Spider-Man Homecoming

This morning, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios released two final trailers (one domestic and one international) for Spider-Man: Homecoming, their collaboration in rebooting the Spider-Man franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and each of them is completely different. Rather than doing our usual frame-by-frame analysis of the entirety of both trailers, we’re just going to pick out the finer points of each, noting the new details, action, story hints and more.

Our Spider-Man Homecoming final trailer breakdown begins below.

The international trailer opens up with a hilarious sequence of scenes featuring Spider-Man recording himself at the big airport battle in Captain America: Civil War. We get to see the stand-off between theĀ Avengers as Spidey waits in the wings for his cue from Tony Stark to make his entrance. Then we get another video of Peter recording himself in the middle of the battle just before Ant-Man turns into Giant Man, which catches the webslinger off guard a little bit.

After the battle, Peter Parker is more than excited as he recounts what just happened during the Civil War battle. Is he making these videos just for himself? Because otherwise, he’d be revealing his secret identity to anyone who was watching them. Is this something that today’s generation does that I’m not aware of because I’m in my early 30s? Do teenagers have video diaries that are intended to be viewed only by themselves?

Anyway, Happy Hogan shows up during this recording, and he’s clearly frustrated because the walls of the hotel they’re staying in are paper thin. This would have to be immediately after the events of Civil War, but the majority of Spider-Man: Homecoming is meant to take place a few months after the superhero battle. However, I think the conversation in Tony Stark’s car happens before the rest of the movie, perhaps when they return to NYC after being out of the country for a bit.

Back in New York City, with his new suit provided by Tony Stark, Spider-Man is doing his best to be a hero. However, without any superheroes or villains to fight this time, his time in the suit is mostly spent handling small time problems, like stopping a dude from stealing a bike, or helping an old woman find her way around the city.

Peter seems desperate to impress Tony Stark, which meansĀ him giving the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist a rundown of what he’s been doing around the city. He explains the aforementioned little heroics he tackled as he explains that the old woman he helped bought him a churro, which sounds so good right now.

Since Peter is also in school and his friend Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) usually wants to hang out, how is he getting away with disappearing to occasionally fight crime? Well, he tells him that he’s doing an internship with Mr. Stark. Of course, that excuse will go out the window later since we know that Ned Leeds learns that Peter is actually Spider-Man.

In fact, it’s Ned who helps Peter hack into the new Spider-Man suit given to him by Tony Stark. The two teen nerds learn that there’s a “training wheels protocol” active on the suit that is keeping him from utilizing the full potential of the technology within it. This is a high-tech suit too, as we see in a few different moments in each of the trailers.

In the early moments of the domestic trailer, the AI voice in Spidey’s suit says that he has 576 different webshooter combinations. Presumably they all have varying strengths and uses. I’m a little torn about this feature, because it kinda takes away from the ingenuity that Peter Parker had in the comics by making his own webshooters, but it’s not going to ruin my enjoyment of the movie.

Another piece of tech in the suit is revealed when Vulture snags Spider-Man out of the air while he’s swinging around a neighborhood somewhere. Caught off guard, Spidey is hanging by his feet from the Vulture’s claws, and as he climbs higher, the suit deploys a parachute out of the spider symbol on his back, allowing him to escape.
