So, I am investigating this new SpiderMan Homecoming, and I have to say this pretty much puts a whole new spin on things, literally… and I kinda like it. Now, I do get discouraged when they keep changing the actor of my beloved superheroes. I totally went into this not expecting much, and yes I wasn’t expecting to be so impressed…. and now I can say I am pleasantly surprised!
This movie is based on the Marvel comic book character SpiderMan so we can be assured they kept it classic even with the update. It’s is co-produced by Columbia Pictures along with Marvel Studios, of course, directed by Jon Watts, and distributed by Sony Pictures and if the sixteenth film brought to us from Marvel Cinematic Universe. The official release date is July 7th, and it’s sure to be a huge success from what I’ve seen.
We have the story before, about how Peter Parker ultimately becomes SpiderMan, however… We had not heard it told like this! This is a new age SpiderMan… Some of you out there may hate even the thought of updating this classic, and I have to say, I was right along there with you. It took lots of research for me to come to terms with it and admit that… this version ain’t half bad at all and… by updated version I mean… It takes our love for technology these days and incorporates it into the story by using it to help this Spider-Man. We must admit… The technology they use in this is not only fascinating, but it’s so very useful too!
Now, after helping the Avengers, a fifteen-year-old Peter Parker (played by Tom Holland)returns home to live with his Aunt May and continues to be mentored by Tony Starks (AKA Iron Man) for this who didn’t catch that already. We find Parker at a place in his life where he is finally becoming comfortable with his new identity as SpiderMan while struggling to jump back in his day to day routine. As, we all know this is an issue that almost all of our superhero friends deal with, and we are aware it isn’t always and easy transition. Peter isn’t the most confident of hero’s and has always struggled with the need to prove himself.. in fact he usually finds his strengths while facing a villain, and in this movie, he faces the Evil Vulture as he threatens Parker and everything he holds dear.
Michael Keaton, my favorite Batman whom also played Birdman.. is in the villain role, playing as Vulture. He’s got some nasty weapons made from alien technology that forces Peter into action.
Now, let’s talk some more abut this new technology… Let’s get into the details, shall we? Okay, this time around Spidey has the ultimate high-tech suit, engineered by Tony Stark himself so… I mean the ultimate! Here’s what it can do friends!!
With a built-in computer system, it now encases a parachute and Peter has over 576 different web shooting combinations. Best of all, the spider on his chest has drone capabilities. That’s right… I said… DRONE CAPABILITIES!! Sweet huh!?
Quite literally the title, Homecoming is very well fitted. This story is all about Peter returning home after his epic battle with Captain America but, this story certainly tells a tale of overcoming self-doubt. He’s still a newbie in the superhero scene and still has a lot to learn. Remember, he’s only 15 in this so… He’s fighting crime while making sure he gets an A on his history exam all while finding a way to even speak to his crush. Oh, the life of a teenager can be rough enough, but now he must find a way to save the world on top if it. It’s certainly not an easy spot to be in.
Okay, now we’ve gotta see our latest Spidey in action. Does he have what it takes? Here’s the first official trailer… You be the judge!
Well, you guys?? Are you going to be rushing into the theaters or will you have that ticket pre-ordered ahead of time? Does this make you excited about the Spider-Man legacy all over again? Like I said before… I went into this a total skeptic and now… well, I’ve gotta see it and as soon as I can!
Thanks so much for stopping by Ky’s Korner today… Catch you next time Friends!!
