Earlier this summer, Marvel Studios and Sony embarked on the journey of filming their first co-produced Spider-Man movie in history. After years of fans hoping to see Spider-Man and the Avengers on the same screen together, that dream became a reality in Captain America: Civil War. Now that Peter has experienced a fight against the biggest and most powerful superheroes in the planet, Spider-Man: Homecoming will take him back to Queens as he deals with the everyday life of being a teenager, who also happens to have superpowers.
Throughout production on the movie, set photos have continued to come out giving fans the chance to see the school, Spidey in action, the first look at Shocker, and much more. Some new photos have once again surfaced, this time showing Tom Holland as good ole Peter Parker talking to one of his friends, with an authoritative looking Tyne Daly nearby.
Just Jared Jr. posted new photos from the set giving fans another opportunity to see what Holland and company are up to. Unlike some of the other batches of set photos, these do not offer up any surprises, unless someone is fascinated in knowing what role Daly will be playing. Although it is not clearly revealed, she is definitely an authority figure watching Parker, but whether or not that is good or bad for him is unknown.
There has not yet been any word on who Daly will be playing in Spider-Man: Homecoming, although some have speculated that a gender flip for J. Jonah Jameson was a possibility. While that is nothing but speculation at this point, her shooting a scene with Peter Parker and Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) close by could further point things in that direction. Both Parker and Leeds work for The Daily Bugle in the comics, so if Daly was the Editor-in-Chief of the newspaper where they intern or work, it would make sense why she is keeping a close eye on both.
This could be a complete coincidence at this point, with her appearing as a faculty member at the school being plausible as well. Whatever the case may be, she could have a much bigger role in future installments depending on what character she ends up playing. J.K. Simmons was so loved in the role during Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy that it is hard to imagine anyone else in the role, but this would certainly be a change indicating a different take on the character compared to what we have seen before.
