Sunday Preview: 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'

Okay, it's no secret that I'm a Marvel fanatic, but even been a Spider-Man fanatic for even longer. 

I was thrilled when it was announced that Peter Parker would finally be joining the MCU, and even more thrilled when his first outing in Captain America: Civil War was one of the best parts of that movie. After a few stalled outings in The Amazing Spider-Man, it was good to see that producers were finally getting back to the light-hearted joy that makes Spider-Man such an enjoyable character.

Now, we have our first look at MCU's take on the Web-head, and it looks pretty great. When initial reports stated that the movie looked like it would be a "John Hughes Superhero movie," I was even more like, count me in! 

What we get here is less John Hughes and more superhero, but it is still Marvel, after all. But there's just enough of Peter Parker's frustration at being treated like a kid when he wants to be an Avenger to make this very, very promising. Watch the full trailer here:
