On February 9, 2015, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios announced that Spider-Man will appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the character appearing in a Marvel Cinematic Universe film and Sony releasing a Spider-Man film co-produced by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal on July 28, 2017, with Sony Pictures continuing to own, finance, distribute, and having final creative control of the Spider-Man films.[3] Reports indicated that the MCU film Spider-Man would appear in as part of the deal would be Captain America: Civil War.[4][5] In March 2015, Marvel Comics COO Joe Quesada indicated that the Peter Parker version of the character would be used,[6] which was confirmed by Feige in April.[7]

In April 2015, Feige said that the reboot will have no origin story, and would take inspiration from Batman Begins, as it will stay true to the spirit of the character while still having a different tone from previous incarnations.[8] He also revealed that Marvel had been working to add Spider-Man to the MCU since at least October 2014, when they announced their full slate of Phase Three films, saying, "Marvel doesn't announce anything officially until it's set in stone. So we went forward with that Plan A in October, with the Plan B being, if [the deal] were to happen with Sony, how it would all shift. We've been thinking about [the Spider-Man film] as long as we've been thinking about Phase Three."[9]

In early May 2015, Jonathan Levine, Ted Melfi, Jason Moore, John Francis Daley & Jonathan M. Goldstein and Jared Hess, were being considered to direct the film.[10] By the end of the month, Asa Butterfield, Tom Holland, Judah Lewis, Matthew Lintz, Charlie Plummer and Charlie Rowe screen tested for the role. The six were chosen out of a search of over 1,500 actors to test in front of Feige, Pascal and the Russo brothers, directors of Captain America: Civil War, with a casting expected by early June 2015.[11] Other actors reportedly under consideration included: Dylan O'Brien; Logan Lerman; Nat Wolff; Timothée Chalamet; and Liam James.[12][13] By June 2015, Levine and Melfi became the favorites to the direct the film, with Daley, Goldstein and Jon Watts also in consideration.[14] Later in the month, it was reported that Butterfield was no longer in consideration for the role of Spider-Man, and that Holland, Plummer, Lintz and Rowe remained in contention, with Holland considered the favorite.[15] On June 23, Marvel and Sony officially confirmed that Holland will star as Spider-Man and that Jon Watts will direct the film.[16] In April 2016, Michael Keaton dropped the role for the villain. Towards the end of the month, Robert Downey Jr. confirmed to reprise his role as Tony Stark / Iron Man.
