CinemaCon 2017: Spider-Man: Homecoming Footage Reveals The Tough Trials Of Being A Superhero In High School
With great power comes great responsibility.
Then again, what does a high school student with web powers actually know?
Sony Pictures celebrated its partnership with Marvel to bring another Spider-Man movie with Spider-Man: Homecoming. During its presentation at CinemaCon 2017, producer Amy Pascal, Marvel president Kevin Feige and Tom Holland came up to the stage to introduce additional footage never seen in previous trailers.
The new trailer gave us a better look at the Spider-Man costume. At one point, Spidey is trying to put his costume in mid-air that looked like putting on oversize loose pajamas. Then he hits a button and the Spidey suit tightens around his body.
The footage also shows that the Vulture (played by Michael Keaton) is hellbent on exacting some kind of score against Stark Industries. The Vulture has a gang of bad guys, who can all shoot a white laser beam out of their guns. Vulture used the weapon to split a river ferry right down the middle.
Speaking of the split ferry scene--which many of us saw in the current trailers with Spider-Man holding both halves with a complicated web network -- the new footage shows Iron Man asssisting by pushing on one side of the boat.
Stark then reprimanded Spider-Man for being reckless and takes back his awesome suit. Spider-Man resorts to his old costume to confront Vulture again. We see more cool battles on top of the Washington Monument and on a falling burning transport plane.
The coolest part about the film is dealing with high school, particularly his best friend Ned Leeds (played by Jacob Batalon) knowing his secret identity. At one point, Ned wears the Spidey mask for fun.
With Marvel now providing some direction for Spider-Man in the MCU, Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t look like it’s going to disappoint.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be in theaters on July 7.
