Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have announced that actor, Tom Holland, will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in their next Spider Man film, which is set to hit theaters on July 28. 2017. In addition, director Jon Watts will helm the feature.
“It’s a big day here at Sony,” Tom Rothman, Sony Pictures Motion Pictures Group Chairman, said. “The Marvel process is very thorough, and that’s why their results are so outstanding. I’m confident Spider-Man will be no exception. I’ve worked with a number of up-and-coming directors who have gone on to be superstars and believe that Jon is just such an outstanding talent. For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom’s screen tests were special. All in all, we are off to a roaring start.”
Sony Pictures will release the next installment of Spider-Man, in a film co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel.
