Thursday night during Jimmy Kimmel Live we finally got a look at the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The new Spider-Man movie, Homecoming is a co-production between Marvel and Sony Pictures that sees Peter Parker growing up as a teen with all the normal headaches of going through high school, but with the added pressure of having to defend New York from super-villains.
While Sony enjoyed success with Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man the studio seemed to trip over it self when Andrew Garfield slipped into the suit, not that Garfield did a bad job as the wall crawler, but everyone involved was more worried how to expand on the franchise and forgot to focus on just telling a good story.
With Homecoming we see Peter and Spider-Man returning to life during his teen years, much like the comics themselves, something that director Jon Watts is making sure is the focus of this newest reboot of the character.
When Spider-Man: Homecoming opens in theaters next July not only will Sony have a lot riding on it, but Marvel may have even more at stake then Sony. Sony may of swallowed its pride when it went to Marvel for help, but now Marvel has to step up to the plate and almost hit a grand-slam with the story just to show Sony they made the right decision.
From the looks of this first trailer I seriously doubt Sony or Marvel will have a need to worry. What’s the old saying? The third time is the charm, could be the phrase Sony has on its mind when 2017 is over.
Spider-Man: Homecoming opens in theaters July 7, 2017.
Cast: Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Bokeem Woodbine, Donald Glover, Hannibal Buress, Abraham Attah, Martin Starr, Tony Revolori, Michael Barbieri, and Angourie Rice.
Spider-Man: Homecoming 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.
