The first posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming have been released, one depicting the Marvel wall crawler relaxing on the Queens side of the East River with a rather grand view of the New York City skyline and the other climbing Avengers Tower.
This laid back first look at Tom Holland’s teenage Spider-Man was unveiled on the film’s Twitter account and shows him taking five wearing his high school jacket and headphones. The note on the accompanied tweet says: “Homework can wait. The city can’t.”

As far as New York City geography goes, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers Tower (the former Stark Tower) is where the Met Life Building stands in real life and in very close proximity to Grand Central Station. With Robert Downey Jr. appearing as Tony Stark, it’s not surprising to see the HQ of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the first poster to reference this film as the first Spider-Man adventure taking place directly in the MCU.
The second one-sheet offers a view looking towards downtown NYC from Avengers Tower, showing Spidey clinging to the building’s “A” logo.
Here is the film’s official synopsis:
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Directed by Jon Watts, the film also stars Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Bokeem Woodbine, Jon Faverau, Logan Marshall-Green, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Abraham Attah, Martin Starr, Tony Revolori, Michael Barbieri, and Angourie Rice.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7th.
