Ahead of the premiere of the first trailer for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ tonight we’ve got a first look at the films 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.

Speaking in USA today star Tom Holland described his take on the character as “more a character piece about this kid who’s struggling to talk to girls and also struggling to save the city.”

The star also touched on how the film will skip over some of the backstory we’ve seen on film several times before. “This is really a movie where Spider-Man’s not the finished article,” Holland said. “He really does learn and he makes massive mistakes. It’s nice to see a kid do that and then try to rectify those mistakes.”

USA today also debuted the first official still from the film which you can see above. Check back later to see the first full trailer for the film. In the meantime here is a sneaky peek:
