There’s a cool, seven second teaser out for tomorrow’s new Spider-Man: Homecoming Teaser, but the big news is what we are now learning about how enmeshed the new film is in the MCU. You can’t really expect too much from seven seconds, but the short footage we did get today includes what appears to be a drone that doubles as part of Spidey’s costume!
For me, the bigger news is some new info that director, Jon Watts has to say about the how they’ll be using the Marvel Cinematic Universe to help build their own, specifically, how the bad guys will be using the leftover hardware from the alien invasion of New York.
Plus, with his new baddie Watts gets to use “this neat junk from all the other movies,” he says. “It’s a really great starting point for the villains to have the Vulture picking over the stuff and finding the valuable exotic elements and having the Tinkerer assemble into something that could be used.”
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a place “where you can be a villain and a real person, too,” Watts says. “Being a supervillain isn’t necessarily your full-time job.”
It’s nice to see that Sony will be taking advantage of the full benefit of the Disney films that have come out from Marvel. It would have been a shame if they just used it for the cameos from people like Iron Man.
