Meet the new Spider-Man
Best known for his work in the film The Impossible and the TV miniseries Wolf Hall, the 19-year-old actor will play the comic-book icon in a movie scheduled to open in theaters July 28, 2017.
The film will be helmed by Cop Car director Jon Watts.
"It's a big day here at Sony. Kevin [Feige,] Amy [Pascal] and their teams have done an incredible job. The Marvel process is very thorough, and that's why their results are so outstanding," Tom Rothman, Sony Pictures Motion Pictures Group Chairman, said in a statement.
“I'm confident Spider-Man will be no exception. I've worked with a number of up-and-coming directors who have gone on to be superstars and believe that Jon is just such an outstanding talent. For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom's screen tests were special. All in all, we are off to a roaring start.
"As with James Gunn, Joss Whedon, and the Russo brothers, we love finding new and exciting voices to bring these characters to life. We spent a lot of time with Jon and find his take and work inspiring," producer Feige added.
Andrew Garfield, now 31, played the titular, teen webslinger in the past two Spider-Man blockbusters.
