The May 6 release of Captain America: Civil War will mark Spider-Man's first entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though he's always been a Marvel character, the li'l webslinger's rights have always been tied up over at Sony Pictures. So we've gotta wonder if Marvel's making a little joke here with their official title for Spidey's July 2017 standalone movie, which is now called Spider-Man: Homecoming. Check out the movie's logo up top.
The announcement came at CinemaCon, where Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman said, “It’s obviously a high school reference and shows Peter Parker’s enduring conflict—saving the world and getting your homework done."
The new Peter is played by Englishman Tom Holland, whose credits include Wolf Hall and In the Heart of the Sea. Clown director Jon Watts is at the helm.
It was recently confirmed that Spider-Man: Homecoming will feature additional Marvel characters, probably including ones we've already gotten to know onscreen in the eight years since Iron Man kicked this whole thing off. To catch a quick glimpse of the new Spidey, go watch the Captain America: Civil War trailer.
