Marvel fans got their first official look at the MCU's version of Spider-Man when Tom Holland swung into Captain America: Civil War as a guest of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Being part of Team Iron Man meant that Spidey received a costume upgrade, but we didn't get to see all of the bells and whistles that come with a Stark-designed suit... until now. For a large chunk of this summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter Parker (Holland) will be fighting crime using the Civil War suit, and he'll learn that it comes, with FAR more gadgets than the teenager from Queens is used to. Let's break the suit's powers down now.

During a recent visit to the Atlanta set of Jon Watts' upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, we learned all about the suit that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) will give to Peter Parker -- a suit that, according to the latest trailer, Stark will also take back because he's not sure Peter's worthy. Before Spidey gets stripped of his tricked out Swiss Army Knife of a costume, he's going to get a chance to explore several of its high-tech functions while battling the Vulture (Michael Keaton) and the Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine). While it's not quite the Iron Spider suit that Spider-Man received in the comic books, Spider-Man: Homecoming is going to feature a ton of technological upgrades for our friendly neighborhood wallcrawler. Since this is a Stark designed suit, we should start with the obvious enhancement:

The Suit Has A JARVIS-Type Voice

Iron Man rarely fights alone. He either has War Machine (Don Cheadle) or a fellow Avenger by his side in battle. And yet, even when Tony has to go solo on a mission, he's always accompanied by his artificial intelligence program JARVIS... and Spidey will have one for himself, albeit it temporarily. On the set, co-producer Eric Hauserman Carroll dove into elaborate details of the tricks attached to Spider-Man's new suit, which will kick in once Tony deactivates something Marvel is calling "The Training Wheels Protocol," and talked about the voice Peter Parker will hear in his head. Carroll told us:

Most notably, [the suit] starts talking to him, and he goes, 'Oh, this is weird.' And he starts asking it stuff, but he's not super slick or Tony Stark smart, who invented the OS and did all this. He's a kid. So he's like, 'Um, how do I get to where that thing is?' And it's like, 'Um, I don't know. Pretty much drive? How are you going to get there?' And he's like, 'Um, if I didn't have a car, let's just say, how would I get there?' And it's like, 'Well, if you walk...' And he's like, 'No, OK, alright... I guess just give me directions and I'll figure out the HOW I'm getting there.'

At the time of our set visit, Marvel and Sony had not cast the voice of Peter Parker's JARVIS, so expect that to be a fun surprise when Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters. For more on other surprises, keep reading.
