Watch Peter Parker’s Secret Vlog of ‘Civil War’ Ahead of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’
Kids these days, always plugged in to their smartphones and laptops and Instagrams, constantly suffering from the compulsion to record every aspect of their lives. For a superhero, this is probably a bad idea, given the whole secret identity thing and all — but our new Peter Parker is very much a millennial, and he’s going to vlog this whole thing if it kills him.
Marvel recently released the recording Peter Parker made of his whole experience during his first appearance Captain America: Civil War. This is definitely the most enthusiastic Spider-Man we’ve seen, and it’s such a joy to watch Tom Holland freak the hell out about stuff like private jets, hotel rooms, and the new suit Tony Stark gifts him. That’s such a touching moment there at the end when Peter lowers his phone in shock when he figures out Tony’s going to let him keep his new tricked-out suit.
Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May, under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark. Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man — but when the Vulture emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 7.
