Spider-Man: Homecoming Will Open Where The First Avengers Movie Ends

It seems that Spider-Man: Homecoming will be doing a lot of work in terms of integrating Peter Parker to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though fans are expecting the movie to pick-up right where Civil War left off, it looks like the movie will be stretching out all the way back to 2012's Avengers for some backstory on Adrian Toomes a.k.a. The Vulture (Adrian Toomes).

Coming Soon runs through the beginning of the movie, starting with the end of the Chitauri Invasion. They say:

The film literally begins in the shadow of Star Tower, now with its trademark "A" still hanging on. Michael Keaton's Toomes has arrived with his boys to begin the clean-up process, a nice little contract he's picked up for his salvage business, only to be stopped by the Department of Damage Control (a nod to the classic Marvel comic series) who are taking over the clean-up and send Toomes away.


The movie will then transition to the timeline around the events in Civil War, showing that Peter actually hung out in Europe for a bit after Stark sent him home.

Following that, and the Sony and Marvel logos, things will jump into the middle of Civil War, just after Tony Stark has recruited Peter to his side of the fight. A montage will show Peter's exploits in leaving New York, riding on a private jet to Germany, and taking place in the big airport fight. We'll also see what he did right after that, hanging around in Europe… literally, as he explores the world in his brand-new Spider-Man suit.

With all the rumors swirling around about Sony pulling Spider-Man out of the MCU, it's quite odd how much of the Marvel Studios world is used to build up Spider-Man: Homecoming. Hopefully the studios will keep sharing the characters for a long time.

Spider-Man: Homecoming comes out on July 7.
