It’s here and it is spectacular! The first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer has officially dropped and it is pretty magnificent. Sony had it’s work cut out for it after the mess that was The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but after joining forces with Marvel and the success of Civil War it seemed to making all the right moves. Andrew Garfield was a fantastic web slinger, but Tom Holland marks the first time someone under 30 plays the high schooler so thats a big plus.
Check out the trailer here!
The trailer is delightful. There is no other word to describe it than that. Tom Holland seems to have pegged the character to a T with the quick wit and nerdy sensibilities. We get a glimpse into the story, as peter is navigating the new superhero life with mentor Tony Stark in tow. We also get our first look at Michael Keaton and Vulture as the antagonist. This feels very much like it resides in the Marvel universe but still manages to have it’s own unique spin. The high school scenes don’t exactly scream of John Hughes, but that would be tough to discern from a 2 minute trailer. This promises to be a ton of fun, and we cannot wait for this movie!
Here is the official synopsis:
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. Directed by Jon Watts. Produced by Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal. Screenplay by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley and Jon Watts & Christopher Ford and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, Based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
