Well, it’s finally here. After that 17 second teaser yesterday, 14 years of being with Sony and a small amount of screen time recently, we’ve now got a full length trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming. He’s home. He’s back. Marvel has control of one of its most popular and most famous characters of all time! We had an incredible glimpse as to what Marvel can do with him in Captain America: Civil War (to the utter joy and delight of fans and critics alike) and now in just a few short months we will see him in his first ever solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Along with the teaser and the trailer, a fresh new image was released which looks very reminiscent of what is thought to be one of the best superhero movies of all time, Spiderman 2. The photo shows Tom Holland as the wall crawler holding his mask as a train whizzes by in the background. This could be a call back to the superbly choreographed fight scene on a train, with Spiderman and Doctor Octopus.
In the trailer we see Holland effortlessly play the painfully awkward teen who only has one friend, trying to get through high school, whilst also wanting to save the world as Mr. Stark tries to protect him by treating him like a kid. All Peter wants to do is prove himself and defeat The Vulture (Michael Keaton) whilst being told to “forget the flying monster guy, there are people who handle this sort of thing”. Of course Peter wants to be one of these people, he wants to be a full time Avenger. Who can blame him? He fits right in and did a good job in Civil War. The trailer ends with a shot of Spider-Man and Iron Man together, possibly on their way to fight some crime. An international trailer has also been released with a little bit more of both Holland and Keaton, but not that much. I’ve included that below as well, you lucky spider-loving freaks!
So what do you think? Have we had too much Spider-Man? Are you happy he’s back in the MCU? Is he just getting started?
Keep. It. Reel.
