And here comes another trailer for one of our Marvel heavyweights. Our newest Spider-Man made his premiere in Captain America: Civil War, and we already knew he was going to have his own film. Hopefully, the third time is the charm, as this rendition has decided to skip any Uncle Ben tragedies. The newest trailer premiered today, so take a look!
Tom Holland captures Peter Parker’s innocence in this trailer in a way I so wanted back when the Spidey franchise first rebooted itself. On this second go around, they seem to have finally gotten it right, in my opinion, although the timeline would’ve been better for an older Spider-Man around Civil War‘s happenings. A bit of an acknowledgment from the first franchise appears with Peter holding the ship together, a la Tobey Maguire and the metro train in Spider-Man 2.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) aka Iron Man’s involvement in Peter’s life is magnified in this trailer. Like, I knew he was going to be in it, but not this much. His mentorship role is interesting here, which makes me antsy to see how it will play out. His advice could use more work, though, the phrase “don’t do anything stupid” coming from Tony’s mouth is wise, but oh-so-hypocritical.
In terms of composition, the effects look damn good, and our cast is pretty well put together. There is an eclectic mix of characters here that are sure to bring us a great summer film, and a Spider-Man unlike anything we have seen before.
Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Laura Harrier, Zendaya, and Tony Revolori. The film premieres July 7th.
