If one rumor pans out, you might not have to wait much longer to see the first footage from Marvel/Sony's upcoming "Spider-Man: Homecoming." ComicBook.com has heard from unnamed sources that the first trailer for the new Spider-Man film will screen ahead of this December's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story."
Sony and Marvel have not officially confirmed this information, so it's still just a rumor for now. The timing would make sense, though, as "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is due to arrive next July. And we already saw the first footage from "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" last month, and it opens in May 2017. So if Marvel's debuting trailers seven months before the film opens, then December's "Rogue One" makes perfect sense for "Spider-Man: Homecoming."
There's also the fact that both films are in the Disney family, so pairing one with the other would make sense. We've yet to see footage from the film, or even any real official photos. We've seen concept art of the Vulture and plenty of set pics of Spidey in action. You can read the synopsis for the film below.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Marvel Studios’ “Captain: Civil War,” begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
Directed by Jon Watts, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. The film opens July 7, 2017.
"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" arrives in theaters on December 16.
