After recently joining the cast of Sony’s adaptation of , 14-year-old Michael Barbieri books another huge film, this time in hotly anticipated Marvel reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming. Barbieri only just hit Hollywood’s star-radar after breaking out in Sundance 2016’s debut of Ira Sach’s Little Men alongside Theo Taplitz as two best friends who get dragged in their parents’ battle over a NYC lease.
After Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man quickly becoming a fan-favorite Marvel depiction in Captain America: Civil War, any news of his own standalone film is hotly anticipated. Scripted by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, we don’t much about what to expect from this third cinematic reimagining of the beloved web-head except that Peter Parker is trying to figure out who he is and where he belongs in a world of villains and superheroes. Where Barbieri’s character fits into Parker’s adventure remains to be seen.
With some practice in The Dark Tower, acting beside big names like Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, Barbieri should be plenty rehearsed for the maelstrom which is Marvel-level fame.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to release July 7, 2017 and thus far also stars Michael Keaton, Marissa Tomei, Zendaya and Robert Downey Jr.
