Ahead of the premiere today of the first trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have revealed a new photo of star Tom Holland from the franchise reboot.

The image arrives this morning in USA Today, where we learn a few details about the film, which picks up following Peter Parker’s recruitment by Tony Stark in “Captain America: Civil War.” Now the teenager must find a way to balance life as a sophomore in high school with his new career as a superhero.

“This is really a movie where Spider-Man’s not the finished article,” Holland said. “He really does learn and he makes massive mistakes. It’s nice to see a kid do that and then try to rectify those mistakes.”

The newspaper characterizes the film as “a coming-of-age story” that 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), which probably isn’t too far off from Marvel’s official synopsis.

We also learn that director Jon Watts’ film skips the oft-repeated backstory, and instead focuses on Peter trying to navigate life as a teenager — and as a teenage superhero. Along with crushes and angst, there’s also the threat of the Vulture, described as “an average Joe with criminal tendencies and a wicked wing suit.”

“The first time we see the Vulture is terrifying,” Holland said. “It’s like a horror movie: really scary, very intense and shocking.”

Opening July 7, 2017, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” also stars Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Jon Favreau and Marisa Tomei.
