Film Notables (Awards, Facts, etc.)

This fantasy sci-fi superhero film was integrated into the established films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) franchise - it was the 16th film in the series. It was also the second Spider-Man reboot (director Marc Webb's films were the first reboot), marking it as the third solo Spider-Man franchise in 15 years.

In February 2015, Marvel Studios and Sony reached a deal to share the character rights of Spider-Man, integrating the character into the established MCU. Now, Spidey as a character with a supporting cast could appear in both major Marvel and Sony projects. Because the film was part of the MCU, it could incorporate the characters of Tony Stark / Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) and Steve Rogers / Captain America (Chris Evans).

The Spider-Man character (portrayed by Tom Holland) first appeared in the 13th MCU film, Captain America: Civil War (2016). A sequel was planned for the year 2019 (to be determined).

The film's tagline: Homework can wait. The city can't.

Academy Award Nominations: (none). The film won three Teen Choice Awards: Choice Summer Movie, Choice Summer Movie Star (male) (Tom Holland), and Choice Summer Movie Star (female) (Zendaya).

Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield (previous Spider-Mans) were replaced by the third big-screen incarnation of the title character - a new Spider-Man/Peter Parker actor - Tom Holland. This was the youngest Peter Parker yet. At just 15 years old in this coming-of-age superhero tale, he fought against his main foe, the Vulture (Adrian Toomes) (Michael Keaton), and two Shockers (Logan Marshall-Green and Bokeem Woodbine). The Aunt May Parker character was much younger (portrayed by Marisa Tomei rather than Sally Field), while the Uncle Ben character was basically non-existent.

With a production budget of $175 million, and box-office gross receipts of $334.2 million (domestic) and $880.2 million (worldwide). In its relation to the other films in the Spider-Man franchise, it ranked fourth out of the six films in terms of domestic box-office revenues. In comparison to the first 16 films in the MCU franchise, it ranked sixth of terms of box-office (domestic).
