Tom Holland has been busy on the Atlanta and New York sets of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming,’ and now he’s ready for a nap.

Peter Parker is having a literal homecoming on the set of the new Spider-Man movie. Earlier this week, Tom Holland and the ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ crew moved production from the Atlanta set to the streets of New York City.
Just last week, Joe and Anthony Russo shared a behind-the-scenes photo of Josh Brolin rehearsing for Avengers: Infinity War, giving us our first look (sort of) at Thanos’ return. But Jon Watts isn’t about to let the Russos get away with stealing the superhero spotlight — in response, the director of Spider-Man: Homecoming has offered up a new set video that shows off Tom Holland’s breakdancing skills, complete with mo-cap Spidey action.
You might remember a call sheet that surfaced from the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming a couple of weeks ago, seemingly revealing a handful of previously unannounced characters. But without official confirmation, those names (mostly) offered intriguing possibilities, particularly with regards to a certain character played by Fargo star Bokeem Woodbine. Warning: Potential spoilers ahead.
The latest photo from the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming is dark — literally. As in, Tom Holland is hanging out (lurking?) in an alleyway, doing his best Daredevil impression, righteously looking down on injustice from atop a structure piled with boxes and making all of us feel very small in comparison. It’s like, a metaphor or something. Also it’s just a cool photo with a nice shout-out to Holland’s stunt team.
Just when we thought there wouldn’t be anymore Spider-Man: Homecoming casting news, here comes a bit of an unexpected — but pleasant — surprise: Jon Favreau will reprise his Iron Man role in Sony and Marvel’s upcoming reboot, joining MCU star Robert Downey Jr. for Tom Holland’s first solo outing as the iconic web-slinging hero. It’s news that should make several fans, uh, happy?
After months of updates, it looks like the cast list for Spider-Man: Homecoming is finally complete. Sony and Marvel have assembled a great lineup for their upcoming reboot, which includes a few funny, familiar faces — like comedian and Broad City star Hannibal Buress, who was recently rumored to be playing Peter Parker’s gym teacher. That seems to be the case, as Buress himself has hilariously confirmed his role in the new Spidey film.
He might not be able to shoot actual webbing from his hands, but that doesn’t mean Tom Holland will be leaving all the stunts in Spider-Man: Homecoming up to the wizardry of CGI.
Late last week a pretty substantial rumor surfaced suggesting that Zenadaya’s secret role in Spider-Man: Homecoming is actually Mary Jane Watson. While neither Marvel nor Sony have confirmed or even responded to those rumors, it elicited an unfortunately predictable reaction from several fans who were unhappy that a woman of color would be playing a character traditionally depicted as a white redhead. James Gunn already weighed in with his thoughts, and our own Matt Singer wrote an excellent piece on the matter, and now Stan Lee himself has offered his reaction to the recent casting rumor.
This week, details emerged that actress Zendaya would be playing an updated version of Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. While many people greeted this news with good cheer, a very vocal minority of people had some pretty nasty things to say about the changes made to their beloved character. Yesterday, James Gunn, the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, took to Facebook to share his nuanced thoughts regarding the controversy.
