We’re just hours away from the premier of the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Though we saw a short teaser yesterday, the full version will come tonight during Jimmy Kimmel Live. After Tom Holland wowed audeinces earlier this years as the third cinematic incarnation of Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War, Marvel fans are eagerly anticipating the first full-length movie to feature the Wall Crawler in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
One of the most exciting bits of any new on-screen interpretation of Spidey is seeing what his costume will look like. When we first met Peter in Civil War, Tony Stark showed us a brief glimpse of Peter wearing a homemade outfit he designed for fighting crime. Of course, Stark decided to give Peter an upgrade to his costume before he joined Team Iron Man. While the sparkling suit added a few new details, it won over fans by being fairly faithful to the Steve Ditko version from the comics. Thanks to the teaser for the trailer we saw yesterday, we now know that the suit will also feature Ditko’s classic underarm “web wings.”
According to an exclusive interview from USA Today with MCU producer Kevin Feige, that’s not the only bonus feature to Spidey’s new threads. The new suit “can do a lot more than he even realizes right now.” In news that won’t be a surprise to anyone who’s followed the cinematic exploits of the genius inventor, when we see Spidey don the costume in Spider-Man: Homecoming, “you begin to see just how much Tony Stark loves bells and whistles.”
The question on every fan’s mind now, is, what are the other additions to the costume? There’s of course a long list of tech from the comics that Spidey has employed, from tracking devices to a belt-buckle flashlight in the image of his face. In fact, the tag at the end of Civil War featured a very similar looking projection with the note that teased Stark would be reuniting with Peter. There’s also the possibilty of some upgrades to the web shooters Spider-Man uses. Perhaps Stark’s new additions will enable Peter to bust out some comic book classics, like the web parachute or some web bolas. It’d also be helpful if the suit helped protect Peter from burns and bullets, as he’s sure to come into contact with a lot of both as he navigates his new role of crime fighter.
Whatever upgrades the suit has, they’re sure to come in handy when Spidey faces off against the horrifying new threat of Michael Keaton’s The Vulture. Perhaps some different vision modes in his shutter-like eye pieces will help him track his flying foe. Whatever the new tech, we know both Tony and Happy Hogan will be in Homecoming, so we’re sure to get plenty of hilarious moments where Peter discovers some of his new gadgets and Tony tries not to gloat to hard.
Stay tuned for the premiere of the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and let us know in the comments what gadgets from the comics you hope Spidey’s new suit has.
