Wasn't Spider-Man the coolest of all the superheroes in Anthony Russo and Joe Russo's 2016 ensemble Captain America: Civil War? Well, the coolest of em all is all set to dominate the screen space in a spin off from the film, titled Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Tom Holland did a splendid job as the uber cool spidey in Captain America: Civil War. When Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr, approached him in the film to join forces with his team, Holland looked as surprised as excited. His action sequences suggested that he may have rubbed off some charm and self-assured cockiness from Iron Man. Also, being the youngest of the lot, his act provided the much-needed comic relief in a film filled with high-octane action sequences.

Now, as he gears up for a standalone film, the makers unveiled the first look of the film which showcased Holland in classic Spider-Man style. Glued to a high-rise New York building, Spider-Man looks below to scan his city which speaks volumes of what a superhero feels for his city. New into the business of saving the world, Spider-Man seems to be gradually developing the love towards and the urge to protect his city, a similar bond that Batman shares with Gotham and Superman shares with Metropolis.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will take the story forward from Captain America: Civil War. Having been initiated into superhero-ism, Holland's character of Peter Parker will be seen balancing his life as a college student in Queens, New York and battling the baddies in the capacity of Spider-Man in the film. He will also be seen locking horns with a formidable antagonist in The Vulture.

Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Holland, Downey Jr, Michael Keaton, Tony Revolori, Donald Glover and Zendaya. It will be directed by Jon Watts and is slated to release on 7 July.
