“Spider-Man: Homecoming“ (PG-13)
Tom Holland takes his second turn as Peter Parker, in his first stand-alone Marvel movie. He’s 21 now, but was only 19 when he did “Captain America: Civil War”.
That gives Tom an advantage in the role, since Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were in their mid to late 20s when they first played Spider-Man. They were 26 and 28. They also didn’t have the full weight of the Marvel Cinematic Universe behind them.
“Homecoming” takes place a few months after the events in “Civil War”, which means he’s already got his high tech suit.
Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Evans are both in this one.
Captain America shows up in some educational videos the high school forces their students to watch, and Jon Favreau’scharacter, Happy Hogan, is assigned by Tony to keep an eye on Stark Industries’ newest “intern” and serve as his point of contact.
While Peter’s trying to learn how to be a hero, Michael Keaton comes onto the scene as a new villain. He plays a character called the Vulture, who salvaged some alien tech from the first “Avengers” movie to make advanced weaponry and a flying suit.
Marisa Tomei plays Peter’s Aunt May. Stan Lee returns for his traditional cameo. And Zendaya, Donald Glover and Hannibal Burress are also in it.
Sony’s predicting a conservative $80 million opening, but the critics love it and most people think it will easily clear $100 million.
