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.
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.
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have found their Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He is Tom Holland who received critical raves for his performances in Wolf Fall and The Impossible – and is one of the stars of the upcoming The Heart of the Sea.
Jon Watts (Cop Car) has been named director of the as yet untitled Spider-Man movie.
Feige commented, “As with James Gunn, Joss Whedon, and the Russo brothers, we love finding new and exciting voices to bring these characters to life. We spent a lot of time with Jon and find his take and work inspiring.”
Producer Amy Pascal added, “Sony, Marvel, Kevin and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world. With Tom, we’ve found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man’s story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
