As teased earlier this week, a third and final trailer has been released for Sony and Marvel’s ultimate love-child, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Directed by Jon Watts, Homecoming stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker tries to return to his daily life as a High School student after being thrilled by his experience with the Avengers. But while trying to prove himself more than a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, a new villain emerges who will threaten everything Peter holds important.
I’m really, really really digging this new trailer. In fact, I think it’s by far the best of the bunch. More than any of the rest, it shows the exact kind of film we’re getting with Homecoming. The comedy beats, the complete coming-of-age vibe from director Jon Watts, and the high intensive MCU inclusion. Not only that, but how about the tech? We’ve all been wondering how much of a role RDJ’s Tony Stark would be playing in this film, and with each trailer we begin to see more and more of him. He has a tremendous impact on not just the story, but who Peter Parker’s Spider-Man is. And it’s a really good thing.
Unlike previous Spider-Man incarnations, this one is purposely trying to separate itself from the rest. How? Well by changing up the origin and identity of Spidey a bit. Have we ever seen Spider-Man sport this kind of tech? No. Did we ever know Tony Stark created the “friendly neighborhood” tagline? No. Have we ever seen a 16 year old Parker try to balance the much larger world he’s swung his way into? Hell no. It’s a clear separation and for a life long fan of the character, I could not be more excited. It also helps that Holland is perfect for the role, RDJ’s Iron Man is highly involved, and the Vulture is played by legendary badass Michael Keaton. Come on…
Check out both the domestic and international version of the new trailer below. After doing so, let me know what you think. Which trailer is your favorite? Are you as pumped as I am? I’ve also attached my live reaction to the trailer, which you can see below the official synopsis. Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7th, 2017 and stars Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Zendeya, Hannibal Buress, Abraham Attah, Angourie Rice, Martin Starr, and Logan Marshall-Green.
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.
