In latest Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, Peter Parker struggles to balance life as a teen and superhero. Also see new posters featuring our Spidey out and about in NYC.
I need to be honest: back when Sony and Marvel Studios first announced their Spider-Man reboot, I wasn’t that enthused. Of course, I quickly changed my mind after meeting Tom Holland’s Spidey in Captain America: Civil War.
The mentor/mentee relationship and hilarious banter with Tony Stark totally had me sold (that, and the amazing Spider-Man: Homecoming cast, including Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Laura Harrier, and Donald Glover!).
The first Homecoming trailer (watch below), essentially sets the stakes for us as we see Peter Parker struggle with being a teenager and the normal teenage struggles (crushing on the most popular girl in school, homework), all while being recruited to the Avengers and trying to prove himself as a superhero. It’s totally adorable with the hilarity and crazy-intense “hero vs. villain” drama we’ve come to expect from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This week Marvel shared three new posters of Spidey hanging out around his hometown of New York City, being a normal kid (despite being in his iconic costume).
In my favorite poster he’s chilling, listening to music while lounging with the NYC skyline (and Avengers Tower) behind him. The tagline says “Homework can wait. The city can’t. #SpiderManHomecoming” Check them out:
Remember, Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters July 7, 2017! Plus, you know we can also expect Peter to reprise his role in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War…
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 superhero 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 freindly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
