Throughout its development and shoot, practically everyone on the Marvel Studios team would talk about how Spider-Man: Homecoming would a John Hughes-styled high school movie with the bonus of superheroics.
Everyone involved somehow managed to make that thought reality. Spider-Man: Homecoming is a unique mix of John Hughes and Marvel.
My two favorite super hero films remain X-Men 2, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 and The Avengers. For me those three films couldn’t be more different and represent the pinnacle of the Super-Hero genre. I’m not one of those blind “Marvel can do no wrong” fan girls. Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t a perfect film, but it’s damn fun if not slightly disappointing. You can skip all this great prose and go directly to my incoherent video review at the end of the review!
This week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News is one of our most popular every year as the hosts each reveal their most anticipated films of 2017! While most of the releases are big, listen in to learn which smaller films made the cut as well as Fox’s bonus round where he asks Jill and Chris to comment on some of the more intriguing movie currently on the calendar!
Here it is. I don’t know if I trust the Spider-Man movies anymore. Sony completely botched the reboot and then abandoned us in the middle of the story. Now we have a 3rd reboot in less than 15 years. With that said, this trailer looks pretty good and the Vulture looks pretty bad ass.
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.
