Sony Pictures has released the first 10 minutes of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which comes just after it beat out Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as the biggest superhero movie of the year at the worldwide box office ($874.4 million). While Wonder Woman's $411.7 million still has Spider-Man: Homecoming beat domestically ($331.9 million), it's still been an impressive run for the new web-slinger, with Tom Holland becoming the third actor to take over the role in the past 15 years. If you still haven't gotten around to seeing the movie yet, these first 10 minutes not only set up the journey of the villainous Adrian Toomes, but also takes fans back to the events of Captain America: Civil War, from a much different perspective.
This video debuted on Sony Pictures Entertainment YouTube today, just one day before Spider-Man: Homecoming will be available on Digital HD, which opens with Adrian Toomes and his salvage crew starting to clean up after the Battle of New York in The Avengers. After an impromptu visit from several government officials, he's told that all Avengers-related clean-up missions will now be under the jurisdiction of a new government-controlled branch called Damage Control, which Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) himself is overseeing. Instead of handing in all of the alien technology to Damage Control, Toomes decides to keep it all, and eight years later, he has built a thriving and illegal business.
The first 10 minutes also fills in some of the gaps between two key scenes in Captain America: Civil War. We first met Peter Parker in Civil War during a scene where Tony Stark unexpectedly shows up at Peter's house, chatting with Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), when he gets recruited to join Team Iron Man in this conflict. The next time we see him in the movie is when Tony calls for him ("Underoos"), when he springs into action and steals Captain America's (Chris Evans) shield. We see through a video diary how Happy Hogan flies Peter from New York to Berlin, while giving him his brand new Spidey suit, and we even get some footage from the Berlin airport battle from a different perspective, through Peter's video diary.
One of the most beloved and iconic super heroes of all time is back with a fresh, new take on the character for Spider-Man: Homecoming, debuting on digital September 26 and on 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD October 17 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Tom Holland (Captain America: Civil War) stars as Peter Parker, who, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark (two-time Academy Award nominee Robert Downey, Jr., Best Actor, Chaplin, 1992; Best Supporting Actor, Tropic Thunder, 2008), tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in New York City while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man.
