Anticipating Spider-Man: Homecoming (and then presumably Spider-Man: Prom)

I don't like the title and I hope it changes but it probably won't but whatever. It's time we had a thread for it anyway. I hope it's an improvement to what's been happening to Spidey cinematically.

So we have Marissa Tomei as Aunt May, Michael Keaton cast as an unspecified villain (rumor has it it's the Vulture), and the kids below cast as unspecified classmates:

(in an adversarial role, possibly Flash Thompson?)

Glad to see Marvel's mixing it up with some diversity.

Maybe this will be the film where we finally learn how Spider-Man got his powers.

Word is they are shockingly skipping the whole origin thing this time!

the movie takes pace after Spidy has hung up his webs and taken a job in the financial sector iirc

He defeats his enemies by making bad investments on their behalf.

Keaton isn't happening (boo). Iron Man will be in the movie in some capacity.

Michael Keaton is officially back in as the Vulture. There are (almost assuredly unsubstantiated) rumblings about D'onofrio showing up as Kingpin.

If that happens, it'd be the first time the TV series cross over to the movies, and not vice versa.

Tuomas, Wednesday, 25 May 2016 18:22 (two years ago) Permalink

Spidey's turn in Civil War was far and away my favourite ever screen depiction of the character, they nailed it. Really looking forward to this as a result.

That link doesn't work for me, but Nick Fury and the Helicarrier in Avengers 2 should count, even if it wasn't the best example of either medium.

Andrew Farrell, Wednesday, 25 May 2016 23:02 (two years ago) Permalink

That was about as effective a link as the unnamed helicarrier used in Deadpool's climax

Nhex, Thursday, 26 May 2016 16:18 (two years ago) Permalink

i don't even watch agents of shield but just showing a couple of them on the helicarrier would've been such an easy gesture that it's stupid they didn't do it. i hope in spider-man:home-coming there's at least a line about some guy in hell's kitchen. i also hope we finally find out how he became spider-man.

balls, Thursday, 26 May 2016 17:54 (two years ago) Permalink

Don't worry, I'm pretty sure I heard they're going to be expanding his origin into a trilogy of movies. I think this first one is mostly about the spider before it becomes irradiated.

Wet Food (Old Lunch), Thursday, 26 May 2016 19:19 (two years ago) Permalink

Part two largely concerns pre-teen Peter Parker's ironic dislike of arachnids.

And it all comes to a head as he's seconds away from being bitten when the end credits for the third movie begin to roll.

Ah. I think Tuomas was referring specifically to the MCU. I thought by now at least one incidental character from the TV shows would've popped up in a movie but nope. I think I thought Sitwell first showed up on AoS but I realized recently that he was a fairly nondescript SHIELD dude walking around in a couple of the early films.

actually, looking into it a bit more, it seems that jacob batalon is in fact playing ned leeds of all people - i just assumed he must be playing ganke cuz he looks very much like ganke and he seems to have a similar dorky-best-friend role

much as i enjoyed tom holland as peter parker in civil war i still kinda wish this movie was about miles morales tho

yeah would rather see miles morales but idk at least the trailer makes it feel basically like a spider-man movie and not just a pile of nonsense like the last one. also glad to see john portman's atlanta marriott marquis getting its due. gotta say it'd be nice if they found a way to finally include spider-man's origin story, though.

Actually, they are (or at least were) making an animated Miles Morales film. It was supposed to be released next year but has been pushed back.

i think that's exactly the reason why i'm not exactly thrilled by what i've seen so far, cuz we've had five spider-man movies (six if you count civil war) in the last fifteen years and this does seem to be a remix of elements of all of them, with added marvel universe star power and the best peter parker yet. as huge a spider-man stan as ai am i dunno if that's gonna be enough!

an animated spider-man movie with a quarter of the fun and invention of cloudy with a chance of meatballs would be fantastic. imdb has virtually no info on it and apparently chris lord is writing but someone else is making their directorial debut on it. i guess i won't hold my breath on seeing miles on-screen either live-action or animated anytime soon...

I have no idea where Venom fits in with the spider-flicks at this point, but I caught it on a plane last night and it was about what I expected- the Marvel movie it reminded me most of was Blade. Cheap, kind of fun, mostly silly, with a relentlessly, needlessly grim n gritty attitude. The best part was Venom offering his rationale for siding with Brock by saying "on my planet I'm kind of a loser".

This movie and its actors was announced ages ago, I can't imagine even the most gullible viewer actually thought Peter Parker died for good in Infinity War and the sequel will star Ben Reilly the Spider-clone or something. So seeing him in the trailer doesn't really spoil anything. (I guess the fact Nick Fury appears in it is a minor spoiler though, since they could've potentially have him die for good.)
