SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Stills Focus On The Wall-Crawler And The Vulture

Some scans from the latest issue of Empire Magazine offer up a fresh look at both Peter Parker and Adrian Toomes in action in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but what do they reveal about the reboot?





Thanks to the latest issue of Empire Magazine, we have some cool new stills from Spider-Man: Homecoming showing off the action taking place both in front and behind the camera. Mostly made up of new shots of both the titular hero and The Vulture, these don't reveal a whole lot about what's to come, but still point to the highly anticipated reboot doing the iconic Marvel superhero justice this July.

Starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., and almost countless others, Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming is directed by Jon Watts and will be released on July 7th, this year.

What do you think of these new Spider-Man: Homecoming images? Share your thoughts down below.

Spidey Spins A Web In Three High-Flying New Promotional Images From SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Three new promotional photos from Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming have been released featuring everyone's friendly neighborhood wall-crawler putting his web-shooters to good use. Come take a look!





A couple new promotional photos from Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming have surfaced online featuring new looks at a fully-costumed Spidey striking fresh poses while utilizing his high-tech web shooters.

The Jon Watts-directed film, which stars Tom Holland in the lead role, recently received an early box office forecast that predicted a $135 million+ opening for the wall-crawler's first MCU solo outing, but that number will undoubtedly go up as we approach the early July release date. Either way, it's already expected by many to potentially have the Spider-Man franchise's biggest domestic opening weekend since 2007's Spider-Man 3 ($151.1M), which is certainly exciting news.

In a recent interview with Empire, Holland revealed that if everything goes according to plan that he hoped to play the character for at least two more decades. "Peter Parker is a character we see [in the comic books] as a 15-year-old boy and then as a 35-year-old man. So I have an idea of what I'd like to do, and I've pitched it and it's already been taken into the boardroom. It would be really cool if it pans out, because it means I would be Spider-Man for a very long time."

Check out the new images below:

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.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Makes A Major Change To Flash Thompson



If you are familiar with Spider-Man, then you know the teenage superhero has had it rough. Aside from his tragic family history, Peter Parker didn’t have the greatest high school career thanks Flash Thompson. Originally made to be Spider-Man’s biggest bully, Flash is known for roughing up Peter and dragging his self-esteem through the mud. The character is set to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming when it drops next month, leaving fans to wonder how Peter will handle his bully following his Avengers stint.
However, it doesn’t look like Peter will have to put up a big fuss. In a recent interview, Tom Holland admits that Flash isn’t quite a bully in the standalone. No - seriously.


Over on Disney Channel, the network ran a special on the Marvel franchise ahead of its theatrical comeback. A Fans Guide to Spider-Man: Homecoming was shared with fans, and it was there that Holland dished a surprising fact about Flash.
“One of the main differences from the previous movies is that we don’t really have a bully. His main rival is Flash. They have this really funny back-and-forth.”
When fans watch Spider-Man: Homecoming, they can expect less locker slams and more friendly jabs between the students. The toned-down take on Flash will be different than what’s been brought into Sony’s previous Spider-Man franchises; Still, it does look like Flash and Peter will be at odds throughout the movie. Footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming has suggested Flash has a bit of a temper, but it is nowhere near as volatile as it is in the comics.
In the past, fans wondered whether Flash would be a full-on antagonist in the new Spider-Man film. During a chat with Short List magazine, Holland described the traditional bully as someone who was more smug than intimidating. “When they cast Flash Thompson they knew they didn’t need a 6ft 5in jock to beat Peter Parker up. They needed a rich, smug kid commenting on how bad his trainers were,” the star explained.
Played by Tony Revolori, Flash Thompson will have a chance to differentiate his big-screen iteration from his comic book counterpart when Spider-Man: Homecoming debuts. The actor, who considers himself a comic book nerd, says he’s grown close to the character - even if he is a bit of a prick.
“I feel like I’m actually becoming more and more like my character,” he said during the special. “I’m always like the guy you’re like ‘Flash, right?’ and now in real life you’re like ‘Tony, right?’”


Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine -- distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.

New SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Images Revealed; Angourie Rice's Role Finally Revealed

A trio of spectacular new Spider-Man: Homecoming images have found their way online, while a junior novel for the reboot finally reveals which comic book character Angourie Rice will be playing...





Thanks to a user on Tumblr, we have a new batch of images from the Spider-Man: Homecoming Junior novel. They aren't massively revealing, but do provide us with a new look at Peter Parker, Ned Leeds, and the wall-crawler in his homemade costume (which bears a striking resemblance to the one worn by Ben Reilly, a.k.a. the Scarlet Spider). However, they also reveal some other interesting details.

For starters, Angourie Rice is reportedly playing Betty Brant. In the comic books, she's one of Peter's first loves and he meets her while she's working as J. Jonah Jameson's secretary at The Daily Bugle.

They don't provide many other details but mention that Flash Thompson is "not really a bully." Who knows what that means, but considering the fact Tony Revolori isn't remotely intimidating, it makes sense that Peter won't be bothered by him in any way. What do you guys think of these new Spider-Man: Homecoming images and details? Share your thoughts in the comments section down below.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Just Stepped Up Its Billboard Game


We’re under one month from the premiere of Peter Parker’s firsts solo flick set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Take that timeframe, add in a little Spidey, and the result is Sony hopping into marketing overdrive.
In partnership with Marvel Studios, Sony has released a handful of trailers, some viral marketing featuring NBA legends Magic Johnson and Tim Duncan, and a poster that took the internet by storm for all the wrong reasons.

Now, thanks to an eagle-eyed Spider-Man fan, we see one of the first billboards the studio is using to promote Spider-Man: Homecoming and it’s all sorts of badass.
Posted on the Marvel Studios subreddit by /u/ItsMinjo, the billboard is printed with a light blue color in the middle which, when combined with the sunny sky, appears to break the billboard in half. Have no worries though, passersby. The movie’s titular character is seen smack dab in the middle “holding” the two sides of the billboard together with his trademark webbing.
The billboard takes a page from a scene straight out of the movie, when Spider-Man (Tom Holland) is holding together the two halves of a ferry that Vulture (Michael Keaton) and his cronies destroyed.
With some of the coolest movie marketing we’ve seen — at least since the psychedelic signage we saw with Doctor Strange — it’s sure to drive more people to theatre. It’s not like the movie needs it anyway, it’s

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Will Be The First Film In A New Spidey Trilogy According To Star Tom Holland

We knew there would be at least one more solo movie after Spider-Man: Homecoming, but Tom Holland (Peter Parker) has now seemingly confirmed plans for a new trilogy during a recent interview...





Several people involved with bringing Spider-Man: Homecoming to the screen have already indicated that we'd be getting one more solo Spidey adventure at some point, but it sounds like Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures actually have plans in place for a trilogy.

During an interview with French site Allocine, Peter Parker actor Tom Holland appeared to let slip that there is indeed a third installment on the radar:
“There is still plenty of room to see Peter grow up Parker and especially Spider-Man in the next two movies, and at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the story is definitely not complete, I’m really looking forward to exploring how it will grow, [and to] see what will happen after puberty. Yes, [they’re] going to be exciting movies.”
Just to be certain, the site asked Holland to clarify his words, to which he responded: “Yes, there will be Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming 3. Now, you know, sorry, Marvel, oops!"

Though this has obviously yet to be made official, Holland's comments do seem like pretty solid confirmation.

Not a huge surprise, perhaps, but there was always the possibility that the deal between Marvel and Sony was only going to allow for two solo movies, so it's nice to know for sure that this won't be the case.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Photos Offer New Looks At Marisa Tomei As Aunt May & At Peter Parker's Crew

A whole new batch of stills from Spider-Man: Homecoming have swung online featuring brand new looks at members of Peter Parker's friend circle and at Marisa Tomei's smokin' hot Aunt May!





With the movie due out in less than a month, Sony Pictures has launched a new Spider-Man: Homecoming app, which comes equipped with a handful of cool features, including one that allows fans to get a sneak peek at the contents of Peter Parker's cell phone.

There's nothing particularly spoiler-y as the content primarily focuses on Peter's school life and his relationship with his closet friends, which as you can see below includes classic Spidey supporting characters played by Zendaya (The Greatest Showman), Jacob Batalon (North Woods), Laura Harrier (The Last Five Years), Tony Revolori (Dope), and Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys).

While we know Batalon, Harrier, and Revolori are playing Ned Leeds, Liz Allen, and Flash Thompson, respectively, Zendaya's "Michelle" remains a mysterious wildcard as does Rice's character, who despite her very Gwen Stacy-like outfit, has been heavily rumored to be playing a young Betty Brant.

Check out the cell phone photos as well as a few more recent stills, including a new shot of Marisa Tomei (Captain America: Civil War)as Aunt May, below:

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ May Have Multiple Credits Scenes




It’s a foregone conclusion that a Marvel Studios movie is going to have some kind of scene that happens during or after the credits. Sometimes it’s even both, as in the case of Guardians of the Galaxy, and this summer’s sequel to the cosmic Marvel movie even upped the ante by having a record five scenes scattered throughout the credits. Now it appears Marvel’s summer collaboration with Sony Pictures will follow suit.
At Sydney’s Supanova Comic-Con, director Jon Watts appeared via Skype and said there would be at least one Spider-Man: Homecoming credits scene “worth sticking around for,” but it seems like there may be more than one for audiences to see. Find out more below.
News of the Spider-Man Homecoming credits scene comes from a Twitter user (via ComicBook.com) at Supanova:
Jon Watts confirms that Homecoming has after credit scenes that are definately "worth sticking around for" (Obviously). #Supanova.
— Tyler James (@Tyler_Cull3n) June 18, 2017
Note that the post in question says “credit scenes, ” but unfortunately we don’t have an exact quote from Jon Watts or video of his appearance to confirm whether or not he teased multiple scenes. That’s why we’re being cautious about teasing the possibility of multiple Spider-Man: Homecoming credits scenes but not ruling it out entirely.
Considering the recent comment from producer Amy Pascal teased the possibility of having Tom Holland appear as Spider-Man in the upcoming spin-offs that will feature Tom Hardy as Venom or the female comic duo Black Cat and Silver Sable, there’s a chance that one of the credits scenes could tease the expansion of the Spider-Man universe. Another could tease the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or maybe just what’s in store for Spider-Man: Homecoming 2.
There are plenty of possibilities for credits scenes, so having multiple wouldn’t be a surprise. Perhaps the best approach might be what Doctor Strange did by having the first mid-credits scene tease the next installment of the MCU while the end credits scene sets up a sequel. Then again, since this is technically a Sony Pictures movie that is being done in collaboration with Marvel Studios, they may not be so keen on promoting a film that they’re not involved with. So even if there are multiple credits scenes, they may all be Spider-Man centric, and some of them could easily just be fun extra gags like most of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 credits scenes.
Either way, just be sure to sit in your seats until the end of the credits. Even if there aren’t multiple scenes, it’s important to acknowledge the thousands of people who make this big screen escapes possible.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING May Have Multiple Post-Credits Scenes; New TV Spots And Posters Released


Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts has confirmed that his movie will feature more than one post-credits scene. Plus, three characters posters and a batch of new TV spots are now online....





Will Spider-Man: Homecoming take a page out of Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2's post-credits scene playbook? While Spidey's new solo adventure may not feature five after-credits stingers, director Jon Watts has confirmed that it will include more than one, and that they'll be "worth sticking around for."

While we speculate as to how these scenes may or may not tie into the greater MCU, some new promotional material for the film has also been released.

A recent banner spotlighting Spidey, Vulture and Iron Man has been split into three individual character posters, and we also have some new TV spots. At this stage you may have seen more than enough from the movie, but just in case, there is some pretty cool new footage here.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Director Discusses Folding Hero Into The MCU



Despite being the focus of two different series of films, there’s a lot of pressure riding on the upcoming Spider-Man reboot.
The character has existed within his own bubble for over a decade, with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield portraying the Wallcrawler in their own franchises. But now things are different. Now, Spider-Man exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
When Tom Holland’s stars in a major feature film in Spider-Man: Homecoming, he’ll be mentored by none other than Robert Downey Jr. in his portrayal of Tony Stark, a year after the character debuted in Captain America: Civil War.


But the responsibility of helming Spider-Man’s latest feature film is even more daunting now that he’s being introduced into the well-established Marvel Studios universe. And those duties fall on director Jon Watts. And yet he feels like it’s where the Webslinger belongs.
“That's where he was always meant to be, he was introduced to give a kid's perspective on this crazy world of superheroes, and up until now Spider-Man has been alone,” Watts said to the Hollywood Reporter during the CineEurope event.

Spider-Man has typically embodied the Marvel notion of “the world outside your window,” especially given that he’s the kid next door who happened to inherit super powers. Now we get to see him interact with established Marvel characters like Iron Man and Captain America—though it’s taken years for these events to actually transpire, it almost seems like it was always written in the stars.

How Sony Learned to Cede Control to Marvel on 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'

Illustration by Matt Collins










Tom Rothman is betting the film will reinvigorate his studio's biggest asset — thanks in large part to a deal with Marvel by his predecessor.


In October 2014, Sony Pictures Entertainment's then co-chairman Amy Pascal was mulling a pitch from Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter: bring on Marvel Studios as a producer for a new series of Spider-Man films — the studio's crown jewel and, at nearly $4 billion, the top-grossing comic book film franchise — that would be full-fledged members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The previous summer's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the second in the Andrew Garfield films, had grossed $709 million worldwide, down from the first installment's $758 million despite the sequel's higher budget at $265 million. And perhaps most importantly, after more than a decade in the web-slinging business, Sony execs were creatively spent, struggling to find a way to retackle the 900 characters in the Spider-Man comic series covered by the deal it made with Marvel in 1999.
Meanwhile, the 15 films in the MCU, beginning with 2008's Iron Man, have racked up $11.7 billion at the box office. Perlmutter was offering the services of a production company with a red-hot track record to reinvigorate a character that was getting stale — without asking Sony to give up any profits on the film. By reuniting the web-slinging superhero with the rest of the Marvel universe, the company could begin using Spider-Man, its No. 1 character, in non-Sony movies, plus boost merchandise sales. Still, Pascal was skeptical about losing full control of her studio's most important asset.
How the armies of lawyers for the two corporate behemoths, Disney-owned Marvel and Sony, ever reached an agreement in February 2015 might seem complicated. But Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says it actually was quite simple. "It really came down to me telling Amy in her office that I think the best thing for this character is: Sony has the rights, that's not changing," Feige recalls. "Have Sony pay for the movie, distribute the movie, market the movie. Just let us make the movie and incorporate him into our universe."

Karwai Tang/WireImage/Getty Images
Feige and Pascal attended the London premiere of Homecoming in June.


As it would happen, Pascal gave a thumbs-up, just as she was ousted in the aftermath of the November 2014 Sony hack. But as part of her exit package, she became a key player in the franchise, transitioning to producing.
Tom Rothman, her studio successor, is now betting on Spider-Man: Homecoming to launch a fresh slate of Spider-Man-themed movies. Hopes are high for hit-starved Sony. That's in part because both Pascal and Feige pushed back on Perlmutter's original budget of $275 million, which would have eclipsed the costs on all four previous Spider-Man films, including the $258 million for Sam Raimi's third outing in 2007. Perhaps more important, Sony wants Homecoming to be embraced by fans, as was the case with Raimi's trilogy. (So far Homecoming is testing very well, scoring in the low 90s. It is tracking to open as high as $100 million).
At $175 million, Homecoming (July 7) marks a smaller gamble than the studio's previous incarnations. Directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car) and starring Tom Holland, 21, Homecoming also follows the blueprint established by Feige: Keep costs down on the first two outings and spend bigger on a third. Homecoming's budget is similar to other MCU stand-alone films like the first two Iron Man and Captain America movies.


When Feige and Pascal began developing the movie, the description given to would-be directors was "a movie as if John Hughes had directed it." According to those who have seen it, Watts has delivered on that mandate. Homecoming is described as one of Marvel's youngest-skewing movies and geared to teens. Even the on-set bonding of the young cast seemed straight out of a Hughes movie: During production in Atlanta, Watts sent the actors out for a picnic in a park and to visit an aquarium.

"Zendaya came up with a really interesting game that brought everyone closer together immediately, where you sit in a circle and you honestly have to tell everyone your first impression of meeting them," recalls Holland.

Watts (left) was given a mandate to make a Spider-Man movie “as if John Hughes had directed it.”


As for the expansion plans, Tom Hardy is starring in Venom, dated for Oct. 5, 2018, which will also feature the villain Carnage. A source says Holland is only contractually obligated to Spider-Man 2 and 3, but the intention is to bring him into the spinoffs and possibly other Marvel films (he is currently shooting Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War).
"Marvel is so good at [working around your schedule]," Holland told THR. "They're very respectful of your life, really. They understand that you have to work on other movies, and yeah, they try and fix it up so you can work."
Meanwhile, Homecoming villain Michael Keaton has a deal to play the Vulture for just one movie.
Another spinoff, Silver & Black, doesn't have a release date but is eyeing a fall shoot and features characters Silver Sable and Black Cat. Other projects will focus on Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. The idea, says a studio source, is to build out a world gradually rather than launch one immediately, as they had been trying with Spider-Man villain ensemble Sinister Six, which has been shelved.

Sony will get a to-be-determined Marvel character for Spider-Man 2 like it received for Homecoming with the box-office monster Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr. But sources say it won't be Iron Man next time around. Whatever happens in Spider-Man's future, there is palpable excitement on the Sony lot after a string of flops, and at Marvel, which has, for now, some control over its friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
"Suddenly this goes from being a third reincarnation and a sixth movie to a first," says Feige. "It's the first time Spider-Man gets to interact with the world in which he belongs."

Product Placement Rules These Cool New SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMINGS Stills

As a result of their partnership with Audi, Marvel has released two new Spider-Man: Homecoming stills highlighting the wall-crawler's homemade costume and Flash Thompson's fancy ride...





Yesterday, we got a very cool video showing Peter Parker taking his driving test and that's now been followed with two brand new stills featuring scenes from Spider-Man: Homecoming. As you can see, they come from a point in the movie which sees the wall-crawler back in his homemade suit and, for reasons unknown, he's clearly found a reason to confront Flash Thompson and his shocked date.



This iteration of Flash will clearly be a rich kid rather than a football star, something which might make more sense these days given Peter's humble background. There are, after all, many ways to be a bully so perhaps this version of Flash won't be as cliched as early versions of his comic book counterpart!

Starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., and almost countless others, Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming is directed by Jon Watts and will be released on July 7th, this year.
