The Spider-Man: Homecoming cast has got us feeling hyped! We can’t wait for Spidey to swing into theaters in July to see the movie’s spectacular cast in action. And while Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr. have taken center stage in the trailers, but there are so many amazing young actors in the cast. ICYMI, here’s everything the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast has taught us:

Spider-Man: Homecoming will have great stunts.

Tom Holland posted this photo back in April from the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming. What’s important is that he’s giving an enthusiastic thumbs-up to George Cottle, the movie’s stunt coordinator. Cottle comes to the behind-the-scenes of world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from DC Entertainment where he did stuntwork on Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. We’re already impressed.

Michael Keaton’s Vulture is not playing.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at Holland and Michael Keaton, who plays the Vulture, having a talk on the set with director Jon Watts. Judging from Holland’s caption, it seems like the pair are prepping to shoot an intense scene. And if you’ve seen the trailer it looks like the movie will be full of them. Keaton’s Vulture really isn’t playing.

Tony Stark, Peter Parker and Happy Hogan are the power trio.

Tony Stark is doing his best to help Peter find his path in Spider-Man: Homecoming — or maybe it’s just a mentor act, so he can sleep with Aunt May. Regardless, Tony and his right-hand man Happy Hogan are on the scene to give Peter a much-needed assist.

The Spider-Man: Homecoming cast is the coolest.

Just look at these fresh faces! Tom Holland is great on his own, but in Spider-Man: Homecoming he’s surrounded by an epic squad of young actors who play his schoolmates at Midtown.  That’s Liz (Laura Harrier), Flash (Tony Revolori), Ned (Jacob Batalon), and Michelle (Zendaya) in the pic.

Zendaya is everything.

You probably already knew this, but just in case you missed it: Zendaya is here to remind you that she is, in fact, everything. While she plays the awkward Michelle in Spider-Man: Homecoming, the actress herself is anything but.

The cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming is super nice.

How did the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast spend their free time during filming? Well, visiting sick children, of course. Because that’s just how amazing they are. Check out Zendaya’s video of Holland surprising that kid in the children’s hospital. The best part? The kid tells Holland he likes Batman better than Spider-Man.


The Spidey-fam really love each other.

The high school life of Peter Parker and his friends is a huge part of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Director Jon Watts has even said the movie is inspired by ’80s teen movies of John Hughes — The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, etc. — and we can feel that vibe in the way the cast seems to have bonded.

Flash Thompson plays the ukulele?

Okay, so, Flash Thompson — Peter’s high school nemesis in the Spider-Man comics — isn’t exactly the kind of guy you’d expect to be a ukulele master. And he probably isn’t in Spider-Man: Homecoming either, but the actor who plays him is. Tony Revolori posted this version of the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer intercut with video of him playing the classic Spider-Man theme on the uke, and it’s great.

The Spider-Man: Homecoming cast loves the fans.

It’s so obvious that this cast truly loves their fans, and that’s probably because many of them are fans themselves. When we saw them at Comic-Con in 2016 you could feel how excited they were to be there. We can’t wait to see them on screen this July when Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters!
