After years of assuming Sony and Marvel would never be able to work together, here we are: with our first official trailer for Spider-Man's brand new feature film in the MCU (after his introduction in Captain America: Civil War), Spider-Man: Homecoming -
If nothing else, the trailer looks very promising: we have a fun, quippy Spider-Man, the tone of a John Hughes-esque high school movie is perfect for Peter Parker and something we haven't really seen in any of the Spider-Man films yet, it looks like Tony Stark is hanging around a lot, AND Michael Keaton's threatening to murder Peter and his hot aunt! All the ingredients that make for a great Spider-Man film.
Oh, and just for completion's sake, here's the international trailer, which has a tiiiny bit more footage:
But there are some more details hidden in the trailer that we think we need to discuss - including one EXTREMELY weird Easter Egg that we really want an explanation for...
Ah yes, the greatest scientists of our time - Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Marie Curie, and the Guy Who Accidentally Turned Himself Into a Green Rage Monster and Once Helped Build An AI That Nearly Destroyed the World.
Roger Sterling version unfortunately, not the superior 1940s Dominic Cooper version. YEAH, I SAID IT.
Did Hawkeye take a break to film this for his YouTube channel, HawkguyHawkguyProductions? Or was that where Vision was hiding out for half the fight?
...alongside the Tinkerer, who IS wearing a very Shocker-esque outfit, but it's definitely just the Tinkerer.
Here's the REAL Shocker, for those of you who are really excited for that.
...although, wisely, they left Spider-Man's mask on so we wouldn't have to see his face, ala a similar moment in Spider-Man 2.
...it's the EXACT SAME SHIRT PEPPER POTTS WAS WEARING IN IRON MAN 3.
Spotted by eagle-eyed Tumblr Peggy-Carter, it appears that either both Peter Parker AND Pepper Potts both shop at the same online t-shirt site, or (more likely) Peter totally hooked up with Pepper and accidentally wore one of her t-shirts. For those of you who can't make out the grainy details, the graphic on the shirt reads:
Or, uh, it's just a coincidence. But it IS a little weird that Tony keeps getting involved with people who shop at SnorgTees, right?
