Sony released not one but two trailers for next summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming last night – one for folks here in the US and one for international audiences.
Interestingly, while the international trailer is shorter, it does contain some footage not found in the domestic trailer. Also, listen to the music choices for both trailers. The international trailer feels more upbeat and fun while the domestic one is weighted down with the heaviness of the music track.
Both trailers are very upfront with tying Spider-Man into Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, a smart move that may help bring in the casual moviegoer who might not know or care about the whole character-sharing deal between Marvel and Sony.
It is also interesting to note that Sony is giving lots of things away in the trailer, such as good solid look at Michael Keaton’s villain, the Vulture.
Here’s the studio’s official plot synopsis for the film –
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
The film also stars Marisa Tomei, Bokeem Woodbine, Hannibal Buress, Abraham Attah, Tony Revolori, Michael Barbieri, and Angourie Rice.
