spider-man in iron man 2

Back in 2010, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was still an ambitious experiment somehow surviving the dire Iron Man 2 and Spider-Man was caught in a limbo between Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man. Despite their shared origins, these two franchises were never going to intersect. Sony owned Spidey and Marvel Studios was its own thing. The deal that would bring both companies together was still years, and a few poorly received Spider-Man movies, away.

That didn’t stop fans from fantasizing, though. Surely Spider-Man was somewhere to be found in the burgeoning MCU. One fan theory even suggested that a young Peter Parker showed up in the climax of Iron Man 2. And now, with Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man now a full-fledged member of the MCU, that theory has been confirmed! With a caveat.

spider man homecoming nba finals

Some of the most cringeworthy parts of summer blockbuster season are the weak marketing tie-ins. You know what I’m talking about: that Captain America: Civil War trailer that was actually a glorified Audi car commercial and that ill-advised Dunkirk TV spot that equated the horrors of war with basketball.

But when it comes to cross-marketing promotions, the Spider-Man: Homecoming NBA Finals TV spots actually aren’t that bad. In fact, they’re kinda’ delightful. And now, we can see the full extended spot that follows Peter Parker’s mini-adventures as he just tries to get to Mr. Stark’s game-watching party.
