While Star Wars Episode 8 had its release date delayed by several months, the Marvel Spider-Man movie reboot has been pushed forward. It will be coming out slightly earlier than expected.
As reported by Variety, the new Spider-Man movie will now be coming out on July 7th, 2017. This is up from the original July 28th, 2017 release date.
Jumanji has taken the July 28th, 2017 release date. Many people though the July 7th, 2017 date would have been occupied by the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. It’s possible Disney is having troubles filming that film so Spider-Man took its place.
The new Spidey film is the first to be guided by Marvel. Sony is still somewhat involved, but they don’t have 100 percent creative control like before. The only reason Sony collaborated with Marvel is because The Amazing Spider-Man films failed to connect with audiences.
The new Spider-Man movie stars Tom Holland as the title character and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. There has been no announcements yet on who the villain might be. Tom Holland will star in Captain America: Civil War and this will be our first taste of what his new Spidey will be like.
