It's basically a fact that if DC releases any sort of advertising for their films, let's say, all of the Justice League mini-teasers and posters that are leading to tomorrow's full trailer release, then Marvel Studios follows suit with something huge. Today, Marvel continues that trend with the first two official teaser posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming (domestic and international). And boy, is the domestic one marvelous and completely unlike anything Sony has done.
Marvel Studios now has joint custody of Spider-Man, sharing him with Sony so that he can join his friends in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and everyone can make dump trucks full of money. We've already seen Spidey pop up for a very memorable appearance in Captain America: Civil War just last year, but this year we will see his first solo adventure in Spider-Man: Homecoming. From what we've seen so far, the first Peter Parker to actually look like he belongs in high school, played by Tom Holland, might just be the best Peter Parker/Spider-Man yet!
Straight from @SpiderManMovie on Twitter, the first teaser poster for Spider-Man: Homecoming captures that special magic Marvel Studios always brings to the table, combining classic imagery of New York -- complete with Avengers Tower -- and a twist on Spider-Man, reminding us this kid is still in high school, and he's staying that way!
But wait, true believers, there's more! Heroic Hollywood found the international poster for the film. Though it is more traditional, it still reminds us he's the the MCU and has a sick costume.
The only thing I miss is the classic, "show a reflection of the villain in Spider-Man's eye" trick from the original trilogy of films.
The synopsis for the film is as follows:
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.
What are your thoughts on the third version of Spider-Man in fifteen years? Had enough yet, or ready for that Marvel magic?
Spider-Man: Homecoming comes out July 7, 2017.
