NEW TRAILER FOR SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

The second trailer from our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man webs us up with joy.

We’ll swing out of the way of this one and just let you enjoy it. Thoughts after the embed below!

Things that we hate: 0

Things that we love: All of the things.

Apparently the internet is saying this second trailer is showing too much, perhaps robbing us of moments we’re craving to see for the first time on screen this July. You know, because the internet.

Products from Amazon.com

    But we tend to think that this trailer and all of the funny, exciting, touching moments brings the goods for a couple of reasons.

    1 | Spider-Man is “home” now with Marvel proper, and despite his great reception in Captain America: Civil War, the overall typical moviegoer and even true believers think there’s been A LOT of Spider-Man movies with different Spider-Men in them.  Well, releasing trailers showing the goods is what you do when marketing your franchise film, especially if it’s a new Spider-Man movie. Also…

    2 | We’re betting what we’ve seen in these trailers is just the tip of the iceberg. This doesn’t feel like a movie with only a few tiny moments they’re going to blow to sell tickets. There are probably a few dozen other moments in this thing we’ve yet to discover. Also, just because we’ve watched Spidey doing a cannonball into a swimming pool in this thing over and over doesn’t mean we won’t laugh with a packed movie theater when it happens there. If a moment is good in a movie it works no matter how many times you watch it.

    Here are a few screens of some of our favorite moments in the trailer above:

    The aforementioned Spidey doing a swing-by cannonball! This feels how Spider-Man should. The tone is pitch perfect.

     

    I love that his suit sucks up, for lack of a better term, like Marty McFly’s jacket. It also answers how the heck can he squeeze into something like this. Nice touch.

     

    This may be my favorite; Captain America in easily his worst cinematic costume from the first Avengers talking to high school gym students about a Fitness Challenge. It’s so corny old-man Captain America and using that cheesy costume isn’t a coincidence. Thought went into this, and I love that. Peter whispering to his friend that he stole his shield is the cherry on top.

     

    Peter’s best friend in Homecoming is Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon), and we love this image of him wearing his bud’s superhero mask. This is totally something you’d do as a teenager.

     

    And of course we have the patriarchal Tony Stark to young Peter Parker. It’s nice to have an actor who loves playing a character like Robert Downey Jr. does Iron Man“If you’re nothing without this suit, then you shouldn’t have it.” A nice callback to Iron Man Three (possibly the most underrated Marvel movie).

    Spider-Man: Homecoming is out July 7, 2017. What do you think about the trailer?

    WELCOME HOME, SPIDEY! | WATCH THE SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING TRAILER

    It’s good to have our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man back.

    Emphasis on “friendly” here. Tom Holland and his portrayal of Spider-Man is pitch perfect. In Captain America: Civil War he proved that with minimal screen time. His presence and embodiment of both Spider-Man and Peter Parker was the purest form of the character we’ve seen yet.

    Spidey coming back to Marvel, or rather Sony bartering a wise deal with the house of ideas after botching their rebooted Spider-Man franchise, is a humble and wise move. After two dark and sloppy Amazing Spider-Man movies, it’s nice to see a studio not only give fans what they want, but also have the foresight to know this is going to be a win. I mean, we have Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man flying through the New York skyline with the webslinger. Ticket sold (as if it wasn’t already).

    The trailer gives us a tone that’s perfect for a high school superhero. Spider-Man wants to do more and be more after getting a taste of the action in Civil War. His mentor, Tony Stark, advises him against this, but lets him keep the suit upgrade and gives him yet another upgrade you can view below.

    Steve Ditko web-wings! I love that detail for the costume.

    And Fav’s, Foggy Nelson. Yes. All good things to report from these glimpses. If this was another franchise outside of Marvel I would be concerned that Tony Stark would overpower Peter Parker and hog all of the good moments, but Civil War proved otherwise. This studio has earned that faith time and time again. The dynamic these two characters have in the cinematic universe is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

    Spider-Man is the perfect superhero for our modern age of millennial minds. Peter Parker is an underpaid freelance photographer making money out of taking selfies as his superhero persona. I love that a character that is over half a century old is still relevant in the present. Newspapers are downsizing and typically understaffed, but surprisingly, freelance photography is becoming a much larger piece of the budget as regular staff photographers aren’t as affordable and everyone has an iPhone. I’m interested to see how the Daily Bugle is handled in the new series if it makes it into Spider-Man: Homecoming at all.

    Can’t wait to see more from the wall crawler, Micheal Keaton as Vulture, whomever Zendaya is, and the whole thing.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming arrives July 7th, 2017.

    SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Set Photos Show Peter Parker and Spidey in Costume

    Just Tom Holland hanging out in his Spidey suit on a crane throwing out a peace sign. No biggie.

    I love the joy that Tom Holland seems to be having on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming. The young actor just radiates the persona of Peter Parker and Spider-Man and that’s nothing short of amazing. I’m really excited by his excitement! Let’s look at these photos of our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

    Twitter user @abouttomholland (who specializes in knowing things about Tom Holland obvi) reported the set photos of Holland as Peter and another twitter feed @FilmFeed (which specializes in film feeds obvi) reported the Spidey suit photos. Nothing much more to report other than that! Spider-Man: Homecoming is obviously in the middle of filming and will be in theaters next summer!
