Spider-Man 2017 reboot movie featuring British actor Tom Holland is called Spider-Man: Homecoming


Spider-Man: Homecoming is the title of the forthcoming Spider-Man reboot starring British actor Tom Holland.

The news was revealed on Tuesday night at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Tom hopped over to the event from the Los Angeles premiere of Captain America: Civil War for the announcement.

Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman said the title shows "Peter (Parker) is trying to find his way home."

Footage shown featured the teenager coming home to Aunt May (played by Oscar winner Marisa Tomei).

Tom is the third actor to play Spider-Man after Tobey Maguire and fellow British actor Andrew Garfield.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is due out next year on July 7, but Captain America: Civil War will give fans their first glimpse of Tom's take on everyone's favourite friendly neighbourhood hero.

Born in Kingston upon Thames, Tom is best known for playing the title role in Billy Elliot the Musical at London's Victoria Palace Theatre. He also starred in the 2012 film The Impossible.

The 19-year-old can be seen in a trailer for the new Marvel flick. He jumps into the Avengers action with the understated line: "Hey, everyone."

Chris Evans returns in the title role, alongside Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man.

Scarlett Johansson is back as Black Widow, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Paul Bettany as Vision, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Paul Rudd as Ant Man, Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier and Anthony Mackie as Falcon.

Captain America: Civil War arrives in UK cinemas on April 29.
