Over the weekend, a new clip from Spider-Man: Homecoming was shown during a Sony Pictures movie panel at Brazil's CCXP convention,revealing that Spider-Man's new costume for the film has a surprising old school feature - his underarm web-wings. Though the footage has not been released to the public, Marvel's Vice-President of Digital Ryan Penagos was there providing descriptions of the scene over Twitter.

"The Spider-Man: Homecoming footage was short but awesome. Starts from Spidey's POV, talking with Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau)," Penagos tweeted. "There's a case from Tony Stark with an 'upgrade' for Spidey. Then we see Spidey leap off a building, open his arms, web wings!"

The underarm web-wings were a staple of Spider-Man's early adventures, drawn by Steve Ditko. They've appeared on numerous iterations of his costume over the years, though they are often streamlined out. They've never appeared on a cinematic Spider-Man costume before.

No images of the suit with the web-wings have been released, but Penagos described it as a "classic underarm webbing look," suggesting that it will be close to the original Steve Ditko design.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled for a July 7, 2017 release date.
