It´s Finally Here! The FIRST OFFICIAL Trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming
This is the FIRST trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr. and more, in theaters July 7th.
- A 15-year old who received spider-like abilities after being bitten by a genetically altered spider. Producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal were impressed by Holland’s performances in The Impossible, Wolf Hall, and In the Heart of the Sea, as well as his numerous screen tests for the role. Holland stated he would take inspiration from Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, the previous Spider-Man actors, but that he hoped to deliver something “new and exciting” with his take on the character. Holland elaborated, “This is a very different side to Spider-Man because you’re going to see a kid dealing with everyday problems that a 15-year-old deals with as well as trying to save the city. He’s conflicted because of what it is he’s trying to do and what it is that’s going on with the… Avengers in the universe. Obviously after [Captain America: Civil War] we still don’t really know what’s happening and he’s in the middle of that world. So that’s very exciting to explore that and also just to see a kid in high school figure out what to do with his super powers is really fun.” He is signed for three films, not including his Captain America: Civil War appearance. Holland later expanded, saying he was signed for “three Spider-Man movies and three solo movies”.
- A man with criminal tendencies and a suit consisting of mechanical wings. Director Jon Watts stated that Toomes would be different from other MCU villains like Thanos and Ultron, saying, “It’s fun to think that if Spider-Man is a regular kid who becomes a superhero, there’s got to be a bunch of regular guys who become supervillains, too.”
- Zendaya as Michelle:
- One of Parker’s classmates. Zendaya described the character as “very smart, very intellectual, [and] always in her books.” Zendaya added that Michelle was not intended to be a love interest for Parker, saying, the character “very dry, awkward, intellectual and because she’s so smart, she just feels like she doesn’t need to talk to people… So she comes off very weird. But to me, she is very cool because she’s deep. She’s always thinking about something, always reading.”
- Donald Glover
- Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds: Parker’s best friend and classmate.
- Laura Harrier as Liz Allan: Parker’s love interest and classmate.
- Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson: Parker’s rival and classmate. Revolori spoke about portraying Thompson, who is generally depicted as white in the comics, saying “I know how important the character is to the comic-book fans, so I’m trying to do him justice.” Revolori’s character was originally known as Manuel.
- Tyne Daly
- Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz / Shocker: A thug with powerful shock wave gauntlets.
- Marisa Tomei as May Parker:
- Peter’s aunt. First reports of Tomei’s casting caused backlash on social media, with comic book fans opining that the actress was “too young and attractive to portray the character”, especially after the character had previously been depicted by older actresses than Tomei. Regarding this, Captain America: Civil War co-writer Stephen McFeely said that, for the MCU, they were trying to make Peter “as naturalistic as possible…That’s partly why his aunt isn’t 80 years old; if she’s the sister of his dead mother, why does she have to be two generations ahead?”
- A self-described genius, billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist with electromechanical suits of armor of his own invention and is Parker’s mentor. Sony Pictures chairman Thomas Rothman noted that, beyond the commercial advantage of featuring Downey in the film, the inclusion of Stark was important due to the relationship established between him and Parker in Captain America: Civil War, and felt that the development of that relationship would be a rewarding aspect of the film
