SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING - Tech for Spider-Man and The Vulture’s Suits Teased by Jon Watts
Spider-Man is going to get a few new upgrades to his suit in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and he’s probably going to need them to battle The Vulture, who is going to have a high tech suit of his own. We got a brief look at The Vulture’s costume in the footage we saw at Comic-Con, and it looks pretty damn menacing.
During an interview with Collider, director Jon Watts offered a few new details on The Vulture’s suit and teased its connection to the story:
"It's a very tech based approach to how The Vulture would build a wing suit and how he would fly. It's not just a cool design, it's a big part of the story. That I can't give away, but there's some cool stuff that goes along with that."
It’s hard to tell what exactly he means by that, but maybe it’s connected to the other rumored villain in the movie, The Tinkerer. He could be the guy who supplies Spider-Man’s rogue gallery of villains with the tech to fight him. When asked about why Marvel decided against making The Vulture a metahuman, Watts added:
"From the very beginning, we wanted to try to keep it tech based just to keep it different initially from what we had seen before. Just getting away from anything that was too similar to [the past], and it sets up a really cool thing that I don't want to talk about yet! It's gonna be awesome."
What’s that really cool thing he doesn’t want to talk about!? I hate when they say stuff like that! I can’t even begin to speculate what it could be.
In a separate interview with ComicBook.com, Watts briefly teased Spider-Man’s new suit and some of other the unknown surprises that it contains:
"Well, the suit that Spidey was given in Civil War is a Stark suit, so you have to wonder with a Stark suit, what else can it do?"
It’s already been rumored that that the suit could include the classic web-wings, but other than that, we’re not sure what other kind of Stark tech the suit entails. Now it's just going to be a long wait before we see what exactly Watts is teasing in these interviews.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released on July 7th, 2017.
