Tom Hollard confirmed as Spider-Man, heads to ‘Captain America Civil War’

Marvel Studios has officially confirmed that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will appear in Captain America: Civil War after the news that the British actor was announced to be the new Spidey.

During their interview Marvel Studios executive Kevin Feige, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Tom Holland, who was just announced as Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures’ new Spider-Man, is heading to Captain America: Civil War’s set.

Holland will report immediately to the set of the currently shooting Captain America: Civil War,” the article notes. Feige notes how their plans shifted after the first phase three announcement.

“Spider-Man wasn’t part of that announcement when we made it in October. So there’s always room to shift. But since we shifted the release dates a couple of months ago when the Sony agreement was announced, that’s the plan we’re very much headed toward, with Civil War being the first part of that. We go into production on Doctor Strange in November. The next Guardians of the Galaxy starts shooting around February of next year. The Spider-Man film soon after that. The third Thor film right about the same time. And we’re already beginning to prep: We’ve announced the writers and directors [Anthony and Joe Russo] for Avengers: Infinity War 1 and 2.”

Spider-Man was key to the Civil War story in the comic books, revealing his secret identity, joining the ranks with Iron Man, but ultimately switching to Captain America’s side and helping win the war.

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016

The Untitled Spider-Man film will arrive July 28, 2017 with director Jon Watts hired for the reboot.
