Don’t Mess With Me! Trailer: Spider-Man: Homecoming!


The Spider-Man we know and love makes his first appearance in a trailer for his own movie – Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Quippy, cocky yet insecure – the kid at the losers’ table in the lunchroom, daydreaming about the hot girl who’s way out of his lead; the hero who takes down a bunch of thugs while wisecracking – this is the first co-production between 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios and it looks like they got it just right.

And Michael Keaton’s vulture? If his Batman had gone bad it might have looked like this.

Check out the trailer after the jump. Spider-Man: Homecoming will open wide (very wide) on July 7, 2017.

Marvel Studios has another winner on their hands. Doctor Strange is one of the best Marvel movies – and that’s saying something!

Trailers and online behind-the-scenes featurettes have been uniformly intriguing – showing us enough to tantalize without really spoiling anything major. Just the fact that the film’s heavy-duty cast – Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetal Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg – seemed to be having great fun was more than enough to suggest something special was going on.

Then to see it… Oh, my!
