In a new clip from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Aunt May (Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei) admits to not being a Tony Stark fan. Following the events in Captain America: Civil War, Homecoming will explore the high school high life of young Peter Parker, with Tom Holland reprising his role from Civil War. Slated to featured a more realistic version of high school life, the Jon Watts-directed Homecoming is also the first Spider-Man solo movie based in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Homecoming cast includes Robert Downey Jr. back as Tony Stark/Iron Man, with Michael Keaton stepping in to play Adrian Toomes aka. The Vulture for (at least) one movie. Tony serves as something of a mentor/father-figure to Peter in the film, unbeknownst to his aunt. With May also seemingly unaware that Peter is Spider-Man, her disapproval of Tony Stark is an issue for the web-slinger, for more than one reason.
In the Homecoming clip above, May expresses her disapproval of Parker's secret mentor, admitting that she doesn't particularly care for the devil-may-care attitude of the Avengers' current leader. She's not the only disapproving parental figure in Peter's life either, seeing as the Homecoming trailers have revealed that Peter gets a scolding from Tony too, for his reckless superhero behavior.
Based on everything that has been released thus far, Spider-Man: Homecoming should be a more than fitting cinematic outing for the much-beloved Marvel Comics character - especially after the less-than-appreciated outing produced on the behalf of Sony in the form of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Tomei definitely adds a certain flair to the general proceedings that is a decided divergence from what has come before, and paves the way for a wholly new interpretation of the classic superhero for moviegoers around the world.
With the whole world watching and waiting for the theatrical release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, only time will tell whether or not the much-anticipated followup to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will live up to all of the expectations set before it. Watts has thus proven himself to be a capable independent genre filmmaker - see his films Clown and Cop Car for more on that - but with his first foray into the MCU things are going to change in a big way for the novice filmmaker very soon.
