Peter Parker's costumes in the previous Spider-Man movies did a satisfiable job of keeping his identity secret, but the one Tom Holland's Peter wears in Spider-Man: Homecoming is so much more than a simple disguise. Now that he's upgraded his superhero duds from everyday clothing to the technologically-enhanced suit Tony Stark built, Peter now has other tools in his arsenal to fight crime besides his trademark web-shooters. Holland even compared its capabilities to the smart phone many of us carry around in our pockets or purses every day, only way better. The actor said:
Although moviegoers saw Spider-Man wearing his new costume last year in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming will show what it's fully capable of, from adjusting itself to fit Peter Parker's build to the Spider-symbol becoming a drone. In fact, the suit has so many features (some of which have been disabled by Tony's "Training Wheels Protocol") that Peter trying to figure them out will result in some entertaining moments during the Web-Slinger's first solo movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Holland told CNET:
For those of you who like your Spider-Man relying on his own smarts rather than technology given to him, not to worry. It was revealed in an earlier Spider-Man: Homecoming preview that Tony will take the suit back after Peter's failed attempt to stop Vulture's gang results in a ferry breaking in half. Peter will eventually have to face The Vulture in his original costume and bulky web-shooters, but it looks like for a good chunk of the movie, Peter will be using this advanced technology, be it purposefully or accidentally, to help keep the innocent safe. Whether he gets this cool suit back by the end of the movie or decides that he prefers a simpler approach to fulfilling his superhero duties remains to be seen.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will spin its web in theaters on July 7. Don't forget to also check out our 2017 movie guide to find out what other blockbusters are being released throughout the rest of the year.
