It’s trailer #2 for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and it’s looking mighty fine.
There’s a new trailer out for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and I now officially love this movie. Or at least I like what I’ve seen of it in the trailers.
This trailer gives us a much better sense of Peter Parker’s arc in the movie, and it also gives us a chance to see him hanging out with his hilarious best friend, Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon).
Also, we get a better view of what Vulture is up to.
Before we get into anything else, can I just say that I’m endlessly amused by the fact that Michael Keaton is playing Vulture, after playing both Batman and a meta-version of himself in the movie Birdman, where he’s a washed up actor known mostly for playing a flying superhero. Now he has come full circle, once again playing a bird guy in a mainstream superhero flick.
I don’t know how many levels of meta that is, but it’s working.
Like the previous Spider-Man trailer, this one shows off Tony Stark’s role as Peter’s mentor/annoying older brother.
Stark gave Peter an amazing Spidey suit in Civil War, but in this trailer, we see that he has decided to take it away. Which sucks, because the suit has that eye-widening feature, plus the Spidey symbol can detach and become a drone. Peter has been getting into too much trouble trying to stop bank robbers (led by Vulture) and saving people on a doomed Staten Island ferry.
Stark wants him to be “a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man,” not a full-blown superhero.
If you watch carefully, some of the fight scenes in the trailer show Peter in his old spandex suit—that’s what he’s wearing in the amazing airplane fight with Vulture.
