Spider-Man: Homecoming set for 2017!
Sony Make Official Announcement

Sony Pictures have confirmed new details for the stand alone Spider-Man film at the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas. The studio flew in Tom Holland to help reveal the official title - Spider-Man: Homecoming - before addressing the crowd:
“It really is a homecoming, because, throughout the movie, Peter is trying to find out who he is and where he belongs in this world.”
Tom Holland will be the third actor to portray Spider-Man in a big budget feature after Sony Pictures made a deal with Disney and Marvel to share the movie rights to the character. Holland presented the official logo for the movie after a short clip showed Peter Parker meeting Tony Stark at Aunt May's house. That sentence alone is incredible and I honestly didn't think we'd be seeing anything like this so soon after the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014. It looked like Spidey was well and truly under lock and key and the idea of him appearing alongside the Avengers would have to stay in the comics. Needless to say... good times amigos!
Jon Watts will be directing Spider-Man: Homecoming and the film is set for release July 7th 2017. Spider-Man will appear first in Captain America: Civil War which will release May 6th this year.
