article image‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ trailer is packed with villainous mayhem Special

By Sarah Gopaul     Apr 1, 2017 in Entertainment
The second trailer for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ is more solemn, focusing on the difficulties of being new at a job that demands immediate perfection.
Considering the number of Spider-Man movies that have been released in the last 15 years, including two reboots, it wasn’t entirely surprising they decided to introduce the new actor in a Marvel team-up instead of a standalone film. But now it’s time for Tom Holland to don the blue and red suit in his own picture… with a little help from Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). One of the most reassuring things about the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer is it doesn’t appear audiences will be forced to sit through yet another origin story.
While the first trailer focused on Peter Parker’s attempts to balance being a normal high school teenager with his newfound superhero role, the second one is about the villain and his effect on Peter’s life. A large percentage of the footage is repeated, but in a new context. The Vulture (Michael Keaton) is trying to take back from the world what he feels he’s owed, though his plan involves inflicting a lot of carnage. And now, instead of just being Peter’s mentor slash fun surrogate uncle, Tony Stark is scolding the amateur hero for what he deems is irresponsible behaviour — even though it looks like Spider-Man is doing his best to stop the criminals that cross his path, not incite them.
This trailer has a much graver tone than the first with Peter struggling beneath the weight of imperfect heroism and Tony piling on with a harsh lecture. The Vulture is definitely the star villain, but viewers also get an incredibly brief glimpse of Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine)… though Tinkerer (Michael Chernus) still remains behind the scenes. Hopefully the boy in tights won’t be spread too thin. The film opens on July 7, 2017.
