In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter is outside a party, practicing his entrance as Spider-Man, when he sees a suspicious blue explosion in the distance. He takes off to investigate and prepares to launch the web to swing on, but realises that he is aiming at clear sky since there are no high buildings from which to swing. After that, seemingly having no other option, he comedically sprints to the source of the explosion on foot.
I remember that in various Spider-Man video games he could use the web-zip ability to shoot web at an object close to his altitude, then pull and propel himself forwards. In the Ultimate Spider-Man video game there was even a section centered around this mechanic, based in a borough with single two-story houses.
Is such a technique canon outside of video games? Could Spider-Man have actually used it to propel himself against the ground and nearby trees to get to the spot faster?
