‘Spider-Man’ Swings into Action in New ‘Homecoming’ Set Video

     July 14, 2016


Watching Tom Holland‘s debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War was a moment of great joy and relief. No disrespect to Toby Maguire or Andrew Garfield, both of whom did a fine job as Peter Parker, but watching Holland stumble around his Queens apartment and spout off zingers as he zipped around that airport hangar, you couldn’t help but think — Yes, that’s it! That’s exactly it. They finally got Spidey exactly right.

Now, he’s getting his own movie, and Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently underway in Atlanta, Georgia where a local photographer snapped a couple snippets of behind-the-scenes footage. And, as in Civil War, it’s like Holland leapt straight out of the pages of your favorite Spidey comic. I love the details, the way he snaps his legs into a little point when the director calls action, that friendly wave after he sends the baddie into the air; classic Spider-Man in motion. Check it out in the videos below.

As always, Marvel is absolutely casting the hell out of this movie. In addition to returning players, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr., Homecoming has linedup an impressive trio of villains played by Fargo Season 2 standout Bokeem WoodbineMichael Keaton and The Invitation star Logan Marshall-Green. They’ve also filled out the ensemble with a diverse, funny and talented cast including Donald GloverHannibal Buress, Beasts of No Nation star Abraham Attah, Silicon Valley‘s Martin Starr, The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s Tony Revolori, Zendaya, Michael Barbieri, and Angourie Rice, the young actress who stole pretty much all the scenes in The Nice Guys (and stole them from a duo as rampantly charming as Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, no less).

Directed by Jon Watts from a screenplay by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled to hit theaters on July 7, 2017, which is just starting to seem like an insufferable wait at this point.
