Watch New Spider-Man: Homecoming Scene
"A Film By Peter Parker."
Ahead of Spider-Man: Homecoming's release this week, Sony has published a four-minute clip from the superhero movie showing off "A Film By Peter Parker." The cool clip shows what happened when Tony Stark/Iron Man came to New York to recruit Spider-Man for a fight against Captain America in Civil War. We see some of Spider-Man's perspective during the airport battle in Germany, and then a lighter scene at the end.
Speaking to the PlayStation Blog, Homecoming director Jon Watts said the film does tell an origin story for Spider-Man, but it's unlike the others that have come before it.
"It's not the same moments of the origin story that we've seen before in other movies: we don't see Uncle Ben die, we don't see a spider bite," he said. "But I think this is the beginning of Spider-Man, in a way. He's still learning how to be a superhero. In a way, it is an origin story--just not one we've seen before."
Also in the interview, Watts said it was important for him to have Spider-Man come across as "regular kid" in the new film.
"He has to be dealing with the same kinds of problems that a regular kid is dealing with," Watts said. "We also have to know that Peter is smart, and learn about his home life. But ultimately, that's what makes Spider-Man, Spider-Man: he's just like you and me."
The main villain in Homecoming is Vulture, who is played by Michael Keaton. Watts said he was drawn to Vulture as a villain for a number of reasons, one of which was that Vulture is one of the first villains that Spider-Man ever came to know.
"And two, because it really opens up the possibilities of some very cool action sequences," Watts said. "A guy in a wingsuit fighting Spider-Man? [laughs] That was very attractive to me."
