After Spider-Man made the jump to the MCU in “Captain America: Civil War,” fans and audiences alike were eager to see the rest of Peter Parker’s universe explored in this new setting. With a rich and vibrant history, there are many people, places, and ideas that have come to define the Spider-Man mythos. “Civil War” and the trailers for this summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” have shown Aunt May, Peter’s relationship with Iron Man, and his high school classmates. Yet there remains a certain something we haven’t seen or heard mention of: the Daily Bugle.
Since his earliest days in the ’60s, the Daily Bugle has been Peter Parker’s central place of work and it’s the place he forms some of his key life relationships. While we haven’t heard word about whether The Bugle, which houses the ever popular editor J. Jonah Jameson, will be included in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” it looks as though the film will at least tease the newspaper’s existence.
Over on Twitter, Tom Holland Source was able to get some screen grabs of new footage. The footage showcased a Daily Bugle newspaper reporting on an attack of sorts on the Washington Monument and a cover-up surrounding the disaster — which seems pretty true to form of anything published by the sensationalist Bugle.

Neither Sony nor Marvel have confirmed the presence of the Daily Bugle, but the image of the newspaper seems to do just that.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” follows the events of “Captain America: Civil War.” The film, described as “a coming-of-age story,” finds Peter attending his high school for gifted kids, trying to impress his new benefactor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and also dealing with a pesky arch enemy, the Vulture (Michael Keaton).
Directed by Jon Watts (“Clown”), written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (“Vacation”) and starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., Zendaya, Donald Glover and many, many others, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
