The First Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer Sees Spider-Man Team Up with Iron Man

The first full trailer for Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming has been released, and it shows the young web-slinger superhero (Tom Holland) taking advice from a fellow superhero: Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man.


After two middling Amazing Spider-Man movies starring the unfortunate Andrew Garfield, Marvel managed to make the masked wall-crawler feel fresh again, merely by introducing him into a more colourful and diverse universe of superheroes where Spidey is no longer required to beat up Flash Thompson, or grieve for Uncle Ben, every second movie.

Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, this movie sees Peter Parker try to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York City with fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man.

The trailer follows Spider-Man as he interrupts a bank robbery, perches on tall buildings, and takes life advice from Tony Stark.

"Don't do anything I would do. And definitely don't do anything I wouldn't do," Stark tells Parker. "There's a little gray area in there and that's where you operate."

The trailer ends with a split-second shot of Spider-Man swinging alongside a flying Iron Man, hinting that the Captain America: Civil War teammates fight evil together again.

To date, Spider-Man’s five-film run (not counting team-ups like Captain America: Civil War, otherwise Iron Man’s solo movies and team-ups account for nearly $6.5 billion) has reached a staggering $3.9 billion in global receipts, slightly ahead of Batman’s $3.7 billion seven-film cume (not counting Batman v Superman since it’s a team-up).

The average worldwide box office of a Spider-Man movie is more than $790 million per picture, the second-highest average for a live-action superhero solo series (Iron Man wins by a nose, with an average $808 million per film). The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was the lowest grossing, worst-reviewed, least audience-pleasing of his releases, but it still took nearly $710 million in receipts. And the top-grossing Spidey flick was 2007’s Spider-Man 3, the highest-grossing film that year, which crossed $890 million to become both the biggest superhero movie ever made and thirteenth-highest grossing movie in history at the time. None of those films existed in the modern MCU’s connected world of heroes.

Spider-Man: Homecoming opens on July 7th, 2017.
