Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer 2: 17 Easter Eggs & References

17. Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man

Spider-Man Homecoming Tony Stark
Marvel Studios

Starting with the most obvious, the trailer starts with Tony Stark pleading with Peter Parker not to ask about the possibility of becoming an Avenger - something Parker is probably well-entitled to believe he has a chance of after Stark called him up in Civil War.

His response - "why can't you just be a friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man" - of course refers to one of Spidey's most famous catch-phrases, as well as Peter David's 24 issue run of comics from 2005. Those included appearances by the Vulture, the consideration of Peter as "beside the law" and a sequence where Peter's class-mates end up trapped on a school trip by a villain.

All of those elements also appear in Homecoming, of course.
