Marvel’s latest trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” has piqued our interest. After 24 hours to mull it over, we have five questions we want answered.
Marvel’s ramping up the excitement for Spider-Man: Homecoming. They released a second trailer for it earlier this week, and it’s a heck of a lot of fun. Is it just me, or does it feel like an actual teenage version of Peter Parker?
Anyway, there’s a lot to digest in this trailer, so we picked five of our burning questions to pose to you lovely readers.
First though, to refresh yourself, here is the trailer:
1. How much Tony Stark are we actually getting?
Because at this point, between the two trailers, it looks like he’s in it a lot. Sure, he’s become the adopted dad of the Avengers and any other offshoots that may potentially fall under that umbrella. But does he need to have his hands in everything? And if so, why hasn’t he shown up to take the likes of Jessica Jones or Daredevil under his wing?
At the same time, it might be one of those cases where the trailers just show every bit of Stark and he won’t actually have as huge of a role as it looks. Or maybe he just really wants to go after Aunt May and that’s why he’s hanging around Peter so much.
2. What exactly is “Damage Control”?
If you watch the trailer, at 0:46, Tony Stark is on TV with the caption of “Damage Control” beneath him. More than likely this is the startup company he creates to clean up after the Avengers’ messes. The one that ticks off the Vulture and puts him out of business.
Stark’s already kind of tried that in Age of Ultron with the Iron Legion, which didn’t go over so well. He’s taking a better approach to it this time, but it’s still going to tick some people off… and create yet another villain.
3. Why is the Washington Monument exploding?
I mean, it’s more than likely the Vulture pulling some shenanigans (and while Peter’s on a class trip!). But don’t supervillains know that attacking national monuments is a bad idea? Don’t they watch movies in their universe? Don’t they learn from past mistakes of their fellow bad guys?
If I had to wager a guess, I would say this is a point when Vulture is testing out his new equipment. And doing it away from NYC so as to not draw attention to himself.
4. Wait, is Peter trying to control a plane at the end?
I think someone should tell him that spider webs don’t usually work when you’re trying to fly a plane. Still, this looks pretty badass. I want to know what exactly Vulture is creating from these alien scraps that has the ability to take over a plane!
5. Why can’t he control an army of spiders?
We see a lot of cool Stark technology in this trailer. Like, Spidey’s entire suit is nothing but Stark tech. And since Stark’s dad and Hank Pym worked very closely together for many years, why can’t Tony create a similar kind of device to have Peter control spiders? He’s a smart guy.
Plus, the ensuing battle of spiders versus ants between Peter and Scott Lang would be all sorts of ridiculous.
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7th.
