Here’s Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man!

Tom Holland

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have found their Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He is Tom Holland who received critical raves for his performances in Wolf Fall and The Impossible – and is one of the stars of the upcoming The Heart of the Sea.

Jon Watts (Cop Car) has been named director of the as yet untitled Spider-Man movie.

Feige commented, “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.”

Producer Amy Pascal added, “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.”
