Shooting on the reboot, which is titled Spider-Man: Homecoming, wrapped in early October. It has since been revealed that Michael Keaton is playing the film’s villain.

Tom Holland made his debut as the iconic comic book character in this year’s Captain America: Civil War. He will also be joined in his standalone Spider-Man movie by Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and by Zendaya, who is rumoured to be playing Mary-Jane Watson.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a joint production between Sony and Marvel Studios, the third cinematic iteration of Peter Parker/Spider-Man, but the first to tie in with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Preview footage from the movie, scheduled for release on July 7, 2017, was shown during a panel at Comic-Con in San Diego in July.

Though the footage has yet to make its way online, fans and journalists who attended the panel reported that it was mainly set in high school and had a tone reminiscent of classic John Hughes movies like Weird Science and Pretty In Pink.

Director Jon Watts said during the panel: “It’s a straight up high school movie. It’s about a 15 year old kid. This is the ground level of the Marvel Universe.”
