Spider-Man release date changed
Sony Pictures has announced a few changes to their release calendar starting with their upcoming Spider-Man reboot, a co-production with Marvel Studios. Previously set for July 28, 2017, Spider-Man will now be released on July 7, 2017. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales previously held that spot, but it was just moved to May 2017.
Tom Holland will star as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in the upcoming film, after making his debut in Captain America: Civil War. He’ll be joined by Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. Set to be directed by Jon Watts, the solo Spider-Man movie will be written by Vacation writers and directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.
“I think one of the most interesting things about Peter Parker for us is that he’s the only person in the MCU now that has a secret identity,” Holland told us last year. “So we all know who everyone else is. I think it’s quite interesting to go back to that hiding behind a mask.”
Production on Spider-Man is set to start this year in Atlanta, Georgia, the production home of Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.
