Marvel and Sony have confirmed Tom Holland as the new face of Peter Parker a.k.a. the amazing Spider-Man. The announcement was made after months of rumours surrounding the casting of the new actor that will play the popular superhero. 

According to the announcement, the new film will be directed by Jon Watts and arrive in theaters in IMAX and 3D on July 28, 2017.

The statement reads:  

"Marvel and Sony Pictures, and producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal conducted an extensive search for both the actor and the director.  The studios and producers were impressed by Holland’s performances in "The Impossible," “Wolf Hall,” and the upcoming "In the Heart of the Sea," and by a series of complex screen tests."

The 19 year old actor is best know for his unforgettable role in "The Impossible" and will also appear alongside Chris Hemsworth on Ron Howard´s upcoming film "In the Heart of the Sea".
Coincidentally, just 500 days ago Holland tweeted a photo of his arm showing a new temporary tattoo with an image of a spider he had on his arm.

No word yet on the possibility of the web slinger appearing in the upcoming "Civil War" film which is currently in the middle of shooting but we´ll keep you posted.
