The new ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ trailer just tells you the entire plot

Spider-Man’s had a pretty wibbly cinema history, and time isn’t helping it. “Spider-Man 3” is held in better regard now, while Andrew Garfield’s “Amazing Spider-Man” franchise is pretty well disregarded now (despite having a lot of strong elements!). Still, Tom Holland’s brief turn as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War” was pretty significant, the first showing of the character in the shared agreement between Marvel and Sony.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” is one of my most anticipated movies this year, because I really just want a good Spider-Man movie again. Marvel’s got all the tools, except of course for the ability to keep silent. Why go see the movie when you can just watch the trailer? Thanks to the trailer, we can now predict that the movie will be hung on Parker getting a bunch of new toys, using them recklessly and then having to prove himself without all the gadgets.

This isn’t necessarily anything new. Movies have had problems with trailers spoiling plot points for years, and it all comes back to a study that claims spoilers actually help you enjoy a movie more. This has been a long-running theory, and movie trailers use this to sell tickets and put butts in seats. Unfortunately, this means you’ve probably already seen the basic set-up for “Spider-Man: Homecoming”‘s third act.

Ah well. The movie still looks damn good, and I’m always down for a new Michael Keaton performance. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is out July 7.

  1. Can’t wait! I’m avoiding the trailers as I hate spoilers.

    Toby Maguire was pretty good, but didn’t have the irreverant humour and sarcasm of Spiderman from the comics.

    Andrew Garfield made some amends in that regard (and he’s a better actor than Toby).

    But Tom Holland has the real character of Spiderman and his humour down perfectly. At last!
