After weeks of online rumours the ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ trailer is finally here after officially being teased on Wednesday afternoon that it would air on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Thursday night.
The trailer shows us how Peter is struggling to go back to normal life after taking part in the airport battle in ‘Civil War’. Tony Stark takes on a mentor-like role and tells Peter he should stick to working hard at school because he’s “not ready yet” for the role of a superhero. Peter obviously thinks the opposite and when the Vulture makes an appearance he thinks it’s time to prove to Tony that he is ready and able to be a part of the Avengers world. The trailer give us a quick insight to Peter’s school life and his friends and also a look at the villain, Vulture, who is played by the brilliant Michael Keaton. We hear Vulture give a threatening speech about not being messed with, which we can assume is aimed at Spider-Man, as well as a quick look at his bird-like suit
Alongside the trailer we have the official synposis:
“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.”
I’ve been saying since my first viewing of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ that I couldn’t wait for Tom Holland’s solo Spider-Man film because he just seems perfect for the role, and his short screen time in Civil War itself was just a snippet of what we can expect from Holland in the future. Joining Holland in the film will be the likes of Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Donald Glover, and Tyne Daly.
