Everyone’s favorite web slinger is back after getting our first taste of the wall-crawler in Captain America: Civil War. Here it is, our first real good look at the new stand alone Spider-Man movie.
Spider-Man Homecoming stars Tom Holland as the iconic web-head as well as Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Zendaya as Peter’s high school crush Liz, and Michael Keaton as The Vulture. Also, making a guest appearance is Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark.
The film is directed by Jon Watts who’s best known work to date is 2015’s Cop Car. Watts has stated in many interviews that in this new Spider-Man movie he would be going for a “John Hughes” feel. For those who don’t know what that means check out Hughes’ best work in Ferris Bueller’s Day off and The Breakfast Club.
After watching this trailer I can deffinetly feel the John Hughes vibes coming through. However, it still feels like a Spider-Man movie. And that is enough to get me excited.
This trailer not only gives us a first look at Sony’s new Spider-Man film, but it also lays to rest all of the rumors and speculation round who Zendaya would be playing.
Back in August there were many sites claiming that she would be the iconic Peter Parker love interest Marry Jane. Due to Zendaya not being a natural redhead, this brought up lots of controversy. You can see my post on the matter here.
After watching the trailer we do get a really quick look at Zendaya’s character as she calls out Peter for being creepy. We still do not have a name for the character, however, it should be a safe assumption that she will not be the girl-next-door Marry Jane.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is still set for a release date of July 7th, 2017. After seeing this trailer, I can not wait.
