Spider-Man Shows Off His Web-Shooters in New Homecoming Video
Yesterday, we showed you a new video from the Spider-Man: Homecoming set, where Spidey was seen swinging down to stop a bike thief. The video seemed to be shot across the street from the action, and while we could see the brief scene unfold just fine, it wasn't exactly the most optimal view of the action. Today we have new videos that offer a much better look at this scene, showing Tom Holland using his "web-shooters" to subdue this criminal.
Of course, since the webs Spidey flings at this criminal will be added in post-production, we don't really see the web shooters, and we don't know exactly if Spider-Man has anything to say to this criminal before stringing him up. The Twitter user "Atlanta Filming" that posted these videos also revealed that it is actually Tom Holland in the suit, and not his stunt double. We also get a new photo that shows both Tom Holland and his stunt double on the set.
This new Spider-Man made his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War, which has earned over $1.1 billion since debuting in theaters this past May. Tom Holland is first brought into this superhero universe by Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark, who recruits him to be part of Team Iron Man for this epic battle. Robert Downey Jr. has signed on to return in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but we don't know for sure how large or small his role is, or if he has actually started filming his role in Atlanta quite yet.
The cast keeps growing and growing as production continues, with The Nice Guys breakout star Angourie Rice recently joining the cast, sparking rumors that she may be playing either Gwen Stacy or Mary-Jane Watson. The movie also stars Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Michael Keaton as the villain, rumored to be Vulture and Logan Marshall-Green as another rumored villain, The Tinkerer. Tony Revolori is set to play a schoolyard nemesis of Peter Parker, along with Laura Harrier, Michael Barbieri, Martin Starr, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendenborg Jr., J.J. Totah, Donald Glover, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Bokeem Wodbine, Michael Mando and Abraham Attah rounding out the cast.
Rumors have surfaced that Michael Mando is playing the villain Carnage, while Abaraham Attah is rumored to play Miles Morales, but it isn't known when we'll get confirmation on these characters. Jon Watts (Cop Car) is directing Spider-Man: Homecoming from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation). Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing, with Marvel and Sony setting a July 7, 2017 release date. Take a look at these new videos and another photo from the Spider-Man: Homecoming set as filming continues in Atlanta.
