The weekend that Marvel fans have been waiting for is fast approaching – ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ is nearly upon us! Early reviews have been fairly positive, and our own review of the movie praises it as “the Spider-Man movie we’ve been waiting for.” You’ll be able to see it yourself in theaters starting in just a few short days, but for those of you who just can’t wait, we’ve got an extended clip from early in the film for you to enjoy now!
WARNING: The following contains mild spoilers for non-plot-specific info from ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming.’ If you wish to avoid seeing or reading this information, then the time to stop reading is now!
The clip isn’t the exact opening of the film – that belongs to a pre-credit sequence establishing a bit of background story for Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) and his crew, with part of the scene taking place immediately following the “Battle of New York” as shown in the original ‘The Avengers’ films. The scene below, however, follows the “Marvel Studios” movie-opening graphic sequence we’ve all come to know and love, and provides a “video blog” of sorts, made by Peter Parker himself, as it chronicles his involvement in the ‘Captain America: Civil War’ hero-fight scene. Check it out:
Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.
‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ opens in US theaters on July 7, 2017.
