After all these years, you’re still a punk.
Another ’80s movie tribute appears in Homecoming, this time arranged by Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige! Peter meets a hotdog vendor who asks him to do a flip in one of the early scenes. The merchant and the unkempt, boombox-carrying person next to him applaud when he does. The same actor who played the “Punk on the bus” Kirk and Spock encountered in 1986’s Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home plays “Punk on street.” After meeting Feige, who is supposedly a great Trek buff, Kirk Thatcher landed the Homecoming appearance and expressed his hope for a long run of “Punk on…” cameos to fund an early retirement.
