The first trailer for the new Spider-man film has finally been released and it’s a doozie! If you’ve seen Captain America: Civil War, you’ll know it (spoiler alert!) featured a certain Peter Parker in a cameo role.
It looks like Spider-Man: Homecoming picks up after that, as the trailer features the ever-suave Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man) who seems to have adopted a kind of mentor role for Peter. I think it’s a nice overlap with the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe and will make sense to people who saw Spider-Man’s last outing.
More good news: it doesn’t look like an origin movie, so we don’t have to watch another poor elderly actor get gunned down in the street due to Peter’s negligence.
(Yes, Spider-Man’s origin includes the death of a loved one. Maybe he and Batman should start a support group or something…)
Here, Spider-Man is still at school and facing that familiar challenge of protecting his secret identity while balancing the demands of schoolwork and battling super-powered villains. Which makes for fun, fun, fun.
Tom Holland was super-excellent in Civil War and it looks like we’re getting Michael Keaton as ‘The Vulture’, so I have high hopes for Homecoming. Could this be the Spider-Man movies his fans have been waiting on for so long?
