‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Kicks Off Production

It looks like Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming has finally began filming at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 writer and director James Gunn broke the news on his personal Facebook page earlier today by sharing an image of him, Chris Pratt and Tom Holland with the following caption:

“Many blessings today to the star of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tom Holland, and the film’s director Jon Watts, as they begin their shoot in Atlanta just as we are ending ours. I don’t think we could pass the Marvel baton to two nicer, better guys who care more about what they’re doing. Kill it!”

Spider-Man: Homecoming recently added three newcomers to its massive cast. The movie will also star Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, Michael Barbieri, Kenneth Choi and Martin Starr. Prometheus actor Logan Marshall-Green is also in talks to join the ensemble as a villain.

Holland made his debut as the web-slinger earlier this year in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. He will once again return to the big screen in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is currently scheduled to hit theaters on July 7, 2017. Are you excited?
