Now that Spider-Man: Homecoming is out on home video (and Screen Junkies has taken care of their workplace sexual harassment scandal), we can take the time to enjoy some fun being poked at your friendly neighborhood wallcrawler.
The Spider-Man: Homecoming Honest Trailer has no problem reminding us that this is the second time the comic franchise has been rebooted this decade, not to mention honing in on the fact that this new millennial Spider-Man doesn’t ever really seem to suffer any consequences for his mistakes and ill-advised actions.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a certified hit all around. Not only is it sitting high with a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, but the movie has already pulled in over $472 million worldwide after being in theaters for just under two weeks. The success of the movie can definitely be attributed to the reboot of the webslinger being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but one of the main reasons the movie turned out so well is because of director Jon Watts, and both Sony and Marvel have decided to keep him around.

Spider-Man: Homecoming has enough buzz and critical praise — as well as estimates of a $100 million opening weekend at the box office — to all but greenlight and usher in the next few Spider-Man movies with star Tom Holland. But while fans are clamoring for more, director Jon Watts still won’t confirm if he’ll return to helm the sequel.
It’s lucky then that we have Holland and his notoriously loose lips to give us hope that Watts will be back to direct the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel. Marvel should really keep a tight leash on this kid.

For some fans, it goes without saying that Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t just a title that describes what’s happening in the high school life of the superhero’s young alter ego Peter Parker (Tom Holland). It’s also evocative of the fact that the webslinger is finally back home where he belongs, in the same cinematic universe as his other Marvel Comics comrades, the Avengers.
Spider-Man: Homecoming gives us the spectacular version of the webslinger that fans have been waiting to see. It stands out from the rest of the adaptations, including the more favored original iteration directed by Sam Raimi and portrayed by Tobey Maguire, simply because it introduces a dynamic that has been lacking from the Spider-Man franchises thus far. Not only does it combine the trials and tribulations of high school life with the dangers of being a secret superhero, but it also gives Spider-Man a much larger world to play in, one that may be more intimidating than the wallcrawler himself even realizes.

It’s a major moment in Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s marketing campaign: Tom Holland’s Spidey and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man soar through the skies of New York City side-by-side, off to save the day. The only problem is that this moment never actually happens in the film.
In a new interview, Homecoming director Jon Watts (Cop Car) explains why this – and one other shot from the trailers – didn’t end up making the final cut in the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He’s not entirely alone though, since Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is serving as his mentor, by way of having his former bodyguard and head of security Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) keep tabs on the teenage superhero.
Tony Stark recruited Peter Parker to help in his fight against Captain America as The Avengers found themselves on two different sides of a massive disagreement regarding their place in the world. Now we get to see what happened in between Tony Stark’s visit to Queens in New York and the big airport brawl in Berlin, Germany, as well as a couple moments during and after the fight, thanks to Peter Parker’s secret, personal video blogs that help open up Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Last night’s MTV Movie & TV Awards brought the first clip from Spider-Man: Homecoming featuring Peter Parker (Tom Holland) trying to sneak back into his room, only to accidentally reveal that he’s Spider-Man to his friend Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon). Now we get another look at this summer’s reboot of the Spider-Man franchise with a TV spot that shows off some new footage.
In this spot, we get to see Spider-Man taking on some small-time criminals while still being hungry for the next “retreat” that he gets to go on with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and the Avengers. But the best part is the funny gag at the end where Spider-Man inadvertently scares the hell out of some kids camping in their backyard.

In this new Spider-Man Homecoming clip, we get to see Spider-Man trying to sneak back into his room, hitting a major snag in trying to keep his identity secret.
