From the many Spider-Mans in the past, our favorite friendly swinging neighbor has lit up the big screen since Tobey Maguire, who initially started the franchise back in 2002 to Andrew Garfield who brought a reboot to the screens in 2012. However, we have a new man or younger man taking up the suit in time for MCU’s phase three.

British actor and dancer, Tom Holland, 19, is the new Spider-Man for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and his first appearance as the new web slinger will be in Captain America: Civil War in theaters May 6, 2016.

Even though this will be Tom’s first appearance as Spider-Man, Tom will eventually have his own solo feature called Spider-Man: Homecoming appearing in theaters July 7, 2017. It’s a year away but it’s well worth it, considering the positive reviews major directors such as James Gunn and Peyton Reed gave regarding Tom playing the character. Some even comparing him to Heath Ledger’s portrayal as The Joker in the Dark Knight (2008).

The Spider-Man: Homecoming is speculated to have cameo appearances made by characters such as Captain America (Chris Evans), Wasp (Evangeline Lilly), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth).

There is also speculation that dancer, actress, and singer, Zendaya, 19, will have a role in the film as a love interest for Peter Parker. Including some famous Spider-Man villains such as, Vulture, a villain who managed to turn himself into the replica of a vulture and turned to a life of crime.

The film will also feature the man himself, Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Considering the relationship between the two in Captain America: Civil War, producers of Marvel and Sony have made it certain that Downey will indeed appear in the film.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be directed by Jon Watts and produced by Marvel president, Kevin Feige and former Sony executive, Amy Pascal. Plot lines for the film are being heavily guarded at this time and production is expected to begin for our friendly web slinger this summer.
