After a successful introduction in this summer's Captain America: Civil War, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Peter Parker (played by Tom Holland) is gearing up for his solo vehicle: Spider-Man: Homecoming. Set for release in July 2017, the film has just begun principal photography, with director Jon Watts leading an all-star cast that includes the likes of Holland, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, and Robert Downey, Jr. (among others). Fans have already been treated to the first batch of set photos, showcasing Holland and Zendaya.

The MCU Spider-Man is going to differentiate from what's come before by being considerably younger. Both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were at the tail end of their high school career when they first portrayed the character, while Holland is playing a Peter who is still in his mid-teens. Kevin Feige has said the approach is meant to emulate a classic John Hughes comedy, meaning a considerably amount of the film could be centered around Peter's academic life. Now, thanks to more leaked set photos, we know where exactly the young Mr. Parker will be attending school.

Coming from Just Jared, the images show Peter walking across some kind of athletics field, wearing a sweatshirt that says "Midtown Science and Technology School." In the comics, Parker went to Midtown High School, so this is a way of paying homage to the source material. From the sound of it, this particular institution is designed specifically for students with a substantial interest in science (or are some kind of prodigy), which Peter definitely is. It will be interesting to see if any of his classmates are as adept in the subject as he is.

Homecoming is starting to shoot just as James Gunn concludes principal photography on fellow 2017 MCU installment Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Both films saw production at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, and the schedules must have lined up fairly closely. Gunn took to Twitter to wish Holland and Watts the best of luck, illustrating the camaraderie shared between the Marvel Studios directors:
