Here's What Marvel Showed Us from Spider-Man: Homecoming at SDCC
After taking a break from Hall H at last year's San Diego Comic Con, Marvel returned to the biggest stage in geek culture to prove that they're still the most entertaining show in town. After revealing a ton of details and footage from Doctor Strange, Marvel gave us our first look at what will likely be their biggest release of 2017. Spider-Man: Homecoming is still filming right now, so we didn't get to look at much in the way of action, but what we did see was enough to confirm to us that this is going to be a really, really, REALLY fun movie.

Here's a brief description of the footage we saw:

The clip opened with a montage of the yearbook photos of the MCU's biggest stars, all set to Joan Jett's Bad Reputation. We then cut to see Peter Parker (Tom Holland) sitting at his desk in class. Parker's not paying much attention to his teacher, focusing on watching a highlights reel of his role in the big Civil War airport battle on YouTube. Despite not paying any attention, Parker is still able to rattle off an expert answer to his teacher's complex question.

Each segment is then preceded by a title card for different 'classes' on Parker's schedule.

"Women's Studies" – Women's Studies sees Parker and his pal staring dreamily at a couple of girls in the school cantina, debating whether or not one particular girl is wearing a new top or not. "Maybe we should stop staring before it gets creepy," says Parker. Then we get a response from to an emo-looking girl, played by Zendaya, who quips "Too late, it's already creepy."

"Web Design" – Parker is in science class, but instead of working on the designated class, he's attempting to craft a new type of synthetic spiderweb.

The we cut to a scene where Parker gets a text and urgently says "I have to go,". Zendaya's character responds "Go where?" which is followed by a series of quick cut scenes that see Parker running through a corridor, climbing a wall, and finally swinging across the cityscape of New York. "Just kidding. I don't really care," says Zendaya's character.

The final shot of the footage confirms that Vulture will be the movie's key villain. Vulture, who looks almost identical to the concept art above, is only seen briefly as he swoops onto the screen before a hard cut.

The footage really was a lot of fun. It was light-hearted even by Spidey's high standards, and there was a definite 'Freaks and Geeks' feel to some of the characters. Most of the kids are grungy and disenfranchised, so it's going to be fun to see how that is married with the hi-tech nature of the villain and Parker's contraptions.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is released in theaters on July 7th 2017
