Ever since Tom Holland made his debut as Peter Parker in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, fans have been eagerly waiting to see him embark on his own adventure in Spider-Man: Homecoming. As its summer premiere date approaches, viewers are gradually getting a better idea of what they can expect from the webslinger’s next film.
1. It won’t be an origin story
By this point, audiences have seen the big-screen retelling of the spider bite and the death of Uncle Ben twice. Thankfully, we won’t be seeing it a third time around. Writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein have confirmed that the forthcoming reboot will not be another origin story.
As Goldstein told Grantland’s Andy Greenwald in 2016, “I think that everybody feels like, you know he got bit by a spider and you know Uncle Ben died. We probably don’t need to revisit that.”
The trailer also makes this clear, as it shows Holland’s Parker equipped with his Spidey suit and already taking down bad guys (albeit not always successfully).
