Peter Parker (Tom Holland) could be debuting a fully fleshed out Iron-Spider suit in Avengers: Infinity War, complete with all the additional attachments that make it so cool looking on the pages of the comic books. As the Marvel Cinematic Universe gears up for the arrival of its biggest and baddest villain yet in Thanos (Josh Brolin), our heroes are doing all they can to prep for what's to come. Earth's Mghtiest Heroes are reaching out to all potential allies, including the Guardians of the Galaxy, and other single-operating heroes like Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
Fans got a clear glimpse of the upgraded armor by the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, as Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) offers Peter the opportunity to be an official member of the Avengers. The young teen declined the post, as well as the suit, however, fans already knew that it wouldn't be the last time they would see the shiny garb. Lo and behold, once the first sneak peek for Infinity War dropped last year during the D-23 Expo, fans again saw Spidey sporting the aforementioned upgraded ensemble.
Courtesy of Hansolodies365, images of the complete LEGO set for Infinity War have been uploaded on Imgur. While the images have not been confirmed to be official, fans have been seeing bits and pieces of the set leak online over the last several weeks, but never the full collection, until now. There are a number of details in the minifigs that could give fans some hints as to what they can expect in the upcoming ensemble film, but the main takeaway from it is seeing a comic book-accurate Iron Spider suit. Complete with its additional appendages, the figurine features the three mechanical arms also known as waldoes, which could ideally help Peter for surveillance with mini cameras attached to the tips and even act as pseudo fingers given their gripping capabilities.
While it makes sense for Peter Parker to get an upgraded suit considering the catastrophic battle that lies ahead, some people cannot help but feel that debuting the complete Iron Spider suit as early as this in his young existence in the MCU could be a bit too much. There are purist fans who already didn't overly like Spidey's Stark Tech-infused suit in Homecoming, and jumping from that to what this LEGO set is hinting at feels a bit extreme. It will be interesting to see how Marvel Studios plans to ground the high schooler back in his Queens life after the events of Infinity War and Avengers 4, especially when Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is slated to usher in MCU's Phase 4.
Aside from Spidey, other heroes in the Lego set are also sporting either different-looking weapons or wearing improved suits. Thor, for example, is wielding the Jarnbjorn (at least that's what it looks like) -- a Dwarven-forged battle axe that the God of Thunder used in the comic book. In the aftermath of the destruction of Mjolnir, there have been rumors about Odinson possibly getting a new weapon that were corroborated by the early concept art for Avengers: Infinity War and even comments from Chris Hemsworth himself. Stark also appears to be wearing an improved Iron Man suit with rocket propulsors - previously seen in a merchandise graphic - that will presumably be handy if the fight against Thanos forces him off of Earth and onto a different planet
