If you need more evidence that the limo scene — featuring Peter Parker (Tom Holland) asking Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) if he can keep his new Spidey suit and how one becomes an Avenger — in the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer takes place shortly after Captain America: Civil War, a Reddit user (henrybddf) has posted an image that makes the connection a no-brainer.
The image shows that the black eye Tony Stark sustained during his first fight with a brainwashed-Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) in Marvel's 2016 superhero-on-superhero blockbuster is still visible — despite trying to conceal the blemish with a pair of sunglasses — in the Homecoming' limo scene.
If that high-level of attention to continuity is carried out througout Spider-Man: Homecoming, Screen Junkies and Cinema Sins will be producing some very short videos in their "Honest Trailers" and "Everything Wrong With" series, respectively.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
The cast features Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr.. It also includes Jon Favreau, Martin Starr, Kenneth Choi, Michael Mando, Selenis Leyva, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg, Jr., JJ Totah, Hannibal Buress, and Jacob Batalon.
The film is being directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car), based on a screenplay by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley (Vacation reboot) and Jon Watts & Christopher Ford and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers.
The film is produced by Marvel boss Kevin Feige and former Sony boss Amy Pascal. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Jeremy Latcham, and Stan Lee are serving as Executive Producers.
