If you like your movie trailers giving away all the good bits, you’ll love the new jointly produced Spider Man: Homecoming trailer that Sony and Marvel rolled out.
The trailer is almost three minutes long, covering the budding relationship between Peter Parker and Tony Stark. We get a quick rundown of Stark explaining to Parker about him staying low to the ground and essentially being the “friendly neighborhood Spider-Man”. Stark encourages Peter to be a street-level hero. Things seem to be going well just until a ferry accident changes everything. You can check it out in the trailer below.
The ferry sequence and how it plays out seemed like a major spoiler for a lot of viewers. They didn’t like how so much of it was given away.
There’s also the reveal that after the ferry incident Stark appears to ask for Spider-Man to hand back over the Stark-made spidey suit.
The trailer then reveals that Spider-Man has to use some low-level, homemade clothes in order to get the job done against Michael Keaton’s Vulture.
The YouTube comment section is now full of people saying that they’ve already seen the whole movie, and sarcastically thanking Sony and Marvel for revealing all the important bits.
It’s not hard to see where people are coming from, and it’s pretty obvious that the trailer really does give away so many important plot bits. I certainly wouldn’t have included the scene of Stark taking away Spider-Man’s suit. That would have been a good shocker to see in the theater instead of it being revealed in the trailer.
Also, they either should have focused on the motivations behind the Vulture or avoided them altogether. There was a lot of mish-mashed story elements present that didn’t seem too cohesive. It almost gives off some Iron Man 2 vibes, where Mickey Rourke’s character was little more than a footnote for a story geared on setting up the film for the Avengers.
Anyway, the film doesn’t look bad. Tom Holland seems to fit the role of a baby Spider-Man, and if Keaton’s Vulture is handled correctly then it could end up being the highlight of the film. Also, it’s crazy that he just played Birdman in Birdman and now he’s a bird-like man in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
You can look for the movie to drop into theaters on July 7th, 2017.
