Trailer Time: Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer & International Trailer #1 (2017) *Spidey’s Back!!!*

 

There were so many good things about Civil War, but arguably the best is that Tom Holland cleared out all of the baggage from the SONY years and the Maguire and Garfield failed experiments.  To me, Holland already is the best Spider-Man we’ve ever had, and I went from completely not caring to ever see another Spidey movie pre-Civil War, to counting the days until we get a full movie of Peter Parker in high school, NO ORIGIN STORY, Michael Keaton as the Vulture and more of the great mentor/mentee/your-aunt-is-unreasonably-hot relationship between Peter and Tony Stark.  Marvel dropped not only the first domestic trailer, but the the first international trailer as well, so what better way to TGIF than to take your first look at the second of three Marvel films we’ll get in 2017 (Thor: Ragnarok will come later in November).  Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to swing into theaters on July 7, 2017, and Coming Soon has a plot synopsis below.

Spider-Man Homecoming, Spider-Man, Vulture

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will swing into theaters on July 7, 2017.

Trailer Time: Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 Trailer #2 (2017) *I AM GROOOOOOT!*

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2  has been, by far, the biggest success story of the MCU thus far.  It raised at least six characters from the status of “only known by those of the Chosen Order of Geekhood” to household names.  In 2013, I could shout “I AM GROOT” and be taken into protective psychiatric custody.  Now, people just think I’m childish (which, truth be told, is the reaction I tend to get anyway).  With Awesome Mix-Tape 2 as its background music, the Guardians reassemble in the first full trailer for their second adventures.  Aaaand, it’s awesome.  People are going to go nuts for this, especially Baby Groot, but, the character that’s surprised me the most is Dave Bautista’s Drax: he’s so good.  Watch. Enjoy. Repeat. The Guardians of the Galaxy will return on May 5, 2017.

My Favorite Scene: Captain America – Civil War (2016) *Avenger Airport Throwdown”

When I was a little kid, Marvel had just put out their Secret Wars action figure line, and my mom got me a bunch of them.  I would have epic battles spanning the basement between heroes and villains and heroes and heroes and heroes and the occasional He-Man figure who wandered by much to their regret.  It’s that kind of childlike super hero glee that fills you watching the airport battle in Captain America: Civil War.
