Disney-Marvel is no stranger to Jimmy Kimmel Live! having used the late night talk show to promote every release in the franchise to date (since Disney acquired Marvel in 2009), and frequently to break major news and release first-look posters and trailers.
With Spider-Man: Homecoming, a film co-produced by Marvel and Sony, that tradition continues. And while Spider-Man: Homecoming is still technically a Sony Pictures property (they’re paying for the movie while Marvel Studios helps make it), the marketing teams are still going with Disney-owned ABC talkshow for the big start to Homecoming’s PR blitz.
Later this evening Jimmy Kimmel Live! will host the world premiere of the first Spider-Man: Homecoming teaser trailer but there’s a second version as well which features a few different scenes for the international crowd. And they’re doing it in style. Check out what… or more specifically, who‘s lining up outside of the ABC studio on Hollywood Blvd:

And yes, it’s a safe bet at least one of these web-slinging wannabes is the actual (current) Peter Parker, Tom Holland. The following images, including one of young Holland in a similar costume, where shared on the official Jimmy Kimmel Live! Twitter account moments ago:
The re-reboot of Spider-Man, a film which releases in between Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok next summer, may be the highlight of tonight’s taping but other guests include Tom Ford who’s promoting Nocturnal Animals and Jennifer Aniston who’s promoting Office Christmas Party.
Stay tuned into Screen Rant all evening and tomorrow for more on the trailers, reveals, and news for Spider-Man: Homecoming and until then check out the latest official photo and villain details and hints about other abilities that Spider-Man’s new suit (made by Tony Stark [Robert Downey Jr.] for Captain America: Civil War) may have.
We visited the set of Homecoming earlier this year but and will share our interviews and reports in the near future!
