Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the first standalone Spidey movie from Marvel Studios, following a co-production deal with Sony Pictures. It stars Tom Holland as Peter, alongside Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Bokeem Woodbine, Tony Revolori, and Tyne Daly.

Last month, a teaser screened at San Diego Comic-Con confirmed the movie's main bad guy will be the Vulture. Although Michael Keaton is known to be playing a villanious role, it has not been announced if he will portray the Vulture.

A number of images have been released from the production over the past weeks, including Holland in costume, and on-set with co-star Zendaya. More recently, some images of Spider-Man's web-shooters popped up.

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
