See new Footage in this 22 MinuteSpider-Man: Homecoming Fan Guide

Marvel Studios has released one of the most extensive behind-the-scenes featurettes we’ve ever seen for Spider-Man: Homecoming, titled “A Fan’s Guide to Spider-Man: Homecoming.” You’ll see interviews with stars Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Zendaya and Michael Keaton, you’ll find out about the production process from director Jon Watts, and you’ll get a sense of how Homecoming fits into the larger MCU thanks to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. 

This featurette is brought you to by Disney XD, which skews towards a younger demographic, so, allow for the stars to ham it up a bit. What you get in return for that patience is new footage and a longer look at the supporting cast. We meet Tony Revolori’s bully Flash Thompson, and get a better sense of the crush Peter has forLiz Allan, played by Laura Harrier. Speaking of Peter’s relationships, there’s arguably none more important than the one he shares with Marisa Tomei’s Aunt May. 

Here's the film's official synopsis:

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

As for Spidey's mentor in Homecoming, you could do a whole lot worse than Tony Stark.

Spider-Man: Homecoming opens on July 7, 2017.
