Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel Live, we all got to see the debut trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming movie which is set to star Zendaya, Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr to name a few. Spider-Man: Homecoming s an upcoming American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man, produced by Marvel Studios and Columbia Pictures, and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing.
Thanks to CinemaBlend.com, we can get a basic premise for the movie even though Marvel Studios has yet to release one. Cinema Blend takes it upon themselves to describe the upcoming superhero film as: One of the key parts of this version of Spider-Man is his youth, and the script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein will be taking full advantage of that. The film has been described as a John Hughes-inspired coming of age movie, and the footage shown at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 suggests that a good portion of the film will be set within the walls of Midtown High School.
We know that Spider-Man: Homecoming will deal with a teenage Peter Parker figuring out how to juggle his home life, and social life, while also being a new superhero. If we can take anything away from the title, we also fully expect a sequence where Parker is racing across town on a series of webs while trying to make it in time for the school dance.
This will be Robert Downey Jr.’s eighth time playing the dual role Tony Stark/Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (including his cameo at the end of The Incredible Hulk). Marisa Tomei will be bringing the role of Spider-Man’s infamous Aunt May to life and while Zendaya has been confirmed as a member of the cast, it is still unclear on what her role will be. Earlier this year rumors circulated that the Disney actress was being cast as Mary Jane Watson, but there are other reports that say she will play Michele Gonzales.
Check out the trailer below and let us know if you’ll be hitting up your local movie theater.
