Today has been a bluster of news related to comic book movies, but one of the most anticipated projects from Marvel Studios is definitely Spider-Man: Homecoming; the film will continue the story of Tom Holland‘s take on the world’s most famous wall-crawler (after his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War). Today, in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, more details (some of which have been long rumored) about the film have finally come to light, and and the hype for Spider-Man is absolutely more real than ever.
Tom Holland came on the stage to introduce the new footage of the movie. Because Marvel has not publicly released the footage outside of the panel, we’re going to recap it. The footage was described by those in attendance as starting off showing a high school while Bad Reputation plays. The words “Every story” come on the screen while showing images of Tony Stark (Iron Man) and James Rhodes (War Machine) in the high school. The words “Every journey has a beginning” come on the screen, then Peter is shown walking through the school while a ‘homecoming’ banner is put up.
The time, 9:30 am is shown, and Peter heads into science class. Peter is watching a video of himself defeating Scott Lang (as Giant Man, from Civil War). Flash Thompson shows up as well as an unknown character played by actor Zendaya. While in his Chemistry class, Peter secretly works on his spider-webbing. While the girl played by Zendaya looks on at Peter crushingly, another boy tries to figure out what Peter is hiding (his web fluid). There’s a jump cut of Peter running down a hallway, zipping up his hoodie over his Spider-Man costume.

He climbs over a wall, and then another shot of Michael Keaton as the Vulture (confirming long time rumors) coming down a tube with insanely cool armor.
The film, which is being directed by Jon Watts, is still being kept under tight wraps by Marvel, but it’s nice to know that even now it’s shaping up to fan’s longtime expectations.
