After a three-year hiatus, the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is back on the big screen in an all-new superhero adventure. Only, a lot has changed since the days of The Amazing Spider-Man (much of which, we have covered, and you have read). Sony struck a deal with Marvel, so Spidey belongs to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tom Holland wears the suit, replacing Andrew Garfield. And as we see in this brand new trailer for July's Spider-Man: Homecoming, The Vulture (Michael Keaton) is going to make a lot of problems for our teenaged web head. Watch the new trailer below:
Jon Watts' upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming takes place after the hero made his debut in Captain America: Civil War. Young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) has been recruited by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) to fight crime... only, he's not a full-fledged Avenger just yet. Tony still wants Peter to maintain a low profile. Stay in school. Break up the occasional petty larceny. Leave the Big Bads to the real superheroes.
Only, that becomes harder to do when Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) starts beef with Tony Stark and leads to the creation of his alter ego, The Vulture. Toomes is businessman who wants his share of "the pie." He thinks Stark cut him out of a lucrative deal. He wants revenge, though Spider-Man might have something to say about it.
The new trailer gives us a very clear rundown of exactly what the story of Spider-Man: Homecoming will be. Michael Keaton's Adrian Toomes is a guy with a bone to pick with rich and powerful people like Tony Stark. Thanks to some advance technology he's got his hands on, he builds a suit capable of taking on the super powered set. Which Spider-Man, of course, tries to deal with.
Interestingly, the trailer also shows us that, due to an incident on a ferry going really badly, Tony Stark will basically fire Peter Parker as a superhero, taking back the high-tech suit that was given in Captain America: Civil War. Of course, this does little to dissuade Peter from fighting crime, as he goes back to his homemade costume that we saw briefly in YouTube videos from the last movie.
It's curious that the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming has essentially laid out the film's entire plot, while the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 still leaves much in the shadows. It's a possible indication that while both films may be taking place in Marvel Cinematic Universe, the fact that Sony is still involved with the wall-crawler means that things are being handled a little differently.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the second of three MCU films to hit the screen this year, go here for the full list of upcoming titles.
