On Saturday, Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts took to social media to tease an upcoming shoot for the film that involved a helicopter. Now, new set photos have dropped giving us a great look at what Watts has been filming the past couple of days. You can check out the gallery below:
During the course of filming for Homecoming, we’ve gotten several good looks at the new costume, so the real question these photos raise is who is Spidey saving? In the photos, there is one actress sporting two very different outfits who is more than likely just a stunt double. In the first batch of photos, the actress has red hair and is wearing what appears to be a sequin dress. Many have speculated that this could be the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Mary Jane Watson. However, this is unlikely, as the character this actress is doubling hasn’t been seen in any previous set photos. Given that Spider-Man: Homecoming has deviated ethnically from the comics for several characters, this girl may very well be any one of Peter’s classmates, from Glory Grant to Sha Shan Nguyen. However, it is more than likely that this character is simply a background extra and no one of any special significance. And while the actress in the pants may look different at first, it’s actually the same actress filming in two different outfits. While the girl can not be positively identified at this point, it is interesting to note that she does appear to be holding a cameraa, appearing to be taking selfies with Spider-Man as he saves them during the course of the scene. We’ll have to wait until July 7th to know for sure.
