Looks like even our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man isn’t above lying down on the job once in a while. Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have just unveiled two new posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and one of them sees Tom Holland’s web-slinger taking a break and listening to music as Avengers Tower looms in the background. We also have a look at some photos of a Spidey toy that gives us our best look yet at the primitive, homemade version of his costume he was rocking before Tony Stark hooked him up with a better suit.

The first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming showed us quite a bit from the upcoming franchise reboot of Marvel’s webslinger that’s being done in collaboration with Sony Pictures this time. We know Robert Downey Jr. will be helping out a bit, even though he’s ultimately trying to deter young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as he is anxious to get involved in helping to keep the world safe all while living the life of a teenager who is still in high school.
Even though Peter Parker is keen to prove himself as an Avenger, the bad guys in New York City might prove to be too much to handle for the wallcrawler. Michael Keaton will certainly be a formidable threat as the villain Vulture, but there’s another antagonist in town who will create trouble too. The villain Shocker will appear, and he’s being played by Bokeem Woodbine. There’s a quick shot of him in the Spider-Man: Homecoming international trailer, but some new promo art gives us a much better glimpse at a different look he’ll wear in the movie. Read More »

The debut of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War allowed the webslinger played by Tom Holland to get quite a suit upgrade when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) recruited him to help in his fight against Steve Rogers. As we’ve seen in the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, there have been even more additions to the suit, including web wings, a staple of the classic comics version of Spidey. And now a new promo video reveals some of the other key upgrades we’ll see in the wallcrawler’s first solo outing on the big screen.
To go along with the Consumer Electronics Show going on this week, Marvel has released a video looking at a few of the changes to Spider-Man’s suit. They highlight some details that we already knew about, such as the web wings and the holographic display that was teased in the credits scene that played after Captain America: Civil War, but there are a couple new details we didn’t know about as well.

The first weekend of theatrical releases in 2017 arrives in just a couple days, but since it’s January, we’re still getting rollover from awards season mixed with garbage that doesn’t deserve a release date at any other time.

The reception for the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer (watch it here) appears to have been exactly what Sony Pictures was hoping for, because today they announced a release date for the sequel. That’s right, even though Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t arrive until July of next year, Sony Pictures is so confident in their collaboration with Marvel Studios to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe that they’ve staked out a date in the summer of 2019.
That’s not the only summer sequel release date news from Sony Pictures either, because the placement of the Spider-Man Homecoming sequel in the summer of 2019 has resulted in the studio shifting their release of Bad Boys 4, the sequel to a sequel that hasn’t even started shooting yet.
Find out both the Bad Boys 4 and Spider-Man Homecoming sequel release date after the jump. Read More »

The first two trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming arrived late last night and they’re wonderful, somehow managing to make another Spider-Man movie look appealing so soon after The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Then again, the debut of Tom Holland’s new webslinger in Captain America: Civil War was a perfect palate cleanser, depicting a version of the character audiences actually wanted to see while finally integrating him into Marvel Studios’ increasingly large universe.
And where there’s a new trailer, there’s a new trailer breakdown, where we go through the footage frame-by-frame and attempt to discern exactly what’s going on here. Most of this Spider-Man Homecoming trailer breakdown follows the domestic trailer, but we’ll also borrow a few snippets from the international trailer.

How times change. Just two years ago, everyone was so bummed out by The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that the thought of another movie starring Marvel’s wall-crawling superhero felt like a chore. And then Marvel Studios and Sony reached a deal, Tom Holland become the new Peter Parker, and the brand new Spider-Man swung into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a supporting player in Captain America: Civil War and somehow managed to make us forget about the previous reboot of this character. We superhero movie fans be sheep, but at least we’re sheep who know what we want.
After being teased the other day, the first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer has officially arrived, giving us our first look at the first solo adventure of the new Spidey.
