Spider-Man Homecoming Cameos

Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t hit theaters until July 7, but the early buzz has already started after the social media embargo was lifted Friday night, revealing the first reactions from critics who have already seen the movie. Full reviews will arrive sometime next week.

In the meantime, the full cast list for Spider-Man: Homecoming that was given out in press notes to critics seeing the movie have revealed a few interesting details. However, a couple of them venture into spoiler territory, including news of at least one cameo that we didn’t know about before. So if you don’t want to know about these Spider-Man Homecoming cameos or other cast details, don’t read any further. Read More »

Spider-Man Homecoming Credits Scene

Marvel Studios has turned the superhero moviemaking engine into a finely tuned machine. From the sound of things, Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t deviate from their tried and true course of showing everyone else in the business how it’s done. Despite being a collaboration with Sony (who owns the Spidey movie rights), Peter Parker’s first solo adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is earning raves more in line with Guardians of the Galaxy than The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

And that may be putting it mildly. The early reactions have been nothing short of ecstatic.

Spider-Man Homecoming Credits Scene

It’s a foregone conclusion that a Marvel Studios movie is going to have some kind of scene that happens during or after the credits. Sometimes it’s even both, as in the case of Guardians of the Galaxy, and this summer’s sequel to the cosmic Marvel movie even upped the ante by having a record five scenes scattered throughout the credits. Now it appears Marvel’s summer collaboration with Sony Pictures will follow suit.

At Sydney’s Supanova Comic-Con, director Jon Watts appeared via Skype and said there would be at least one Spider-Man: Homecoming credits scene “worth sticking around for,” but it seems like there may be more than one for audiences to see. Find out more below. Read More »

Sphero Spider-Man

Ever since Sphero made a splash with the interactive BB-8 droid toy that arrived before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters, they’ve become a household name in cool, albeit pricey, electronic toys. Just recently they unveiled their interactive Lightning McQueen remote controlled car, and now they have a Spider-Man: Homecoming inspired gizmo too.

The Sphero Spider-Man toy is an interactive little gadget that talks to you and reacts to your voice commands. You can ask Spidey to tell you a joke, ask trivia questions, give you the time, guard your room, wake you up and more. Beyond those basic capabilities, Spidey will also go on missions, play games, tell stories and do other things that will change how he interacts with you as time goes on.

Check out the Sphero Spider-Man toy in action after the jump. Read More »

Spider-Man Homecoming Score

This year we’re getting three new scores from composer Michael Giacchino. You can hear one of them in theaters this weekend with the arrival of Colin Trevorrow’s The Book of Henry, which isn’t getting very good reviews. But the next one will arrive in theaters early next month.

Spider-Man: Homecoming features a score from Michael Giacchino, complete with all of his punny track titles on the soundtrack. For those interested, the full tracklist has been released, and it doesn’t include any major spoilers for those worried about that kind of thing. Furthermore, the full Spider-Man: Homecoming suite is available for your listening pleasure, giving us a preview of some of the orchestral themes we’ll hear throughout the film.

New Spider-Man Trilogy

This summer will bring Spider-Man: Homecoming, the solo debut of the new webslinger played by Tom Holland after his introduction in Captain America: Civil War, to theaters. This new beginning marks a unique collaboration between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, but just how far will it go?

There’s already a Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel set for release in 2019, and before that, Spidey will make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War. But as Kevin Feige said during a press day visit to the Marvel Studios offices on the Disney lot, “That’s as far as it goes for now.” However, if Tom Holland is to be believed, it sounds like the Spider-Man deal will go at least one movie beyond that.

Spider-Man Homecoming featurette

Tom Holland’s spunky, excitable Spider-Man swings back into theaters next month in a brand new cinematic adventure, but anyone who’s even remotely been paying attention knows that Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man is going to play a big part in Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Today, Downey took to Twitter to share a new featurette for the film that hones in on the mentor/mentee relationship between the two superheroes, so if this morning’s 22-minute fan’s guide didn’t satiate your thirst for all things Spidey, take a nice, cool sip of this video and see if that does the trick.

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.

Spider-Man Homecoming NBA Finals Spot

Continuing the onslaught of marketing between now and the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming next month, a new promo for the film that aired during the NBA Finals has arrived online, continuing the narrative of Peter Parker (Tom Holland) being invited to Tony Stark’s party for the big games.

In the last Spider-Man Homecoming NBA Finals spot, Spidey was sent out by Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) to get snacks for the party, specifically for Tim Duncan for some reason, but ended up having to thwart a robbery. In the new spot, the wallcrawler has finally arrived at a generic bodega to get the snacks, and he runs into a familiar face, as well as some fans.
