A sequel to the reboot has already been given the greenlight
The latest Spider-Man reboot won’t be arriving in cinemas until next year but a sequel to the film has already been announced.
Spider-Man: Homecoming, which sees Tom Holland take on the role of the web-slinging superhero, is due out on July 7, 2017. The first trailer might only have been launched yesterday but Sony and Marvel Studios have gone ahead and confirmed that the sequel will be released on July 5, 2019, according to Deadline.
The upcoming Spider-Man film will be the first in three years and feature a younger Peter Parker than the last two iterations. The film follows Parker during his sophomore year, which includes students aged 15-16, and is being touted as a coming-of-age tale as opposed to a more traditional origin story.
For the first time, the production is joint effort between Sony and Marvel Studios, opening the way for Spider-Man to appear on screen with other characters from the Marvel universe which Disney owns the rights to. Holland made his debut in this year’s Captain America: Civil War and Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr) makes an appearance in Holland’s first solo outing next year.
Homecoming also stars Michael Keaton as his nemesis Vulture, along with Bokeem Woodbine as Shocker and Michael Chernus The Tinkerer.
