Peter Parker gets a new suit in first ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ footage

Spider-Man’s debut in Marvel’s cinematic universe already took place in this year’s Captain America: Civil War, but his upcoming solo feature promises to make the webslinger’s role a bit more prominent — and he’ll apparently get a costume makeover, too.

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have released the first, official footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming to tease the upcoming debut of the film’s first trailer, and the new footage not only features a familiar face from Marvel’s movie-verse, but a fresh new look for everyone’s favorite friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.

The full trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming will debut during Thursday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, but the brief preview offered up by Sony and Marvel (who are partnering on the project) has star Tom Holland’s iteration of Peter Parker receiving a special gift from Iron Man himself, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). The footage unfolds via Peter’s perspective, and although Downey isn’t seen in the clip, his good friend and assistant “Happy” Hogan (as played by Jon Favreau) is shown reminding Peter that Tony left him something on a table that he might want to check out.

The contents of the package are revealed shortly thereafter when Spider-Man is seen perched at the top of a tower, only to leap backwards over a nearby helicopter that’s hovering nearby, extending his arms and showing off the suit’s under-arm webbing.

Longtime fans of Spider-Man will likely be ecstatic about the makeover in Spider-Man’s suit, as the under-arm webbing was a staple of Spidey’s original costume in Marvel’s comics. The webbing was removed in later incarnations of Peter’s superhero suit, but has occasionally made appearances in variations of the costume over the years.

Directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car), Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Michael Keaton as The Vulture, Zendaya as a character named Michelle, Logan Marshall-Green as an unidentified villain, and Kenneth Choi as the principal of Peter’s school. Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Angourie Rice, Jacob Batalon, Tyne Daly, and Bokeem Woodbine also play supporting roles in the film.

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters July 7, 2017.
