Sony is in the midst of creating their iteration of Spider-Man, but this one will be a little different. Not only will it have a younger version of Peter Parker, with a focus on his high school years, but he will also be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Audiences were able to meet Tom Holland’s version of the iconic character earlier this year in Captain America: Civil War, but Spider-Man: Homecoming will put him in the spotlight.
Production on the first solo film is currently underway in Atlanta, and that has allowed for plenty of set photos and videos to make their way online. So far fans have been able to see Peter at school, hanging out with Ned Leeds, stopping a low level bike stealing criminal, and possibly stopping a car wreck from happening. Now, the director is teasing some aerial action scenes.
Jon Watts recently posted a short video from the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming that points to an unusual location for the set. In the new video, the sign for crew members to follow to set is pointed towards the sky, revealing a helicopter flying overtop. While the video does not reveal much else in terms of who is involved with this scene or what exactly the helicopter is being used, take a look at the video:
Even though there is no sign of Spider-Man nearby, the helicopter is likely set to be used for a brand new action sequence. For this scene, Spider-Man could very well be swinging from the helicopter or it could just be used for Watts to shoot a scene from above. The latter is not likely as there are easier ways to get high shots without requiring the use of helicopter. Instead, this is hopefully another action sequence of Spider-Man swinging through the air to battle a villain.
Speaking of the villain, Michael Keaton has been linked to be playing Vulture, who is confirmed to be in the film. If Spider-Man was not included in this scene, it could instead be used for Vulture’s flying abilities. The helicopter could very well be used to utilize the abilities of both characters. Spider-Man’s action scenes in Civil War were executed incredibly well, but now he will be the focus of all of these types of scenes in Homecoming. Hopefully Watts, Sony, and Marvel have figured out new ways to incorporate the unique fighting style that both characters provide for the upcoming movie.
