Spider-Man’s debut in the latest Captain America: Civil War trailer was an incredibly modern take on the wise-cracking webslinger. His costume was both more vibrant and more mechanical than it’s been portrayed in past films, and Tom Holland’s brief appearance left audiences wanting more.
That said, it looks like Marvel and Sony are taking it way way back when it comes to Holland’s first solo ride as Spider-Man. Last night at CinemaCon, the companies jointly announced Spider-Man: Homecoming, a new film with a meta title and a retro logo that looks like it jumped straight out of the silver age.
The new movie will be directed by Jon Watts, who previously directed Clown and Cop Car. Academy Award-winning actress Marisa Tomei is slated to play Aunt May, which means it’s time for another re-watch of My Cousin Vinny.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will hit theaters on July 7th, 2017.
