The standalone project, directed by John Watts, will feature the youngest Peter Parker ever, 19-year-old Tom Holland. The Brit is the third actor to play Spider-Man on the big screen in recent years, following Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. The Homecoming title for the newest installment is a nod to the customary high school dance.

“It’s obviously a high school reference and shows Peter Parker’s enduring conflict — saving the world and getting your homework done,” Sony Pictures Motion Picture Chairman Tom Rothman said on stage at CinemaCon, according to Vanity Fair. It’s also a subtle wink to Spider-Man’s return to the Marvel universe.

In case you need a refresher: The rights to Spider-Man and all the characters associated with him were licensed to Sony, but last year the company struck a deal to share the character with Marvel Studios in exchange for getting a deadline extension to produce the new film.

This also means Spidey will be interacting with other beloved superheroes! Rothman and Holland revealed a clip at the Vegas event that teased a Spider-Man and Iron Man crossover. The video showed Parker coming home from school to discover his Aunt May (played by Marisa Tomei) sitting on the couch and talking with Iron Man’s alter-ego Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.).
