Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are betting big on their collaboration, “Spider-man: Homecoming”. They’ve been hitting us with tonnes of promo material, and it’s starting to reveal a bit too much. These two new trailers for example. One’s for the US market and the other for the rest of the world. The former showcases Spidey’s Stark-infused tech, and the latter gives us a taste of Peter Parker’s personality and his arch in this movie. They’re clearly going for a coming-of-age story here, and while I love the vlog bit at the start (of the International trailer), I really would rather discover this in the cinema and be pleasantly surprised. Occupational hazard of running a movie website. For those of you who don’t mind having too much revealed, enjoy.
Here’s the official synopsis: “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” is directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming was written by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley, Jon Watts & Christopher Ford, and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, and also stars Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Donald Glover and Tyne Daly. It premieres 7th July.
