It's the moment we've all been waiting for since Peter Parker/ Spider-Man reappeared on our screens in "Captain America: Civil War": a look at the wall-crawlers newest solo film, the first one put out by Marvel Studios since their deal with Sony Pictures almost two years ago. And, man, did this trailer deliver.
The first trailer for "Spider-Man: Homecoming" delivers on all fronts. We get a good look at Spidey in action (including his trademark jokes), a peek at how his life as Peter Parker: High School Student will be, a pretty good idea of how Tony Stark will be utilized in the film and a look at Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes/ The Vulture.
One thing that definitely sticks out in this trailer is how focused the movie will be on the high school aspect of the character, something that definitely sets him apart from the rest of the heroes in the MCU. Peter is seen with his best friend drooling over Liz Allen, opening his locker, goofing off in science class watching footage of himself fighting with The Avengers and other typical things that the character has traditionally dealt with in his early years in comics as well as the entire run of the character in "Ultimate Spider-Man."
As for Tony, we see the lead Avenger being a mentor to Peter, telling him to keep his head down and not deal with too much because he still isn't ready even though he wants to be a big hero, much to Peter's frustration.
Interestingly enough, Peter's best friend, Ned Leeds, seems to be based off a character associated with Miles Morales's Spider-Man, Ganke. It will be interesting to see if this is the case.
Adrian Toomes/Vulture is at an all time best in this trailer, looking better than in any iteration before and seeming to be quite menacing. Keaton's delivery of the line "...I will kill you and everybody you love" is stone cold.
The trailer's penultimate shot hearkens back to "Spider-Man 2," with Spidey holding a ship together with his webs much in the way he stopped a runaway train in that previous film before cutting to the title card and then to a shot of Spider-Man and Iron Man swooping through the city.
July 7th suddenly can't come soon enough. Based on this trailer, we're probably going to have something pretty special on our hands, perhaps even the best Spider-Man film to date. Check the trailer out below (like you haven't seen it fifty times already) and judge for yourself.
