Back in December, the comic book world was set ablaze when talk of Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe started doing the rounds. And the wishes of many comic book geeks came true when this was officially confirmed by Sony and Marvel in a deal that would see the web-slinger making his debut in a MCU movie before getting his solo reboot film set in the MCU later in 2017.
By the time the deal was finalized though, the script and plan for [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) was already in place with Black Panther supposedly up for the position that Spidey takes in the Civil War comic storyline. This only left open the possibility of Spidey having a cameo of sorts in the upcoming Civil War movie.
Reportedly, filming for that cameo has been completed. Recently, Tom Holland was cast as the third Spider-Man to grace the big screen and tested with the cast of Civil War as well. His cameo is now done and the Spider-Man reboot writers Jonathan M. Goldstein and John Francis Daley are now awaiting their first look at Spider's footage to take some cues from it which they will use in writing their own version of Spidey's reboot. The reboot, as has been reported, will stay away from Peter Parker's traditional origin story that has been told on screen twice and will instead head in a new direction, focusing more on Peter's high school years and his struggles in balancing schooling and superheroism.
Captain America: Civil War is due out for release on May 6, 2016 and the new Spider-Man movie is currently set to be released on June 2017.
