New Delhi: If you liked Tom Holland as the new Spider-Man in last summer's Captain America: Civil War, then wait till you watch this teaser of his standalone film Spider-Man: Homecoming. Sony, the new owners of the franchise, shared a teaser with fans, and boy, it's mind blowing.

- Twitter was outraged when Tom Holland was cast as Spider-Man
- Spider-Man had a scene-stealing cameo in Captain America: Civil War
- Spider-Man: Homecoming releases in July next year
Marisa Tomei, who plays a sexed-up version of Spidey/Peter Parker's Aunt May, doesn't appear in the teaser but Jon Favreau does, as his character from the Iron Man films, Happy Hogan.
Without delay, watch the teaser of Spider-Man: Homecoming:
Spider-Man: Homecoming is set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, where Peter Parker is struggling to fit in with his batch-mates at his high school and simultaneously fight crime as his alter ego, Spider-Man. The cast includes Michael Keaton as the villain Vulture (a little bit of irony there, casting Batman as a baddie) and singer Zendaya as Peter's classmate Michelle.
Tom Holland, 20, has filmed most of the stunts himself. However, a body double was essential in places where he could not perform a stunt legally. "I did as many (of the stunts) as I could, but there are some things legally that I couldn't do. There were stunt doubles who were all very, very talented guys who really supported me throughout the process. Whenever there was a stunt that I didn't necessarily feel comfortable about, they would step in and show me how to do it, and coach me through the process," he told Variety Magazine.
Of the Spidey suit, Tom told Variety: "The suit's not the greatest thing but sometimes when it's uncomfortable, you just have to remind yourself of the long list of actors that would loved to be in that suit and you just go, 'I'm the luckiest kid alive'."
Tom Holland replaced Andrew Garfield as the new Spider-Man in what is the second reboot of the franchise and at the time of his casting, Twitter was not very pleased. The Internet was not happy that Spider-Man appears to have gotten younger with every change in actor, from Tobey Maguire to Tom. They said:

Tom turned a deaf ear to all the criticism and told Variety: "I deserve to be here and I'm going to give it my best." Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by Jon Watts releases in July, next year.
Wait, is it still only December?
