The first reactions to the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland have swung onto the web.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is an incredibly important film for Sony Pictures. Not only is Homecoming the first film with the latest iteration of the web-crawler, it’s the first standalone Spider-Man feature that is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The film picks up with Peter Parker (Holland) following the events of Captain America: Civil War as the young web-slinger balances his dual identity of a budding superhero while navigating the everyday life of a teenager in high school. Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as Tony Stark and serves as a mentor to Peter, offering his guidance and leadership in an effort to coach the young hero so that he can eventually become an official Avenger just as Peter goes up against his first major nemesis, Adrian Toomes aka The Vulture (Michael Keaton).

While Spider-Man: Homecoming is under embargo for review, critics have shared their initial impressions of the film online. You can check out their tweets below.

The film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly and Bokeem Woodbine, as well as Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice and Abraham Attah. Here’s the official 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 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.

Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
