With Peter Parker returning to high-school age in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and played by Tom Holland, director Jon Watts and his team have been rounding up young actors to fill out his world in addition to some big names. Michael Barbieri is the latest person added to the list.

Homecoming, scripted by Vacation's John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, is a joint project between Sony and Marvel Studios, and will find Peter dealing with his post-Civil War world. He's back in Queens and must juggle the stresses and strains of high school and family life (alongside Marisa Tomei's Aunt May) and battling some bigger threats.

The film is skipping the usual origin story (as hinted at in his scene with Tony Stark in the latest Marvel film), and will instead focus on him really trying to master his abilities. He'll have some help from Stark, as Robert Downey Jr. is on board to appear, and will face problems from a villain still shrouded in mystery (though expected to be the Vulture), played by Michael Keaton.

Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier and singer/actress Zendaya are all part of the film, which will be out on July 7 next year. This marks the second big franchise film Barbieri has landed, as he's also part of the cast for The Dark Tower.
