This is big news as it is the first time that Spider-Man will appear within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, due to separate ownership and distribution rights owned by the two companies. Earlier this year, they agreed to collaborate for the upcoming Civil War storyline – where Spider-man is a key player.

It has also been confirmed that Jon Watts has been attached to direct the currently unnamed film.

Making his first appearance in next year’s Captain America: Civil War, Spidey’s first solo film will swing into cinemas July 28th, 2017.
