After all the months of speculation, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have finally cast their next Spider-Man.
While details are scarce, Marvel did reveal Peter Parker will make his appearance in Captain America: Civil War on May 16th 2016, which is currently in production.
From there, Parker will get three to four solo movies, each covering a year of high school who’ll already have been bitten by the radioactive spider (amen for no beating the origin dead horse).
The July 28th 2017 coming of age Spider-Man’s solo movie as described by Marvel Studios genius Kevin Feige and Sony’s Amy Pascal will have the tone of a John Hughes movie with humor and emotion, just with the added complications of being a superhero.
Here’s hoping they don’t screw it up.
