Dropped only hours ahead of the film’s first official trailer debut, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have released a great new Spider-Man: Homecoming photo in today’s issue of USA Today and have also shared some new details about the film in general and specifically about Michael Keaton’s Vulture. Marvel and Sony have opted to forego the usual origin storyline and will kick off this film with Peter Parker returning to his home in Queens just after his big adventure and public debut in the midst of the Avenger’s team squabble seen in Captain America: Civil War: “The coming-of-age story features Peter attending his high school for gifted kids, trying to impress his new benefactor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and also dealing with a pesky arch enemy, the Vulture (Michael Keaton).”
Star Tom Holland revealed that it’s “more a character piece about this kid who’s struggling to talk to girls and also struggling to save the city… This is really a movie where Spider-Man’s not the finished article. He really does learn and he makes massive mistakes. It’s nice to see a kid do that and then try to rectify those mistakes.”
Holland also gave us some inside poop on Keaton’s Adrian Toomes/The Vulture. “The first time we see the Vulture is terrifying. It’s like a horror movie: really scary, very intense and shocking.” Director Jon Watts chimed in with: “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.” Makes perfect sense to me.
