Great News Tony Stark Gifts Web Wings in SpiderMan Homecoming

first_imgThere’s a case from Tony Stark with an “upgrade” for Spidey. Then we see Spidey leap off a building, open his arms, web wings! #ccxp2016 2/?— Ryan Penagos (@AgentM) December 2, 2016If you aren’t familiar with what “web wings” are, you might not understand just how pleasing this is to a long-time fan of classic Spider-Man. The reference is a visual one to how Spider-Man’s co-creator, Steve Ditko, drew the original Spider-Man costume.The more we see of the new Sony/Marvel Studios take on Spider-Man, the more obvious it is that the entire production, from director Jon Watts to producers Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige, are trying to bring the oldest elements of a Spider-Man story to the forefront. In Captain America: Civil War, Tony Stark engineers Spider-Man’s classic costume to have moving lenses that can widen to be expressive like in Spider-Man cartoons, but also narrow to a thick-lined angular eye, like the original Steve Ditko-drawn Spider-Man lenses.In the post-credits scene to Civil War, Peter Parker is recuperating in his room when he gets a visit from Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) and it’s revealed that the web shooters Tony Stark made Spidey (from Peter’s web formula) has an operating system display that looks like a digital update to Spidey’s old belt light (let’s call it a Spidey signal), also nodding to the original Ditko design for the character.Captain America: Civil War post credits sequence.Considering Amazing Spider-Man 2, the last Sony attempt at a Spider-Man movie, designed it’s costume to look more like the Mark Bagley drawn Spider-Man (of The Clone Saga and Ultimate Spider-Man), it must be the Marvel Studios impulse to bring the character back to his roots as an unsure high school student wearing a costume that is cool, but not aggressively branded as a spider.The web-wings represent the final missing piece from the Ditko inspired suit, which makes this Spider-Man super-fan happy, but that’s only because Marvel Studios is heavily in this Spider-Man mix. Back in the day (Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released in 2014), it was hard to tell if the old Spider-Man production teams were more dedicated to looking cool or telling a distinctly Spider-Man story. Marvel continues to find success in even the most unlikely characters by committing to those characters.On its face, the idea of having web wings is ridiculous for Spider-Man: he’s living in New York so he can almost always swing instead of glide, for one. For two, wings made out of webbing seem like they wouldn’t be good for gliding or flying because of how little drag they’d create on the air. For three, Spider-Man with web wings is a comic book character with an excessive amount of cross hatching lines. However, what we’ve heard or know about Spider-Man: Homecoming makes me think this can be pulled off without being needlessly silly.Other internet reports say that Spider-Man’s web wings will be in the trailer when he uses them to jump off the Washington Monument and glide towards an oncoming Vulture (Michael Keaton). Taking Spider-Man out of New York and placing him on the Washington Mall would necessitate another method of Spider-transportation that isn’t web-slinging. The Vulture as a villain would also suggest that a different method of aerial maneuvering could be a benefit to Peter. The gliding suit also appears to be a gift from Tony Stark delivered via Happy Hogan, which keeps with the technology in Spider-Man’s suit being a collaborative hybrid between natural Parker genius and limitless Stark funding.All the plot elements are lining up for Spider-Man: Homecoming to have a complete Steve Ditko suit on screen without having to over-correct the whole story with a gee-whiz Ditko/Stan Lee Spider-Man story. Which isn’t to say the classic stories aren’t good, just that the visual styling is something that can (and should!) be brought forward to create familiarity as we’re introduced to our third on-screen Spider-Man franchise.There are hints that other Silver Age Spider-Man story tropes might seep into Homecoming. Tony Revolori is playing Flash Thompson and Laura Harrier is Liz Allan in the movie, the former being Peter’s classic rival and the latter being one of his earliest crushes. The problems Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be facing will be both of the superhero and teenage variety, like the times before adult Peter Parker became a mainstay on the pages of the comics.The most welcome of all the classic Spider-Man characteristics to return is Peter’s scientific mind amongst Marvel Universe scientific minds. The webbing he creates convinces Tony Stark to bring him aboard in Captain America: Civil War, signaling that Iron Man can see Peter’s young brilliance. For Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first big-screen iteration of The Vulture, looks to be a tech-based villain that will require these upgrades to the Spider-Man suit. It’s just icing on the cake that those upgrades are the classic web wings.There’s even a new trailer for Homecoming!Tomorrow, Spider-Man comes home.

Tom Holland is in as the new Peter Parker who is already suited up as Spider-Man as we learned way back in May of this year (strain to remember Captain America: Civil War). This past weekend in Brazil was Comic-Con Experience 2016 where Marvel debuted the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 trailer as well as the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming that is expected to debut in the U.S. with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story next week.There was some official chatter coming from Marvel when the Homecoming trailer debuted in the form of tweets from Executive Editor of Marvel Digital Media Ryan Penagos, who said that the trailer included shots from Spidey’s point of view as well as a scene of Peter meeting with Tony Stark’s wheel-man Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) who brings a case for the young Mr. Parker…last_img read more
