Ahead of Saturday's rumored new trailer, a look at the Spider-Man: Far From Home costumes comes from the Brazil Comic-Con has hit the net. The post is accompanied by the caption: "I just realised I'm not playing Spider-Man".

The actor, who also debuted on Instagram a few hours ago, chose to make his first post on the social media platform about the Spider-Man role.

He will be joining Tom Holland, who is reprising his role as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, as well as cast members including Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Marisa Tomei, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Keaton.
