The New Spider-Man
Some bittersweet news here. Tom Holland (from such movies as In the Heart of the Sea) has been selected to be the kid behind the new on-screen portrayal of Peter Parker, also known as Spider-Man. In addition to finally appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with such movies as Captain America: Civil War, a new stand-alone Spider-Man movie co-produced by Marvel and Sony, and Avengers: Infinity War, he will also be joined by writers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (Sam on Freaks and Geeks) and director Jon Watts (Cop Car) for the rebooted Spider-Man trilogy. The bitter part of this news is that it is now official (though it was always far-fetched) that Tobey Maguire will not be Peter Parker. He will not be returning. But don't worry. He will always be Spider-Man. Now, it's time to see what Holland can do.
