Synopsis

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 superhero 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.[1]

Plot

In 2012, Tony Stark and the federal government create the U.S. Department of Damage Control (D.O.D.C.), driving salvage company owner Adrian Toomes out of business. Toomes convinces his crew to not surrender the Chitauri technology already scavenged from the Battle of New York and use it to further a criminal agenda.

Years later, following the Avengers' internal dispute, Peter Parker resumes his studies after Stark tells him he is not yet ready to become an Avenger. Over the objections of his Aunt May, Peter quits his school's decathlon team in order to spend more time focusing on his "Stark Industries Internship", which is a cover for his crimefighting activities as Spider-Man.

One night, after preventing Toomes' associates from robbing an ATM, Peter returns to his Queens apartment, where his best friend, Ned, discovers his secret identity. The next day, Ned pesters Peter all day about his abilities as Spider-Man. During gym class that day, Ned accidentally says Peter knows Spider-Man after hearing a conversation with Liz and her friends. That night, Peter is forced to go to Liz's party. While changing into Spider-Man, Peter comes across Toomes' associates Schultz and Brice selling Chitauri weaponry to local gangster Aaron Davis. Peter nearly drowns while intervening, but is rescued by Stark, who is monitoring the Spider-Man suit he gave Parker and warns him against involvement with the dangerous criminals. Later, angry with Brice for jeopardizing the operation, Toomes accidentally kills him with one of their weapons, and Shultz becomes the new shocker.

Retrieving a Chitauri weapon left behind by Brice, Peter works with Ned to remove the power core. A tracking device leads Schultz to Midtown School of Science and Technology, but Peter and Ned manage to evade him. After planting his own tracking device on Schultz and learning that it leads to Maryland, Peter rejoins the decathlon team and accompanies them to Washington, D.C. for Nationals.

Working with Ned, Peter disables the tracker implanted in his Spider-Man Suit and unlocks all its secret features. He later tries to stop Toomes from stealing weapons from a D.O.D.C. truck but ends up being overpowered and trapped inside the truck, causing him to miss Nationals. When he discovers that the Chitauri power core is unstable, Peter tracks Ned to the Washington Monument, arriving just as the core explodes and traps Ned in an elevator. Evading local authorities, Peter manages to save Ned Leeds and fellow classmate, Liz Toomes, before the elevator plummets.

Returning to New York City, Peter persuades Davis to reveal Toomes' whereabouts. Confronting Toomes and his associates at the Staten Island Ferry, Peter captures the group's new buyer Mac Gargan, but Toomes escapes after a malfunctioning weapon tears the ferry in half. Stark helps Peter save the passengers before admonishing him for his recklessness and taking the suit away. While picking up Liz for Midtown's annual homecoming dance, Peter learns that she is Toomes' daughter. Deducing Peter's secret identity, Toomes threatens retaliation if he continues to interfere with his plans.

During the dance, Peter realizes Toomes is planning to hijack the Stark cargo plane transporting weaponry from Avengers Tower to the team's new headquarters in upstate New York. He leaves the dance, dons his homemade Spider-Man suit and races to Toomes' lair to confront him. He is first ambushed by Schultz, but defeats him with the help of Ned. Peter then confronts Toomes in the lair, who attempts to persuade him to his side. When Peter refuses, Toomes destroys the building's support beams and leaves him to die under the rubble.

Peter overcomes his self-doubt and escapes, before intercepting Toomes onboard the now-damaged plane and steering it towards the beach near Coney Island. The two engage in a confrontation that ends with Peter saving Toomes' life from his own unstable equipment and leaving him for the police.

Sometime later, Peter learns that Liz is moving away and that classmate Michelle Jones – whose nickname is "MJ" – will be replacing her as president of the decathlon team. Stark later offers Peter the new Iron Spider suit and an invitation to join the Avengers. Peter later declines Stark's invitation to join the Avengers and inspires Stark to bring an engagement ring to a press conference where Pepper Potts is present. Upon returning home, Peter discovers that Stark has returned his upgraded suit and puts it on just as May walks into his room.

In a mid-credits scene, an incarcerated Gargan approaches Toomes inside the prison and explains that several criminals are banding together to exact vengeance against Spider-Man. He also pressures Toomes into revealing Spider-Man's identity due to a rumor that he knows who the web crawler really is. Toomes, keeping Peter's secret, simply retorts that if he did know Spider-Man's identity that he would already be dead. Toomes then leaves to meet with his family.

In a post-credits scene, Captain America takes part in a public service announcement centering on the importance of patience, and explains how patience can be the key to victory but can also lead to something disappointing after waiting so long. Tired, he then asks how many more announcements he has to make.

Sequel

In June 2016, Rothman stated that Sony and Marvel were committed to making future Spider-Man films. The following month, Feige stated if additional films were made, "one of the early ideas [Marvel] had" for the films would be to follow the model of the Harry Potter film series, having the plot of each film cover a new school year, adding, "it was sort of how do we do a journey for Peter not dissimilar for what the students of Hogwarts would go through each of their years". By October 2016, discussions had begun for a second film, according to Holland, figuring out "who the villain is going to be and where we're going" in a potential sequel. In December 2016, after the successful release of the first Homecoming trailer, Sony slated a sequel to the film for July 5, 2019. The plan for the sequel is to occur during Parker's junior year of high school. In an interview with French magazine AlloCine, Tom Holland (Spider-Man's actor) has confirmed that there will be a trilogy of films based off his incarnation of the character stating "It's going to be an exciting couple of movies." "Yeah there'll be Spider-Man 2 and 3, it won't be Homecoming 2 and 3."
