Spider-Man: Homecoming debuts Vulture artwork at Comic-Con

Spider-Man: Homecoming - artwork

NEW artwork from Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming has been debuted at San Diego Comic-Con.

The image shows Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland) in aerial combat with new villain, Vulture.

The Comic-Con presentation was attended by Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori and director Jon Watts and included early footage from the film even though filming has only just begun.

Set to Joan Jett’s Bad Reputation, the footage showed the daily life of Peter Parker as he attempts to secretly make web fluid in high school science class, as well as biting his tongue as girls in gym class share crushes on the Avengers – we learn, somewhat comically, that no one likes Spider-Man.

There was also a scene showing Parker having to get out of class early in order to save the day – a regular feature of the comic books.

Watts himself described Homecoming as “a straight-up high-school movie” that will offer ‘a ground-level view’ of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

And, unlike previous other Spider-Man incarnations featuring Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, this one will maintain a focus on just how young the character is.

Hence, he will be portrayed as a high-school loser who finds an outlet for his frustration and anxiety in fighting crime in disguise.

Another big difference is the patronage of a certain Tony Stark, aka Robert Downey Jr., who will follow up on the crowd-pleasing relationship established in Captain America: Civil War with an appearance in Homecoming.

The new Spider-Man also stars Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton and Donald Glover. It is due to be released in cinemas on July 7, 2017.
