Sony on Tuesday released the second trailer for Spider-Man Homecoming that almost goes out of its way to remind you that this Spider-Man is connected to the MCU.
The second Spider-Man Homecoming trailer gives you a great look at Peter Parker and his desire to save the world or at least New York, but it also gives you a pretty good dose of Robert Downey Jr.
First off the trailer was fun to watch and increases my desire to see the movie even sooner then July, but at the time it did seem a little heavy with Robert Downey Jr. aka Tony Stark. I love the fact that Spider-Man is now apart of Marvel’s MCU for however long that agreement remains in place, but at the same time it almost felt like a promotion for another Iron Man movie.
That complaint aside I also understand why we are getting equal amounts of Stark and Parker. Homecoming is collaboration between Sony and Marvel Studios and both want to make sure their products as it were are put front and center in the trailer.
What I really liked was how Michael Keaton’s The Vulture seems to have some deep-rooted hatred towards Stark and I’m hoping we get a pretty heavy dose of Keaton in Homecoming as he looks to be having fun playing the villain.
One of the fun moments for me in the trailer was the quick cameo of Captain America video being played at the assembly and Peter telling his friend that he took his shield as well.
This trailer besides making sure you know its set in the MCU Universe also seemed to give away a little more of the plot then some may of wanted as well. For example, Stark taking back his suit he made for Parker and Parker having to give up all of the high-tech gadgets for a homemade suit with no bells or whistles.
It may not come across after what I wrote, but I did love and enjoy this newest trailer for Spider-Man Homecoming and July won’t get here fast enough.
Spider-Man: Homecoming opens in theaters on July 7th.
