Some brand new Spider-Man: Homecoming footage is set to be released next weekend. Picking up several months after the events of Captain America: Civil War – which introduced Holland’s Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe – the new film is set to follow Peter as he continues to learn what it means to be a hero. Fortunately for fans of the franchise as well, that features the inclusion of Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark in the film, who’s both simultaneously acting as a mentor to Peter and also trying to keep him and his constant requests to join the Avengers at bay.
Now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been in theaters for several weeks, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are starting to crank out more and more early promotions for Homecoming, leading up to its release at the beginning of July. Things began to ramp up last week with the release of the final Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, which featured even more never-before-seen footage from the film. While the recent set of domestic and international trailers may have been the last batch released for Homecoming, fans can still expect to see some more from the film before it hits theaters.
In a new promo clip on Disney Channel, both Holland and his co-star Zendaya are featured promoting a new “Fan’s Guide to Spider-Man: Homecoming” TV event, airing next Saturday at 7:30 pm. Check out the promo for yourself above.
In addition to some more footage expected to be shown during the TV special, the promo for it also appears to suggest some new behind-the-scenes sneak peeks from Homecoming. However, while the release of more footage is, no doubt, exciting for many fans out there, it should also be noted that Marvel and Sony have already received some flack for showing what some believe to be too many spoiler-y moments from the film itself in the previously released trailers.
Sony ran into similar complaints about their marketing campaigns for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man films, which had so many TV spots and trailers released for them, that many fans were either exhausted by the film before it even hit theaters, or thought too much of it had already been ruined. So while there’s been a healthy amount of footage released from Homecoming up until this point, it will be interesting to see how Marvel and Sony continue to ramp up marketing for it in the coming weeks, without (hopefully) spoiling too much of it, and that no doubt applies to this upcoming Disney Channel special event.
