Young actor Michael Barbieri is in negotiations with Sony and Marvel Studios to join Tom Holland in next July’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. The film is said to be a day-in-the-life of the wall-crawler as he balances school, love, and being a superhero.

Holland made splash as the new Peter Parker in last month’s Captain America: Civil War, and is now poised to lead the film which is set to start filming later this month. Barbieri is said to be playing a close friend of Peter’s in the mode of Miles Morales’ best buddy Ganke Lee.
