After showing Brooklyn’s first super-soldier Avenger Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) that he’s got the heart of a superhero as a member Team Iron Man, Peter Parker is back in Queens for more web-slinging in next summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” whose star Tom Holland debuts its first official trailer during Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
The title says it all because the film marks the return of Holland as the wall-crawling superhero with the reputation for being friendly neighborhood (Tobey Maguire), amazing (Andrew Garfield), ultimate, and spectacular. Not only that, the film will mark 15-year anniversary of Maguire taking on the great power and greater responsibility of becoming Spider-Man, who made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with “Captain America: Civil War.”
Now comes Holland in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” with Robert Downey, Jr. suiting up once again as armored billionaire-playboy-genius-philanthropist Avenger Tony Stark, who advises young Spidey on the initiative of becoming a member ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ known as the Avengers.
“Don’t do anything I would do,” said the superhero world according to Stark, who was once the lone gunslinger before the Avengers. “And definitely don’t anything I wouldn’t do. There’s a little gray area in there, and that’s where you operate. … Listen, I know school sucks. I know you want to save the world, but you’re not ready yet. … Stay close to the ground. Stay out of trouble.”
But Peter Parker is ready to get out of school and into the world as Spider-Man, the superhero for the little guy against the Vulture (Michael Keaton, the man forever known as Batman and Birdman).
Co-starring Oscar winner Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is set for July 7, 2017.
