Official Synopsis & Cast List For SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING; Plus Amazing Footage Description

No one steals a show quite like your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and he was back at it last night when Tom Holland paid a visit to Hall H to debut the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming!

Yesterday was a long, long day, but San Diego Comic-Con certainly saved the best for last with the return of Marvel Studios. The illustrious studio started off the night by introducing the cast of Black Panther and confirming the presence of Surtur in Thor: Ragnarok, then followed that up with a brand new trailer for their fall release Doctor Strange, moved ahead into Spider-Man: Homecoming, and capped off the night with the confirmation of Kurt Russell's character in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the long-awaited introduction of Academy Award-winner Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.

Whew, now, that's a lot to digest. 

While Captain Marvel & Baby Groot managed to win over the hearts of Hall H, nothing got everyone buzzing quite like the first footage from the highly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming, which made a surprise appearance after only recently kicking off production. Director Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland & Zendaya were on hand to premiere the exclusive footage and we have a fairly thorough description, courtesy of Birth.Movies.Death.

Watts opened the Spidey segment by describing the film as "a straight-up high school movie" and the amazing footage that followed definitely fit the bill with many attendees saying that it had a very John Hughes-vibe and comparing it favorably to the critically acclaimed television series Freaks and Geeks. The footage opens with an homage to the aforementioned series with the Joan Jett song "Bad Reputation" playing over a batch of yearbook photos featuring our Marvel heroes before it transitions into a montage of a typical day at Midtown High for Peter Parker and let's just say, it's not as spectacular as you'd expect.

We then catch a glimpse of Peter in math class checking out a YouTube video of his epic fight against Giant-Man in Captain America: Civil War. During this sequence, the teacher asks the class a very complicated question, which Tony Revolori's character quickly answers, but gets incorrect. The teacher shifts their attention to good ol' Mr. Parker, who despite not paying attention, gives the right answer with relative ease, which draws the ire of Revolori's character. While not explicitly stated here, it's being said by multiple sources that Revolori is playing Flash Thompson. 

In the next sneak peek scene, we see Peter and his friend, played Jacob Batalon, partaking in some typical high school activity: checking out girls as they walk by them in the hall. "We have to stop this before it gets creepy," says Peter before Zendaya's character walks into frame chiming: "Too late." The footage then quickly shifts into a chemistry lab where Peter is secretly hard-at-work on his web fluid formula instead of his school work.

The final minute has a study group scene where Peter gets a text and has to leave immediately. As he's leaving, Zendaya's character asks "Where are you always disappearing to, Parker?" and while, he's struggling to find a response, she follows-up with a brutal "Just kidding, I don't care what you do." The stakes are then raised as we see a badass montage of Spidey in action - climbing walls, fighting bad guys, running on vehicles - and the final reveal is of course the film's villain, the Vulture, who we see zooming down a tube in his battle-ready armor.

We caught a great look at Spidey vs. the Vulture in some amazing concept art last night, check it out in full hi-resolution HERE.

We also received the official synopsis, which you can view below, and the principal cast list that includes Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr.
