In this smash-hit reboot of Spiderman for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we follow Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as he starts out as Spiderman. In New York, following the events of The Avengers in 2012, Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) is contracted to clean up the city. 

He soon discovers heaps of alien technology amongst the rubble, and uses it for his own nefarious gain – rebranding as ‘Vulture’. Peter finds himself balancing the role of Spiderman and fighting the daunting threat of vulture, whilst also trying to work out how to ask a date out to their homecoming dance… it’s a sticky situation.

Also starring Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marisa Tomei and Donald Glover.
