Spider-Man Homecoming releases a second trailer which is, again, just a noisy mess, and centres around young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) beginning to figure out his new-found identity as web-slinging superhero Spider-Man.
Following on from the dire Captain America: Civil War, he returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May, under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark. He tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your freindly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, Keaton playing the same type he has for a long time when in bad guy mode.
Directed by Jon Watts from a script by him and FIVE OTHER PEOPLE. REALLY??! It takes SIX people to come up with this junk? The others are Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Christopher Ford, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.
Robert Downey Jr also reprises his role as Iron Man, aka Tony Stark, as does Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, plus Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Logan Marshall-Green, Hannibal Buress, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz/Shocker, plus Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys) as Betty Brandt.
And no doubt Stan Lee will pop along, too.
All that said, give me Andrew Garfield’s movies any day, over the sperm of Dominic Holland. And The Impossible was terrible, too.
And just how many more of these Avengers films will we get until they finally stop?! Especially with Spider-Man, it’s just the same characters meeting the same foes every few years but played by different actors (much like Doctor Who, in fact).
Spider-Man Homecoming has been brought forward 2 days to July 5th.
