The New Spider-Man Trailer Is What You'd Expect from the Phrase 'Spider-Man Trailer'

Spidey scales some famous buildings, he breaks up some robberies, he pines after some girl at school. You'll like it, if you like that sort of thing.

Earlier this year, the people who freak out about superheroes freaked out about the appearance of a non-Tobey Maguire, non-Andrew Garfield Spider-Man in the latest Captain America movie. The new Spidey was played by Tom Holland and had some fancy Deadpool eyes, so he could really emote when he was dishing out pithy lines or whatever.

Now, Holland's new Spider-Man has his own solo movie on its way, called Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the first official trailer just dropped. It hits all the standard marks that you'd expect from a web-slinger movie—Spidey scales some famous buildings, he breaks up some robberies, he pines after some girl at school, and so on.

From the trailer, Homecoming seems to put more emphasis on Peter Parker's life as a nerdy-ass high schooler than the previous movies—Tobey Maguire's lunch tray scene notwithstanding. It's also a Marvel movie in 2017, so the Avengers obviously have a role in things—even Tony Stark pops in during the trailer to give Peter Parker a little advice about being a hero.

Michael Keaton also makes an appearance as Vulture, Spidey's main foe this time around, like some bizarro evil Birdman. Give the trailer a watch above and catch the whole thing July 7 of next year.
