‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Footage Premieres, Here’s What It Showed

Brand new footage for Spider-Man: Homecoming has premiered, and the lucky folks over at Brazil’s CCXP were the ones that got to drink it all in before anyone else.

Luckily for those of us that weren’t there, Ryan Penagos, who works as the Vice President & Executive Editor of Marvel Digital Media, was present to share with the online world what he saw.

Ryan Penagos started things rolling by revealing that Tom Holland, who will be portraying Peter Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, recorded a short introduction that was played just before the clip.

Then he revealed that the clip opened with Spider-Man talking to Happy Hogan, who is the chauffeur/bodyguard for Tony Stark, aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), and has been played by Jon Favreau throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It would seem as though Happy Hogan was dropping off something for Peter Parker from Tony Stark because then Ryan Penagos revealed that our titular hero opens up a case that’s from Tony Stark and includes an “upgrade” for Spider-Man.

Spider-Man wastes no time in putting it to use, too, as the clip then showed the superhero swinging off of buildings and doing his thing, while he also now has “web wings,” too. Ryan Penagos clearly got caught up in the awesomeness of the footage, though, because he admitted that he couldn’t quite recall specific shots, but did note that he was hugely impressed by what he saw.

But while Ryan Penagos couldn’t keep track of the Spider-Man: Homecoming teaser, other individuals that were present at the event had his back. According to Cinemablend, the trailer also showed Spider-Man on top of the Washington Monument while a helicopter flew behind him. The teaser footage then reportedly concluded with Spider-Man doing a backflip off the back of the Monument, which then activated his web wings.

The big question regarding the above footage is why would Spider-Man be in Washington D.C.? Maybe he is there trying to provide an update on the villain of the film, Vulture, played by Michael Keaton, to the President. Or maybe Peter Parker was simply on a school trip from New York to Washington D.C. when something rather tragic occurred, which provoked him to don his Spider-Man outfit so that he could save the day.

At the moment, everything is purely speculative, but it’s interesting to hear that Spider-Man: Homecoming will be moving out of New York City, even if it’s just for a scene, as the five previous Spider-Man films have each been firmly set in the Big Apple. For those of you that aren’t aware or have short memories, Toby Maguire previously portrayed Spider-Man as part of Sam Raimi’s original trilogy of films, before he was replaced by Andrew Garfield for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

After The Amazing Spider-Man 2 didn’t fare quite as well as expected at the box office back in 2014, Sony made the decision to loan the character to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We had our very first taste of how Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will interact with the likes of Captain America, Iron Man, Falcon, and The Winter Soldier in Captain America: Civil War earlier this summer.

Since then, director Jon Watts, Marvel’s head honcho Kevin Feige, Tom Holland, and hundreds of other members of the blockbuster’s cast and crew have been working tirelessly on Spider-Man: Homecoming. Fans have long grown impatient of when the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming will finally be with us, but with its release date of July 7, 2017, slowly getting closer and closer there have been rumors that it will finally be attached to Rogue One, which is due out on December 16.
