"I'm thrilled to be producing the '2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards' and the 'Lip Sync Battle' lead in," said Casey Patterson, Executive Producer of the '2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards and 'Lip Sync Battle. "I'm so excited that 'Lip Sync Battle' will be coming to MTV for the first time with a big exclusive Spider-Man Battle with Zendaya and Tom Holland in his American TV debut. Tom's performance is epic!"

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in "Captain America: Civil War," begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in "Spider-Man: Homecoming." Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine - distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man - but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly with Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" is directed by Jon Watts. The screenplay is by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley and Jon Watts & Christopher Ford and Chris Mckenna & Erik Sommers, from a Screen Story by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The film is produced by Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal and executive produced by Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Jeremy Latcham and Stan Lee.

The "2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards" will serve as the ultimate celebration of the best stories, actors and characters for the MTV audience. Breakout horror film, "Get Out," leads the pack with six nominations, along with "Beauty and the Beast" and "Stranger Things" with four. While fan favorite categories like Best Kiss, Best Hero, Best Villain and more remain, MTV has broken THE DIVIDE between film, television and streaming series, instead nominating the best performances no matter the screen. Also for the first time, the former Best Actor and Best Actress categories have been replaced with non-gendered Best Actor in a Movie and Best Actor in a Show. Best Fight has been modernized to Best Fight the System reflecting the audience's increasing awareness and activism around broader social justice issues. In addition, MTV introduced Best American Story, Tearjerker, Best Host, Best Reality Competition and Next Generation.
