As promised by yesterday's teaser promising a brand new "Spider-Man: Homecoming" trailer, Marvel and Sony delivered the real deal this morning, giving us an exciting new look at Spidey's gadgets, a terrifying view of the Vulture, and a better understanding of Tony Stark's role as a mentor to the young Peter Parker. However, Iron Man isn't the only Avenger to make an appearance, as we also get a brief cameo from Captain America.
At approximately the 37 second mark, we see none other than Chris Evans' Steve Rogers, suited up to promote Captain America's Fitness Challenge in a video being shown to a gym full of students. Among them are Tom Holland's Peter Parker and Jacob Batalon's Ned Leeds. Ned, who is apparently aware of his friend's secret at this point, eagerly asks if Peter knows Cap, to which Peter nonchalantly replies, "I stole his shield."
It's not much, but once again, this brief moment manages to highlight Marvel's attention to detail when it comes to reinforcing the foundation of its massive shared universe.
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.
