Spider-Man: Homecoming- Trailer 2


Anyone who has read this site for a while knows how much I love the character of Spider-Man. He's the superhero I grew up reading, and I have always connected with him. He is very important to me, so, subsequently, it is important to me that the movies do him justice. I was very happy when we heard that Spider-Man would be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While I love the first two Sam Raimi-directed Spider-Man movies, the last three outings by Sony have not been the best, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 being truly horrendous. So I was ready for Marvel to take a crack at him. For what screen time he had in Captain America: Civil War, I thought Tom Holland was fantastic as the Webslinger. Keep in mind, he only had between fifteen to twenty minutes of screen time, so it's really too early to be heralding him as the best incarnation we've ever had of Spider-Man, as some eager fans have taken to saying. Spider-Man: Homecoming will give us a really good indication as to whether or not that is actually true. I am very excited to see the film. It's my second most anticipated film of the year, behind Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Even though I think it will be very good, I doubt it will match the pure magic of the first two Raimi films. Even if it can't be the best Spider-Man movie ever, it doesn't need to be. It can still be a very good movie, and I'm looking forward to it. And today, we got another trailer for the movie.

I really liked this trailer. I definitely enjoyed the first half of it more so than the second. All the shots of Spider-Man swinging around and being, as Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) calls him, the "friendly neighborhood Spider-Man", were fantastic because that is the character! That is Spider-Man! Tom Holland looks great as Peter Parker. I think they've captured a lot of the nuances of the character, which is something that The Amazing Spider-Man movies really didn't understand. The action also looks really good. I do think this trailer gave away a little too much, however. The whole part concerning giving up his suit and the boat scene feels like it's the middle of the movie, and that it's a major character arc for Peter. I didn't need to know all the ins and outs of it from the trailer. I love the concept of it, and I think it will be really powerful in the film, but I want to experience it in the movie. This trailer also highlights Iron Man way too much. His screen time in the last trailer was perfect. It was just enough for us to know that he's in it, without him stealing the show. Here, he kind of steals the spotlight away from Spider-Man. I think they're also running the risk of showing all of his scenes, because I don't think we're getting like an hour of Iron Man in the movie. Robert Downey Jr. will probably be in Homecoming for as long as Holland was in Civil War, and I don't want them to show all of his scenes in the trailers. Overall, I thought it was a really good trailer, but I think it did show more than it needed to.
