Spider-Man: Homecoming may be a few months away, but Marvel and Sony are already pulling out the stops for its publicity. As summer ramps up, fans can expect to see more web-slinging goodness hit television and the Internet to prepare them for Peter Parker's debut. Now, in honor of the NBA Finals, Marvel has just released a hilarious TV spot for Spider-Man: Homecoming which sees Peter Parker fanboy over Tim Duncan. Oh - and Stan Lee also makes a cameo too!
The TV spot begins with Peter walking through what looks like an Avengers headquarters. Approaching an elevator, the ride opens to reveal Happy Hogan who looks relieved to see Peter in front of him. “Perfect timing,” Happy tells Peter. “I need you to go downtown and get snacks for Tim Duncan.”
The teenage vigilante is then seen suiting up in an alley cursing Happy before a robbery catches his eye. Sighing, Spider-Man goes towards the crime and tells the TV thieves, “You are really screwing up my night.”
Still, the robbery does let him check out the NBA finals which are playing in the store. Even if the hero does have to miss the game because of his Spidey responsibilities, he gets to catch a sweet game.
“I just want to watch the game!” Peter says as he runs away, leaving the two thieves webbed up off the ground.
However, that’s not all the TV spot has in store. After Spider-Man runs away, the scene changes to show Stan Lee standing on the street corner. Dressed in a green sweater, the icon can be seen pointing, saying, “I think I know that guy!”
