Well, it’s been rather nerve-wracking waiting on the first trailer for the newest incarnation of Spider-Man played by Tom Holland. Yes, I know we got a hint of the character from the recent Captain America: Civil War, but even as much as I liked Holland’s portrayal, seeing an entire film centered on him is rather different than just what amounts to a cameo appearance.
Well, the wait is over, and the first trailer is here. In it, we get a little bit of fun banter with Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.), who returns in the film to shepherd Spider-Man’s abilities as an Obi-Wan type. We also get our first look at the Vulture, and I’m digging the look. Overall, though, we are getting the feeling that this is a John Hughes superhero film which was what we were promised.
To me, there just isn’t a whole lot of bad about this trailer. It’s weird because I’m searching for a flaw, but I just can’t find one. It seems like this relationship between Marvel and Sony might actually work.
What do you think? Are you excited for the new John Hughes-like Spider-Man: Homecoming? What’s your favorite live-action Spider-Man film? Let me know.
