Peter Parker leaps into action in new Spider-Man: Homecoming image

Spider-Man: Homecoming

After five movies and two different actors playing the role, Peter Parker finally looks like an ordinary high school student in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING. As Sony/Marvel seem keen on producing "multiple movies where he’s in high school," that's certainly a good thing. With the release of the next Spidey flick just a few short months away, Empire has revealed a new image from SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING which shows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) leaping into action, or perhaps just taking a shortcut on his way home.

"We’ve seen the billionaire. We’ve seen the god. We’ve seen the soldier. Now we get to see the kid," said Tom Holland. After his scene-stealing turn in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, I can't wait to see what Holland can do now that he has room to breathe in his own standalone film. Along for the ride will be Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes/Vulture and Marisa Tomei as May Parker. Although there have been more than a few SPIDER-MAN films over the past fifteen years, the two studios are hoping that SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING will represent a fresh slate for the web-slinger, with producer Eric Hauserman Carroll insisting that "we’re not making the sixth Spider-Man movie, we’re making the first Peter Parker movie."

The official synopsis for SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING:

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.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is set for a July 7, 2017 release.
