In the latest TV spot for Spider-Man: Homecoming, everyone’s favorite webslinger runs into popular recording artist DJ Khaled while on a run for snacks at a local New York City bodega during the NBA Finals. Fresh off reports that the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe feature is testing well with early audiences and reminds Robert Downey Jr. of his own Marvel Studios premiere turn in Iron Man from 2008, things are looking up for the second reboot of Marvel’s top character.
Following on the heels of the blockbuster success of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 — which is currently sitting pretty with over $800 million at the global box office — the MCU Phase 3 is primed for another dynamo release with Spider-Man: Homecoming. Directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland in the lead role, the latest feature based on a classic character from the panels of Marvel Comics is sure to turn more than a few heads when it finally hits theaters later next month — and the latest TV spot promises just that.
In the footage featured above, viewers can catch another glimpse of Spidey in action as the titular superhero rushes into a local New York City bodega in order to procure snacks for Tony Stark’s NBA Finals party, only to be greeted by fellow attendee DJ Khaled. Fans of the hip hop icon will no doubt flip for this latest TV spot, which includes Spidey posing for a few candid shots with a pair of his adoring fans.
Leading up to the release of Watts’ debut as an MCU director, everything appears to be coming together in spades behind the scenes of Spider-Man: Homecoming, and with any luck this latest TV spot showcases some of the self-aware humor that will soon be put on display in the film. Following the lackluster response that greeted The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014, Spidey fans the world over are no doubt crossing their fingers for a box office success from Watts and co.
Only time will tell whether or not the latest MCU feature will prove to be a resounding box office success, but with the likes of DJ Khaled lending his talents to a TV spot, perhaps fans have little to worry about in the mean time. On that note, here’s to hoping for the very best from Marvel’s next cinematic effort.
