Video Breaks Down Spider-Man: Homecoming Costume’s Capabilities

It’s no secret that Peter Parker will sport a new, Tony Stark-designed super-suit in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” complete with upgrades over the first suit Iron Man crafted. Now, thanks to a video shared via Tom Holland and Marvel’s social media accounts, we get the full rundown on the suit’s capabilities.

Spoilers follow, so click away now if you want to go into the movie theater with as many mysteries as possible!

Longtime fans of the wall-crawler will be happy to learn that among the new suit’s capabilities are upgraded web-shooters. Not only do they feature laser-guided aiming capabilities, Spidey can choose between different types of webbing. In the comics, Spider-Man’s web fluid comes in a variety of types, including Ice Webbing, Taser Webbing, Magnetic Webbing and Flame Webbing, among others. We’re betting it’s Impact Webbing — pelletized webbing that, upon impact, “explodes” into tendrils that wrap around its target — that we’ll see in action here, as it would make for an impressive visual moment on-screen.

The video also mentions the costume’s Web Wings and “expressive” eyes (perhaps they’re more for looks than for enhanced vision function?), which we saw in action in the first teaser trailer. And then there’s the “GPS Tracking System” with a holographic display. Presumably this it what we saw Peter projecting onto his ceiling at the end of “Captain America: Civil War,” and will hopefully link into his Spider-Sense, perhaps through the use of the iconic Spider-Trackers.

The most important upgrade out of #CES2017. #spidermanhomecoming

A video posted by ✌️ (@tomholland2013) on

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Directed by Jon Watts, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. The film opens July 7, 2017.
