The new Spider Man has finally been chosen! Tom Holland has nabbed the role of the webslinger entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel and Sony announced this morning.
Peter Parker will be a teenager going to high school by day and saving the city by night…and probably during his lunch hour. Holland will make his debut in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War” before appearing in a stand-alone film in 2017.
Jon Watts has been tapped to direct the 2017 “Spider Man” film.
The role of Spider Man has been played by several actors in recent years. Tobey Maguire starred in the trilogy from Sam Raimi. Andrew Garfeild played the role for two “Amazing Spider Man” films before Sony decided to reboot the property once again. Unlike the previous two series, the upcoming installments will all be set in high school.
