When it was revealed that Spider-Man would included in this year’s “Captain America: Civil War“, fans legitly flipped out.
Not only did the inclusion of the web slinger mean a big welcome home for Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), in the epic blockbuster, the superhero was recruited to join Tony Stark’s #TeamIronMan in the ultimate superhero brawl.
If that wasn’t mind-blowing enough, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man was also featured in the post-credit scene, where he’s seen trying out a new high-tech suit built by Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. It was the perfect tease for “Spider-Man: Homecoming“, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios’ first full film collaboration.
Alas, not much has been revealed about this suit. Until now 😉
Late last night, Sony Pictures dropped a 15-second teaser for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” – a small clip that has affected fans in a big way. The video revealed that Tony Stark has given the Spider-Man suit “a minor upgrade” and it includes something that we have not yet seen on any cinematic Spider-Man.
In case you’re wondering, “You mean Spider-Man can fly?” Well, not exactly. The web wings are actually classic Spider-Man, dating back to his original 1962 appearance in the comics. Spider-Man can’t fly but it enables him to glide through the air. Did Spider-Man flip out at his new and improved costume? “This is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen!” he gushed.
The film is also expected to have 3 villains, although neither Sony Pictures nor Marvel have officially announced who those villains might be. Perhaps we’ll get more deets when the full trailer is released in a couple of hours so stay tuned! 🙂
UPDATE (9th December):
The full first trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” has been released! Watch Spider-Man swing into action as he interrupts a bank robbery (that Avengers plug though!), defies acrophobia as he perches on tall buildings, and tries to make sense of Tony Stark’s incredibly awkward life advice while juggling having to hide his secret identity.
Peter Parker: So, to become an Avenger, are there like trials or an interview th-
Tony Stark: You just don’t do anything I would do, and definitely don’t anything I wouldn’t do. There’s a little gray area in there and that’s where you operate.
Peter Parker: (confused) Oh..
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” is expected to be released on 7th July 2017.
