During Game 1 of the NBA Finals, a brand new TV spot for Marvel and Sony’s upcoming new film, Spider-Man: Homecoming aired. This is the second TV spot for the new film related to the NBA Finals and even serves as a continuation from the previous ad (which you can watch here).
In the first ad, we see Peter Parker (Tom Holland) receive an invitation from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) to join a viewing party for the game. By the time this new ad starts, we see Peter staring at his reflection on an elevator door fixing his hair when suddenly, the doors open to reveal Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau).
Much to Peter’s chagrin, Happy sends him to go downtown to gather some snacks for the party. We then see him in the Spidey suit when he notices two burglars rob a big screen television set with the game playing. Peter, being your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man stops them as fast as he can so he can get back to the party to watch the game.
The TV spot ends with yet another hilarious cameo from Stan Lee. As Peter flees, Lee expresses that he thinks he recognizes him. You can check it out below.
Lee has made cameo appearances in every theatrical Spider-Man film since Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man was released in 2002. One of his most memorable cameos in any Marvel film was his appearance in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012, where we see him in a library with headphones on – oblivious to the fight between Spider-Man and the Lizard right behind him.
Do you think this cameo is the one featured in the upcoming film? Or is this actually one specifically made for this NBA Finals TV spot? Either way, it’s always a pleasure to see Stan “The Man” Lee having fun onscreen with some of the characters he helped create.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
7 Greatest Legacy Superheroes In Comics
Comic books are an old medium so quite a few characters have a strong legacy. Some heroes have such a strong legacy that other individuals have taken up their mantle and continued the fight in their honor.
Superheroes are much more than people just running around beating up the bad guys. Each hero embodies different values that represent some of the best facets of humanity. Kids look up to superheroes for their values, not their muscles. When a hero stands for something, certain people will adopt that value as their own and continue their fight. Most superheroes are mortal and as a result of that will have to end their heroic careers at some point in the future. But if they are able to develop a legacy someone else wants to preserve then they can rest easy knowing the good fight will continue.
