Happy Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer Day! The day a trailer drops for highly anticipated films has become almost exciting as the actual day of release.

The tagline “Does the suit make the man?” refers to an important plot point shown in the trailer. Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) is given a fancy new high-tech spidey suit from Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), but appears to lose his trust and the suit. Spider-Man must find redemption, while also battling Vulture (Michael Keaton) and his villainous crew.

This trailer is very action-heavy and focuses on Tony Stark, who definitely has a bigger role than just a cameo. Stark’s character has been instrumental in creating and building the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe over the last decade.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the result of lengthy deliberations between Marvel and Sony, whom they had previously sold the film rights to. Marvel had been gunning to get Spider-Man back to appear in their own Marvel Studio films for years. Spider-Man’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War was the first fruit of that labor. Spider-Man: Homecoming is the first full movie featuring Spider-Man within the MCU.

With five films and two reboots within the last 15 years, this version of Spider-Man will differentiate itself by portraying a younger hero, and not retelling his origin story yet again. Peter Parker is already Spider-Man (as shown in Captain America: Civil War) but he’s depicted as a 16-year old still firmly in high school and learning about being a hero. Actor Tom Holland is by far the youngest to portray the superhero at age 21.

Spider-Man: Homecoming releases on July 7.
