There'll be another solo Spider-Man movie hitting theaters this year called Spider-Man: Homecoming which stars a different actor. Gone are Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's Spidey portrayals. That role has been passed over to Tom Holland in what appears to be a film laden with a charming underdog narrative, which is further honed by Holland's kid-like appearance and decorum.
That aside, Spider-Man and Marvel fans are definitely rapt in anticipation for the new film, out July 7 in the United States. Old Spidey has been in a lot of clever TV spots lately, and the newest one puts him behind none other than DJ Khaled inside a convenience store. The new spot is part of a series of ads running during the NBA Finals.
Spider-Man: Homecoming NBA Finals TV Spots
In the previous two spots, Peter Parker was invited to an NBA Finals viewing party at Tony Stark's home. But Happy Hogan, played by Jon Favreau, asked our friendly neighborhood hero to grab some snacks for Tim Duncan. The newest spot is sort of a continuation of those previous ads.
Titled "The Bodega," the latest ad shows Parker, donning his full Spidey costume, as he grabs some snacks from a convenience store. Only he runs into DJ Khaled, and both are struck with each other's presence immediately. Two ladies inside the store then ask to take a picture, not with music industry star DJ Khaled, but with Spidey. Whether Spidey will ever get to Tony Stark's NBA Finals party remains to be seen, although the distractions our hero faces while running around town are certainly delaying him along the way.
More importantly, though, why is Spider-Man even watching the NBA Finals? Surely there's a whole town and a lot of lives to save, Parker. What's with the dilly-dallying? Kidding aside, our friendly neighborhood hero probably just needs some downtime. Hopefully he makes it in time to watch the game.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is the latest film based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man. Marvel Studios and Columbia Pictures co-produced the film, with Sony Pictures Releasing handling distribution. It is intended to be the second reboot of the Spider-Man film franchise after 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man, which in turn was a reboot of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy.
The film takes place several months after the events of Captain America: Civil War. It stars Holland as Peter Parker, who, with the help of Tony Stark, tries to balance his high school life and his duties as a superhero. Vulture, played by Michael Keaton, is the film's marquee villain.
