The official Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer is expected to arrive online any day now, before it premieres in theaters attached to select prints of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in theaters later this month. Those who are in attendance at the 2016 CCXP Comic-Con Convention in Brazil have now an early look at fresh footage from the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, ahead of the official trailer’s debut.
Marvel Digital Media Vice President and Executive Editor Ryan Pengos is among those at the 2016 CCXP event and he posted a description of the (short) preview for Homecoming that was shown during the event. Among other things, the footage confirms one detail that has been rumored for a while: Tom Holland’s web-slinger will indeed have his own web wings in his first solo adventure in the MCU.
Here is the description of the Homecoming footage shown at CCXP, courtesy of Pengos:
The Spider-Man Homecoming footage was short but AWESOME. Starts from Spidey’s POV, talking with Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). There’s a case from Tony Stark with an “upgrade” for Spidey. Then we see Spidey leap off a building, open his arms, web wings! There were a few more flashes of shots, but I can’t remember. That classic underarm webbing look was just so rad.
Peter Parker’s Spider-Man has been armed with “web wings” in comic books past, allowing him to sail through the air (much like a base jumper does) when he’s not swinging from building to building. As mentioned, it has been rumored in the past that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) would be providing Peter with this particular tech upgrade in Homecoming – and odds are it’s not the only “upgrade” that Tony provides the web-slinger with during his first post-Captain America: Civil War adventure.
Peter could use the extra help too, seeing as his main opponent in Homecoming is going to be the teched-out baddie The Vulture (Michael Keaton); not to mention, the threats poised by other supporting villains in this movie, who are also powered by dangerous tech of their own. It seems unlikely that the Homecoming trailer attached to Rogue One will show off too much of either Spidey and/or his enemies’ tech in the film, based on the expectation that it’s just a teaser. Still, the trailer should at least include the web wings footage that was shown at CCXP.
The Homecoming footage shown at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 focused more on Peter’s day-to-day experiences in high school, rather than his superhero activities on the side. It will be interesting to see how the first Homecoming trailer goes about splitting its focus between the movie’s MCU superhero elements and its John Hughes-style high school antics, if only because it could set a precedent for the rest of the marketing campaign for Spidey’s next big screen outing.
