Marvel has become quite free in showing off set video and photos from their upcoming movies during production. And Spider-Man: Homecoming is no exception. We’ve already seen plenty behind-the-scenes footage and images from this latest Peter Parker reboot being shot in conjunction with Sony Pictures as part of Marvel Phase 3. Today, we have two more set videos from both the superhero adventure’s leading man and its director.
First up, director Jon Watts shares a new video from a recent green screen shoot. This Instagram sneak peek shows star Tom Holland in civilian clothes sitting on a crate. Above him lingers an ominous shadow. Is this our first tease of Michael Keaton as The Vulture? Or are we getting an advanced glimpse at The Tinkerer. Other Spider-Man villains rumored for this first stand alone adventure include Carnage and The Shocker.
The second video has Tom Holland on set going over what promises to be one of Homecoming‘s big stunt pieces. It will require the actor to use the trampoline for a flip. As we’ve seen in previous teases, the young actor is a great gymnast and knows how to do a stunning flip as well as mid-air kicks. Sadly, we don’t get to see what these guys are planning.
The full plot of Spider-Man: Homecoming has not been revealed at this time, but from the sounds of it, we’ll be introduced to quite the rogues gallery from the Marvel Comics. It has been confirmed that Spider-Man will be squaring off with both The Vulture and The Tinkerer as he contends with high school life. While high on action, the reboot is also described as being in the same vein as a John Hughes teenage comedy. Michael Chernus is playing the Tinkerer, while Michael Keaton takes on the role of The Vulture.
The massive Spider-Man: Homecoming cast also includes Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Zendaya as Michelle Gonzales (aka Mary Jane Watson), Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds and Laura Harrier as Liz Allan. The cast also includes Michael Barbieri, Martin Starr, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendenborg Jr., J.J. Totah, Donald Glover, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Bokeem Wodbine, Michael Mando and Abraham Attah in unspecified roles. Rumors have surfaced that Michael Mando is playing the villain Carnage, while Abaraham Attah is rumored to play Miles Morales, but it isn’t known when we’ll get confirmation on these characters.
Jon Watts (Cop Car) is directing Spider-Man: Homecoming from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation). Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing, with Marvel and Sony setting a July 7, 2017 release date. The Marvel Cinematic Universe at large will also be represented in Spider-Man: Homecoming, with Robert Downey Jr. returning as Tony Stark/Iron Man, and there have also been rumors that Scarlet Johansson will be back as Black Widow. It isn’t known how much filming is left in Atlanta on Spider-Man: Homecoming. Take a look at the latest set video, which teases bigger and scarier things to come in the future.
