Sony Pictures and Marvel announced today actor Tom Holland will play the role of Peter Parker in the upcoming Spider-man film, coming to theaters on July 28, 2017. Both companies also announced Jon Watts becomes the director for the film.
Producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal feel like they’ve made the right choice. Along with Marvel and Sony Pictures, both producers saw the 19-year-old British actor’s impressive talents from Holland’s performances in the films “The Impossible” and “Wolf Hall.”
“As with James Gunn, Joss Whedon, and the Russo brothers, we love finding new and exciting voices to bring these characters to life. We spent a lot of time with Jon and find his take and work inspiring,” mentioned Feige.
Pascal said: “Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we’ve found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man’s story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
Holland will make his first appearance as Spider-man in the film Captain America: Civil War.
