The moment Spider-Man fans have been anticipating since word broke the webbed hero was coming home to Marvel Studios finally arrived. Well, again.

We have already seen the newest version of Spider-Man slinging his way into action during Captain America: Civil War, but now we get a chance to see Spidey in his brand new film coming next summer, Spider-Man: Homecoming. The first full trailer for the upcoming film continuing the Marvel Cinematic Universe debuted Thursday night during Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The fun gets started right off the bat with the young Spider-Man crashing a bank robbery by thieves dressed in cheap Halloween masks of The Avengers. Spidey, having already gotten to know The Avengers with some first-hand experience, spots the fakes right away. He does so with his signature sense of humor and young amazement at his own abilities.

Soon enough, an old, familiar mentor returns to provide guidance. As has long been reported, Robert Downey Jr. has a seemingly prominent role in the film, as his Tony Stark and Iron Man are there to provide words of wisdom to Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and Spider-Man, with our old pal Happy Hogan (played by Jon Favreau) standing in the background.

We also got our first look at Spider-Man’s nemesis in the film, The Vulture, played by Michael Keaton, who looks to be somebody you don’t want to mess with. We are also treated to a few other characters who will surely be of some importance in the film, which looks to play like a high school movie about fitting in and, most likely, some high school romance.


You have to love the closing shot with Spider-Man and Iron Man flying through the city. How much of Iron Man is really in this movie? That remains to be seen. During the preview, we hear Stark say to Parker not to worry about the flying man because they have people to take care of it. Could we see Iron Man stepping in to do some battle, or is he there merely to provide some training? Perhaps we’ll see more in a future trailer, because there will most certainly be another trailer in the future.

UPDATE: Marvel also released an international trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, which has some different footage that might interest fans. It’s interesting to see how this one sells the action more than the domestic trailer, which really plays up the high school aspects of the story.

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
