Spider-Man's spandex outfit is one of the most iconic superhero costumes in comic books, appealing to children and fetishists alike — but Peter Parker isn't usually known for his progressive fashion sense.

That's all set to change, now that the first official trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming has hit the world wide web:

While there's plenty of thrilling action sequences and comedic beats to satisfy the average cinema-goer, the fashionistas among you may be excited to learn that the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming also contains a subtle easter egg revolving around clothes, one that hearkens all the way back to Iron Man 3.

Remember back when Pepper Potts was an actual person in the MCU, years before Gwyneth Paltrow decided to ditch Marvel and turn the character into a faceless name? Well, in what one could call the most PG bedroom scene in all of cinema, Iron Man 3 contained a particular sequence where Pepper Potts wore a geeky science t-shirt to bed with Tony. Guess who's brought it back for Spider-Man: Homecoming?

As Tony Stark leads Spidey down the halls of Avengers HQ, the same t-shirt can be spotted on Peter Parker. While it makes sense that both of these science-lovers would wear this type of design, it seems strange that they're both linked by Tony Stark and his intense interest in their well-being.

Is this the same shirt worn by Potts in Iron Man 3, or is it merely a coincidence? Does Tony miss Pepper so much that he's started to dress Spidey up in her clothes? Those hoping to see Peter Parker in one of these cheeky little dresses may have to wait for the inevitable sequel, but we're sure it's going to happen if Tony Stark has his way.


Who wore it best?
