Jon Watts directs the superhero reboot, starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Tony Revolori, Donald Glover and Jon Favreau. Robert Downey Jr. also appears as Tony Stark/Iron Man, and the villain Vulture is played by Michael Keaton. Unlike previous movies, Homecoming centers on Peter Parker in high school and showcases his youth and innocence.

“You’ve seen the billionaire, the scientist, the soldier. Now it’s time to see the kid,” he told THR. “Every decision we make on set is based off how would a kid react in this situation, so every fight scene we have is designed in a way that’s almost child-friendly, so he never actually punches anyone.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming is Holland’s first starring role on the big screen. The young British actor first made an impression for playing Billy Elliot on the West End for three years, and later played supporting roles in J.A. Bayona’s The Impossible, Robert Zemeckis’ The Lost City of Z and Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea. He nabbed the role after a stunt-filled audition tape and learned that he got the part via Instagram.
