Spider-Man: Tom Holland (The Impossible) is New Peter Parker

Marvel and Sony have found their Peter Parker.  Tom Holland (“The Impossible”) is set to play the web-slinging superhero in the next “Spider-Man” franchise.

Jon Watts (“Cop Car”) will direct the film.

“I’ve worked with a number of up-and-coming directors who have gone on to be superstars and believe that Jon is just such an outstanding talent,” Tom Rothman, Sony Pictures chair, said in a press release. “For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom’s screen tests were special.  We are off to a roaring start.”

The actor is first expected to make an appearance in “Captain America: Civil War” in order to properly introduce him into the Marvel film universe, with standalone films to follow.

Former Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal is producing along with Kevin Feige.

Holland will be seen next in “In the Heart of the Sea,” opposite Chris Hemsworth.
