Watch: The ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Trailer

The Spider-Man franchise has gone through so many iterations that one wonders what’s left to add to the character. But the folks at Marvel are going to give it a go anyway! For one thing, the previous Spider-Man films were in the hands of Sony, but thanks to some wheeling and dealing, both Sony and Marvel Studios have co-control of the character. We got a glimpse at the new MCU Spidey in Captain America: Civil War, with Tom Holland stepping into the webslingers costume. And you know what — he was great. Holland’s jokey, youthful Spidey was one of the best elements of that film, so perhaps Marvel can keep that momentum going with Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first stand-alone MCU Spider-Man film. “Homecoming begins with Peter wrestling with a return to his normal life in Queens after being recruited by Stark and surviving his first huge superhero battle,” according to an article in USA Today. “‘He literally just went to Europe with the coolest clique of them all,’ says co-producer Eric Hauserman Carroll. ‘And now he’s back with the academic decathlon and the mathletes and going, ‘What am I doing here?’’

In addition to Holland, Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Michael Keaton as the villain The Vulture, Zendaya as a mysterious character who is likely Mary Jane, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr., as Sherlock Holmes Iron Man/Tony Stark. Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 7th, 2017. Watch the first trailer below.
