Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) make up an alibi for Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) in the newest clip from Spider-Man: Homecoming. The film – which will be Tom Holland’s first solo outing as Peter Parker/Spider-Man – picks up shortly after events of Captain America: Civil War, the movie that notably featured the iconic web slinger’s long-awaited introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And as part of Marvel and Sony’s agreement over the character, the film will feature appearances from a couple fan-favorite MCU characters, including Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan and Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark/Iron Man.
But it looks like Spider-Man: Homecoming won’t just be continuing the mentor-protege relationship established between Peter and Tony in Civil War, but will also feature even more flirtatious banter from Tony, directed toward’s Peter’s Aunt May. After just making two brief appearances in Civil War alongside Holland too, Tomei will also be getting her first full-fledged attempt at bringing the beloved Spider-Man character to life on the big screen with Homecoming.
A new clip from Homecoming has officially been released online today as well, giving fans a little bit more from one of the scenes between Peter and Tony that has been featured already in a number of previous TV spots and trailers. This time, however, it’s not just the two characters discussing what’s next for Peter’s superhero career, but also taking the time to craft an elaborate(?) alibi for Peter to show to Aunt May. Check out the new clip for yourself down below:
Picking up with the character right after his participation in the airport battle from Civil War, the solo film will follow Peter Parker as he tries desperately to prove himself worthy of officially becoming an Avenger. Predictably, that causes some friction between he and Tony Stark throughout the film, with the latter urging him to take his time, be a kid, and work gradually towards his goal, rather than diving right into conflicts and battles that he might not be equipped or experienced enough for.
Those conflicts will include confrontations between Spider-Man and some of his more classic villains from the comic books, including Bokeem Woodbine’s Shocker, Michael Chernus’ The Tinkerer, and mainly, Michael Keaton’s villainous Adrian Toomes/The Vulture. That lineup of antagonists is enough proof that Marvel Studios is attempting to bring a version of the Spider-Man character to the big screen that never quite has been before – one who is younger and less experienced than any of his onscreen predecessors. Whether or not that will prove to be the best move, in the long run, will have to wait to be seen, but so far, it’s paying off in spades for both Marvel and Sony.
