So, *will* there be a Spider-Man (Homecoming) 3?

It’s an interesting question: apparently Tom Holland is under the impression that there’s going to be a trilogy of standalone Spider-Man movies.  Certainly there’s going to be a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, because that’s already been agreed to. And Spider-man will be in Avengers: Infinity War, because that’s already been agreed to, too. But Holland was specifically talking about a third Spider-Man standalone, which has not been agreed to. As we all know by now, Spidey’s in the MCU as the result of some extremely intricate negotiations between two media conglomerates who both had something to gain by working together (Disney got to put Spider-Man in a flick, Sony got the same with regard to Iron Man, and probably some other MCU earners).  As that article notes, if they want to continue this, there’s got to be a new deal.

I suspect that there will be a new deal, actually. But that’s only if Spider-Man: Homecoming is a blockbuster. If it is, then sharing the toys is in everybody’s long-term business interests. Sony makes money off of Marvel intellectual properties in a way that doesn’t make them feel like they’re making the universe slightly worse, Disney gets access to Spider-Man merchandising revenue streams without having to be even a little bit illegal, oh, yeah, the fans get to see Spidey and Cap and Thor hang out, and everybody is happy.

If Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t tank. If it does, well, that’s why they call it an experiment. Just business, boychik.


The new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer.

Apparently expecting Tony Stark to just create a super-suit and not trick it out with, well, everything is an absurdity.  There’s no way Peter can hope to keep that thing permanently. And yeah, I know that there’s a clip from an earlier trailer showing that it was taken away from him at one point. He’ll still get it back for the finale, because that’s how it happens in the movies.

Also: this movie is still looking very promising.


So, hey, some of the new Spider-Man: Homecoming musical score.

You might find it of interest.

…Amazing, isn’t it?  To be pandered to, I mean. And competently, too.


I am *not* putting up the new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer.

It is FAR too spoiler-y for anybody who hates spoilers in trailers.  I personally don’t, actually: and I generally don’t, unless it involves Star Wars somehow.  But if you’re trying to avoid finding out what Spider-Man: Homecoming’s entire plot is then don’t watch the latest trailer.

PS: The announcement of the teaser trailer preceding the trailer for the show “It” dropped.  I’m not putting that one up because this sh*t is getting ridiculous.


OK, they FINALLY got the Spider-Man trailer up.

Spider-Man: Homecoming looks… good.  I’ve been burned before on this sort of thing, but it looks like it’s going to be about Peter proving that he’s not a kid. Which is going to be a nice change from the usual origin story.
