'Spider-Man Homecoming 2' will be released on July 5, 2019, two years after the first movie in the new franchise

'Spider-Man Homecoming 2' will be released on July 5, 2019.

Although 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' won't be out until July 7, 2017, Sony has already decided on a release date for the sequel and star Tom Holland has signed up for three movies.

Speaking about the Marvel franchise, he previously said: "I do know I have three Spider-Man movies and three solo movies contracted. But if you have another movie, Marvel is so good at working around it. They're very respectful of your life, really. They understand that you have to work on other movies, and they try and fix it up so you can work around each other."

Meanwhile, Tom previously revealed he found out he got the part of Spider-Man via Instagram.

Asked how he learnt he had the job, he said: "I was in my bed scrolling through Instagram. It had been about a month since my audition. And Marvel just posted a photo saying go to our website and find out who the next Spider-Man is. I went on the Marvel website on my computer and there it was: The new Spider-Man is Tom Holland. I went ballistic, like absolutely nuts."

Tom has already portrayed Spider-Man in 'Captain America: Civil War', but says this time they've decided to make the fight scenes "child-friendly".

He said: "You've seen the billionaire, the scientist, the soldier. Now it's time to see the kid. And every decision we make on set is based off how would a kid react in this situation, so every fight scene we have is designed in a way that's almost child-friendly, so he never actually punches anyone. It's all done kind of by accident. I think the biggest difference is his youth and innocence."
