Spider-man is coming to town slinging on his web. YAY!
So, Tom Holland is back as Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the fourth instalment of the Phase Three of Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man Homecoming introduces us with a new villain in town- The Vulture (Michael Keaton). Holland was cast as Spider-Man in Marvel Cinematic Universe and first made an appearance in Captain America: Civil War. Robert Downey Jr. is back as Tony Stark on the screen along with Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine and Marisa Tomei.
That poster sure is a sight to behold. Here are some reasons to look out for Spider-Man Homecoming:
- Boy turns hero– We all love Peter Parker because he resonates with real humans with seemingly mundane lives and insignificant existence. One fine day, he gets bitten by a radioactive spider and BAM! He becomes a web-slinging Superhero. Not just that, his superhuman alter-ego is also conversationally hilarious. Unlike heroes pitched against each other in deadly battles, Spider-Man makes his enemies feel right at home with his chatty personality and humorous one-liners.
2. Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man– After his appearance in Captain America: Civil War, Holland has us at the edge of our seats to see his performance in Spider-Man: Homecoming. He plays a younger version of Peter Parker. Holland plays the role of a younger Spider-Man and he nails it. He is the right amount of goofy and excited. His brimming excitement on meeting his revered superheroes is something all Marvel fans will relate with. He even live streams the airport battle in Captain America: Civil War. HOW VERY RELATABLE!
Now that’s adorable.
3. New Baddie in town– Well technically, Vulture is not a new villain. He first appeared in the 2nd issue of the Amazing Spider-Man comic in 1963. However, he is new to the Spider-Man films. Vulture is the alias of Adrian Toomes is the former owner of Toomes Salvage Company who has sworn revenge against Tony Stark for running him out of business. He is played by Michael Keaton who is no newbie to playing a villain in movies. Also, by the means of Vulture, Marvel has painted a binary of Tony Stark. Vulture too is a rich and resourceful man but unlike Tony Stark, he chooses to invest his powers in enabling himself to carry out his diabolical plans.
4. Ned- Ned, Spidey’s buddy is the only one from the non-superhuman world to have learnt his secret and he is as surprised as one could be. Having Peter discuss his alter-ego and its problems with someone as sweet and hilarious as Ned, would be a total joy ride.
5. The coolest mentor ever– Tony Stark is back and how! Tony Stark is keeping Peter busy, under the pretext of Stark Internship to justify the long duration of absences our boy wonder needs to save the world from crime and wrongdoing. Stark is composed, calculated and an amazing mentor. He is sure to keep Spidey in line. His dialogue in Spider-Man Homecoming’s trailer to our boy hero stole the show, “If you’re nothing without this suit, you shouldn’t have it.”
Now that’s a terrific mentor.
6.The all-new Spidey Suit– Spidey’s new suit is phenomenal. It has Iron Man like vision and navigation systems. It has a parachute that activates once Vulture drops Spider-Man from the sky. And as if that is not enough, it has a spider embossed on the chest which has the ability to turn into a drone. One up for Spider-Man. WOAH!
