Spider-Man: Homecoming (opens in new tab) won't arrive until summer, but Marvel and Sony have already confirmed that the young webslinger's second solo film will hit theaters on July 5, 2019. That puts it a few months after the untitled follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War (opens in new tab) and, er, confirms that the world won't end in the big team-up movie. But more importantly, it also secures Spider-Man actor Tom Holland's legacy as the Spider-Manliest of them all.

Not sure what I mean? Let's consult the Spider-Man cinematic portrayal scoreboard:

 Nicholas Hammond

  • Spider-Man (1977)
  • Spider-Man Strikes Back (1978)
  • Spider-Man: The Dragon's Challenge (1979)

These were made-for-TV movie edits of the '70s Amazing Spider-Man show, but they still count, dammit.

Tobey Maguire

  • Spider-Man (2002)
  • Spider-Man 2 (2004)
  • Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Andrew Garfield

  • The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

Tom Holland

  • Captain America: Civil War (opens in new tab) (2016)
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
  • Avengers: Infinity War (2018) - Unconfirmed, but c'mon
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 (2019)

Yep, that's four cinematic Spider-Man appearances for Holland, working off the pretty safe assumption that he'll show up in at least Avengers: Infinity War or its sequel. Failing that and he'll still tie Hammond and Maguire with three. Then he'll win the tiebreaker round as the only Spider-Man actor to ever actually look like a teen.

Directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei and Donald Glover, Spider-Man: Homecoming will hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
