Ever since production started in Atlanta on Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming, there have been numerous photos from the set, showcasing Tom Holland both in and out of costume. We've also gotten a few glimpses at some of his co-stars like Zendaya Coleman and Tony Revolori as well, along with set photos that show Tom Holland in action in an action-packed freeway scene. Today we have even more photos along with a brief video that gives us a closer look at Tom Holland's Spidey costume, while the web-slinger stops a bike thief.
The photos, which surfaced on Twitter, shows what is said to be Tom Holland's stunt double stopping a petty thief from stealing someone's bike, although we don't know much else about the scene. A brief video was also posted, which shows the stunt double stopping the thief on the sidewalk, while suspending him in midair with his web shooters. Naturally, Spidey's webs will be added in post-production, and we don't get a great look at this scene, which was presumably shot across the street from the action, but, if anything, it shows that no crime is too small for Spider-Man to stop.
While the production is taking place in Atlanta, we don't know exactly where this scene is set. While we know a majority of the story will take place in New York City, a report from last month, that came with even more set photos, revealed that particular scene took place in Washington D.C., during a class field trip. The photos featured Spidey swinging into action, jumping onto a cement truck. While these photos that surfaced today reportedy have Tom Holland's stunt double in the suit, the photos from last month featured Tom Holland himself in costume. In related news, Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman recently spoke to IGN on the Ghostbusters red carpet, where he had nothing but praise for this new Spider-Man movie, while discussing the title.
"Here's the thing I can tell you: We're really, really fortunate on this because Marvel and Kevin Feige have really embraced the character, and nobody knows it as well as Marvel. It is another crown jewel of Sony's for sure. It's (the title) relevant to the story because it takes place in high school and there is a scene - that I guess I can give a little thing - at a homecoming dance. I've actually seen the dailies of it because we already did the high school shooting of it in the first couple weeks. It's fantastic! But it's also a homecoming to Marvel. And a homecoming to the cinematic universe that Spider-Man belongs in. So it's a pretty unprecedented deal between two studios, but we're really proud of it. And all I can tell you is, those guys at Marvel - I think the technical term is - they know their sh-t. He's fantastic! This is it. This is that character in all of its youthful complications and I have to save the world and get my chemistry homework done."
This new Spider-Man made his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War, which has made over $1.1 billion since debuting in theaters this past May. Tom Holland is first brought into this superhero universe by Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark, who recruits him to be part of Team Iron Man for this epic battle. Robert Downey Jr. has signed on to return in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which Tom Rothman said was very important to the movie as a whole.
"It's very important. It's wonderful commercially, but that's not why. You can see the beginnings of the relationship that was established in Civil War, so it was very important from a character part of the story, and I think fans will really be rewarded by the character growth between them. It's gonna be fun, I gotta say, we feel really, really lucky."
The cast keeps growing and growing as production continues, with The Nice Guys breakout star Angourie Rice recently joining the cast, sparking rumors that she may be playing either Gwen Stacy or Mary-Jane Watson. Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Michael Keaton as the villain, rumored to be Vulture and Logan Marshall-Green as another rumored villain, The Tinkerer. Tony Revolori is set to play a schoolyard nemesis of Peter Parker, along with Laura Harrier, Michael Barbieri, Martin Starr, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendenborg Jr., J.J. Totah, Donald Glover, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Bokeem Wodbine, Michael Mando and Abraham Attah rounding out the cast.
There have been rumors that Michael Mando is playing the villain Carnage, while Abaraham Attah is rumored to play Miles Morales. Robert Downey Jr. is also returning as Tony Stark/Iron Man, which isn't terribly surprising since Tony Stark and Peter Parker first met in this summer's Captain America: Civil War. Jon Watts (Cop Car) is directing Spider-Man: Homecoming from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation). Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing, with Marvel and Sony setting a July 7, 2017 release date. It isn't known how long production is supposed to last on Spider-Man: Homecoming, but while we wait for more details, take a look at the latest photos and video from the set showing Spidey's crime-fighting skills in action.
