appears twice on the poster, and one time he's literally on fire. The Vulture hangs over his chest, Logan Marshall-Green is shown firing a giant gun, and the skylines of both Washington D.C. and New York City are shown in the background. It's literally so bad. Nonetheless, a new Spider-Man movie won't be hurt by one awful poster, and the third (and presumably) final trailer that accompanied it is actually pretty decent. Check it out below!
Okay, so here's my breakdown of the positives and negatives for Homecoming:
-High school stuff
-Chemistry with Zendaya and Jacob Batalon
-Anything with Tony Stark
-The fact that Tony made his Spidey suit
-Seriously, why does Tony have such a large role?
Look, I love Iron Man. I didn't mind when Marvel turned the third installment in the Captain America trilogy into a glorified Avengers movie by including Tony and the rest of the heroes. But something about the level of his inclusion in Homecoming irks me, and I hate the idea of Stark being essential to Peter Parker's origin story. Homecoming appears to be fighting a war between two movies- a high school Spider-Man movie and a movie that exists to emphasize how big of a role it plays in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I hope that the stand-alone Spidey stuff comes out on top, but the fact that six writers wrote the screenplay doesn't give me much confidence. Anyways, we'll see how this turns out, but I'm still skeptical.
Spider-Man: Homecoming debuts on July 7.
