Sony releases a new motion poster for Spider-Man: Homecoming featuring Tom Holland as Peter Parker. Although the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire trilogy and Andrew Garfield's The Amazing Spider-Man films depicted a slightly older web-slinger, Sony and Marvel Studios' incarnation will be focused on the classic young student-with-a-secret that was so beloved of comic book fans in the early days.
The promo material for the forthcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming continues to come as thick and fast as Spidey's own webbing. Most recently, new images from a Japanese magazine were showcased, and the score was teased by composer Michael Giacchino.
Now, the UK Twitter account for Sony Pictures has released a neat motion poster for the latest version of the wall-crawler. It shows Peter Parker in his "civilian" clothes brandishing two spray-cans, with the familiar shades of red and blue shooting from the nozzles. Behind him on a water-tower is a freshly painted Spider-emblem, albeit in slightly crude form. Take a look:

It doesn't give any further details about the film or plot, of course. But it's a fun little image that seems to reinforce the younger version of Peter Parker as the geeky fun-loving teenager that we was introduced to in Captain America: Civil War. The theme of Spider-Graffiti was something that was briefly used in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man, where the final scene showed Garfield using the same method to "mark his territory."
Previous trailers have already revealed the way in which Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) is mentoring the young hero and aiding him with various gadgets: drones, tracking devices, and enhanced web-shooters amongst them. It seems unlikely that these spray cans are from Stark Industries - or maybe they are...
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming will follow Parker as he tries to balance his life in Queens with his crime-fighting antics in a suit. The appearance of super-enhanced criminal Vulture (Michael Keaton), will put his skills and his relationship with Stark under immense pressure. Also starring in the movie is Zendaya as Michelle, one of Peter’s classmates; Jacob Batalon as Peter’s best friend, Ned; Marisa Tomei as Aunt May; and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan.
The critical and cinema-goer's reaction to 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stopped that version of the franchise in its tracks. But with the positive reaction to Holland's interpretation in Civil War and the fact that the character is definitely a big part of Avengers: Infinity War, things are looking up for Peter Parker and his friends. We'll keep you up to date with any further information and promos for the film.
