Via a press release at Marvel.com, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have announced that they've found their next Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. It's Tom Holland, the 19-year-old British actor best known as one of the stars of The Impossible. The studios also announced they've chosen a director to make the next Spider-Man movie, and it's a surprising choice: Jon Watts, the director of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival selection Cop Car.

There had been much discussion (and rumor) about who would play the hero after Marvel made a deal with Sony in February to bring Spider-Man to the cinematic universe that includes Iron Man, Captain America, and the rest of the Avengers.

Holland is not a well known actor, having starred in films like "The Impossible" and the TV mini-series "Wolf Hall."

But it was Holland's acting that set him apart from many who were vying for the iconic role.

"Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we've found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man's story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe," producer Amy Pascal said in a statement.

Holland is the third actor to don the webbed costume after Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

The Spider-Man franchise is one of the biggest in Hollywood bringing in roughly $4 billion worldwide.

Sony and Marvel also announced that Holland's first standalone film as the wall-crawler will be directed by Jon Watts.

Holland was confirmed to play the web-slinger in the standalone "Spider-Man" film and be a part of ensemble cast in "Captain America: Civil War" in June. He will be reportedly seen as a school going Peter Parker in the next installment of the $4 billion "Spider-Man" franchise set for July 28, 2017 released.

Lots more on this story to come. In the meantime, here's the full press release:

"Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are proud to announce that after a full worldwide casting search, Tom Holland will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the next Spider-Man film, in theaters in IMAX and 3D on July 28, 2017. The film will be directed by Jon Watts, director of "Cop Car," the upcoming thriller that made its debut earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.

Marvel and Sony Pictures, and producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal conducted an extensive search for both the actor and the director. The studios and producers were impressed by Holland's performances in "The Impossible," "Wolf Hall," and the upcoming "In the Heart of the Sea," and by a series of complex screen tests. Following Marvel's tradition of working with the brightest next wave of directors, Watts also went through multiple meetings with Feige, Pascal, and the studio, before winning the job.

Commenting on the announcement, Tom Rothman, Sony Pictures Motion Pictures Group Chairman, said, "It's a big day here at Sony. Kevin, Amy and their teams have done an incredible job. The Marvel process is very thorough, and that's why their results are so outstanding. I'm confident Spider-Man will be no exception. I've worked with a number of up-and-coming directors who have gone on to be superstars and believe that Jon is just such an outstanding talent. For Spidey himself, we saw many terrific young actors, but Tom's screen tests were special. All in all, we are off to a roaring start."

Feige commented, "As with James Gunn, Joss Whedon, and the Russo brothers, we love finding new and exciting voices to bring these characters to life. We spent a lot of time with Jon and find his take and work inspiring."

Pascal added, "Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we've found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man's story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe."

Sony Pictures will finance and release worldwide the next installment of the $4 billion Spider-Man franchise on July 28, 2017, in a film co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the Web-Slinger.

Spider-Man, embraced all over the world, is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide."
