A bunch of new photos have surfaced from the Atlanta set of Spider-Man: Homecoming featuring your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man hanging around and even riding a bike. This movie has got a lot of fans excited. Marvel seems to have picked a great actor to take on the role, and it looks like we can expect great things from Tom Holland, especially with director Jon Watts at the helm.
During a recent interview with IGN, Rothman explained how nobody knows Spider-Man as well as Marvel:
“Here’s the thing I can tell you: We’re really, really fortunate on this because Marvel and Kevin Feige have really embraced the character, and nobody knows it as well as Marvel. It is another crown jewel of Sony’s for sure.”
He went on to talk about what Spider-Man: Homecoming’s title really means and teased a scene that he’s seen in the process:
“It’s relevant to the story because it takes place in high school and there is a scene — that I guess I can give a little thing — at a homecoming dance. I’ve actually seen the dailies of it because we already did the high school shooting of it in the first couple weeks. It’s fantastic! But it’s also a homecoming to Marvel. And a homecoming to the cinematic universe that Spider-Man belongs in. So it’s a pretty unprecedented deal between two studios, but we’re really proud of it. And all I can tell you is, those guys at Marvel — I think the technical term is — they know their shit.”
Robert Downey Jr. is set to reprise his role of Tony Stark in the film. This is something that fans are very excited about because of how their relationship started in Captain America: Civil War. When asked about the importance of Tony Stark’s role in the film, he said:
“It’s very important. It’s wonderful commercially, but that’s not why. You can see the beginnings of the relationship that was established in Civil War, so it was very important from a character part of the story, and I think fans will really be rewarded by the character growth between them.”
It’s gonna be fun seeing those two characters back together again! Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released on July 7th, 2017. Check out the latest set photo below:
