Ahead of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” hitting cinemas this week, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have brought the first four minutes of the film online, the sequence showcasing Peter’s video blogs of his time in “Captain America: Civil War” along with the limo scene with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) seen in the trailers.
Stark serves as a mentor in this, but director Jon Watts reveals to io9 that before that was locked in they created ‘mood reels’ featuring Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury as Parker’s mentor instead to try it out in case Downey Jr. didn’t want to return.
However, Stark was a more seamless fit and solved an issue with the previous “Spider-Man” films according to its star Tom Holland – that of believability that a high school kid with no money is able to design and manufacture a space age superhero outfit at home with his mother’s sewing machine:
“The original Spider-Man [tracksuit] in this movie is all made by Peter Parker. The original webshooters, goggles, that’s all Peter Parker tech. Its just been upgraded by Tony Stark
I often find that in previous movies, him making his Spider-Man suit is a little far fetched. Our Spider-Man suit has the justification because it was made by Tony Stark.”
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” arrives in cinemas on July 7th.
