Comic-Con 2016 was a busy event for Marvel Studios. On top of releasing new movie information on Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Thor: Ragnarok, they also took the time to give everyone’s favorite wall crawler a moment to shine.

They started by releasing the new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Unfortunately, it has been kept under wraps so there will be a small delay for everyone who wasn’t at the panel to witness it. Reports from the panel said Director Jon Watts described the film as:

“a straight-up high school movie, about a 15-year old kid. We know what it’s like to be a billionaire playboy inventor. We learned what it’s like to be an alien God… We’re going to learn what it’s like to be kid in 10th grade going through puberty.”

The convention wasn’t done with Spider-Man as a rumor was leaked at another panel. At the Diamond Select panel, the toy company let it slip they were already working on figures for the film and let three names slip out, Shocker, Tinkerer, and the Vulture. The Vulture had already been rumored to be the key villain in the film but this potential appearance of the Tinkerer and Shocker came out of nowhere. Hopefully these rumors will be found truthful later on. Let’s also hope the movie doesn’t get overloaded with villains like the last Spider-Man film was. With any luck it will just turn out the Tinkerer won’t actually fight but will just supply the technology for The Vulture and Shocker to commit crimes with. Further details can be seen in the video below.

  1. Obviously it’s impossible to fully judge a movie based solely on vague casting reports. Hell, we may not even get a good sense of what Spider-Man: Homecoming will be like until the the first trailer comes out. Still, taking into account how the previous Spider-Man movies with three villains turned out, it’s not unreasonable to be concerned. Who knows, considering how many casting reports have come out for this movie in the last month alone, there could even be a fourth villain added to the mix. It’s already been made clear that Spider-Man: Homecoming will feel different from the previous entries, like through its coming-of-age tone and added humor. Maybe director Jon Watts and writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein have a better handle on juggling multiple antagonists. If Michael Keaton, Logan Marshall-Green and Bokeem Woodbine are indeed playing three established Spidey rogues, let’s hope this latest feature does a better job of adapting and balancing their roles than its predecessors did.
