Spider-Man: Homecoming Will Bring Fans Closer to the Action

There are certainly a number of things that set apart Tom Holland's Spider-Man from the previous actors and iterations of the web-slinger.

However, from what we've seen in Holland's appearances post-Civil War, his abilities may prove to be a good addition to the superhero formula. Speaking to Den of Geek, director Jon Watts shared a little about the process that he undertook when it case to shooting the film's action sequences:

"If you actually had a Spider-Man who could do all this stuff, you know, you would shoot it with actual equipment. So it's really cool to do that [the swoopy camera]. I always call it the Peter Jackson camera moves, where the camera is going like ten thousand miles. But I didn't want to do that for this, because I wanted to keep it all as grounded as possible. So, whether it was shooting with a drone camera or a helicopter or a cable-cam, or even just handheld, up on a roof chasing after him, I wanted it to feel like we were there with him, and everything was something you could actually film."

Apart from Holland's talent to be able to push himself with some of the stunts in the movie, Watts' ability with the camera is pretty much the basis for this. I appreciate how Watts is the kind of director who pre-visualizes everything in his movies before he got to Spider-Man: Homecoming. And even if he now has a big team to handle it, the practice is still very much in the team.

That's probably why a lot of people are excited with how Watts will be handling the action sequence in the movie.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be out in theaters on July 7.
