The first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming will likely be out before the end of the month, but audiences at a Brazilian convention got an early sneak today—and it came with a surprising revelation.


According to Marvel reporter Ryan Penagos, a brief clip from Homecoming was shown at CCXP 2016 that revealed Tony Stark provides Peter Parker with a new toy.


Comic Book Movie adds that the building Spider-Man jumps from is the Washington Monument, which is an interesting change since we’ve almost always seen Spider-Man only in New York.

The revelation of Stark giving Peter Parker web wings sparked a heated discussion among io9 staffers. Of course, there is plenty of precedent for web wings in the comics. But does it belittle Peter to have Tony not only give him his suit (in Civil War), but now this upgrade to it in Homecoming? Or is it cool because this is a slightly different version of Spidey than we’ve seen in the five previous movies?


Debate away below.

Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 7, 2017.
