The trailer for the highly-anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming, scheduled to hit theaters on July 7, 2017, has been released.
Thus, we get to see the Marvel Comics character fighting with a band of criminals wearing Avengers masks who rob some ATMs.
“What’s up, guys? Wait a minute. You’re not the real Avengers. I can tell. Hulk gives it away” – says the superhero before starting to give them a lesson.
The upcoming film, set after the events of Captain America: Civil War and following high-school student Peter Parker trying to find a balance in his life, has definitely jokes in the script and the trailer reveals some of them. Robert Downey Jr., who plays Parker’s mentor, tells him, after a conversation in the car, “That’s not a hug, I’m just grabbing the door there for you”, when Peter hugs him.
When Ned, his best friend, sees him on the ceiling and confronts him, we get another portion of humor: “You’re the Spider-Man”, says Ned.
“No, I’m not. This is just a costume”, answers Peter, getting undressed. “You were on the ceiling”, argues Ned, pointing to the ceiling.
“I’m sick of you treating me like a kid all the time”, says Peter to Ned in another conversation. “But you are a kid”, comes his answer.
The superhero teenager is advised to stay close to the ground and out of trouble, but soon after that we see him on the top of a high building, and the trailer reveals also his motivation to do this: “This is my chance to prove myself”.
There is also drama in the trailer in the second part, where Michael Keaton, who plays the supervillain Vulture, threatens the super-hero. “Don’t mess with you cause I will kill you and everybody you love” – says Keaton, whose line is followed by images of the persons Spider-Man loves.
The track used in the trailer is “Time to Pretend” by the American psychedelic rock band MGMT.
