Spider-man: Homecoming is directed by Jon Watts. A variety of cast members have been added over the past few weeks, including Donald Glover (Community), Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Abraham Attah (Beasts of No Nation), Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys), and Tyne Daly (Cagney & Lacey). Marisa Tomei will reprise her Captain America: Civil War role as Aunt May, while Robert Downey Jr is expected to make an appearance.
In May, it was reported that Michael Keaton would play a villainous role. Keaton was originally rumoured to be joining the cast earlier this year, but initial talks stalled. As THR notes, Marvel looked at other actors before returning to Keaton.
The film is a co-production between Marvel and Sony, and in a recent interview with IGN, Sony boss Tom Rothman spoke about the meaning of the film's title. "It's relevant to the story because it takes place in high school and there is a scene at a homecoming dance," he said. "I've actually seen the dailies of it because we already did the high school shooting of it in the first couple weeks. It's fantastic! But it's also a homecoming to Marvel. And a homecoming to the cinematic universe that Spider-Man belongs in.
"So it's a pretty unprecedented deal between two studios, but we're really proud of it. And all I can tell you is, those guys at Marvel--I think the technical term is--they know their sh*t."
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
