Our beloved web-slinger will crawl back to the silver screen sooner than expected.
The British teen is expected to make his debut appearance as the young Peter Parker/Spider-Man on Marvel‘s “Captain America: Civil War“, which will be released on 6th May this year. The new web-slinger movie will be directed by Jon Watts based on a screenplay by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.
The “Spider-Man” franchise was previously under Sony’s control, but the studio and Marvel announced in February 2015 that they’ve reached a deal to share Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Former Sony Pictures chairperson Amy Pascal and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige are co-producing the new “Spider-Man” film.
In the same report, THR also revealed that Sony has shifted the release date of the “Jumanji” remake.
Based on Chris Van Allsburg’s Caldecott Medal-winning adventure book of the same name, the movie was originally slated for release this Christmas (25th December 2016). However, similar to “Star Wars: Episode VIII“, it has been pushed back by 7 months. It now lands on 28th July 2017, the date that was just vacated by the “Spider-Man” film.
Jake Kasdan is directing the remake while “Con Air” scribe Scott Rosenberg is attached to write the script with his Midnight Radio producing partner Jeff Pinkner based on a draft by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.
The shift allowed Disney to place “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”, which was previously set to be released on 7th July 2017, on the date vacated by the “Star Wars” film.
