SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Invites Rich Friends, New Enemies, And Coming-Of-Age Teen Dilemma In The Brand New Trailer

Where the Russos' Captain America: Civil War left us off, director Jon Watts picks up for moviegoers with actor Tom Holland in Spider-Man: Homecoming for its July 7 release. The week is lit so far with events trickling from CinemaCon and such include the goings-on from Sony in their daring bid to return us to the world of eager superhero Peter Parker in the form of well fitting Tom Holland taking in the title role.

"(It's) the most surreal feeling ever. We're going to get to see a kid whose trying to do his algebra homework, but also [trying to] make New York a safer place, so it's a really fun balance between the two." says Holland (via Movieweb). Also starring are Marisa Tomei as Aunt May with Robert Downey Jr. back once again to assert the continuity of the MCU as Tony Stark/Iron Man, and opposite Michael Keaton back and frowning as the blue-collar principal villain, Adrian Toomes/Vulture.

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.
The new trailer, following that of several months ago, explores a bit more than expected and maybe even spoils one particular moment in the film. That said, it also sets up the quandry Holland's Parker is faced with in the eyes of Stark as he does his best to micromanage all ends as the arbiter here of all things involving superheroing, which I think is fascinating after all that's happened in the past fifteen years or more with this being Sony's third stake in Spider-Man's big screen prospects.

If I'm being honest, I hated covering Spider-Man so much back between 2013 and onward because of the fatigue it drew and how Sony's prior scheduling was so ambitious right before nearly collapsing that I didn't think this was going to be at all worth recovering from. Granted, I guess it's fair that Sony feels it can bring Spider-Man back to the big screen in a way that freshens and aspires to be greater and cohesive, and clearly it's well on the way to doing so after Civil War. It still feels like one Spider-Man movie too much but I admire what's unfolding here and I might give this one a shot myself.
