Spider-Man: Homecoming is an upcoming film as part of the deal between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment. It will be a reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, and sixteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has Peter Parker juggled both school and a superhero.[1][2][3]


A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May, under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark. Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.


Continuity and References to the Marvel Cinematic Universe


In February 2015, it was reported that Dylan O’Brien and Logan Lerman were front-runners to portray Spider-Man.[10] However, in March 2015, O'Brien denied any involvement in playing Spider-Man.[11]

In March 2015, Drew Goddard was being considered to write and direct the film.[12][13][14]

In April 2015, while promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron, Feige stated that the character of Peter Parker would be about 15 to 16 years old.[15] He also added that the film would not be an origin story for the character, saying, “In Spider-Man’s very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it’s been – [thirteen] years – for us we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics. But... [i]t is inherent to who his character is. [W]e want to reveal it in different ways and spend much more time focusing on this young high school kid in the MCU dealing with his powers.” Feige also stated that Marvel had been working to add Spider-Man to the MCU since at least October 2014, when they announced their full slate of Phase Three films, saying, "Marvel doesn’t announce anything officially until it’s set in stone. So we went forward with that Plan A in October, with the Plan B being, if [the deal] were to happen with Sony, how it would all shift. We’ve been thinking about [the Spider-Man film] as long as we’ve been thinking about Phase Three.”[16] Later in the month, a shortlist of actors to play Spider-Man was revealed. Actors on the short list include: Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James. Along with the actor shortlist, The Wrap also notes that Drew Goddard was still in talks to direct.[17] By the end of the month, Holland and Butterfield were reportedly the front runners to portray Spider-Man.[18]

In May 2015, Deadline reported that a short list of directors were in the running to direct the film, it includes: Ted Melfi, Jonathan Levine, directing duo John Francis Daley & Jonathan M. Goldstein, Jared Hess, Jason Moore, and Jon Watts.[19] By the end of the month, Butterfield, Holland, Judah Lewis, Matthew Lintz, Charlie Plummer and Charlie Rowe screen tested for the lead role. The six were chosen out of a search of over 1,500 actors to test in front of Feige, Pascal and the Russo brothers, the directors of Captain America: Civil War, with a casting expected by early June 2015.[20]

In June 2015, Levine and Melfi became favorites to the direct the film, with Daley, Goldstein and Jon Watts also in consideration.[21] Later in the month, Tom Holland was officially cast as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Jon Watts was confirmed to direct.[22]

In July 2015, Marisa Tomei was cast as Aunt May.[23] Later in the month, John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, who were also in talks to direct the film, are in talks to write the screenplay.[24] By the end of the month, Daley and Goldstein officially signed on to write the film.[25]

In March 2016, Zendaya is cast as a character named Michelle. [26]

In April 2016, the title was revealed as Spider-Man: Homecoming.[27] Later in the month, Michael Keaton was in early talks to join the film and Laura Harrier was cast in an unspecified role while Tony Revolori was cast as Peter Parker's friend Manuel.[28] Towards the end of the month, Robert Downey Jr. joined the cast as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Michael Keaton dropped out of early talks to appear in the film.[29] However, in May 2016, THR reported that Keaton was closing a deal to play the villian of the film, while Deadline revealed that Keaton had in fact closed the deal to play the villian..[30][31][32]


Filming is slated to begin in June 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia and New York City.[33][34]

Filming ended in October 2016.[35]


In November 2016, Feige confirmed that Keaton would play the Vulture.[36]


  • In February 2015, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced a deal between the two studios: first introducing a new Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (presumably Captain America: Civil War, per TWSJ), and then a solo film released by Sony Pictures with Kevin Feige co-producing with Amy Pascal.[37][38]
  • Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films.
  • Andrew Garfield will not be reprising his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Marc Webb will not be returning to direct.[39][40]
  • Sony Spider-Man spin-offs, for the moment, are still in the works. This includes Sinister Six, Venom and the female Spidey characters film that was previously announced.[41]
  • Rumored titles for the new film were Spider-Man: The New Avenger and The Spectacular Spider-Man.
  • Chandler Riggs of The Walking Dead fame auditioned for the role of Spider-Man.[42]
