Las Vegas — Moviegoers have a little over a month until the Avengers return to theaters with “Captain America: Civil War.” But for those who attended the Los Angeles premiere of the epic on Tuesday night, or attended Sony Pictures' CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas, more about the highly anticipated feature was revealed.
During Sony's panel, Spider-Man/Peter Parker actor Tom Holland shared an exclusive clip from the superhero film. In it, Holland's character returns home from school to find Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sitting in his Queens apartment living room. After complimenting a unique car he noticed outside the building, he notices Tony’s presence and its clear he has some idea of who the billionaire is.
Tony says to Peter's Aunt May (Marissa Tomei) that he’s been emailing back and forth with Peter and that the he’s received a grant, much to her surprise. “Now, we’re in business,” Tony tells to the teen. When Peter asks if the grant involves some money coming his way, Tony seemingly agrees.
“I’m a superhero now,” Holland told the audience at CinemaCon. “I’m your Spider-Man.”
While the clip was short, it wasn’t the only Spider-Man update at CinemaCon. Holland, alongside Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman, revealed the title of his 2017 standalone feature. The 19-year-old British actor shared that his film will be titled “Spiderman: Homecoming,” a reference to his character's high school years and Spider-Man's homecoming to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
“It really is a homecoming for this character,” Holland said. “Peter is trying to find his true identity and where he belongs in the world.”
Marvel fans will get to see Holland portray the spider-web slinging hero in “Civil War,” which premieres in theaters on May 6. “Spiderman: Homecoming” debuts July 7, 2017.
