*Article updated since release of teaser for the upcoming trailer.
Earlier today, Sony Pictures showed off a snippet of the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer at Brazil’s CCXP, and descriptions are already flooding online. The clearest comes from Marvel’s own Agent M, and as you can see below, the wall-crawler is about to get a major costume upgrade as he’s given a new suit by Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan. Some claim that it bears a resemblance to the Iron Spider costume from the Civil War comic book, but a detailed breakdown of the suit has yet to be revealed.
“The Spider-Man Homecoming footage was short but AWESOME,” he explains via Twitter. “Starts from Spidey’s POV, talking with Happy Hogan. There’s a case from Tony Stark with an “upgrade” for Spidey. Then we see Spidey leap off a building, open his arms, web wings! There were a few more flashes of shots, but I can’t remember. That classic underarm webbing look was just so rad.”
Apparently, those web wings are fairly large and Spider-Man actually jumps off the Washington monument (with a helicopter in the background), opens his arms, and starts gliding towards an oncoming Vulture. That sounds very cool, and it was also revealed at the event that the trailer will be released “soon.” That means it could be today, a week from now, or with Rogue One. Who knows!
What’s interesting/worrying about these details is the fact that we now know Iron Man will continue making Peter’s costumes and that a big chunk of the action clearly takes place outside of New York City. Those are two big departures from the comic books, but web wings? That sounds pretty spectacular.
