At the time of publication, this is all we know to be true of the upcoming Spider-Man reboot (or it it a re-reboot, or an unboot, or a different sort of boot entirely?):
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios will collaboratively produce the film.
Unfortunately, this new set photo from Captain America: Civil War doesn't feature Tom Holland in his Spider-Man costume, but it's the first real look we've had of the actor on the set of the upcoming film, as he prepares to make his MCU debut. And while he's not boasting a super-suit, this could be our first glimpse of the new Peter Parker.
The upcoming movie release calendar is like a table full of dominos; incredible expensive dominos that are each worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Once one shifts, they all start to move around.
Ever since Marvel and Sony announced plans to collaborate on the rebooting of Spider-Man, the studios have been playing things pretty close to the vest. Tom Holland is set to make his debut as the web-slinging hero in Captain America: Civil War, but fans have been curious about how Peter Parker will make his debut, and what exactly attracts him to this major conflict. A new rumor offers a few potential details about Spider-Man and his relation to the MCU, but as always, you should approach this one with a little skepticism.
There’s a lot to look forward to in Captain America: Civil War: the evolution of Cap and Iron Man, an Avengers team divided, the introduction of Black Panther and a new Spider-Man, and much, much more. And while we know quite a bit about the plot and some of the characters who will appear, there’s still a few things we don’t know just yet — the directing duo behind the film recently answered some questions to help shed some light on where things stand in Civil War and what we can expect from that new Spidey.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller are the saviors of bad franchise ideas, achieving the impossible and making believers of even the most skeptical among us — from 21 Jump Street to The LEGO Movie, these guys have turned dumb concepts into great films. For their next trick, the pair are working on an animated Spider-Man movie (no relation to the new live-action reboot) and a young Han Solo prequel for the Star Wars series. The former will now hit theaters just a little later than originally planned, but judging by their previous work, it’ll be worth the wait.
Before you get all crazy about that headline, you should probably know that this doesn’t necessarily mean that Tom Holland will be making cameo as Spider-Man in Doctor Strange — that said, the actor did drop by the set of Marvel’s mystical superhero film, where he hung out with director Scott Derrickson and Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito. And while a Spidey cameo in Doctor Strange isn’t guaranteed…um, stranger things have happened.
That’s it, I’m moving to Austin.
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
Robert Downey, Jr. and Chris Evans appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week to debut the first Captain America: Civil War trailer. And, if the internet rumormongers are to be believed, they also did something else: revealed they would be making appearances in Marvel and Sony’s new Spider-Man movie.
