Comic-Con: First 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Footage Swings Into Hall H [VIDEO]By Shunie Pearl C. Dela Cruz, UniversityHerald Reporter
An interesting comeback was made for Marvel's wall-crawler Spiderman last Saturday night at Marvel's Hall H presentation at San Diego. The director himself Jon Watts, together with Tom Holland who portrays the role of the web-slinging hero, led the introduction by saying, "Hey everyone!" the line said by Spider-man in his appearance in the movie Captain America: Civil War.
Before the screening, Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios president thanked Amy Pascal of Sony for allowing the return of the character to Marvel future adventures in the big screen.
According to Watts, 'Spider-man: Homecoming' is "a straight-up high-school movie" that opened its abode to the ground-level scenes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"Every story, every hero, has a beginning." The screening footage tells the story of Peter Parker's daily life - a normal 15-year old high school student who is secretly making web fluid in science class, a naïve student who is usually biting his tongue while overhearing the girls in the gym share crushes on the Avengers and in order to save the day, the one who goes out early from his class.
This cinematic incarnation of the Marvel iconic superhero was traced back from its comic book roots featuring a high school loser who fights crime in disguise as an outlet for his anxiety and frustration. However, there's one thing that the fans should find out. How the role of Tony Stark, Esq. - Robert Downy Jr. will bridge the appearance of Spider-man in Civil War into the Homecoming.
Aside from Robert Downy Jr.'s patronage, the strong cast that made the plot interesting also includes Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Tony Revolori, Logan Marshall-Green and 'Nice Guys Breakout' actress Angourie Rice. According to Hollywood Reporter, Rice's character is still being kept under wraps.
'Spider-man: Homecoming' a film with co-production of Marvel Studios and Sony's Columbia Pictures will hit the theaters on July 7, 2017.
