Latest Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer reveals new footage, more humor

Contributed by

Movie lovers tend to fall into two camps when it comes to movie trailers: "Don't show me too much!" and "Show me more new footage because I want to parse everything!"

If you fall into category one, I'm going to suggest that you might not want to watch this new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, because it definitely includes new footage. Whether or not they're "putting all the funny/good stuff in the trailers and not saving anything for the movies" isn't something we'll know until we actually see the movie.

That said, it's a good trailer. In addition to giving you a better idea of just how Peter's dealing with his new job upgrade, there's something about the way he's using his abilities that makes me think there's a "With great power comes great responsibility" lesson in his future somewhere. 

One of the things this trailer avoids is giving away too much on Michael Keaton's Adrian Toomes, aka Vulture. Something tells me Keaton is going to be spending more time out of the suit than in it, which I personally think is a much better use of his talents. He's got an icy but charming smile that makes him feel particularly threatening, no matter how blue-collar "normal" he may seem.

One of the most striking things here is just how likable Tom Holland's Spider-Man is. We've seen a lot of Spider-Man movies, and we've had several Peter Parkers, but I have a feeling Holland may find his way to the top of the list for a whole lot of fans.

So, tell me, are you going to watch the trailer? Or are you avoiding spoilers at this point?

Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into (I had to) theaters July 7th.
