‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Trailer: Tom Holland Faces Michael Keaton’s Vulture

Sony Pictures has released the second trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming. After his marvelous (sorry!) debut in Civil War, this film will be his first solo outing in the Cinematic Universe where he will face new nemesis while juggling between school and superhero life.

The first trailer was a mere introduction to the character, while the new one jumps more into the meat of the story. Like the first trailer, it is clear that Peter wants to do more as Spider-Man and wants to possibly be a full-time Avenger. He faces off the villain Vulture on one occasion where everything goes wrong and puts civilian lives in danger. Of course, Tony Stark is angered by the incident and it is up to Parker himself to take on the villain.

Tom Holland was a terrific Spidey in Civil War. He is a young actor, full of life and energy, something which is clearly reflected in the trailer. Another highlight of the trailer was Micheal Keaton as the Vulture. Now for the most part. Marvel has had a bad history with villains unless their name was Loki. The trailer spends a good amount of time on Keaton also giving a hint of his backstory and why he’s doing what he’s doing. Hopefully his turn as the antagonist will be a memorable one.

Another big part of the trailer was the involvement of Tony Stark. As seen in trailer one, he is acting as a mentor to a young Peter Parker. Robert Downey Jr. has always been a delight to watch as the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. However, my only fear is how much of Tony Stark can the film manage to push in? We won’t have to wait very long to find that out luckily.

The film is directed by Jon Watts with the script penned by three pairs of writers namely Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley, Jon Watts  & Christopher Ford, and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers.

The film also stars Marisa Tomei, Tony Revolori, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, and Donald Glover.

Spider-Man Homecoming opens in theatres on July 7, 2017.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for the film:

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
