In the midst of the countdown for last weekend's Justice League trailer, three new Spider-Man: Homecoming posters laid the groundwork for that film's second teaser as well. When it was finally time to unveil it, guests at Sony's CinemaCon panel on the night of March 27 got to see it first, but now everyone else can finally see it online.

At this time last year, Tom Holland's version of Peter Parker and Spider-Man was largely kept out of Captain America: Civil War's marketing. Now the secret is out in more ways than one, and not just to Peter's best friend, as Peter becomes a bit too overeager to make a name for himself.

Although Spider-Man isn't an Avenger yet and the Avengers are still technically broken up, their influence still hangs over this new chapter of the MCU. In addition to showing more of Avengers Tower and Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark, Captain America himself is briefly seen in a way despite being on the run.

There's also more to be seen of Michael Keaton as the Vulture, who is inspired to villainy by none other than Tony himself.

As revealed in a USA TODAY preview before the trailer came out, the Vulture actually has a day job cleaning up New York after every super battle, although one of Tony's new companies has now put him out of work. This is enough to convince Adrian Toomes that the rich and powerful like Stark "don't care about us" so he and his crew use and sell stolen weapons from several past MCU films to get ahead.

When this campaign leads to an attack on a ferry that Spider-Man rushes to stop, and which Iron Man has to bail him out of, it turns out to be pretty costly for Peter.

It took until Iron Man 3 for Tony to ask himself what he was without his super suit, but now he is forcing Peter to figure it out right off the bat. Yet since he seems to be back in his old home made suit while taking on the Vulture again anyway, it might take a while longer for Tony's lessons to sink in.

While this is a fairly Spider-Man centric trailer, the early build up had made Spider-Man: Homecoming sound more like a Peter Parker high school story straight out of John Hughes. But aside from his best friend Ned learning about his powers, that side of the story is largely left out here. Nonetheless, Peter is briefly seen getting a kiss from crush Liz Allen, while Spider-Man is briefly seen alongside Zendaya as the classmate who may or may not be Mary Jane Watson.

The rest of Spider-Man: Homecoming's secrets and lessons are still being saved for summer, more specifically on July 7.
