Spider-Man: Homecoming Director Talks High School Setting; Tom Holland Dishes On His Peter Parker

24 July 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In hindsight, Marvel Studios’ presence at San Diego Comic-Con may not have heralded as much new footage as that of Warner Bros. – Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, King Arthur and even Justice League each enjoyed their time in the limelight – but after confirming Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and unveiling a fresh look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s good doctor, there’s still plenty for fans to chew over.

Speaking of which, many of the key players involved in Spider-Man: Homecoming were in attendance at the annual event, and IGN spoke to both Tom Holland and director Jon Watts about the finer details of Marvel’s 2017 reboot.

Report Seemingly Reveals Two New Spider-Man: Homecoming Villains As Official Synopsis Lands

24 July 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the initial back-and-forth surrounding Michael Keaton’s involvement, concept art emerging from Sdcc yesterday confirmed that, yes, the Oscar-winning star is attached to the villainous role of Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming. But he won’t be the only big bad to give Tom Holland’s wet-behind-the-ears Spidey a run for his money.

At least, that’s according to a report from the Diamond Select Toys Minimates’ Panel (via Cbm), claiming that one panelist may have accidentally revealed the identity of two new enemies that are bound for Jon Watts’ 2017 reboot.

More News From The Web

At the time of going to press, neither Sony nor Marvel offered to comment on the allegations, but should they hold true, Peter Parker will be going toe-to-toe with both Tinkerer and Shocker in little under a year’s time.

This toy panel just seemingly (accidentally?) confirmed that Vulture, Tinkerer, *and* Shocker are all in Spider-man: Homecoming. »

Michael Keaton Says Spider-Man: Homecoming Will Be “An Awful Lot Of Fun”

13 July 2016 12:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last week, the Powers That Be over at Marvel sounded the klaxon to indicate that Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jon Watts’ fresh-faced reboot that places Tom Holland in the role of the webcrawler, is exactly one year from release.

That means Homecoming is deep in production, as the waves upon waves of set photos attest, and a new snap has found its way online that features what we assume to be Holland hanging about on set. Remember, drawing on his experience as a dancer, the up-and-comer is poised to perform all his own stunts in the Marvel reboot.

In related news, Michael Keaton offered up a fleeting assessment of Spider-Man: Homecoming in an interview with Haute Living (via Cbm). It isn’t one to stop the presses, but the actor, who is all but set to play the part of the villain (Vulture?) opposite Holland, told Haute »

Sony’s Tom Rothman talks Spider-Man: Homecoming, new set photos revealed

12 July 2016 4:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As production continues on Spider-Man: Homecoming, IGN caught up with Sony chief Tom Rothman during the premiere of Ghostbusters, and managed to get a few words about the upcoming superhero reboot.

“We’re really, really fortunate on this because Marvel and Kevin Feige have really embraced the character, and nobody knows it as well as Marvel,” said Rothman. “It is another crown jewel of Sony’s for sure. [The title] is relevant to the story because it takes place in high school and there is a scene — that I guess I can give a little thing — at a homecoming dance. 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, »

Did Spider-Man: Homecoming Find Its Gwen Stacy?

6 July 2016 7:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's only been a few weeks since filming began on Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming, and already we've seen a number of set photos as production continues in Atlanta, while several more cast members have been added. Over just the past week, actors such as Abraham Attah, Garcelle Beauvais, Tiffany Espensen and Tyne Daly have signed on, although no details have been given as to who they're playing. Today we have word that the superhero adventure has brought on The Nice Guys star Angourie Rice.

Like most of the new cast members before her, no details were given about which character Angourie Rice is playing, and The Hollywood Reporter doesn't specify if she has already started filming in Atlanta quite yet. While the cast keeps growing and growing, only a few actors' characters have been confirmed, such as Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. »

1 July 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The cast of Sony and Marvel's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" just keeps on growing with three more names joining the roster - Garcelle Beauvais ("White House Down"), Tiffany Espensen ("Kirby Buckets") and the legendary Tyne Daly ("Cagney and Lacey").

As usual, all three roles are being kept under wraps. Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Abraham Attah, Zendaya, Michael Barbieri, Kenneth Choi, Tony Revolori, Marisa Tomei, Donald Glover, Martin Starr and Logan Marshall-Green also star in the film which is currently in production.

That isn't the only casting announcement made today. Another is that Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes," "Merlin") is set to star in the currently shooting "Transformers: The Last Knight". Specifics of his role in the Michael Bay-directed effort have not been disclosed.

New Zealand actor Kj Apa, who plays Archie in The CW's upcoming "Riverdale" series, has joined the cast of Andrzej Bartkowiak's indie thriller "Altar Rock" which »

Two More Actresses Join 'Spider-man: Homecoming'

1 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

You can go ahead and add two more names to the growing cast of the Sony/Marvel Studios reboot Spider-man: Homecoming. The film, which already features Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., and Zendaya, continues to add players for parts we don't yet know about. In recent weeks, Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Michael Mando, and Tyne Daly have joined the cast of Spider-man: Homecoming. This week, we've got word that Garcelle Beauvais and Tiffany Espensen have entered the fray.

Garcelle Beauvais

Tiffany Espensen

Beauvais is best known for roles in NYPD Blue and The Jamie Foxx Show, while Espensen hails from children's shows like Kirby Buckets and Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures. As was stated earlier, there's currently no word on who either actress will be playing in Spider-man: Homecoming, though, based on her age, it's probably a safe bet that Espensen goes to high school with Holland's Peter Parker. »

Will Spider-Man: Homecoming Take Peter Parker Out of New York?

30 June 2016 5:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, we showed you the first look at the official costume in Spider-Man: Homecoming, with Tom Holland spotted near what appeared to be a construction site. As is the case with most set photos, we don't get too much context of the scene we're looking at, but today we have a report that claims Tom Holland's Peter Parker may be leaving New York City in this highly-anticipated movie. If that wasn't enough, the growing cast has just added three more actors.

A report from Looper, which included the photos from earlier this week, revealed that Tom Holland was shooting two scenes that day, one being a bus scene where kids from his high school are taking a field trip to Washington D.C. The second scene, which is where the photos were taken, follows Spidey running alongside a cement truck and jumping on it. The scenes did feature Tom Holland himself, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Adds Garcelle Beauvais And Tiffany Espensen

30 June 2016 4:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yes, the Spider-Man: Homecoming casting announcements just keep on coming. To be fair, most big tentpole movies like this feature enormous casts, it’s just that in this instance, even the most minor of supporting roles are being reported on for some reason. The latest additions, Tiffany Espensen and Garcelle Beauvais, were actually spotted in and around the set of the movie already, but Deadline has now confirmed that they’ve joined the production.

The site reckons their specific roles are still under wraps, but based on the photos we’ve seen, it’s safe to assume that Beauvais (NYPD Blue, Wild Wild West) will be playing a faculty member at Peter Parker’s high-school, while Espensen (Monsterville: The Cabinet of Souls) will be a student.

The cast is definitely building impressively – but there’s still no word on who (if anyone) will play J.J. Jameson, who after being »

The Amazing Cast Of Spider-man: Homecoming Adds Garcelle Beauvais And Tiffany Espensen

30 June 2016 3:42 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Does Spider-Man: Homecoming have the biggest cast ever seen in a comic book movie? Probably not, but the trades know that Marvel + Spider-Man = clicks, so they're reporting on every single addition no matter how big or small. While their roles are predictably being kept a secret, Tiffany Espensen and Garcelle Beauvais are the latest actresses to board the highly anticipated (and extremely busy) reboot.  Espensen is a relative unknown who currently stars in Disney Xd's Kirby Buckets. She also appeared in Monsterville: The Cabinet of Souls. Beauvais meanwhile is best known for roles in The Jamie Foxx Show and NYPD Blue. Other big and small screen credits include Franklin & Bash and White House Down.  As great as all these casting additions may be, the one that the vast majority of fans want to see still hasn't happened, and that's someone to play J. Jonah Jameson. At this stage, it's unclear »

First Look at Miles Morales in Spider-Man: Homecoming?

24 June 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Could we be looking at the first ever big screen incarnation of Miles Morales in the latest Spider-Man: Homecoming set photos? Possibly. Earlier in the week, production started on Marvel and Sony's second reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. And ever since we've been inundated with images and casting updates. One of the latest cast additions has everyone speculating that Morales is about to make his debut appearance in this comic book adventure. And now said actor has appeared in costume.

But not that costume. No, Abraham Attah is seen in his high school wardrobe as he makes his way to the Midtown School of Science & Technology. Attah made his breakthrough feature film debut with last year's Netflix drama Beasts of No Nation, and as soon as he was brought forward for Homecoming, rumors began to fly that he's been cast as fan-favorite Miles Morales, who at one point in the comics takes over as Spider-Man. »
