Following five Sony-produced movies featuring two entirely different people portraying Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield), the new Spiderman movie is finally in the care of Marvel Studios. And now, they're ready to create an impact in the future storyline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Our web-slinging hero made his first MCU debut as part of Team Iron Man in "Captain America: Civil War." Now, he is more than ready for his first major starring role in his solo MCU movie, "Spiderman: Homecoming."
Let's get on with the interesting details we know so far.
Two new MCU movies will be hitting theaters in 2017 - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok. But it looks like the deal between Sony Picture and Marvel Studios will pave way for the very first year to have three MCU films shown in one calendar year. Spiderman: Homecoming was originally set for release on July 28th 2017 but it seems like Spiderman will be officially swinging on theaters at an earlier date, July 7th.
There's still no official word from MPAA about Spiderman: Homecoming's movie rating. However, CEO Bob Iger of Walt Disney Company mentioned on a Twitter post that, "We don't have any plans to make R-rated Marvel movies." So fans can expect the film to be rated PG-13.
