On the 28th March the second trailer for Marvel’s upcoming Spider-man: Homecoming movie made its way onto the internet, or should we say onto the web? Hey? Geddit?
Anyway, as we all know, Marvel’s upcoming Spider-man movie will star Tom Holland as Spider-man/Peter Parker as he clashes against Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark/Iron-Man as the pair argue about Spidey’s inclusion in the Avengers and how Parker should just focus on being a “friendly neighbourhood Spider-man” instead of being like Stark or the other Avengers.
Add to that though, our young Peter Parker also has to collide with Michael Keaton’s Vulture, the latest of Spider-man’s famed rogue’s gallery to get the big-screen treatment, and the first to get Marvel’s magic touch.
The latest trailer gives us a basic feel for the narrative of the movie as well; Vulture looks to be a criminal arms dealer who scavenges high-value tech from other arms producers – namely Tony Stark I suspect – and intends to bring havoc to the streets of New York
Naturally, this being the MCU, the Avengers would be all over a terror event like this, but as it’s a Spider-Man film, the responsibility falls to our beloved web-head to stop the rapscallion.
So sees the clash between Parker and Stark, as whilst Tony is fully willing to offer a hand in fighting Vulture, he does not like how reckless Parker’s being within his attempts – seemingly, the whole “Great Power” speech hasn’t been etched into his mind as of yet.
With any luck, Marvel can right the wrongs of Sony following on from the Amazing Spider-man franchise, and if everything goes according to plan, who knows what doors the partnership might open.
Also, Tom Holland’s Spidey suit is A. May. Zing. – or should that be Aunt May, Zing?
…I’ll see myself out.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will swing by cinemas everywhere from the 7th July this year, and will star the aforementioned Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr, and Michael Keaton as Spider-man, Iron-Man, and Vulture respectively as well as starring Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and many more in as yet unannounced roles – plus the usual Stan Lee cameo of course.
