Although SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING recently began production, Marvel surprised San Diego Comic Con fans and press with footage from SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING along with a few more revelations in Hall H including appearances by Spider-Man himself Tom Holland and his co-stars.
1. Storyline Revealed
Director Jon Watts revealed during the Hall H panel that the focus of the new Spider-Man will be more of a teenage drama as Peter Parker not only comes into his super powers, but his teenage years full of angst and puberty. Panel host Chris Hardwick joked SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING will get the John Hughes treatment. In the footage shown at San Diego’s Comic Con, a scene reveals Peter Parker as a lovelorn teenager pining for fellow school mate played by Laura Harrier.
2. Parker’s Squad
Unlike previous Spider-Man movies, Peter Parker is not a loner. He’s still not popular in high school, but this time he’s got comedy relief in his school mate played by Jacob Battalion and Zendaya's character. Read more about her character in #5.
3. Villain Revealed
After the high school scene, we see the web-slinger in all his glory with laser-beamed gadgets courtesy of Tony Stark we presume. For the finale, concept art of Vulture ends the exclusive footage. Michael Keaton is rumored to be playing the villain of SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING, and now it seems we have the antagonist.
4. Title Treatment Revealed
Marvel revealed the new title treatment for the new movie which echoes the lightheartedness of the film described as a high school drama.
5. Zendaya’s Role
The former Disney Channel star will be playing a tomboyish school mate to Peter Parker, who speaks her mind and seems to have a chip on her shoulder.
