CBMB: Spider-Man Homecoming Heads to NYC!
By Muuka Muyumba
Last week, Tom Holland and some of the crew from the upcoming rebirth of the web-slinger said good-bye to the Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, as the production moved to New York City. Holland is reprising his role as Peter Parker after his brilliant debut in Captain America: Civil War, and shortly after getting of the promotional trail, he headed to Georgia to start on Homecoming. Typical production on Marvel films usually takes about 5 months meaning production on Homecoming is likely to run through December.
Today, some more photos came out showing Holland, in costume, and dangling from some classic NYC fire escapes. The images are an window in Marvel’s approach which is very reminiscent of the comics. An overworked Peter Parker with his mouth unmasked to eat a lunch his Aunt May probably packed for him.
Holland stars as Marvel’s first born son in Homecoming, which is said to be a take on an 80s teen film; possibly a day-in-the-life of a fledgling hero. The film also stars Michael Keaton as The Vulture, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May Parker, Zendaya as Michelle, Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, Laura Harrier, along with a cast of thousands. Jon Watts is directing the film from a script by John Daley Francis and Jonathan Goldstein.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
