Spider-Man: Homecoming Director Says The Movie Has A “Unique, Surprising” Tone


As per the director of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jon Watts, the movie has a “unique, surprising” tone that is going to differentiate it from the spidey movies that came prior to it. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he spoke of how the story builds in scope and significance around it.

“I think it has a unique, surprising tone that’s different from the others, and different from the other movies in this universe,” explained Watts. “I’m pretty proud of the tone we struck. It’s fun. It’s able to go from a very small story and really emotional small stakes and just get bigger and bigger until it’s on a massive scale without ever losing sight of the story we were trying to tell.”

As it was seen in the new trailer that arrived earlier today, the movie is going to consist of both, action and humor. The movie is going to show 15 years old high school going Spidey who is combatting against the evil Vulture (Michael Keaton).

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Holland said that the movie was a “nonstop job”. Most of his work was done by his own stunts which made him end up injuring himself at the set on the first day. Here’s what he had to say about that:

“I’ve never worked harder on anything in my life. It was a nonstop job and I felt so passionate and proud of what we were creating. I’m so proud that I was able to give my best, and I’m so grateful that I didn’t get injured. I did a lot of stunts. At the very end, I fell down some stairs, and tweaked my ACL just a little bit.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming is going to be released on the 7th of July and it stars Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, and Donald Grover. Check out the trailer here:
