‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Gets The Honest Trailers Treatment

The latest installment of 'Honest Trailers' takes shots at 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and Sony's previous attempt to create a Spider-Man cinematic universe.

Amazing Spider-Man
Spider-Man: Homecoming is just a few days away from hitting theaters and audiences are curious to see the latest take on the famous wall crawler. Now, Screen Junkies has released a new installment of their Honest Trailers series that skewers the web slinger’s previous standalone film titled The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The video criticizes the film for including too many villains and overloading the movie with hints of a now cancelled cinematic universe featuring supporting characters from the film.

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Directed by Jon Watts, the film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice, Abraham Attah, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released in theaters on July 7, 2017.
