Cool New Details on the Technology of Spider-Man's Suit in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING
If you think you know everything about what Spider-Man's suit is capable of in Spider-Man: Homecoming, you'd be wrong. We've got some cool new details to share with you regarding his suit thanks to executive producer Eric Carroll, who talked to /Film during their set visit.
We've already seen a few things like the web-wings and the spider-tracer and more, but that seems like it's just a little taste of what this sucker can do. Carrol reveals the suit has a voice operating system like Jarvis built into the suit, which is pretty damn cool! Carrol explains:
“Probably most notably, it 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.’”
That sounds like it's going to be a really fun element to play with. Carroll went on to explain how they approached reinventing the movie, the suit that the character will be running around in:
"As much as we can… we try to make it feel like the world we live in. And we felt like if a kid is running around in a skin-tight suit with all of these cool features, it’s probably going to be pretty high tech."
It's explained that we'll see Peter Parker inventing his webbing fluid, which is apparently a practical effect. They brought in a chemist to help them "figure out what would melt good together to give us that length of [Laughter] webby fluid liquid. So that was something we actually shot."
He also talks about the hologram interface that we saw during the post-credits scene of Captain America: Civil War and what that interface is used for. Carroll says:
“One of the ideas is that when he does this [movement] he can adjust the spray, and he can even scroll through different web settings, like spinning web, web ball, ricochet web… you know, all of the stuff we can see him do in the comics, Tony has built into this. That was sort of unlocked for him. So when he shines that, it will go [boom noise], and if he wants to shoot just the one swinging web, it will go down really small. And if he wants to web a guy to the wall, it goes [makes noise] and goes like that. It’s kind of like a DSLR camera. He can shoot without it, or he can hold that thing a second, get his aiming right, and really choose a web to shoot.”
These are just a few new things that many of you probably aren't familiar with yet and there's no doubt that Peter is going to have way too much fun with it. He has so much fun with it, in fact, that as we saw in the latest trailer, Tony Stark takes it away from him!
