After the impressive first preview for Jon Watts’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, we’ve finally received a second trailer, and one of the major responses pelting social media is a universal “spoiler-warning.” Despite the reveal of several story beats and quite a few action set-pieces, the film’s quality immediately comes across.
Aside from obligatory spoiler warning, the glimpses of Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) life in Queens draws as much anticipation as the bombastic battles. Everything, from Spidey darting across the New York City skyline to Peter’s everyday experiences at school come across as authentic and exuberant.
Although the trailer spends a fair amount of time showcasing Holland’s Spider-Man/Peter Parker, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man/Tony Stark and Michael Keaton’s Vulture/Adrian Toomes, we’ve actually seen very little of Marissa Tomei, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Hannibal Buress, Tony Revolori, Stan Lee (of course), Jacob Batalon and Bokeem Woodbine’s characters, which at least provides some semblance of mystique as to how they’ll be used throughout the film.
On a side note, I urge everyone to watch the early short films created by Watts and Homecoming screenwriter Christopher Ford within the comedy collective, Waverly Films. Their channel features a number of their best comedic works, and perfectly showcases their sense of humor and style.
Spider-Man: Homecoming arrives in cinemas on July 7, 2017.
