You can watch the 10-minute "Spider-Man: Homecoming" opening right here for free
Over the summer, Marvel teamed up with Sony Pictures to formally induct Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon with his own standalone film, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Skipping the radioactive spider incident and the murder of Uncle Ben, Homecoming isn’t an origin story in the traditional sense. Rather, it follows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as he attempts to prove his worth as an Avenger.
In honor of Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s release on digital, Sony has released the first 10 minutes:
The first half of the clip follows our villain, Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton), as his salvage company attempts to clean up the site of the Battle of New York (from The Avengers) — only to be interrupted by the newly established Department of Damage Control, a joint operation between Stark Industries and the United States government. It’s pretty clear that Toomes resents Stark and the Avengers and his salvage company quickly becomes an illegal Chitauri-fueled arms dealer. And thus, Vulture is born.
The second half of the clip is familiar to anyone who has seen Captain America: Civil War.
Spider-Man made a quick cameo on behalf of Team Iron Man, swooping in with a cool snag of Captain America’s shield. But Homecoming gives us a behind-the-scenes look at Peter’s experience during Civil War and it’s clear that the kid has zero chill. Plus, we get to see Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) budding mentorship of the teen. It’s adorable.
In addition to Downey Jr., Keaton, and Holland, the film also stars Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Jacob Batalon, Donald Glover, and Marisa Tomei.
Spiderman: Homecoming is currently available via digital, and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 17th.
