The second trailer for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ has hit the Internet, once again proving we film fans are a fickle lot. One minute we’re all yelling “WHY IS THERE ANOTHER SPIDER-MAN MOVIE?” And the next we’re all shouting “OH MY GOD! TOM HOLLAND WAS BORN TO BE PETER PARKER” while we threw money at the screen following his turn in ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
Then the first trailer hit and it looked fresh and funny and potentially justified yet ANOTHER take on the Spider-man story. Now the yelling has died down we get another chance to look at Holland as Spider-man in this second trailer and it’s so far, so… meh.
There’s plenty of Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man explaining that with great power comes great yada yada… Michael Keaton seems to be on fine manic form as “the flying monster guy” (ok, Vulture) and Jacob Batalon as his best-mate/comedy sidekick.
Let’s hope that there is something more original in the mix and that the younger take on Peter Parker as enough humour to enhance what appears to be a very pedestrian storyline, or we’ll all go back to yelling “whhhhhyyyyy?” at the screen. Hope does come in the form of the extensive cast who have not yet been featured in trailers, with the likes of Donald Glover, Jon Favreau and Hannibal Buress yet to appear, meaning there may still be some tricks up those tight sleeves.

“A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man, 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, under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark. 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 emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.”
