Marvel and Sony’s highly anticipated team up for the brand new, new reboot (or is that re-reboot, I get so easily confused) has finally dropped, and it seems to hit all the points fans have been hoping for: it’s most definitely a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Look, it’s Tony Stark! Oh, there’s a flashback to Captain America: Civil War! Wow, those bank robbers are dressed up as The Avengers!), there’s a lovely, light feel to the Peter Parker/high school stuff and the rest of it has a definite MCU vibe but skews lower to ground level (as advised in this very trailer by Tony Stark himself). Also, we get our first glimpse at Michael Keaton’s Vulture which, after the actor’s turn in Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), feels very meta!
Here’s hoping that the sour memory left by the last, committee-led, studio notes stuffed Sony attempt at Marvel’s webbed wonder is well and truly wiped out by this film when it arrives in theaters next summer!
