Tom Holland's hotly-anticipated outing as New York's greatest (read: only) web-slingin' Spider-Man gets its new—and officially final—trailer.

Spider-Man: Homecoming looks rad...and stays lookin' rad until his suit talks.

Because this is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spidey teams up with Iron Man to pummel ex-Batman actor Michael Keaton (playing Vulture) the way an iron boot would usually pummel a spider. And because this is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, etc., Marvel addressed the question of realism, which is to say:

How would a teenager dress-up in a spidey suit and swing down Fifth Avenue?

And Marvel's answer was, “Because billionaires.” (Considering Marvel's box office returns, you have to wonder what those executives get up to.)

Anyway, the suit talks, JARVIS-style. It also does maths: calculates web angles, web speed, how Spidey can use his new powers (once symbolic of puberty, now just symbolic of Spider-Man's tendency to pummel people, iron boot, etc.), chats him up. Probably makes him a cup of coffee in the morning too. I'm guessing the movie's big theme is it pays to be rich. (I kid.)

Anyway (again), reaction to this has been...mixed.

Others have been happy:

And some have just been...amazing:
