Sony has done it again. This time, in conjunction with Marvel Studios. The web-slinging teen hero, Peter Parker, popularly known as the ‘friendly neighborhood Spiderman’ is back on the big screen. After making his franchise debut in ‘Captain America: Civil War’, he is now ready to star in his first Marvel Cinematic Universe solo movie in form of SpiderMan Homecoming. This article will fill you in on its release date, stars and generally what it’s all about. If you’re a ‘Spidey’ fan, this information may come in handy either before or after its release. Read on to find out what role Zendaya might be taking on the film.
The two production companies haven’t come out with a clear description of the film’s plot. However, bits and pieces have been put together from the cast members’ interviews. The movie will mostly be centered around Peter Parker’s youth. It will basically have the cliche concept of a young Peter Parker trying to juggle his home and social life with his superhero life, but with a different twist and new villains. We should, therefore, look forward to plenty of action scenes, a bit of romance, slight swearing and a bit of humor.
The film is expected to have an awkwardly huge cast, that will mix the talents of young actors and Hollywood heavyweights. Tom Holland takes the lead role of Peter Parker/Spiderman, while Michael Keaton takes on the movie’s villain, Adrian Toomes/the Vulture. Zendaya will take on the role of Michelle, Peter’s love interest. Robert Downey Jr. aka Ironman will also be on board. Other actors include Michael Barbieri, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress Martin Starr, Angourie Rice and many, much more. SpiderMan’s co-producer, Stan Lee, is also set to make a cameo appearance in the film.
Jon Watts is the man tasked with the responsibility of bringing these characters to life. Though he’s not much of a big shot in the movie industry, the film will act as his stepping stone into the limelight. Marvel Studios selected Jon as the director of the film, mainly because of the mark he left on his 2015 film, ‘Cop Car’. The great directing skills needed to be extended to make the fictional film more realistic and relatable. Thumbs up to Marvel for giving a chance to little-known talented individuals to take part in one of the biggest movies of 2017.
