Professional Geek and Charmer. I mean c'mon, look at that hat and youthful smile

The for dropped last week and it, for the most part, satisfied anyone who was having doubts about the film.

However, this wouldn't be the first time that fans have been fooled by a good trailer. Remember how dramatic and epic the trailer was? Remember how dark and intriguing the trailer?

While both of those films were technically successes, they are still wildly considered as disappointments to the geek community. So how can Spider-Man: Homecoming still disappoint? Let's start with:

1. Spider-Man fatigue

No matter how excited you might be for the new upcoming film, we can't forget that this will be the sixth movie in 15 years starring the famed wall-crawler. Seventh movie if you count . That's seven movies, with three different actors and three different origin stories.

The two previous Spider-Man franchises, starring Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, didn't even have conclusions. It's not too far-fetched to think that some people aren't that excited to see Sony try their hand at these movies for a third time. Sure, Marvel has a lot of say in what goes on in the film and they picked a stellar actor to portray the character.

However, with Sony's meathooks still in the franchise, we're starting to see some recurring problems that were in previous Spider-Man movies. One of those problems being...

2. Too many villains

If there is anything we can take from the previous Spider-Man movies, it's that the worst movies usually tried to tackle more than one villain. Spider-Man: Homecoming is no exception unfortunately.

Not only is Michael Keaton set to play Adrian Toomes, the Vulture, but Bookeem Woodbine was also cast as Herman Shultz, a.k.a the Shocker and Michael Chernus was cast as the Tinkerer. But that's not all, Michael Mando was cast a few months ago and is currently rumored to playing as Cleatus Kassidy, a.k.a Carnage.

Even if that Carnage rumor ends up falling through the cracks, that's still introducing and juggling three villains in Spider-Man's first MCU film. Remember how well three villains worked in Amazing Spider-Man 2 when we got 15 minutes of screen time with the disappointing Green Goblin and underwhelming Rhino.

Or in Spider-Man 3 when they reduced screen time from the fan favorite Venom to see more of the love triangle between Peter, Harry and Mary-Jane. If there is anything you should be worried about for this movie, it's the over-saturated casting.

3. This could break Marvel's streak

Whether we like it or not, Marvel has to make a bad movie. Not just a bad movie, a universally despised film that will make all Marvel fans cringe with anger. Marvel has had one hell of a streak in the past eight years but that is most likely going to end soon.

We thought it was going to be the but that turned out to be a big hit. We thought it was going to be Guardians of the Galaxy but that turned out to be a big hit as well. Then we thought it was going to be Age of Ultron, then Ant-Man and so on. Even though films like Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, Incredible Hulk, and Age of Ultron aren't loved by Marvel fans, it wouldn't be fair to call those bad movies. There is something to like in each of those films.

No matter what, it seems that Marvel can only put out hit movie after hit movie, but how long can that last. Even Scott Derrickson, director of Doctor Strange, publicly said that he was very nervous about being the director who broke Marvel's winning streak.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be Marvel's 15th film in the franchise. While that is impressive, we can't forget that the longer the streak goes on, the closer we are to that one big Marvel bomb.

Do you think it's possible Spider-Man: Homecoming will be Marvel's first bomb?
