release on July 7, 2017.
