The kid’s got a nice suit.
On Monday, Marvel shared a fun look at the Stark tech that makes up the new Spider-Man suit featured in the first stand-alone film for the Tom Holland incarnation of the web-slinging hero.
Holland’s Spidey got his new suit in Captain America: Civil War, but there are some cool gadgets that will be highlighted in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
First, the suit automatically forms to the wearer’s body, which is reminiscent of Marty’s jacket in Back to the Future: Part II.
Next, the emblem on the front of the suit doubles as a “recon drone,” or the Spider-Tracer from the comics, sending information back to the suit.
Finally, in addition to producing strains of webbing, the shooters can now deliver “proximity mine webbing,” which explodes and traps bad guys when they approach (has Tony Stark been taking inspiration from N64’s Goldeneye?).
Wow. Seems pretty clear why Peter gets so upset when Tony takes away the suit, as seen in the trailer.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled to be released on July 7.
