‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ first trailer flies high for Tom Holland

Tom Holland’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” got its first full trailer, and it looks like this could easily be the best of the three reboots. Holland pretty much stole every scene he was in with “Captain America: Civil War,” and you can tell he’ll be able to carry this freshened up franchise very well.

You can see the full trailer just below, and it shows Peter Parker dealing with the usual growing pains with being a high school student with hormones charging through your body and not knowing what to do with them. At least with Parker, he gets to work out his anxiety and hormonal charges fighting off a world filled with supervillains.

The trailer makes you actually forget that there were two other incarnations of “Spider-Man,” which is a great thing. That’s not to say that Andrew Garfield’s incarnation was bad, it just felt like Marvel didn’t pay enough attention to it. They were so busy creating the Marvel Cinematic Universe and figuring out how to fit Thor, Captain America and Iron Man into, poor Spider-Man was left behind. With a talent such as Garfield’s it’s a sad waste of it as he really did the best with what he was given.

Sony has one huge thing going for this outing as fans have already taken to Holland as their latest Spider-Man, so that’s half the battle one already. This trailer easily seals the deal and director Jon Watts is taking his time dealing with Peter Parker’s teenage years. This was one of the glaring flaws in Sam Raimi’s version with Tobey Maguire. We get to feel a whole new focus on Parker’s life that feels fresh and not just another franchise retread.

The teaser trailer that hit on Wednesday gave a nostalgic John Hugh’s high school year feel, and you can see that developed even more with the trailer. When Parker’s friend catches him in the Spider-Man outfit, Holland is actually adorable trying to deny it while stripping off his outfit.

Marvel and Sony may be feeling that they’re taking a big risk with another reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, but from what we’re seeing, they’re doing it right and actually have a great artistic vision this time around.
