Tom Holland recently appeared for Dell at the 2017 Consumers Electronics show and revealed another detail regarding the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. Holland addressed the crowd and said that he was playing Peter Parker in the film. He added that Parker was a Midtown High, a STEM school in Queens.
STEM is a common acronym used for, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. If a school focuses on STEM, most of the curriculum is based on learning more about those subjects. In Captain America: Civil War, it was clear that Parker was focused on science and developing new technology. It seems as though Midtown High might be part of the reason for that passion.
“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.”
The cast includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes/The Vulture, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Zendaya as Michelle, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz/Shocker, as well as, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan along with Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice and Abraham Attah.
Spider-Man: Homecoming opens in theaters on Friday, July 7.
