The internet was unsure of Holland, since his age and credibility couldn't stack up to mega star and seasonal acting vet. Andrew Garfield. Then after the success and praise of Holland in Marvels, "Captain America: Civil War", everyone was on board.

How did this all come to be?

With the failed franchise of Sonys "Spider-Man" after two reboots, Sony was hesitant about selling the rights of Spider-Man back to Marvel. They had a multi-film plan for Spider-Man dealing with the Sinister Six, in which they dropped major clues.

Knowing the success of the Marvel movies, Sony wanted to make sure that they could get a piece of the pie if they sold the franchise back to Marvel. After talks and negotiations, Marvels Kevin Feige announced that Spider-Man has came home. But in order for him to come back to Marvel, Feige and Sonys Amy Pascal, came to the agreement that Sony will have creative input for Spidey. "I am thrilled to team up with my friends at Sony Pictures," says Feige. "Along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man movie. Amy has been deeply involved in the realization on film with one of the world's most beloved characters.

So what does this mean now for the future of 'Spider-Man'?

Feige has also stated that there are plans for Spider-Man to have more stand alone films in the future, that he promises fans will not be disappointed.
