Right now, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is flying high on the current success of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The superhero sequel has made over $500 million in less than two weeks in theaters, and it shows no signs of slowing down. While Marvel Studios won’t have another film hit theaters until Thor: Ragnarok this November, Sony will be throwing their first official MCU entry in front of the public eye this coming July in the form of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

This entry will be especially great for hardcore Spidey fans because it will show Peter Parker as a full-on high schooler. Sure, in past films, we’ve seen him in high school, but it’s never long before he graduates and enters the real world. With at least a few films, we’ll be seeing Parker literally fight crime and then rush to finish his English homework (well, maybe not literally, but you get the idea). We’ve seen glimpses of that high school aspect in the trailer, but if you’ve been hungry to see more of that, then you’re in luck.

A new batch of Homecoming images have been released (via SMTV Reports), and they show Peter as well as classmates Ned Leeds, Liz Allan and Michelle (NOT Mary Jane).

Have a look down below.

Of course, if you were hoping for something beefier in terms of Spider-Man mythology or filmmaking, there is one photo that shows director Jon Watts with Michael Keaton, and another photo with Spidey webshooting towards what looks like a camera jib. 

Thus far, all signs have pointed to Spider-Man: Homecoming looking promising, and that hasn’t changed so far. The film looks like a healthy mix of fun school life, and typical crimefighting misadventures. Add into that the MCU connections and Stark, and you have a recipe that seems to spell another mammoth success for this franchise.

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 5, 2017.
