Fans are eagerly awaiting the first big solo outing for everyone’s favorite web-slinger under the Marvel Studios banner, and thanks to Marvel Japan, a brand new image from “Spider-Man: Homecoming” has surfaced online, giving fans a new look at Spidey in his usual stomping grounds.

The image, which appeared via Marvel Japan’s Twitter feed, looks to be an advertisement for one of the new “Spider-Man: Homecoming” Funko Pop! figures that debuted at last month’s New York Toy Fair, which can be seen on the right-hand side of the image. On the left, though, is Spidey, himself, casually swinging around the Big Apple, with the New York City skyline glimmering off in the distance.
This figure is just the latest in a massive slate of merchandise for the upcoming film, which already includes a new line of toys from Hasbro, Marvel Legends figures, and a variety of fun, dynamic new LEGO sets. For the bigger spenders, there’s even a gorgeous 1/6 scale action figure from Hot Toys set to debut later this year.
Directed by Jon Watts (“Cop Car,” “Clown”), “Spider-Man: Homecoming” picks up after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” as Tom Holland’s Peter Parker attempts to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York, with fighting crime as Spider-Man.
Swinging into theaters July 7, the film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr.
