"Why can't you just be a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man?"
Tony Stark[src]

Spider-Man: Homecoming[2] is a 2017 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man. It will be a reboot of the Spider-Man franchise and the sixteenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while also being the fourth installment of Phase Three.

Following the release of the film's trailer in December 2016, Sony Pictures Studios scheduled a sequel for release on July 5, 2019.


A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, 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 (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). 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 (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.[3]

According to Kevin Feige, Spider-Man: Homecoming was set to begin production in June 2016. “We literally just crossed the halfway mark of Captain America: Civil War last week, it’s day 42 or 43 of 80. We start filming Doctor Strange in London in November. We start shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in February–March [2016]. We start filming Thor: Ragnarok and Spider-Man around the same time, around June of next year.”[34]

On April 12, 2016, the movie's title was officially confirmed to be "Spider-Man: Homecoming". On April 13, it was reported that Michael Keaton was in negotiations for the role of an unknown villain, but he dropped out of the project one week later.[35]

Later in the month, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as Tony Stark / Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming.[4]

On May 20, 2016, Keaton was reportedly back in talks, and entered in final negotiations.[36]

On June 14, 2016, It was reported that Donald Glover had been cast in an unknown role.

On June 17, 2016, Hollywood Reporter reported that Logan Marshall-Green was in talk for the role of a villain.[37] The same day, Deadline reported that Martin Starr also joined the cast.[17]

On July 23, 2016, at San Diego Comic Con, a number of roles were confirmed including Michael Keaton as the Vulture and Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson. They also unveiled the first piece of footage, showing Peter in high school.

On September 23, Tom Holland officially wrapped his scenes in Atlanta and moved to New York City.[38]

In June 2016, Rothman stated that Sony and Marvel were committed to making future Spider-Man films. The following month, Feige stated if additional films were made, "one of the early ideas [Marvel] had" for the films would be to follow the model of the Harry Potter film series, having the plot of each film cover a new school year, adding, "it was sort of how do we do a journey for Peter not dissimilar for what the students of Hogwarts would go through each of their years". By October 2016, discussions had begun for a second film, according to Holland, figuring out "who the villain is going to be and where we're going" in a potential sequel. In December 2016, after the successful release of the first Homecoming trailer, Sony slated a sequel to the film for July 5, 2019. The plan for the sequel is to occur during Parker's junior year of high school, with a potential third film occurring during his senior year.
