Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is in full swing as we enter the summer’s blockbuster season and next on the docket is the highly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming. Although there was 5 films between the two previous Spider-Man movie series, much of the same ground had been tread between the Osborne family, Peter Parker’s origin and killing Uncle Ben.
With Homecoming and Spidey’s introduction the greater MCU, Marvel is keen on giving us a wealth of things we’ve never seen before: a taste of the smaller foes in Spider-Man’s rogues gallery, Peter being mentored by Tony Stark (with an incredibly tech-savvy, almost Iron Spider suit) and even giving Peter a New Yorker accent (seriously why has that taken SO long??).
With the movie a little over a month away, we’re finally treated to the final two trailers, both domestic and international.
Personally, the international trailer has so much more that interests me. Adrian Toomes developing a resentment towards his boss, Tony Stark, while working for Stark’s Damage Control before fully evolving into the Vulture has potential for a great story. Bringing along his crew of the Tinkerer, Shocker and whoever Donald Glover may be playing (rumored to be the Prowler, Hobie Brown) has the Spider-Fan in me as giddy as a schoolgirl.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters July 7th.
