Hawaiian actor Jacob Batalon shares details on Spider-Man: Homecoming while talking with a local news station.
“Ned Leeds. I play Peter Parker’s best friend in the film,” Batalon tells HKON2. “We are both in high school. We are about fifteen. It’s about Peter dealing with being a superhero and going through puberty. He still has to worry about homework. He still has to worry about his crush liking him while trying to save someone who’s probably in a burning building. He can’t tell anyone because he’s not the cool kid, so he is just stuck with this really cool life that he can’t tell anyone about.”
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” has a July 7, 2017 release directed by Jon Watts starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr.
