From the streets of Queens to the floor of Hall H: On Saturday night at Comic-Con, Marvel brought Spider-Man: Homecoming to its news-packed panel, and debuted first look at the film.
The teaser, which was not released online, showed the friendly neighborhood webslinger (played by Tom Holland) and his friends at school, and ends with a quick shot of the Vulture, descending from above.
It’s not confirmed who will play Vulture in the film, which just began shooting according to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, but it is strongly suspected Michael Keaton will fill the role. Shortly after the panel, Marvel debuted concept art from Spider-Man which featured Vulture. Check it out below.
Director Jon Watts called the film “a straight-up high school movie, about a 15-year old kid. We know what it’s like to be a billionaire playboy inventor. We learned what it’s like to be an alien God… We’re going to learn what it’s like to be kid in 10th grade going through puberty.”
Holland made his debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, and his appearance was hailed as one of the film’s biggest highlights.
The 20-year-old star made an impression on his Marvel brethren almost immediately, launching into a backflip during his audition for Civil War.
“As important as it is to capture the essence of the character on an emotional level, there’s an incredible physicality to these characters,” Civil War director Joe Russo told EW about Holland, who has years of dance training and is a gymnast as well. “So to see a kid who is a gymnast, and you know you’re going to be digitally mapping to his movements… to have somebody who can move that way, it’s f—ing invaluable.”
Holland leads Spider-Man: Homecoming, but the film’s cast is deep: other actors onboard the project include Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Zendaya, Logan Marshall-Green, Martin Starr, Hannibal Burress, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man/Tony Stark.
