Everything we know about the next Spider-Man movie

Spider-Man Homecoming Release Date

If a couple of new clips from Captain America: Civil War and the first full-length trailer for Doctor Strange weren’t enough to satiate your craving for Marvel content this week, worry not — there’s more news to share.

At CinemaCon on Tuesday night, Sony revealed that the next reboot for one of Marvel’s most beloved characters would indeed be titled Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is the title that leaks suggested earlier this month.

Marvel confirmed the news on its website shortly after the announcement was made, providing a first look at the logo (which you can see at the top of this post).

Jon Watts, best known for indie hit Cop Car, will direct Tom Holland as the titular Spider-Man and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is currently scheduled to hit theaters on July 7th, 2017. But you won’t have to wait that long to see the new and improved Spidey — Tom Holland will also play a major role in next month’s Captain America: Civil War.

Unfortunately, Sony and Marvel weren’t willing to share much about the plot of the movie, but Devin Faraci at Birth.Movies.Death. says that he ran into someone in Las Vegas (which is where CinemaCon is held) who told him that classic Spider-Man villain the Vulture would appear in Homecoming.

In what capacity, he couldn’t say, but don’t be surprised if teenage Spidey ends up squaring off against an old man with wings in 2017.
