Spider-Man: Homecoming had its star-studded world premiere in Hollywood’s TCL Chinese Theatre and we’ve got all the goods, including photos and interviews!
Happy Spider-Man: Homecoming week!
Friends, I can’t lie, when I first heard that another Spider-Man reboot was in the works, I was a little skeptical. With the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield versions being so recent, was it really necessary to explore this origin story again? But then we learned that Spidey would be coming home to Marvel (via a collaboration with Sony), which opened a ton of new possibilities! There were lots of interesting storylines to explore with Peter Parker as a part of the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. Plus many speculated that there were intriguing potential casting choices, like bringing in Miles Morales as the hero. However, Tom Holland was cast as the lead, and while I didn’t know much about him, I figured this would be another conventional story.
And then I saw Captain America: Civil War and Tom Holland completely blew me away as Peter Parker. His comedic time, the heart and dauntlessness he conveyed in the character, along with the HILARIOUS interactions with Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark, were all fantastically entertaining. I left that movie really looking forward to Spider-Man: Homecoming, and this excitement increased the more we learned about new cast members like Zendaya, Donald Glover, Laura Harrier, Abraham Attah, Garcelle Beauvais, and Marissa Tomei.
Here we are, finally at the film’s release week. And with the initial rave reviews, I’m counting down to Friday, July 7 like it’s my job!
