When The First Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer May Premiere


Seeing Peter Parker participate in Captain America: Civil War was a great appetizer for what's to come from him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but now many fans are chomping at the bit for the main course: Spider-Man: Homecoming. We're still eight months away from the Web-Slinger's first MCU solo adventure being released, but it doesn't sound like the public will have to wait much longer for a first look at the movie. The word is out that the the first trailer will be attached to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story next month.

Sources close to Spider-Man: Homecoming's production told Comicbook.com that the trailer will be screened alongside Rogue One when it hits theaters on December 16. Sony hasn't commented on this claim yet, but such a move would make sense. Both Marvel and Star Wars are part of the Disney family, so this would be a classic case of corporate synergy. Marvel also has a history of releasing the first trailers for their blockbusters approximately seven months before its release, and the timeline here matches that pattern. That being said, assuming this report is true, and given the nature of the internet and trailer releases nowadays, expect the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer to be posted online a few days before Rogue One comes out.

Even though Spider-Man received a decent amount of attention in Captain America: Civil War, both in his civilian life and fighting alongside the other members of Team Iron Man, Spider-Man: Homecoming will see Tom Holland's Peter Parker grabbing the limelight all for himself. Although some footage was shown to folks at San Diego Comic-Con, this will be Marvel's first opportunity to get the masses excited for the movie beyond casting announcements and set photos. While the report didn't say what will be shown in the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, I have a few guesses. Some of the shots could include Spidey swinging through New York City, the Wall-Crawler webbing up some hoodlums, a look at Peter's high school life and if we're lucky, a quick shot of one of the villains, preferably the high-flying Vulture. Of course, if you have your own preferences on what should be in the trailer, let us know in the comments below.

Taking place some time after Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming will follow Peter Parker still getting the hang of being a superhero, but now better equipped to fight crime thanks to special technology given to him by Iron Man. Along with Tom Holland as Peter Parker, the movie's cast includes Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Michael Keaton as Vulture, Zendaya as Michelle, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will spin its web in theaters on July 7, 2017.
