Zendaya Coleman

Hitting movie theatres at the beginning of next month, 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' will serve as the first solo film for the web-slinging superhero in which the titular character is a part of the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe. With Tom Holland's portrayal of Spidey already introduced in recent MCU flick 'Captain America: Civil War', fans have already been given a taste of what to expect from the wise-cracking hero.

It's fair to say that the history of Spider-Man movies is a little all over the place. The original trilogy was for the most part a big success, with actor Tobey Maguire heading up proceedings. Then came the two 'Amazing Spider-Man' films with Andrew Garfield, which didn't do quite as well. Now, Holland takes over the superhero mantle, and whilst his success remains to be seen, an opening weekend of $100 million is expected in the US alone. It's looking likely this version of Spider-Man could be the most beloved to-date.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer


Peter Parker is a teenager who has a lot to deal with after being bitten by a radioactive spider. He suddenly finds himself equipped with the ability to climb buildings and spin webs - powers that he knows he wants to use for good but of which he really doesn't know where to start. He's being mentored by Tony Stark, who suggests he keep to small-time crime rather than taking on the city's supervillains, but he's ready to take on the big guys and he's certainly tired of being patronised by Iron Man who doesn't think he's ready to become an Avenger especially when he's still got high school to complete. When a new menace in the shape of the Vulture makes himself known in New York, the newly dubbed Spider-Man wants to help take him down, but how can he do that with the Avengers trying to keep him out of the loop?
