Three new posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming have arrived (via IMPAwards), stressing the film’s Avengers connection and the character’s position in that universe.
One of the most exciting things about Jon Watts’ new take on the character is that they’re really using the fact that Peter Parker is a kid in high school. Obviously we’ve seen that in Sam Raimi and Marc Webb’s movies, but it’s always been the jumping off point for the real story. The reason why Spider-Man could fit so well into this Marvel Universe is precisely because of where he is at this point in his life.
That is a very long way of saying that we love the poster of him lying down with his headphones on.
Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes/The Vulture, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Zendaya as Michelle, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Bokeem Woodbine as Shocker, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan and Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark. Logan Marshall-Green is playing an unnamed villain, Donald Glover is in a mystery role, Hannibal Burress is Peter Parker’s gym teacher and Martin Starr is returning to the Marvel universe after an unspeaking role as Amadeus Cho in The Incredible Hulk (there is absolutely no confirmation about who he’s playing here, though).
Jon Watts (Cop Car) is directing, Watts, Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Christopher Ford, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers have written the screenplay and Mitchell Bell, Eric Hauserman Carroll, Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is in cinemas from 7 July 2017. Get all the latest superhero movie news with every issue of SciFiNow.
