After five movies, three of which was decently good, Marvel has released the new trailer for the second attempt to reboot the Spider-Man movie franchise. The Spider-Man movie franchise has had more reboots than any Hollywood plastic surgery would recommend without a psychological exam but hey, it ain’t my reboot.
Unlike “Spider-Man” and “The Amazing Spider-Man,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming” won’t be an origin story because you’ve already heard that shit before #continuity. The movie takes places after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” and follows the hero Peter Parker as he tries to come into his own as an adequate superhero while having a social life. Peter isn’t doing this alone either, he’s mentor is the one and only Tony Stark. So we have a smartass mentoring a smartass because that’s cinematic comedy gold.
The trailer actually did a very good job of setting up the plot, the characters and the dynamic for the movie. It looked really good. Of course, I thought the same about “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” trailer and look what that left me. I feel like the only reason we have Tony Stark in the movie is to make sure the movie warrants a sequel. Yes, there already planning to do a sequel. While I like they actually worked him into the plot, I think they probably go have done without him. Sure, he might have given him the suit but he really isn’t necessary to mentor him. There are plenty of other Avengers to mentor him. Like Hawkeye, give Hawkeye something to do because he’s the black sheep of superheroes.
Marvel also decided to continue to with British actors portraying Spider-Man with the casting of Tom Holland. He does a very good job here, I just wish they would stick with a concept of how they want to portray Spider-Man because frankly, I’m starting to think they don’t know what to do with Peter. In the first three films, he was nerdy. Then in the first reboot, Peter was the hunky boy next door. In this one, he’s a sarcastic asshole. They just need to stick to how they want Peter to be. It’s getting to the point where it’s hurting the character than helping it. Personally, I enjoyed Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker more than Toby McGuire’s. I didn’t want to punch him in the face so much. He also had a very nice face but that’s beside the point. It would also be nice to see them openly acknowledge the many Peter Parkers because that would be funny.
Overall, the trailer is a great trailer for a Marvel’s struggle bus franchise. Hopefully, this would be the last reboot of Spider-Man because I’m tired of the many faces of Peter Parker and his multiple personalities. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” will be in theaters July 7, 2017.
