Tiger Shroff: Spider-Man is one superhero I always wished to play

As we mentioned in another Spider-Man-related piece this morning, Downey's Iron Man won't be appearing in the film's sequel (probably because they can't afford him).

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" has a July 7, 2017 release directed by Jon Watts starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr.

The Sony Pictures film will be an "adjunct" to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to producer Amy Pascal, which seems to mean that the film will technically be connected to the MCU but not necessarily impact the events and characters of Marvel Studios films.

So, yeah. Hope you like to see superheroes using Dell computers, because you're about to get an eyeful. Who that is, we don't know, but there's a whole universe of them to choose from.

Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff will be the voice of superhero Spider-Man in the upcoming film Spider-Man Homecoming (Hindi).

A quippy, sarcastic Spider-Man dodging blows from the Jade Giant (who's annoyed beyond all measure at "Bug-Man") is a longtime staple of Marvel Comics, and would be a blast to see play out on screen. Then, Gina Prince-Bythewood will direct Silver & Black, focusing on Spidey supporting characters Silver Sable and the Black Cat.

In addition to this little tidbit, The Hollywood Report also claims that Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man, could be introduced in the Venom movie and other spin-offs in a cameo role, despite Holland only contractually obligated to appear in Spider-Man 2. THR also confirms that the one-and-only Cletus Kasady a.k.a. Carnage will indeed be the villain of the piece.

This is assuming everyone responds to Tom Holland's take on Spidey over the previous Andrew Garfield version, of course. It is definitely a different take compared to the other films that feature Spider-Man.

It is the third prominent franchise featuring Spider-Man as the main character. That character and series are firmly rooted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and those films have no intention of heading into R-rated territory.
