Following Captain America: Civil War (and maybe Doctor Strange!), Tom Holland will appear in the new standalone Spider-Man movie in 2017.

While the movie has been described as having a John Hughes-vibe, that doesn't necessarily mean on a small scale.

"Smaller scale is all relative," Marvel's Kevin Feige told Empire Magazine. "It's going to be as big and spectacular a Spider-Man film as has ever been made. But it's a Peter Parker story and has more opportunity to be focused on the story of a 15-ear-old kid going to high school."

The article further notes when we meet Tom Holland as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, Spidey is already a hero, there will be no more origin stories, and no more endless death for Uncle Ben.

"Captain America: Civil War" hits May 6, 2016; "Spider-Man" swings in July 28, 2017.
