Despite being the newcomer to the MCU, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man instantly became a fan favorite after his initial appearance in Captain America: Civil War – mostly due to the actor’s charm and youthful approach to the character. Now, based on what Marvel has revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, it looks like we can expect to see a lot more.
The footage shown in Hall H hasn’t been made available online yet, but ComicBook.com’s Lucas Siegel was on hand to provide a description of what was shown:
Bad Reputation plays, and shots of high school. “Every Story” then shots of Tony, Rhodey, each character in high school. “Every journey. Has a beginning.” Peter is walking through school, and a homecoming banner goes up. 9:30am Science. Peter’s looking at footage of himself taking Giant Man down. Flash Thompson is an indian character. The Disney channel star Zendaya may be playing Liz Allan! In Chemistry, Parker works on his web fluid on the side. A girl is playing F, M, K with Avengers. Liz thinks Spidey is hot. One of his other friends is trying to figure out what he’s hiding. Jump cuts of him running down a hallway zipping a hoodie over the costume, and climbing up a wall, and finally, he and the “Ganke type” doing a handshake. Then VULTURE comes down a tube, with crazy armor.
It definitely confirms that the villain of the film will be The Vulture, however it doesn’t reveal whether this is the role that Michael Keaton will be playing. It seems as though director Jon Watts was telling the truth when he revealed that the movie would draw very heavily from the John Hughes high school films of the eighties.
As well as the footage Marvel also debuted a piece of concept art showing Spidey in a battle against The Vulture which you can see below.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will hit theaters July 7th, 2017.
