Does Spider-Man: Homecoming have an Age of Ultron connection?

The recent Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer has seen some online geeks speculate that the new film is directly connected to Avengers: Age of Ultron.

During one of the brief clips, we see Donald Glover appear briefly off to the side of Logan Marshall-Green, with the latter holding a high-tech weapon. Is that weapon Chitauri-based?

Some are asking this because when Marshall-Green shoots a powerful beam of some sort from the weapon you’ll notice that it appears to be a robotic-like hand opening up after he pulls the trigger. Has this been modified after the Battle of New York? With the Big Apple being the home of our favourite web crawler it could well be. Another online user is also speculating that the weapon could be a salvaged arm of an Ultron Sentry.

Wherever the weapon comes from I’m sure we’ll get some connection from previous Marvel films and not just from seeing the appearance of Iron Man.

We’ll know for certain next July with the release of the film.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
