Tom Holland's Peter Parker will be going back to high school in this superhero reboot, but fans won't be subjected to yet another version of the same origin story. Peter will already be established as Spider-Man when the story begins, with the reboot set to be part of a new trilogy, where each movie takes place during a different year of high school. Jon Watts, whose indie drama Cop Car hits theaters on August 7, is directing, with Kevin Feige producing alongside Amy Pascal.
Earlier this week, another report surfaced that featured an illustration that hints at what the new Spider-Man costume will look like. Kevin Feige has stated in previous interviews that Peter Parker will have a "homemade" costume in the superhero reboot, but it isn't known when we may get our first official look at Tom Holland in this full costume. Hopefully Sony and Marvel release an official image in the near future, but since we don't know when production is even starting on Spider-Man yet, it remains unclear when we'll get our first look at the costume.Read More
The new Spider-Man movie is still in its infancy, with the script being written as we speak. Tom Holland will make his debut appearance as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War, which is currently shooting at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta. The actor is said to only have a cameo in that sequel, and will only be on set for a week. We'll be sure to keep you updated as more information comes in.

Earlier today, Marvel and Sony Pictures announced that 19-year-old Tom Holland has been cast as the new Spider-Man, with the actor beating out other top contenders such as Asa Butterfield, Charlie Rowe, Matthew Lintz and Charlie Plummer. The studios also settled on relatively new director Jon Watts, whose film Cop Car hits theaters this August, to direct the superhero movie which takes Peter Parker back to high school. Variety has details on how Marvel and Sony landed on their new star and director, including that Spidey will only have a brief cameo in Captain America: Civil War.
When Marvel and Sony struck a deal to bring Spidey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was revealed that the new Spider-Man will first appear in one Marvel movie before the stand alone Spider-Man reboot, set to hit theaters in July 2017. While this still hasn't been officially confirmed by the studios, Tom Holland will reportedly only have a cameo in Captain America: Civil War, and he will only be on set for about one week. Of course, details about how he will fit into the story have not been released yet.Read More
Sony and Marvel Studios are proud to announce that after a full worldwide casting search, Tom Holland will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the next Spider-Man film, in theaters in IMAX and 3D on July 28, 2017. The film will be directed by Jon Watts, director of Cop Car, the upcoming thriller that made its debut earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.
Marvel and Sony Pictures, and producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal conducted an extensive search for both the actor and the director. The studios and producers were impressed by Tom Holland's performances in The Impossible, Wolf Hall and the upcoming In the Heart of the Sea, and by a series of complex screen tests. Following Marvel's tradition of working with the brightest next wave of directors, Watts also went through multiple meetings with Feige, Pascal and the studio, before winning the job.Read More
Last week, we heard a variety of different stories concerning Marvel and Sony's new Spider-Man reboot planned for 2017. Some rumors claimed that the two studios were at a standstill, and arguing over who should be Peter Parker. While nothing is confirmed, Asa Butterfield no longer appears to be in the running. The two final candidates are said to be Tom Holland and Charlie Rowe. But no announcement has been made, and it isn't expected soon. While we wait to hear who will be our new Spider-Man, Tom Holland has decided to up his ante by sharing instagram videos that show off exactly why he should be the new Peter Parker.
In three different videos, apparently shot at the young actor's house, Tom Holland performs an increasingly difficult series of flips off his porch. He starts with a front flip, and ends with a pretty Amazing backflip. If he is chosen to become Spider-Man, it's clear he'll be doing some of his own stunts. In fact, this looks particularly dangerous, and brings into question the insurance policy the studio will have to take out on the young star. He could easily break his neck doing something like this.Read More
