Two new trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming have arrived and the spots are sure to get fans of the web-slinger seriously anticipating the new film. The two Amazing Spider-Man films and the third entry of Sam Raimi’s original trilogy were not well-received. Even the director said he wasn’t happy with the finished film. The new Spider-Man film, a film integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, really does look awesome.
The film is sure to bring Spider-Man back to the top spot in superhero films. The trailers definitely do a good job of hyping the wall-crawler’s impending return. Interestingly, he gets an assist from Tony Stark who makes a nice cameo. Will the relationship between Stark/Iron Man and Peter Parker/Spider-Man play out over a series of films? Fans can hope so.
Based on how things are being established with Spider-Man and Iron Man, the two are likely going to share screen time again in the future. Avengers: Infinity War is definitely the next time the two will be together in a film, but this is to be expected. Infinity War is going to be Marvel’s mega collective of heroes.
What about the next entries in the Spider-Man movie franchise? The second film is many years away, but it would be nice to see Tony Stark appearing in the films. One of the cooler aspects of the old Marvel Comic books from the 1960’s and 1970’s was Marvel built a solid universe of characters that did intermingle with each other through guest appearances in other hero’s books. Today, crossover appearances are nothing special. In the movies, however, there is still a uniqueness to guest shots and two-hero team-ups. The upcoming Thor movie will feature The Hulk in a major role, which definitely lends the film a box office assist.
The Peter Parker/Tony Stark dynamic should play out in an interesting way. Plus, it could keep Robert Downey Jr. somewhat active in the Marvel Cinematic Universe even if he chooses to bow out of The Avengers and any other lead roles.
And no one really wants to see Robert Downey Jr. go. He truly is awesome in the Marvel movies.
