In this new photo that the actor posted on Holland's Instagram page, the actor passed on to his fans that his first night shooting in Queens was a resounding success, saying that the borough already feels like home. If there are any differences between this costume and what Holland wore in Civil War, they're minuscule, but seeing Holland as an unmasked Peter Parker is nonetheless welcome.

While Spider-Man's adventures in the Marvel comics universe have stretched across the globe and even to other planets, he'll always feel most at home in Queens and the general New York City area. Captain America: Civil War briefly explored MCU Peter Parker's neck of the woods when Tony Stark came to recruit him, but Spider-Man: Homecoming will follow the young hero primarily defending the Queens area. Fun fact, of all the Spider-Man movies that have been released so far, 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the only one that was entirely shot in New York.

Peter Parker was only six months into his crimefighting career during Captain America: Civil War, so when Spider-Man: Homecoming kicks off, he'll still be getting the hang of being a superhero. However, it won't just be stopping bank robbers and preventing car crashes on the docket. He'll also have to contend with The Vulture, The Tinkerer and The Shocker, his first super villains. On top of all that, Peter will need to balance his costumed activities with his responsibilities as a high school student, and as any Spider-Man fan, be they casual or hardcore, will tell you, that ends up causing a lot of problems for the teenager.

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