With Spider-Man: Homecoming swinging onto screens next month, stunt double Chris Silcox donned one of the actual Spidey suits used in the film and took to London’s streets to create these striking images. Best of all, there’s no Photoshop in sight – all the pictures are taken straight from the lens.

With Tom Holland playing Spider-Man for the first time in a standalone film, following a brief cameo in Captain America: Civil War, Silcox also joins the extended Marvel universe as the British actor’s stunt double.

‘It’s been an honour to work on Spider-Man: Homecoming as Tom’s stunt double,’ said Silcox. ‘I’m proud to bring the Spidey suit into his hometown and showcase a little of what’s to come when the film is released in a few weeks. The views from London’s Heron and BT towers are spectacular and rival those of New York!’

Spider-Man: Homecoming synopsis

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr).

Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.  His moment has arrived as he is challenged to become the hero he is meant to be.
