If that ferry looked like an impossible problem for Spider-Man to solve…well, that’s because it is. Enter Iron Man and his fleet of tiny rockets to get the job done.

Seriously: there’s a lot more Iron Man in this movie than we were expecting. This isn’t a cameo – it looks like Tony Stark will be a key supporting player in the film’s actual plot.

Anyway, here is billionaire philanthropist superhero Tony Stark doing what a spider can’t and saving a ferry full of innocent people.

Iron Man giveth and taketh away. In the wake of Spider-Man getting a ferry split in half by a guy in a robot bird costume, Tony takes away all of the cool toys he gave Peter Parker until he can grow up just a bit. This should be familiar to anyone who was ever a teenager. This is cool for a few reasons: it works as a metaphor for being grounded (which is great for a high school movie), it allows us to see more of Peter’s nifty homemade costume, and it forces Spider-Man to confront his enemies without the aid of gadgets supplied by a billionaire. After all, Spidey has to be more than another Stark project…

Here’s one of our only glimpses of Marisa Tomei’s Aunt May, who had a cameo in Civil War and looks to have a much larger role in this movie. While some people have joked about the “reverse Benjamin Button-ing” of May over the years, from an old maid in Sam Raimi’s movies to Maria freakin’ Tomei, it does make sense that a teenager’s aunt would be roughly same age as his late mother, not his grandmother.

This is another angle from the scene we saw earlier and now we know who Adrian Toomes (wearing that great jacket) is talking to: Spider-Man. Note that Spidey is wearing his homemade costume, so it looks like he’s decided to take the fight straight to the Vulture after having his gear taken away by Tony Stark.

To further reinforce the “dark Tony Stark” imagery, here’s Toomes standing in front of his Vulture suit, which appears to be capable of coming when called.

We already saw glimpses of Spider-Man’s battle with Shocker in the previous trailer, but this image of him getting blown through a school bus is new. Without his Stark-approved gear, even a C-list baddie like Shocker looks to offer a serious challenge.

Here’s our best look yet at Spider-Man’s homemade costume and I don’t know about you people, but I’m in love. This looks exactly like the kind of thing a high school kid would be able to cook up on a shoestring budget. What’s not clear is whether or not he’ll get his proper suit back for the grand finale or if he’ll dress like this til the end.

Since Vulture’s powers aren’t that exciting on their own (he’s just a guy who can fly), Homecoming looks like it’ll up the ante by just making Toomes completely ruthless. Considering Spider-Man’s state of dress here, this scene may take place shortly after their conversation seen above…and we can add the Vulture to the list of “people who know Spider-Man’s identity.”

This is just a great shot (and I wonder if this is the aftermath the plane sequence, seen later in the trailer). Peter Parker really seems to get roughed up in this movie…which makes this all a very appropriate high school metaphor.

That’s Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Peter’s classmate and potential love interest. There’s so sign of Mary Jane Watson in this movie (unless that’s who Zendaya is actually playing). Anyway, they appear to be a (homecoming?) dance. So there you go.
