We’re just a little over a week from the launch of the first movie in Sony Pictures’ latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, Spider-Man: Homecoming, this time with a little help from Marvel.
To help promote the movie a fun little prank was set up, as is quite the popular viral marketing technique these days. For this one, customers at a Starbucks in New York City are first confused when the barista calls out Spider-Man’s name for an order, and then surprised when Spidey himself drops down from the ceiling to pick it up. There’s even a cameo from a familiar face.
For nearly a decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has existed without one of its biggest heroes, Spider-Man. However, the Webslinger (Tom Holland) finally made an appearance when swung into Captain America: Civil War. Now he’s ready to venture off in his own standalone film, Spider-Man: Homecoming.
And just to be sure that you are ready, Marvel has dropped a 22-minute special called “A Fan’s Guide to Spider-Man: Homecoming.” In it, Holland and his co-star Zendaya take us through Spider-Man’s evolution within the MCU and the new adventures he will go on in his own film. Check it out below.
In the two film franchises that Spider-Man has been in, never has his suit been as technologically advanced as the one in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though we didn’t see much of those advancements in Captain America: Civil War, it was a definite upgrade when compared to the homemade Spidey suit and goggles.
But Spider-Man: Homecoming will put all of the tech that Iron Man put into the suit on full display. And based on the new trailer, not only are there about 500 different ways to websling but there are also other tools that are at the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man’s disposal. Check out the latest trailer for the film below.
In the age of the superhero shared universe, Spider-Man (Tom Holland) is by far the youngest of them all. He’s just a kid in high school who is still learning the ropes, and if he wants to become someone like Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), he’s going to have to learn how to play by the rules.
That’s what we see in the latest trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming. The trailer actually premiered during CinemaCon 2017 last night, but Sony is just releasing it to the public now. So why don’t you check it out below.
Adrian Toomes aka The Vulture is a recurring villain in the Spidey-verse, but has never made an appearance in any of the films. Until now. Michael Keaton will be playing the winged villain in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming,, starring Tom Holland as the Webhead. Though most remember him as a genius who developed flight technology, audiences will be introduced a new variation of the character.
With a new trailer hitting the Internet tomorrow, we will probably find out more about him and why he is being considered a “Dark Tony Stark.” More on this story below.
