A buddy of mine, who's frankly kind of obsessed with Spider-Man (and the Philadelphia Eagles) has been bugging me for months. "When is the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer coming? Didn't they wrap a while ago? Come on! You should know this stuff!" And I've told him that my best prediction is that it will be unveiled alongside the premiere of its Disney cousin Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It'd make sense, right? Disney owns LucasFilm, and it owns Marvel Studios- which is co-producing Spider-Man: Homecoming with Sony- so the best possible launch for a trailer for the July movie is with Rogue One in December.
Turns out, I was right.
ComicBook.com is reporting that sources close to the production have informed them that the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming will, indeed, be attached to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story when that film comes out on December 16.
That means it'll hit the web that same week, folks! Spider-Man fans around the world will get their first real peak at Homecoming in less than a month.
On a side note: Am I the only one weirded out by the fact that Rogue One tickets aren't on sale yet? Last year Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out on the same weekend, and tickets for that film went on sale of October 20th. It's now November 18, and still nothing for Rogue One.
Anyway, this is all great news for fans of Spider-Man who've been dying for his first film solo set entirely in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Here's a reminder of Spider-Man: Homecoming's cast, which includes Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, , Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Martin Starr, Kenneth Choi, Michael Mando, Selenis Leyva, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg, Jr., Hannibal Buress, and Jacob Batalon.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Holland), who made his sensational debut in Marvel Studios' Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by Jon Watts, comes out on July 7, 2017.
