Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first Spider-Man solo movie to take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has completed principal photography in Atlanta.
The movie, which stars Tom Holland (who first appeared as Spider-Man earlier this year in Captain America: Civil War) was primarily filmed in the city, known for temperate weather, a diverse landscape and tax incentives to encourage production.
No official announcement has been made that the film will shoot elsewhere, although it was suggested at Comic Con International: San Diego that they would likely end up doing a small amount of production in New York, where the story is set.
Members of the cast took to social media to bid the city farewell as they departed late last night/early this morning.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will feature the teenaged wallcrawler deal with the perils of high school on top of battling supervillains and being a superhero in New York. Tom Holland will reprise his role as Peter Parker, while Michael Keaton has been tapped to play the Vulture, one of several villains who will allegedly appear in the film. Also appearing in the movie is Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier and Tony Revolori. Robert Downey Jr. and Marisa Tomei will also reprise their Captain America: Civil War roles as Tony Stark and Aunt May. Recently it was revealed that Iron Man director Jon Favreau would reprise his role as Happy Hogan.
The film is currently filming in Atlanta and has an expected release date of July 7, 20170comments
