Whilst principal photography has been completed for Marvel Studios’/Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, work has now moved into post-production for the 2017 film. And judging by this video posted by director Jon Watts on Instagram, it appears that the production team have brought in star Tom Holland for a little overtime.
In the video, which appears to be focussing on a motion capture/facial recognition camera, Holland is filmed demonstrating an array of expressions and movements under the watchful eye of director Watts. This will allow the effects team to reflect Holland’s likeness more accurately onto the CG versions of Spider-Man we see on-screen. Spider-Man’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War was predominantly CG. So it’s no surprise that the team on Homecoming are utilising this technology, as well as practical stunt work as we’ve seen in set pictures. And we’re hoping this will help to bring us the boldest and best Spidey they can.
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, a young Peter Parker/Spider-Man begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero. The film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr, Zendaya, Bokeem Woodbine and Angourie Rice. It will be released on July 7th 2017 in the United Kingdom and the United States.
