Peter's Spider-Man: Homecoming suit will include its own JARVIS

Peter's suit will be getting a pretty big upgrade for Spider-Man: Homecoming. While the trailers have teased everything from Spider Tracers to armpit webs, according to producer Eric Carroll, the suit has one big feature that we have yet to see: its own JARVIS-type computer assistant, courtesy of Tony Stark.

According to Caroll, the computer is a voice "inside" Peter's head, which likely means that the computer is located somewhere in his mask. Peter, who wasn't fully aware of what the suit can do when Peter gave it to him, is pretty surprised by the AI, but then decides to make the best of it. However, he has a little bit of trouble making it work with his unique powers, asking if he'll be driving or walking (not, say, web slinging) when he asks for directions.

Other features in the newly upgraded suit will include a parachute, a heater, an airbag, an ability to light-up, and a tracking device so that Tony can keep tabs on Peter. The movie will also further utilize the computerized holograph Spider-Signal shown in the Captain America: Civil War post-credits scene, which apparently lets Peter choose what kind of web he'll generate, from a swinging web to a web ball to a Taser web.

Holland says that his favorite part of the new suit doesn't have to do with the web slingers, but instead with some enhancements to Peter's vision, something which he says plays out in "a very funny sequence" in the film. "He can sort of alter what he sees and how he sees things, and it's really funny to see," he said. "It's almost like the first time that you play a video game and the controls are all funny, and it's really funny seeing him look like a badass, but inside panic and really... not know what to do."

Tony taking the suit away from Peter is apparently going to be a big moment in the film, as teased in the second trailer. Tony doesn't want Peter to be a full-on Avenger, instead telling him to focus on high school, something which is reflected in what Carroll refers to as a "training wheels" feature that Tony has installed in the suit that keeps Peter from using all of its tech. However, Peter, who has been shown in the trailers to be pretty adept at science and design, makes it his mission to get through Tony's safety measures, something which will likely cause even further tension between the two. All of the high-tech gadgets helping Peter out will probably also make it even more difficult for him to manage after Tony takes back the suit he had given him.

According to Carroll, part of the reasoning for including all the high-tech gadgets was because this was something the past films were unable to do as easily. "We tried to go through the comics and pull out all the sort of fun and wacky things the suit did," Carroll said. "Which is even harder to explain when he built it in his own bedroom." This is another example of what Spider-Man joining the MCU has allowed filmmakers to do; Carroll has also said that this inclusion is what made them decide to choose Vulture, who has a strong rivalry with Tony Stark, as the villain for the movie.

We'll be able to see the full tech of Peter's new suit on display when Spider-Man: Homecoming flies into theaters on July 7. While we wait, see some of the hidden details you may have missed in the film's trailer and check out why the movie will be better than you think.
