Being a high school student is tough. Navigating book reports, chem lab, pop quizzes, and crushes isn’t easy to balance.
But what if you have to save New York City, too?
That’s what Peter Parker (Tom Holland) has to deal with as he grows into his new role as the “friendly neighborhood Spider-Man” following his appearance in Captain America: Civil War. Spidey was recruited by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) to give Iron Man and company an assist as they battled their fellow superheroes, but now in Spider-Man: Homecoming, he’s feeling a bit left out.
Now going solo, Parker has an “internship” with Stark and a brand new, super-advanced suit via his pal Iron Man, and plenty of bad guys to deal with in the new trailer for the film:
The new international trailer shows off a bit more of the film’s story, including how Michael Keaton’s Vulture villain is collecting alien technology to make weapons for his criminal enterprise:
Holland perfectly captures the youthful exuberance of Spider-Man, and just how fun and exciting it can be to have superpowers while still in high school. Keaton looks menacing as “The Vulture,” while Iron Man makes his presence felt by flying through the skies with Spidey swinging alongside him.
After the knock-down, drag-out fight between Iron Man and Captain America in Civil War, it looks like the Marvel Cinematic Universe is ready for some fun.
Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by Jon Watts and starring Holland, Keaton, Donald Glover, Marisa Tomei, and Downey Jr., hits theaters July 7.
