Spider-Man: Homecoming Director Celebrates Film Wrapping

Earlier this summer, Spider-Man: Homecoming kicked off production in Atlanta to the delight of fans - and now it's over. The superhero flick just wrapped in New York, and director Jon Watts is celebrating the milestone on Instagram with his followers.

Watts shared a short video to commemorate the end of Homecoming. The footage shows a white balloon with a crudely drawn Spider-Man adorning it. Some fast-paced background music beats away in the background as Watts turns the balloon to show fans a message which reads, "That's a wrap!" He then lets the balloon go, allowing fans to see its blue-and-red streamers as it flies up into the sky. It passes by a busy subway car before hitting a bridge and finally floating away.

Of course, fans are now wondering when they will see footage from the much-anticipated film. Many are hoping the reveal comes sooner rather than later. When The Amazing Spider-Man was slated for a July 2012 release, a trailer for the film came out in November 2011, so fans are hoping Marvel Studios will graciously tease them with footage in a few weeks.

Homecoming, which began shooting in June, finished its production schedule in Atlanta at the end of September. Tom Holland posted a photo online to mark the occasion, saying that "It's been real." At the time, there was no official confirmation that Homecoming would go on to shoot elsewhere, but sources speculated the film would head north to film in New York.

Unsurprisingly, those rumors proved true. Photos and videos of Holland surfaced online as Homecoming took production to the streets of New York. Scenes were filmed in various locations around Queens like subway stations and alleyways where fans snapped shots of Holland dressed at Peter Parker.

Yesterday, the actor took to Instagram yet again to celebrate the end of filming. Holland shared a photo of him and his co-stars napping on a plane and wrote, "last day on [Spider-Man: Homecoming] and this how we are feeling but we got this."

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Marvel Studios' Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The cast features Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea), Michael Keaton (Batman, Birdman), Zendaya (K.C. Undercover), Donald Glover (The Martian, Community), Jacob Batalon (North Woods), Laura Harrier (One Life to Live), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Tyne Daly (Cagney and Lacey), Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo), with Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny, The Wrestler), and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, The Avengers). It also includes Martin Starr (Silicon Valley), Kenneth Choi (The People vs. O.J. Simpson), Michael Mando (Better Call Saul), Selenis Leyva (Orange is the New Black), Isabella Amara (The Boss), Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. (Graceland), JJ Totah (Liv and Maddie), and Hannibal Buress (30 Rock).
