During their Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios unveiled the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is currently filming in Atlanta. While the footage hasn’t been released online, we’ve already seen a bunch of descriptions of what was shown. In the clip, Peter Parker is in class, but instead of paying attention, he’s watching a clip of himself fighting Giant-Man in the airport fight. When asked by io9 if there’s more to that scene than meets the eye, Holland had the following to say:
“That’s an interesting question and I don’t know if I can answer it fully. But it’s like when you go on holiday and you come home, back to school and you’re like ‘Wow, I wish I was on holiday again.’ And that’s all I can say without ruining anything.”
The actor then went on to talk about how the footage that was shown to those in attendance demonstrates director Jon Watts’ vision for the upcoming movie:
“I remember sitting down with Jon, a year ago, and saying ‘What do you want to make?’ And he told me he wants to make a movie that’s real. About a real high school student and what would he do if he got superpowers? And that’s exactly what we’ve been doing. And I think that trailer really demonstrates Jon’s vision and what it is he wants to create and I behind it 100%.”
