â€œYouâ€™re in dire need of an upgrade.â€
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) will play a big role in Spider-Man: Homecoming and, as a result, his influence will be everywhere. Thatâ€™s none more obvious than in Spider-Manâ€™s suit, which is full of advanced technology, from web wings to a detachable drone.
At the end of Captain America: Civil War (Spideyâ€™s MCU debut), we find out that the suit allows Spider-Man to access a holographic display, which likely acts as an inventory wheel youâ€™d see in a video game. For example, weâ€™ve seen that the gauntlets let him see a fly-over view of New York City, which he could then use to navigate the cityâ€™sÂ streets.
That is but the tip of the iceberg of what the suit includesâ€”thereâ€™s probably much more that we havenâ€™t seen, too. In one of the trailers, we find out Stark has activated a â€œTraining Wheelsâ€ protocol, which prevents Spidey from utilizing the suit to its full potential. When that protocol is off? Who knows what goodies weâ€™ll see.
Weâ€™ve seen numerous iterations of Spider-Man on the big screen, but none have featured so much tech. Of course, you canâ€™t have Tony Stark involved without some cool toys, so it makes sense the filmmakers are tapping into Spideyâ€™s comic past for inspiration.
