For many years, the idea of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was just a dream. That all changed in early 2015, when Sony and Marvel made a deal to bring the webslinger into the larger franchise. Earlier this year we saw Tom Holland's debut as the character in Captain America: Civil War, but next year is the bigger deal for the hero, as he'll be getting his own solo movie with Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming. We have months to wait for its theatrical premiere, but today we have its first official trailer!
Airing for the first time this evening during Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer has finally arrived online after weeks and weeks of internet rumors. Unlike the footage that was shown at San Diego Comic-Con, it showcases some legitimate clips of Spider-Man in his costume and doing his thing, and naturally we're only more excited for the full movie to be in front of our eyes. Though, surprisingly enough, this first full trailer for Peter Parker's latest reboot story shows us something we're kind of surprised by: it looks like Homecoming is going to totally nail the high school part of Spidey's origin story.
While our looks at the new and improved Spider-Man costume are exciting, as well as the action shots of Spidey sailing with his web wings and cracking wise with bank robbers, the Peter Parker half of the story has always been the one that seems to suffer in live-action Spider-Man films. Spider-Man: Homecoming looks to change that, with the introduction of some friends of Peter's, as well as the fact that we're going to see a somewhat sidelined webslinger, just dying to get into full time hero action with The Avengers. And somehow, Tony Stark's now the voice of reason, trying to make sure that Peter doesn't swing into any action he can't handle.
To be honest, if we were in Peter Parker's shoes, and we saw Michael Keaton's rendition of The Vulture, we'd probably be telling Tony he told us so in a heartbeat. While we don't see much of Keaton in action per se, we do see a small scene where he politely threatens Spidey to back off, or he'll kill everyone he loves. By that point in the trailer, it's pretty grim, so something huge is going to have to happen to close us out with a smile. Wait a minute... was that Spider-Man and Iron Man flying around together?!
It totally was! Looks like the wait to Spider-Man: Homecoming's July 7, 2017 release date just got a lot longer. Obviously, we'll have more coverage as the wait gets shorter, and you'll more than likely be able to see this trailer in front of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story next weekend. Oh, and Donald Glover... we totally saw you looking like a villain at 01:53. Definitely need some answers pertaining to that scowl in the near future.
