Marvel Studios has had a fruitful partnership with the NBA for the 2017 Finals.
Fans who watched the Golden State Warriors fall to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 were treated to the epic first trailer for the long-awaited Black Panther movie. But that’s still quite a ways away—Spider-Man: Homecoming is next on the docket.
To get people hyped for their next offering, a series of ads promoting the film and the Finals have aired featuring Tom Holland as Spider-Man in a quest to obtain snacks for retired superstar Tim Duncan at Tony Stark’s viewing party.
The series (of commercials, not the basketball games) wrapped up last night and the Iron Man himself posted all of the clips edited together for your pleasure. Check out the video above to see them.
The humorous video provides a small taste of what to expect when Spider-Man: Homecoming premieres next month, with some funny cameos from Duncan, Magic Johnson, and DJ Khaled. Stark is the type of person who would expect people attend his party without actually showing up himself, so that tracks. The only bad part of these adverts is that DJ Khaled never offers Spider-Man any keys to success.

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). 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 (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
The cast features Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Logan Marshall-Green, and Marisa Tomei.
The film is being directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car), based on a screenplay by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley (Vacation reboot) and Jon Watts & Christopher Ford and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers.
