Sony has shifted the release dates for its upcoming reboots of “Spider-Man” and “Jumanji.”

The studio has moved up the release of “Spider-Man” from July 28, 2017 to July 7, 2017. The live-action movie from Jon Watts — a collaboration with Marvel — stars Tom Holland as the young webslinger and Marisa Tomei as his aunt May.

Sources say the shoot was pushed back a month so a polish could be given to the script before production started.

The date was just vacated by Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” which will now bow on May 26, 2017.

“Jumanji” will be pushed back from Christmas Day 2016 into the now open weekend of July 28, 2017 — previously occupied by the superhero tentpole. The film is currently the only title slated for that date.

Jake Kasdan recently signed on to direct the remake of the 1995 movie starring Robin Williams — adapted from Chris Van Allsburg’s Caldecott Medal-winning book. Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner are writing the screenplay based on a draft by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. Matt Tolmach is producing the pic.

    Why it cut my comment, i dont know. But yes, for all those living under a rock. This IS a new Spider-Man, tent pole of the marvel universe, who will now be apart of the marvel cinematic universe and he will already have his powers when we first see him in civil war..

    Okay, stop right there. We do NOT need another Spider-man movie! Enough is enough. Let it rest.

    I hate to say this, but I’ve had enough of Spider-man in all his forms. His comics(which I used to love) and I didn’t mind see the movies. The movies are tired and they ruined that comic years ago. Exactly when is debatable.

  4. Jacen Alexander says:

    The new Jumanji is a remake, not a reboot. It was never a series; thus it is not being rebooted. Industry professionals like this writer should know the difference.

  5. Rob says:

    Why do we need to “re-boot” anything? Is there that much of lack of creativity in Hollywood that there has to be continual run of remakes and re-boots?

    • Silas says:

      Well in this case there is a slightly better reason than usual, which is that it introduces the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, opening up new storytelling possibilities.

    Boy! How are they gonna reboot Spiderman? When are they gonna get past the kid becoming Spiderman???

    • Yahya says:

      It’s not a reboot. This incarnation is after the spider-bite and he already has been Spider-Man for quite a while when the movie begins.

      • Silas says:

        It is a reboot, but they’re skipping the origin story. The previous spider-man movies are not part of the new continuity.

    OMG!!!! ANOTHER Spider-Man??????

    • WAM says:

      “OMG!!!! ANOTHER Spider-Man??????” as quoted from Superman 2 from the owner of the diner to Clark Kent…..”Where you been living Mack?, on a Desert Island?”
