Silicon Valley Star Reveals New Details About His Spider-Man: Homecoming Character


“Spider-Man: Homecoming” is set to hit theaters in July, and there’s still a lot of mystery surrounding the film. Marvel likes to keep their secrets locked up as tight as possible, and there’s still a lot of speculation in regards to which characters some of the actors could be playing.

“Silicon Valley” star Martin Starr is part of the film and he recently told The Wrap that he will be playing a teacher at Peter Parker’s high school.

“I’m the academic decathlon coach and one of the teachers at the school so I have a bit of a thing in it,” he said.

So far two different trailers have been released for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and judging from the trailers “Homecoming” will be unlike any other Spider-Man movie we’ve seen before.

Starr talked about the plot and noted that the movie will show a unique take on who Spider-Man is.

“It’s capitalizing on popularity and a story that’s very rich and dense, so there’s a lot left to tell,” he said. “And this isn’t a familiar take on it — this is a unique kind of take of a younger Spider-Man trying to figure out life again. The story has a lot of action and fun in it, but it’s also a sweet, coming-of-age story of a kid.”

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
