Spiderman fans rejoice! Marvel gave a glimpse into the upcoming ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ movie at Comic Con on July 24, and the fandom is going absolutely crazy over the first shots of Tom Holland as Peter Parker — and his new villain. Get the details right here!
Tom Holland is officially Spider-Man! The 20-year-old actor made his debut as Peter Parker in the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming during Comic Con in San Diego, kicking off the Spider-Man hype that will likely be here to stay until the movie comes out July 7, 2017. On top of getting a first look at Tom’s role, we also got to meet the new villain: Vulture!
Between fighting bad guys, lifting metal structures, and plenty of web slinging, the first Spider-Man: Homecoming sneak peek is everything any major superhero/Marvel fan could want. Unfortunately the fan-recorded video from Comic-Con has since been deleted, but it was certainly nothing short of amazing. Plus, the faux trailer revealed Vulture’s creepy character, presumably played by Michael Keaton, and there’s no doubt that this movie is going to be totally epic!
Spider-Man: Homecoming has been promised to be as close to the original comic books as possible, with Tom portraying the most similar version of Peter Parker of all the film adaptions to date (who would’ve thought you could beat Tobey Maguire!). Along with the scrounged up videos, Marvel also released the first concept art shot from the film, which looks even more like a comic book than the video clips!
What makes the first footage even crazier is that the cast literally started filming Spider Man: Homecoming just one week before showing the TV video. Yep, they already had almost two minutes of awesome footage from just one week of filming!
Considering the movie doesn’t even come out until next summer, getting a first look is such a tease — we don’t want to have to wait another year to see the full film! But if the movie is anywhere near as thrilling as the first looks we’re getting of Spider-Man: Homecoming, we certainly think it’ll be worth the wait!
