The latest Avengers: Infinity War TV spot gives fans its best look yet at Peter Parker's Iron Spider suit.
Reprising his role from 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tom Holland will join the Avengers to take on Thanos. The Iron Spider suit was briefly glimpsed at the end of the wall-crawler's solo adventure, and it appears as if he has received another upgrade, courtesy of Tony Stark.
With only weeks until Joe and Anthony Russo's ensemble film arrives in theaters, the TV spots are coming thick and fast. Audiences only just saw Josh Brolin's Thanos threaten to snap his fingers and wipe out half the universe, but the focus is now back on Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Most of the footage has already been seen, but there is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it look at the Iron Spider suit. Unfortunately, the shot doesn't reveal where or when the moment takes place in the movie, but it does show Holland swinging into action.
Given that the spot is named "Iron Spider," it's no surprise Spider-Man is the focus of the promo. Away from the classic Iron Spider look of red and gold to match Iron Man's color scheme, the Russo brothers have added a modern twist in keeping with Spider-Man's usual red-and-blue tones. Leaks have already confirmed that the Iron Spider suit will include its mechanical legs, but unfortunately, the spot doesn't show them.
Introduced in 2006's The Amazing Spider-Man #529, the Iron Spider is a relatively new addition to Spider-Man's impressive wardrobe of costumes. Fans already knew that Holland would be getting a different look for Infinity War, and similar to Iron Man's ever-changing costume in the MCU, it looks like Peter Parker will be getting the same treatment (for now).
As the culmination of the first decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the heroes audiences have come to know since Iron Man, Infinity War brings together everyone from the Avengers to the Guardians of the Galaxy. Going from a friendly neighborhood hero to full-blown Avenger, Spider-Man promises to be an integral part of Infinity War and continue to cement Tom Holland's role in the MCU.
