Spider-Man Is Coming to Theaters a Few Weeks Sooner
Here's something to make up for Star Wars Episode VIII Star Wars: Episode VIII Delayed Until December 2017" href="http://www.outerplaces.com/science-fiction/item/10977-star-wars-episode-viii-delayed-until-december-2017" target="_blank">pushing off its release date. The highly anticipated Marvel/Sony Spider-Man movie is coming to theaters a little earlier than expected, as its release date has been shifted from July 28, 2017 to July 7, 2017.

The news comes along with a new release date for the Jumanji remake, which is also produced by Sony. It has been pushed from its original Christmas 2016 release date to Spider-Man's original release date, July 28. I can only imagine it's because this is a mess of an idea (and I say that as a fan of the original Jumanji), but that's a topic for another time.

Spider-Man stars Tom Holland as a younger version of Peter Parker than we've seen in recent years, who will make his debut in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. The film will be a coming-of-age story in the vein of Marvel's answer to a John Hughes flick, and will (finally) not feature an origin story for the character. (Spoiler alert: Uncle Ben dies.) The film will be directed by Jon Watts from a screenplay by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, and will co-star Marisa Tomei as Aunt May.
