‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Wraps Filming as Tom Holland, Jon Watts Share Final Photos/Videos

     October 3, 2016


That’s a wrap on Spider-Man: Homecoming. Principal photography on the brand new Spider-Man film has come to an end as star Tom Holland and director Jon Watts both marked the occasion on Instagram. Filming began back in June, a few weeks before San Diego Comic-Con, and while a new Spider-Man reboot wasn’t entirely unexpected, the particulars of this film are still kind of unbelievable. In the wake of the so-so box office performance and critical shellacking of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony Pictures scuttled its plans for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, a Sinister Six movie, and numerous other spinoffs that had been in development since the screenwriting phase of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Given that Spider-Man is the only major comics property Sony owns, the studio was looking to find ways to build out its own interconnected superhero universe based solely on Spider-Man comics, but the reception to Amazing Spider-Man 2 had the studio rethinking its plans.

Meanwhile, then-Sony head Amy Pascal had been talking for months with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about potentially finding a way for the Disney-owned Marvel to work with Sony on a Spider-Man movie. The landmark deal shockingly came into place in February 2015, and things moved quickly as Marvel worked to cast a new Spider-Man to debut in Captain America: Civil War. The particulars of this collaboration see Marvel taking the creative lead on Spider-Man: Homecoming and using Spider-Man as part of its Marvel Cinematic Universe, while Sony produces and distributes the film as a Sony Pictures movie.

Response to Holland’s turn as Peter Parker in Civil War was highly positive, and folks can’t wait to see him take the lead in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is a high school-centric Spider-Man story that finds Michael Keaton playing the villainous Vulture and Robert Downey Jr. appearing as Tony Stark/Iron Man.

While we still have a long ways to go before the film’s July 7, 2017 release, hopes are high for this one. Take a look at Holland and Watts’ parting shots below. The film also stars Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, Bokeem Woodbine, Tony Reovlori, Laura Harrier, and Donald Glover.
