When Tom Holland’s Spider-Man appeared for the first time in Captain America: Civil War, his presence in the MCU raised many questions. And now, with the release of his first solo film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, many of these questions have been answered. But of course, there are still other stories about Peter Parker’s ongoing story and his friends in the Marvel movie world that we will have to wait for the upcoming movies to be solved.
That said, here are our 5 biggest questions from WTF on Spider-Man: Homecoming … Spoilers, of course, follow!
As the return of the return, the character of Zendaya, Michelle, drops a bomb: her friends call her “MJ,” she says! Of course, this comes after months of rumors and reports that the actress was playing the MCU version of the iconic love interest of Spider-Man MJ, a.k.a. Mary Jane Watson. Was the Internet right about Michelle’s true identity? In a word, no.
The boss of Marvel Studios and homecoming producer Kevin Feige recently told Jim Vejvoda of IGN, “We never considered it a great revelation necessarily, but more simply a fatal tribute to its Past adventures and past love. She’s not Mary-Jane Watson. She was never Mary-Jane Watson. She was still this new high school friend, Michelle, whom we know there is an “M” in Michelle and an “M” at Mary. [Laughs] So we’re so smart and we thought, “Would not it be nice if his initials were MJ?” … Will she go out with Peter? Will they fall in love? She seems intrigued by him. There’s a nice chemistry out there. Who knows what will happen in the upcoming films? ”
At a time of Homecoming, Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan called some of the precious cargo transported to the Avengers’ facilities. (Speaking of this, is it simply us or is it confusing that the relocation of Manhattan’s headquarters is taking place now even though the new facility has existed since the end of the age of Ultron?) Good mentions some special remarks The articles, including the belt of Thor, which he can not pronounce the name, but we know of the comic, is Megingjord (it increases its strength, does not it?). But another piece of equipment we’re learning is a new shield prototype that Tony designed for Captain America, who … eh?
The thing is, the civil war ended with Tony and Cape beating the devil and partying. Yes, Cap has sent Tony this note and a phone with a message “I’m still there for you, bud,” but it’s still clear that Cap is a fugitive while Tony is running what’s left of the Avengers. In addition, Tony took the Cap shield at the end of this movie (“My Dad Made This Shield!”), So why would he be making the old Avenger a new one?
Of course, Cap had other shields in comics, including a built for him by Tony Stark in fact during the period when Steve Rogers resigned as Captain America and became “The Captain.” But again, why create a new shield when you have the old shield? And why bother you at all if you are not even on the same team?
O.K., we have Iron Man. We have the vision. And we … ah … who do we have?
After the Civil War, the Vingtères as a team were essentially fractured. Cap and everyone on his side in this conflict is now apparently fugitive from the law. From Team Iron Man, War Machine was seriously injured and learned to walk again when we saw him for the last time, Black Widow went on the race, Black Panther (who was really on his side all the time) Returned to Wakanda and Spidey went back to Queens. So there’s not a lot of Twenty, is it?
And yet, Tony and Pepper Potts come very close to Homecoming to hold a press conference announcing Spider-Man as the newest member of the team. The vision is also mentioned, which makes sense since it was always dragging, playing with a failure when we saw it for the last time. But the implication in Homecoming is that there is an active list of Avengers at stake since the Civil War. And maybe there is, but we are certainly kept in the dark about who they are. For now, anyway.
While it seemed that Peter exposed his classic spider sense for a while in Civil War while fighting the winter soldier, Homecoming has no trace of that old Spider-Man ability. We know that he wears these glasses and lenses to filter all the information he takes with his powers, but it’s not quite the same. And some fans wondered if the technological costume of Stark, Peter, in the film simply means that the character no longer needs its sixth sense.
But do not be afraid, true believers. Kevin Feige says the Dutch version of Spider-Man has a spider sense. “No, I think he has it, and I think he has it with or without that costume,” Feige told IGN. “I think the way we’re exploring it in a cinematic sense will change. I mean, it was kind of a lot of the previous versions [on the big screen] and we thought we were going to make it some kind of Internal type, sort of Second nature for him. ”
The Homecoming Intermediate Credits scene features Michael Keaton’s Vulture / Adrian Toomes, now incarcerated and entering his colleague Mac Gargan (Michael Mando). Gargan is also known as the supervillain the Scorpion in comics (and yes, this tattoo he has in the film gives us a very good idea of where the live version is heading as well). When he questions the Vulture about the rumor, he knows the secret identity of Spider-Man, Tooms stands and says if he knew he’d already revealed it.
But why would the Toomes not tell everyone who is Spidey really? The woodcutter toppled him, sent him to jail and ruined all his plans to provide his family (they even moved out after they were arrested). Can it be that he wants to save the secret of Peter’s identity for himself, so that when and if he’s ever released he can take revenge on Spider-Man?
Well, maybe. But we think there is more to it than that. Remember, his daughter Liz had feelings for Peter, so he would probably want to protect her. But also, Peter saved his life, and Toomes seems to be the kind of guy who would respect him. In addition, when IGN suggested to Feige and his homecoming producer, Amy Pascal, that Toomes “looks at this kid and has to see something of himself,” they agreed. “You get a gold star for that,” Pascal said.
