Sony Pictures has just dropped a brand-new action-packed trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and it’s everything we could ever want and more! The preview comes after a short teaser was released yesterday along with some info surrounding the film’s plot.
This new iteration follows Tom Holland as a 15-year old version of Peter Parker who, after being involved in a brawl in Captain America: Civil War, must now try to balance his life as a typical high-schooler in New York City while fighting bad guys as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man.
While the first trailer focused more on Spidey going back to his normal life after his momentary debut in Civil War, this second preview highlights the intense action that we’ll come to expect from the 2017 reboot. If Captain America managed to pull a helicopter from taking off in Civil War, the titular web-slinger tries to outdo that effort by stitching together a giant boat breaking in two parts using only his webs. This particular scene could very well be the film’s very own money shot.
Watch the new trailer below.
Oscar nominee Michael Keaton plays the main antagonist of the film as Adrian Toomes/Vulture, a blue-collar character who’s in charge of a company that provides cleanup services in New York after every superhero battle. Everything seems to be working well for him and his firm until Tony Stark enlists the help of a new government institution that puts him out of business.
To get back at Stark, Toomes rallies a crew of his own that includes two other Spider-Man adversaries – the Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine) and the Tinkerer (Michael Chernus). Together, they put together high-tech weapons from scraps of alien artifacts and sell them to other criminals.
Homecoming is a second retread of the Spider-Man franchise after a collaboration was established between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios. Even though Sony currently has the rights of the film, Marvel is taking full control of the project. This helps the former get a fresh adaptation of the iconic wall crawler, while the latter gets to use the web slinger in their films and be part of Marvel’s growing cinematic universe. It’s a win-win situation for both parties.
Jon Watts (Clown, Cop Car) directs the new chapter of Spider-Man which also stars Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Marisa Tomei, and a special participation of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings its way to theaters on July 7.
