Marvel's Spider-Man Film Coming Sooner than Expected
Set initially for July 28, 2017 after debuting in Captain America: Civil War, Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man collaboration has shifted its release date, but unlike the Star Wars delay, this one is fortunately sooner rather than later.
It's now been announced that the Spider-Man reboot will arrive in theaters on July 7, initially the date set for the Pirates of the Caribbean sequel (which has now filled the initial release date for Rian Johnson's Star Wars sequel).
Spider-Man will go up against 20th Century Fox's War of the Planet of the Apes. John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein are writing the new film, with Jon Watts to direct. Tom Holland will take on the role of Peter Parker, a decision the Russo brothers made in order to actually have Spider-Man be a teenager in the world of capes and cowls.
