Following the release on Friday of two new posters for “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have added a third to the mix, depicting the wall-crawler searching for the quickest route home.
The painted image depicts a costumed Peter Parker hanging on to a Brooklyn-Queens Expressway sign, appearing ready to take the Queens exit back home to Aunt May — whom he undoubtedly hopes isn’t entertaining Tony Stark again.
While the previous two posters firmly linked Tom Holland’s wall-crawler to Manhattan, showing him relaxing in the shadow of its skyline and clinging to Avengers Tower, this one brings him closer to his home turf of Queens. Of course, we still see Manhattan, and Avengers Tower, in the distance, so none of that is too far away.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” follows the events of “Captain America: Civil War.” The film, described as “a coming-of-age story,” finds Peter attending his high school for gifted kids, trying to impress his new benefactor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and also dealing with a pesky arch enemy, the Vulture (Michael Keaton).
Directed by Jon Watts (“Clown”), written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (“Vacation”) and starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., Zendaya, Donald Glover and many, many others, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
