Spider-Man: Homecoming has some pretty lofty expectations. After the misfire that was The Amazing Spider-Man duology, fans are eager to see how the wall-crawler is utilized in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What kind of tone can we expect? Well, today gives us our first idea of what to expect from the flick.
The first poster for the film was revealed at a trade show in Las Vegas. An official release isn’t out yet, but take a look at this snapshot:
If there’s one thing this poster gets across, it’s a playful attitude. Spider-Man is one of the most jovial superheroes in the Marvel roster. It’s great to see his lighthearted demeanor come across in this initial piece of marketing. He’s even winking a bit! Adorable.
Seeing where the marketing for the film goes is going to be interesting. Humor has always been a strong element of Spider-Man’s character, so it’s likely that Spider-Man: Homecoming will be showcasing Tom Holland‘s excellent comedic skills. Holland was a delight in Captain America: Civil War. There’s no reason to think he won’t be as enjoyable in his solo effort.
When will we get to see the other characters from the film? We’ve seen some concept art of the Vulture and a few set photos. It’s certain we’ll be getting a trailer before the year is out. Maybe it will be attached to Rogue One? That would be some prime visual real estate. Or it could be sooner and premiere with Doctor Strange. That seems more likely. Regardless, fans are ready to devour our first in-depth look at Spider-Man: Homecoming. We want all the Spidey we can get!
Spider-Man: Homecoming will swing into theaters on July 7. Make sure to bring plenty of extra web cartridges. Don’t you hate it when you run out web cartridges at the worst possible moment?
