What’s in the case? WHAT IS IN THE CASE?
Ahead of the release of its full trailer on Jimmy Kimmel’s US talk show tonight, Spider-Man: Homecoming, starring young Brit actor Tom Holland, has dropped this 17-second teaser overnight, with the word ‘teaser’ being a more than accurate description of the snippet.
It appears that Spidey has been given a special case from Tony Stark/Iron Man, which contains “a minor upgrade” to the web slinger’s suit. And that upgrade? Well, sure looks like it’s a cool one. Sure looks like he’s been given the power of flight.
Okay, it’s really the power of gliding/falling really stylishly. But as all you serious Marvelheads will be quick to point out, Spider-Man’s no stranger to a set of wings. At least, not the comic version. Gliding armpit web things have been a part of his suit for quite some time – dating back to his first 1962 appearance, in fact. Check them out in his first cover:
Stay tuned for the full-length trailer real soon, when more should be revealed.
Spider-Man Homecoming is released 7 July
