Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently undergoing principal photography, and although many photos from the film’s production have been surfacing the internet that would make J. Jonah Jameson himself salivating, legitimate plot details have remained thin for the Jon Watts-directed film. All that is known at this point is that this newly re-rebooted Spider-Man story will show Peter Parker (Tom Holland) getting by in high school – making this the first true, coming-of-age movie for Marvel Studios. Despite the heavily guarded details on the film’s story, actor Martin Starr of Silicon Valley fame was featured on Conan intending to spill some details on the film – particularly his character.
Conan O’Brien was hosting his TBS show and had much of the Silicon Valley ensemble present with him, excluding T.J. Miller who is in London shooting Ready Player One with Steven Spielberg and Martin Starr who is in Atlanta for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Unfortunately, as Starr is about to share the goods, he is abruptly censored by the “Comic Con Spoiler Police.”
Regardless of the lack of concrete information, it is always fun to see actors on the set of these comic book films invigorating us with excitement for their eventual release – in this case, next Summer. At the moment, it is still unknown what Starr’s role in the movie will be, but I am willing to bet that he will portray a teacher at Peter’s high school – given him mentioning, “I play a t-” which to my ears sounds like that would be the case. His wardrobe adds to that speculation as well. I can see him playing either a science or history teacher – maybe even give off a Ben Stein vibe from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. After all, Kevin Feige has described this film to be like a John Hughes movie.
