  • 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.
  • This younger version of Peter Parker is played by Tom Holland, and appears in 2016's Captain America: Civil War (distributed by Disney) before starring in Spider-Man: Homecoming (distributed by Sony) in 2017. Holland is the third actor to play the role in the Sony movies, following in the footsteps of fellow Brit Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.

    He is best known for playing the title role in Billy Elliot the Musical at the Victoria Palace Theatre, London, as well as for starring in the 2012 film The Impossible.
  • Being among the actresses who have been quietly testing for the movie, Zendaya has scored a "key role" in Spider-Man’s latest solo adventure as a character named Michelle. Her character will not be a love interest for Parker or a lead character in the film. However, her character will play a big part in future installments.
  • Michael Keaton is in talks for roles with Keaton for a villainous role. It is unclear what character Keaton would play in the story that is said to take Spider-Man to his high school roots.

    The actor is famous for inhabiting the cowl of Batman, starring as Bruce Wayne in Tim Burton’s two classic comic book movies, Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992).
  • In July 2015, it was reported that Marisa Tomei was in talks for the role of Aunt May. The job marks a new direction for Tomei, who generally sticks to dramas like “The Ides of March” and “The Wrestler,” or romantic comedies like “Crazy Stupid Love” and “My Cousin Vinny” (which landed her an Oscar), rather than studio tentpoles.

    According to some complaints, Tomei, 50, is just too young and attractive to portray the character – who was played in Sam Raimi’s 2002 film Spider-Man by the then 74-year-old Rosemary Harris, and by a 66-year-old Sally Field in 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man. Others argued more seriously that the casting was a byproduct of Hollywood’s negative attitude towards age.
  • Tony Revolori as Peter Parker’s enemy at high school who isn’t a super villain. He is best known for playing the role of Zero Moustafa in The Grand Budapest Hotel.
  • “One Life to Live” star Laura Harrier has landed a significant role in Sony and Marvel’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming".

    Harrier has previously appeared in the Anna Kendrick musical “The Last 5 Years” and the indie comedy “4th Man Out.” She also recently filmed the Steve McQueen HBO pilot “Codes of Conduct.”
  • Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios jointly announced that Watts would direct the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, slated for a July 7, 2017 release. Watts also directed the films Clown and Cop Car and episodes of the Onion News Network.
