Spider-Man: Homecoming is no doubt the most anticipated movie of summer 2017. After the introduction of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe via Captain America: Civil War, fans have been clamoring for the new version of the webheads first solo feature. The lucky few who attended San Diego Comic Con were treated to footage showcasing Peter navigating the world of high school as well as the reveal of the film’s villain, The Vulture, played by Michael Keaton. But for the rest of us, we’ve only gotten mere table scraps in the form of some set photos snapped while the production was filming on location in New York City but it seems that might change when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters next month on December 16.
According to Comicbook, sources close to the production claim that the first official trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming will be attached to Rogue One. Sony did not respond to Comicbook‘s request for comment but the timing makes total sense. The film will still be 8 months from release, however. Much of Marvel’s target audience, as well as general audiences, will be rushing out to the theater to see Jyn Erso lead a band of rebel spies as they steal the plans for the original Death Star. It will be the perfect opportunity to tantalize Spidey fans while getting the most exposure possible.
The film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Zendaya, Martin Starr, Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr., with a script penned by Jonathan Goldstein and John Frances Daley. Directed by Jon Watts.
