The very first, action-packed trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday, December 8, and it got our spidey senses tingling with excitement.
In the two-minute clip, the web-slinger, played by Tom Holland, tries to fight bad guys (Michael Keaton plays the villain Vulture) while also dealing with high school drama, classes and girls as Peter Parker. Zendaya makes a cameo as a snarky high school classmate, who calls Parker and his friend Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) “losers.”
Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) also appears in the trailer to give Parker some advice. “So to become an Avenger, are there, like, trials or an interview?” Parker asks, to which Iron Man responds, “Just don’t do anything I would do. And definitely don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. There’s a little gray area in there, and that’s where you operate.”
Sony Pictures Chairman Tom Rothman explained the meaning behind the title of the standalone film during CinemaCon in April. “It’s obviously a high school reference and shows Peter Parker’s enduring conflict — saving the world and getting your homework done,” he said. It’s also a subtle nod to Spider-Man’s return to the Marvel universe due to Sony’s deal to share the character.
Watch the trailer above, and catch Spider-Man: Homecoming when it swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
