Spider-Man PS4 Trailer Teases Showdown with Kingpin

Tom Holland wants Tobey Maguire to play Uncle Ben in future Spider-Man movies

Spider-Man PS4 Screen 5

"I think that'd be super amusing, but I don't think he'll do it", Holland said.

I could be paraphrasing, here.

Fortunately for us, Spider-Man Homecoming doesn't disappoint, it's both lighthearted and action-packed and does the character of Spider-Man justice.

The film claimed this weekend's worldwide box office with $72.3 million, having taken in $261 million overseas, racking up more than $469 million in overall totals since its release earlier this month. Peter Parker's Aunt May has got a major revamp in Spider-Man: Homecoming and is being played by Marisa Tomei, and there's no reason her husband (Uncle Ben is May's husband in the Marvel universe), shouldn't get an upgrade too.


The video also includes interviews with developer Insomniac Games about their vision for the project, plus how it makes Peter Parker and Spider-Man's worlds collide. It's somewhat refreshing to see a comic book movie that's not about the end of the world, or a blue laser extending up to the heavens that will result in the death of every man, woman, and child in the city.

Despite serious reservations about the potential delivery of The Vulture in the film, Spider-Man: Homecoming has turned out to be one of the big successes of the summer blockbuster season. They even have Spider-Man run through the backyards in the neighbourhood in a similar fashion to Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Now, at last, Spidey can interact with the other Marvel heroes (except for the X-Men, who belong to 20th Century Fox, but that's a whole other story), adding a much-needed teenager's perspective to the affairs of Norse gods, irradiated green monsters, and patriotic Nazi-punchers. He looks up to Iron Man (Robert Downey Junior) for help and clarity. Homecoming is a real joy to experience.

It's been a few years since Tobey Maguire has starred in the Spidey universe, but he's not that old. "The Spider-Man", as he's called, is a YouTube celebrity, loosely tied to the Avengers, but he wants to be an official Avenger, pestering Tony Stark's right-hand man Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) for an invitation.
