Spider-Man Takes A Homecoming Selfie To Celebrate A Special Day

Today marks a special day for Spider-Man, as we are now officially one year out from the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming - the first solo Spidey movie set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With so much time left to wait, it will probably still be a few months before any footage is officially released, but Tom Holland has celebrated the specialness of today by delivering a fun on-set selfie:

Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently in production down in Atlanta, Georgia, and star Tom Holland (who is presumably under that mask), took this Instagram photo while presumably either doing some wall-crawling or web-swinging. Either way, it's awesome, and a wonderful treat to share with so much time left before any official stills will be posted.

Of course, because we got to see Spider-Man in action -- and in the same costume -- in Captain America: Civil War, there isn't too much surprising or revealing about this photo. It does give us a nice look at the mechanical web shooters that Tony Stark designed for the young hero -- and it looks like a comfy apparatus. It's also possible that some of the people on the ground are Tom Holland's Spider-Man: Homecoming co-stars, but it's pretty hard to tell because they are so out of focus.

Based on a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, Spider-Man: Homecoming will follow the titular hero as he balances life as a high school student and a masked vigilante -- but all plot details beyond that are being kept hush-hush for now. The supporting cast assembled in the movie is absolutely fantastic, with Tom Holland being joined by Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Logan Marshall-Green, Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Angourie Rice, Hannibal Buress, Tony Revolori, Bokeem Woodbine, and more. It's one of three Marvel Studios movies coming out in 2017 -- coming after James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and before Thor: Ragnarok - but it's also one of our most anticipated of the entire year.

With one year left until Spider-Man: Homecoming's release date, when can we expect to see more from the movie? Well, the sad truth is that the first trailer probably won't come out until December. That being said, there is a big event coming up soon that could feature interesting goings-on for the project: San Diego Comic-Con. The full schedule for the annual convention hasn't been announced just yet, but it's possible that one of the days could reward attending fans with an early look at the new Spider-Man film. Given that we will have a full team on the ground, we'd recommend staying tuned here in the next couple weeks for our coverage!
