Ever since Tom Holland debuted the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, I've been anxiously awaiting Spider-Man: Homecoming, the joint Marvel Studios / Sony Pictures Spider-Man film that's due out on July 7, 2017. After a brief teaser showing Spider-Man getting a special gift from Tony Stark in the form of some new equipment dropped, the Marvel stanboys (present company included) have been anxiously awaiting the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is now here thanks to Jimmy Kimmel.
After the release of the first, mask-less official still image of Holland as Spider-Man, anticipation has reached a fever pitch, and this quick look at the new Spider-Man we're getting hit with definitely delivered on what fans have been waiting for. There's big man talk from Tony Stark to Peter Parker.
Some low-level crime fighting.
There will be a homecoming dance. That's also Peter's love interest, Liz, waving hello.
Some responsible usage of some great power.
If you blinked, you missed Donald Glover, who appears to be cool with The Tinkerer?
A seriously evil bad guy meet-up.
And even some scaling of national monuments.
There's even an international trailer, which you should definitely watch if you're trying to see a bit more from this film. Collider also has a gang of higher-quality images from the trailer.
If you want to know more, USA Today ran a full feature on what you can expect from the film. Spider-Man: Homecoming co-producer Eric Hauserman Carroll says that Peter Parker “literally just went to Europe with the coolest clique of them all. And now he’s back with the academic decathlon and the mathletes and going, ‘What am I doing here?’” That confirms that instead of another back story, we're picking up right where we left Peter in Civil War: a young kid with extraordinary gifts trying to figure out where he is in the world.
Tom Holland breaks it down even better: “This is really a movie where Spider-Man’s not the finished article. He really does learn and he makes massive mistakes. It’s nice to see a kid do that and then try to rectify those mistakes." He also says that the first time we see Michael Keaton's Vulture, it's "very intense and shocking," likening it to "a horror movie."
Spider-Man: Homecoming is directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car) and stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, and more (including Robert Downey, Jr. reprising his role as Tony Stark / Iron Man), and will hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
