Questions with 'Spider-man: Homecoming' Director Jon Watts

28 June 2017, 03:30 | Lowell Little

As for the movie Sony is making, that would be the now untitled Spider-Man animated movie directed by Bob Persichetti (Puss in Boots, The Little Prince) and Peter Ramsey (Rise of the Guardian), from a script by Alex Hirsch (Gravity Falls), Phil Lord (The Lego Movie), Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie) and Rodney Rothman (22 Jump Street). The scene where a kid in an Iron Man mask tries to stand up to one of Justin Hammer's drones?

"It is Peter Parker", said Holland. "I can confirm that, that is Peter Parker".

As ever Spider-Man will have a lady in his life, although she may not know it, as he fawns over "it-girl" Liz Allan, one of Peter Parker's earliest flames in the comic books. In Iron Man 2 to be precise - and Tom Holland has even officially confirmed it.

"No way, for sure?" we asked again. "Maybe I've just done a big old spoiler, but it's out there now".

The confirmation also makes flawless sense. A blink-or-you'll-miss-it moment occurred when Iron Man blasts down a busy street. Queens-Peter's hometown! The big question now is: where was Aunt May and Uncle Ben? I kid ... I kid.

Tom Holland is the first actor cast in the role of Spider-Man -a teenage boy with superhuman spider powers thrust upon him- who is actually a teenager.

Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming, starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice and Abraham Attah, opens on Friday, July 7.

Homecoming helmet theme reflects the character's digital blue and red suit from the new movie which is slightly different from the classic comic Spider-Man graphic that was released before on the RPHA 11 lid.
