As promised earlier this week, Jimmy Kimmel presented viewers with the first, full-length trailer for “Spider-Man Homecoming” during last night’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel LIVE”. The late-night ABC talk-show has become the perfect place for Disney and Marvel to debut their newest trailers, making the Disney owned late-night program a go-to destination for all things Marvel. Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Tom Holland, made his web-slinging debut in “Captain America: Civil War,” and will suit up for this new movie as well.
It’s been a while since Marvel has released any new information on “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” though the studio did drop a few plot-details earlier this year at San Diego Comic-Con. Marvel did confirm that Vulture, who will be played by Michael Keaton, will be the central threat to Spider-Man this time around.
Marvel teased the film stating, “A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero.” The new installment was directed by Jon Watts, working off a script written by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. The film will star Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei and Tom Holland.
As we mentioned earlier this will be a Marvel movie, unlike the previous “Spider-Man” films which were from Sony Pictures. Disney struck a deal with Sony that would allow Marvel to bring Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, if only for a short while. This is the same deal that allowed Marvel to have Spider-Man appear in “Captain America: Civil War,” and why Iron Man will be in this new installment. It’s a lot of studio jargon and financial dealings, but in the end the only things fans should care about is that Spider-Man is coming home to Marvel, right where he belongs.
Also appearing in the film are Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly and Bokeem Woodbine Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to release in July 2017.
