It’s all starting to click into place.
With less than two months until we see Tom Holland make his first proper outing as Spider-Man in the hero’s very own movie, we’ve finally got a bit of context around where it fits into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Having already seen the high school Spider-Man in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker’s mission in Homecoming is to stop the bad guys from using weapons they’ve created from scraps salvaged during all of the Avengers’ various Earth-threatening attacks.
His main foe will be the Vulture, who is played by Michael Keaton in the forthcoming blockbuster.
We already know that Spider-Man will be a part of next year’s Avengers outing Infinity War, so it looks like this film will lead the hero – as well as Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man – nicely into the oncoming saga.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be in cinemas on 7 July.
