Comic book movie fans have been calling for Sony to let Marvel handle the fan favourite character Spider-Man, as Sony continued to give us awful Spider-Man films, while Marvel were smashing out hit after hit. Well, Sony eventually gave in and we are going to first get to see the character appearing in Captain America: Civil War, before then going on to have his own standalone movie.
We already know that British actor Tom Holland is playing the role of Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, while Marisa Tomei has been cast in the role of Aunt May. Meanwhile, there have been rumours that Disney star Zendaya had been cast in a role in the new Spider-Man reboot movie, and now the young and talented star has revealed just how hard she had to work to land the role.
Zendaya explained, "I’ve never been in a real movie before or anything like that, so I had to start from the bottom like anyone else. I auditioned and auditioned and auditioned and broke down those walls because a lot of people do have that pre-conceived notion of who I am based off previous things I’ve done, so you got to really break that down and go hard, put in the work, take all the meetings, take all the auditions. I can’t say anything else other than I’m going to be in it."
The new Spider-Man reboot movie will be directed by Jon Watts and is set to hit the big screen on July 7, 2017 in the US, before then opening in the UK on July 28, 2017.
