In a presentation at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts and star Tom Holland took the stage to give those in attendance the first look at the Marvel’s newest reboot, which Watts called a “straight up high school movie.”
In a report from The Hollywood Reporter, the footage shown focused on Peter Parker’s life as a high school teen in a world where everybody idolizes the Avengers. Set to “Bad Repuatation” by Joan Jett, the clip showed Parker trying to get out of class early to get out into the city and fight crime.
One of the most interesting aspects of this reboot Spider-Man world will be the inclusion of other established Marvel heroes; specifically that of Tony Stark. As seen in Captain America: Civil War a few months ago, Stark takes on Peter as a protege of sorts, and supports his heroic aspirations. In Civil War, that amounted to hitting on his aunt and making him a fancy suit, but in Homecoming, apparently Stark will make a return on follow-up on his new friendship.
The report didn’t have much else to say about what was shown, other than Watts said that his appearance at Comic-Con was actually interrupting Homecoming’s production, which apparently only started last month. Spider-Man: Homecoming is hitting theaters on July 7, 2017.
