This week brought us the newest trailer for the upcoming DC “Justice League” movie and MARVEL couldn’t let their sleeping dogs or web slingers lie, because we have been treated to another taste of “Spiderman:Homecoming” in the form of a new action packed trailer.
This is the second trailer for this new era of Spiderman and the anticipation continues to rise. The first trailer gave us the John Hughes meets comic books world of Peter Parker and this new preview wipes away the angst to give us more of an adult threat with The Vulture, played with brilliant menace by Michael Keaton. Also, we received a clearer look at the possible mentor relationship between Parker and Tony Stark. It would be too easy to label it a father and son relationship, but we all know the downsides of heroes and their parental issues.
“Spiderman:Homecoming” is a movie this character has deserved for a long time and MARVEL is treating it with the respect other studios seem to have struggled to accomplish. This is a great year to be a movie fan and it’s great to see this web slinger finally come home.
“Spiderman:Homecoming” will swing into theater July 7th
The battle lines have been drawn and we know some of the soldiers that will take part in the upcoming Captain America: CIVIL WAR. As we wait for the official trailer release, fans have learned where the big green beast will stand in battle and that will be nowhere.
Mark Ruffalo, who is currently promoting his upcoming movie “Spotlight”, revealed that Hulk was very close to joining the Civil War battle and MARVEL had other ideas. Here is the comments that Ruffalo made to the Italian website Bad Taste …
“The reason is too great to be revealed in this movie (Civil War),” Ruffalo tells Badtaste.it. “I was in the script but then they removed my character. They don’t want to reveal where is he and why. I don’t even know if Hulk will be back soon.”
In the past, The Incredible Hulk has been an incredibly big pain to get translated to the silver screen and could this be another sign of MARVEL’s apathy towards getting the character the respect it deserves on the big screen. MARVEL has kept their plans under wraps, until the time is right and the events of Ultron shows that there should be more on the horizon for Hulk. As long as MARVEL has a winning hand in store for Banner, we can only hope Hulk will finally get his proper time in the spotlight.
