‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Trilogy May Be Set Entirely In High School

Spider-Man Homecoming
Spider-Man: Homecoming has officially put Peter Parker back in high school, and according to Tom Holland, it’s sounding as though the movie is going to keep him there for an entire trilogy.

Screen Rant asked Tom Holland about the future of the planned trilogy when they visited the set of the film last year. Unsurprisingly, Peter Parker’s trajectory as a character seems to be exactly what many fans have expected all along – he’ll be spending a trilogy of movies in high school before moving on to bigger and better things.

“I’m sure that is the formula they’re going to take. Peter is 15 in this movie, and that would make him in grade… ten? And yeah I see him graduating towards the last movie.”

After recent, erroneous reports over a statement that suggested that Spider-Man could be dropping out of the MCU after Homecoming‘s sequel, it’s reassuring to hear that Marvel and Sony fully intend to have an entire trilogy that covers Peter’s high school years in a single continuity. This is also consistent with producer Kevin Feige’s earlier suggestion that the movies will follow the Harry Potter formula and cover the story a year at a time, along with the fact that Tom Holland has a six-movie contract with Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios.

Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017. The film features a cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Robert Downey Junior as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Zendaya Coleman as Michelle, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Tony Revolori as “Flash” Thompson, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Jon Favreau as Harold “Happy” Hogan, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes (Vulture), Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz (Shocker), and Michael Chernus as Phineas Mason (Tinkerer). A sequel is planned for release on July 5, 2019.

    Peter Parker is 15, i thought he was a high school senior?
    Does that mean Tony recruited a 14 years old to fight Captain America?
    The next 2 films should be on college, not high school.

      If he’s 15, then he’d be a sophomore. As far as I can tell, he was 15 during Captain America: Civil War as well. He was 14 when he started fighting crime, though – as evident by his Ant-Man “cameo”.

      I’d personally love to see Peter’s college years as well, but I think that the high school aspect is something that’s been underexplored. We only saw it for a third of SM1, barely touched upon it in TASM1 and much less in TASM2.
