The first-ever trailer for the Marvel and Sony Pictures Entertainment superhero collaboration, “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” is out, and it’s bringing together a whole lot more than two studios. The new Spider-Man movie is making full use of their crossover with lots and lots of Iron Man.
Tom Holland stars as the newly rebooted (there have been several now) Peter Parker. One thing that is already plainly obvious about this new iteration is age: Peter actually looks kind of like a high school student, thanks to casting Holland.
Also in the first-ever footage to premiere (unveiled on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”) is the villain, the Vulture, who will be played by former superhero actor Michael Keaton. Not seen but already cast (as she made a cameo in Marvel’s recent “Civil War” feature) is Marisa Tomei as the much younger Aunt May.
As for the plot, this looks like standard Spider-Man high school troubles, with plenty of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr. twists. Fingers crossed for this one.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” will premiere on July 7, 2017.
