Spidey swings into action in first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer
The first full trailer for Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday, introducing the first look at Tom Holland’s standalone Spidey movie.
The new footage offers a glimpse at Michael Keaton’s villainous Vulture, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, and plenty of web-slinging action from Holland’s young hero, Peter Parker, including a scene in which he takes down some bank robbers who are wearing Avengers masks.
Iron Man, who is seen later in the trailer flying through a cityscape alongside Spidey, offers his young protégé some advice. “Just don’t do anything I would do,” Stark says. “And definitely don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. There’s a little gray area in there, and that’s where you operate.”
Stark also tells Peter he’s “not ready” to handle the “flying monster guy” — presumably Keaton’s Vulture, who promises, “Don’t mess with me, because I will kill you and everybody you love” — but Parker doesn’t want to listen to his Avenger mentor. “I’m sick of him treating me like a kid all the time,” he says. “This is my chance to prove myself.”
The trailer, which prominently features MGMT’s “Time To Pretend,” also highlights Peter’s high school life, where he and his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon) pine after the beautiful Liz (Laura Harrier) to the annoyance of Michelle (Zendaya).
The film also stars Marisa Tomei, Donald Glover, and Tony Revolori. Jon Watts is directing.
On Wednesday, Sony shared a short, 18-second teaser that showed Happy Hogan (played by Jon Favreau) presenting Peter with a gift from Tony Stark: an upgraded suit, complete with Steve Ditko-inspired web wings.
