After spending a good portion of the summer in Atlanta, the cast and crew of Spider-Man: Homecoming have made the trip to New York to finish out principal photography. By shooting scenes in the actual hometown of Peter Parker, the production will be able to better infuse the film with a distinctly New York atmosphere. The majority of set photos that have been released so far have focused on Parker’s superhero duties, but the film will give Tom Holland plenty of time to act outside of the suit.
Holland is one of the few cast members known to be in New York currently and with filming now resumed, he was once again back on set. The one thing that Atlanta could not replicate is New York’s subway system and that is exactly where Holland found himself filming scenes today.
Just Jared posted several new photos from the set that feature Holland riding the subway. Although there is not much to gather from the photos outside of Peter also being an avid Starbucks fan, he does appear in two different outfits. Given Peter’s decision to be as normal as possible in light of his powers, taking the subway is about as normal as people can get in New York so seeing him use public transportation makes sense.
If the photos were not enough, abouttomholland, a fan account on Twitter, has compiled some new set videos of Parker suiting up in an ally, as well as some photos of him in Hello Kitty pajamas as he waits for his dry cleaning to finish.
These set photos and videos are not going to provide much in the way of plot details, but they do show a fun tone for Spider-Man’s next adventure. As Peter struggles with being a hero and a regular teen, people seeing him walk around in Hello Kitty pajamas will certainly not help make him one of the cool kids at school. This type of stuff will certainly be a point for comedic relief during the film, but also show more of who Peter is.
As for the subway scenes, there is not much to take from them as they could easily be a few seconds each to show Peter’s normal day routine. Then again, Spider-Man has had some rough encounters with the subway in past appearances, so an action scene may not be too far behind.
