Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has gotten an upgrade, and some comics fans aren’t too thrilled about it (we’re looking at you, Twitter.)
Marvel Studios debuted the third (and final?) Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer overnight, and it gives us a much better look at the Stark Industries version of the Spider-Man costume. The new suit is complete with voice navigation (think JARVIS meets Siri), a parachute, and the ability to transform the Spider-Man logo an inexplicable googly-eyed robot friend who looks like he belongs in a Michael Bay Transformers movie.
Here’s a closer look at Spidey’s onboard navigation, scanning his possible web shooter combinations…
And here’s his little robot buddy.
But at least the trailer gives fans a better look at Michael Keaton’s Vulture.
It’s understandable why Marvel held off on revealing the capabilities of the suit until the last trailer, as it’s quite a departure from previous on-screen versions of Spider-Man. However, in recent comics story arcs, Peter Parker has upgraded his tech significantly. And when your mentor is Tony Stark, you’re bound to be surrounded with gadgets and gizmos aplenty.
Now, if only Peter can resist the urge to sell the suit on eBay and pay Aunt May’s rent for… ever.
A new Spider-Man: Homecoming international trailer lets us see what being Spider-Man is like from Peter Parker’s point of view. The trailer begins with him vlogging moments before his big debut in Captain America: Civil War.
The international trailer doesn’t show us the suit tech as much, but it focuses on Michael Keaton’s Vulture, who appears to be selling Avengers tech on the black market in Spider-Man: Homecoming. It’s a pretty interesting take on the character, and it’s great to see Michael Keaton back in a tentpole film.
Spider-Man: Homecoming opens on July 7, 2017 and is set to debut with a $125 million weekend.
