You will believe a spider can fly. In a teaser for Spider-Man: Homecoming posted on the film’s Twitter account — the same screened at the recent Comic-Con Experience in Brazil — Peter Parker (Tom Holland) gets a visit from Tony Stark’s reliable man Happy (Jon Favreau) who has “a minor upgrade” from the billionaire industrialist.
“This is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,” Holland’s youthful Peter gasps. Indeed: The “minor upgrade” is Spider-Man’s new suit featuring the classic web wings which have no purpose in comics except to look cool. In the movie, it appears Spidey will be able to air glide akin to military base-jumping.
These 30 seconds are the first look at Jon Watts’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first solo Spider-Man film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Taking place after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Homecoming sees Peter step up as Spider-Man against villains like the Vulture (Michael Keaton). The trailer will premiere Thursday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Homecoming also marks the return of Favreau’s Happy Hogan, who’s been absent from the MCU since 2013’s Iron Man 3. And it’s like he hasn’t missed a day, deadpanning, “What the hell is that? What the hell are you wearing?” to ol’ Spidey. “Where’s the case? Didn’t you see the case?”
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released July 7, 2017.
