Strange Web of Spider-Man

The joint work of Marvel and Sony on the latest version of Spider-Man is making for some interesting storytelling.  I was surprised at the approach filmmakers took when Tom Holland’s Peter Parker was introduced in Captain America: Civil War.  Tony Stark’s role in outfitting and empowering the character seemed to take away some of the “everyman” nature of the character.  There’s a lot of Tony Stark in the latest trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming that might remedy that set-up.

Granted, that could create a “work to deserve this” arc that also doesn’t quite go with the character.  We’ll see when the movie drops this summer.  It looks to be a good blend of small and large moments.  And a less self-assured, less brooding web-slinger might be what the cinematic doctors ordered for us.
