According to a press release, Holland snagged the iconic role after several screen tests and meetings. Producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal were also fans of his work in The Impossible (2012), the acclaimed BBC TV miniseries Wolf Hall, and the upcoming drama In the Heart of the Sea.

For their part, everyone involved appears to be really excited: "Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we’ve found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man’s story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe," Pascal said in a statement.

Feige added: "As with James Gunn, Joss Whedon, and the Russo brothers, we love finding new and exciting voices to bring these characters to life. We spent a lot of time with Jon and find his take and work inspiring."

Holland took to Twitter to express his excitement: "As a man who, in his time, has played the Dane, I'm thrilled at the new course my acting career is taking #Spiderman."

The movie is set to hit theaters on July 28, 2017. There haven't been any other cast releases.
