Peter Parker’s Secret Is Busted in This New ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Clip
The MTV Movie & TV Awards have always been kind to our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. In 2003, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man took home awards for Kirsten Dunst and Best Kiss — seriously, who can forget that upside down rainswept smooch? — as well as nominations for Best Actor, Best Villain, and Best Movie. So with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming on its way into theaters this summer, what better place to premiere a brand new clip? Odds are MTV’s voters will have Tom Holland on the stage next year for Best Hero in the upcoming film. Man, I wish all award shows had categories this fun.
Honestly, my big takeaway from this clip is that Peter Parker is kind of lazy. Shooting a web from two feet away to close your door? It’s gonna take, like, 20 minutes for that web fluid to dissolve, and if Aunt May walks into the room, you’re still busted. I guess this version of Spider-Man takes place without the whole “great power, great responsibility” speech. That being said, the clip does highlight the relationship between Parker and Ned (Jacob Batalon), his closest friend and confident. Friendship has always been at the heart of the Marvel franchise; it’s great to see that Spider-Man: Homecoming will be no different.
Here’s the full plot synopsis for Spider-Man: Homecoming:
Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May, under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark. 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 emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
