Ahead of the first trailer launch later tonight, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have premiered both a new photo from “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and shared new details about the film.
Tom Holland stars in the film which is described as a coming-of-age story in which Peter Parker attends his high school for gifted kids, trying to impress his new benefactor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) whilst dealing with the machinations of the Vulture (Michael Keaton).
Holland tells USA Today that the film is: “more a character piece about this kid who’s struggling to talk to girls and also struggling to save the city… This is really a movie where Spider-Man’s not the finished article. 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 also says our first glimpse of Keaton’s villain is going to be memorable: “The first time we see the Vulture is terrifying. It’s like a horror movie: really scary, very intense and shocking.” Director Jon Watts adds: “It’s fun to think that if Spider-Man is a regular kid who becomes a superhero, there’s got to be a bunch of regular guys who become supervillains, too.”
Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, Logan Marshall-Green and Kenneth Choi also star in the film which opens July 7th.
