Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to be one of the best bets of the upcoming third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s the third incarnation of the iconic arachnid superhero since the turn of the 21st century, as Andrew Garfield’s starring vehicle in the Amazing Spider-Man series fizzled out after two installments. Now, Tom Holland has a chance to parlay his turn as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War into a whole new era for the franchise and a pivotal piece of the next phase of Marvel movies.
The first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming showcases the humor and thrills to expect from Holland's solo movie, as well as Parker’s unique relationship with his new mentor, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). The first international trailer reveals even more about Michael Keaton’s Vulture and the villain’s role in the movie. Now there's a new international TV spot that takes the most striking elements of each previous trailer and combines them into a neat 30-second package.
The TV spot, which popped up on the YouTube page for Sony Pictures Spain, summarizes the spectacle of what should be some of Homecoming's most thrilling sequences. There’s another look at Spider-Man and Vulture’s battle amid an attack on a ship, as well as the hero’s leap off the Washington Monument. The TV spot concludes with the same familiar shot of Spidey and Iron Man zipping around through the air, which should get any Marvel fan excited.
The spot also features Peter Parker’s best friend Ned Leeds, who appears to play a different role in Homecoming than he did in the comics. It shows the same amusing limo scene between Parker and Stark that highlights the movie’s sense of humor, but doesn’t reveal anything new about what kind of role that Stark/Iron Man will play.
If you’re looking for a succinct look at what to expect in Spider-Man: Homecoming, this first international TV spot is a good place to start. The apparent bigger focus on Parker as an awkward high school kid sets Homecoming apart from previous Spider-Man installments, while the action scenes and visuals appear to rival any in the franchise in terms of scale.
While the TV spot gives an intriguing glimpse into the world that Spider-Man: Homecoming presents and how it differs from other Spider-Man movies, it doesn’t offer much new material. Viewers can only look at that cracked ship and the Washington Monument so much before desiring something fresh. But as far as a straight-to-the-point preview of what’s to come in the newest Spider-Man reboot, the first international TV spot for Spider-Man: Homecoming is a worthy viewing.
