Spider-Man: Homecoming: Tom Holland shares unmasked photo, teases Vulture
On Thursday night, Peter Parker will be swinging into action as the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming premieres on Jimmy Kimmel Live! And to celebrate, Spidey himself — a.k.a. Tom Holland — is sharing a new look at the webslinging wonderkid.
Holland posted a photo on Instagram of Spider-Man unmasked, showing Peter standing on a rooftop in Queens as a train speeds by. In a new interview with USA Today, Holland revealed more about what to expect from the latest incarnation of Spidey, with Homecoming picking up shortly after Peter’s trip to Europe for the big climactic battle of Captain America: Civil War.
“This is really a movie where Spider-Man’s not the finished article,” Holland told USA Today. “He really does learn and he makes massive mistakes. It’s nice to see a kid do that and then try to rectify those mistakes.”
Holland and director Jon Watts also revealed a few more details about Spider-Man’s newest foe: Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. the Vulture. Watts argued that unlike past Marvel nemeses, the Vulture isn’t all that different from Spider-Man — except that instead of being an average guy who becomes a superhero, Adrian Toomes is an average guy who turns to villainy.
“The first time we see the Vulture is terrifying,” Holland added. “It’s like a horror movie: really scary, very intense and shocking.”
Robert Downey Jr. and Marisa Tomei are reprising their roles as Tony Stark and Aunt May, respectively, with newcomers including Jacob Batalon as Peter’s best friend Ned Leeds, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, and Zendaya as Michelle.
Both domestic and international versions of the Homecoming trailer are set to premiere online Thursday night, with the domestic version debuting on Kimmel. Once the trailers hit the, um, web, check back with EW.com for a breakdown of the new footage.
