Every Suit In Spider-Man: No Way Home Explained

Spoilers ahead for "Spider-Man: No Way Home"

For a poor high schooler, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) sure does have access to a bunch of nifty superhero threads. Over the course of his numerous appearances throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man has sported a ton of different suits, and he hasn't even graduated from high school yet. Of course, it helps when you're the protégé to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), who gives Peter access to a ton of new and improved suits and gadgets to help take his crimefighting to the next level dating back to the days of "Spider-Man: Homecoming." 

Tony may be gone, but his penchant for flair lives on through Peter Parker's suit choices in "Spider-Man: No Way Home." He sports an outstanding number of Spider-Man suits throughout the film's 148-minute runtime. Some of them are outfits the audience has seen before, and others are brand new. Here's a breakdown of every superhero get-up Holland's Peter Parker puts on display so that you know the differences well enough to distinguish all of the action figures that will inevitably come out in promotion of this new flick.

The upgraded Far From Home Spider-Man suit

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" begins right where 2019's "Spider-Man: Far From Home" left off. Mysterio's (Jake Gyllenhaal) doctored footage on the true identity of Spider-Man — Tom Holland's Peter Parker — is released by The Daily Bugle. Now, the whole world is against him and believes him to be a murderer. With this turn of events, it's only appropriate that a connection between the two films remains intact.

This connective tissue is the very first suit we see Spider-Man wear in "Now Way Home": his upgraded Spider-Man suit (via YouTube). The outfit we see in the first act of the movie is the same one he creates on Tony Stark's plane in "Far From Home" proceeds to wear in his final battle against Mysterio. It's nice to see this earlier suit return, especially considering we've only seen it in one previous fight. For the most part, the older suit remains in Peter's closet throughout much of the runtime of "No Way Home." After the opening sequence, Peter's in trouble with the law, and he doesn't do a ton of crimefighting in the interim.

The Iron Spider suit

The suit featured most prominently in the marketing materials for "Spider-Man: No Way Home" is the Iron Spider suit, also known as the Iron Spider Armor. This is what Peter Parker wears during one of his battles against Doc Ock (Alfred Molina). The Iron Spider suit is made up of nanotech, enveloping Peter right when he needs protection, and boy, does he need it against ol' Doc Ock. At one point during their fight, the scientist takes a blade out from one of his tentacles. Right when it's about to pierce Spider-Man's exposed chest, the nanoparticles shift position from his face to his chest, protecting him from the attack while revealing his identity to the multiversal villain. 

That's not the only significant development provided by the nanotech. Otto Octavius absorbs some of the particles into his tentacles, providing them with a red tint featured throughout the trailers. Peter's able to use this to his advantage, and since he has access to Tony Stark's tech, he's able to manipulate the tentacles to his own bidding. It ends the fight and allows him to bring Otto into Doctor Strange's (Benedict Cumberbatch) holding cell.

Spider-Man's black and gold suit

When the first trailers for "Spider-Man: No Way Home" were released, there was a lot of speculation about what the black and gold suit would do. Was it specifically designed to withstand attacks from Electro (Jamie Foxx)? As it turns out, it's simply Peter Parker's upgraded suit turned inside out. 

Earlier in the film, we see Peter get green paint thrown onto him. Plenty of New Yorkers believes The Daily Bugle's propaganda that he's responsible for Mysterio's death. With no way to prove his innocence, Peter has to put up with various assaults, including being doused with the aforementioned paint while wearing his Spider-Man outfit. He doesn't have time to get it cleaned, and, always wanting to look fresh, he turns it inside out to deal with the next interdimensional threat. 

As it turns out, he looks pretty slick in the new Spider-threads with the prominent black fabric and gold accents. Shortly after his battle with Electro, Peter gets the suit cleaned, but it looks great in the moment.

The Spider-Man suit with gold nanotech inlays

The gold-integrated suit is one of the most highly anticipated Spidey suits fans have been waiting to see in action. The design was initially teased as part of a toy leak for "Spider-Man: No Way Home," and now that the movie's out, audiences can see what it's all about. 

This shiny suit is a bit of an elevation of Peter's upgraded suit with gold inlays from nanotech surrounding his chest and shoulders. It gives him the much-needed boost in power he needs to take on all of these previously-seen Spider-Man villains. And surprisingly, it's actually in the movie for quite a while. The suit first makes an appearance when Spidey and friends are at Happy Hogan's (Jon Favreau) condo. He then takes the suit with him to the final battle at the Statue of Liberty, where he stands out in a sleek manner compared to the suits worn by Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire's Spider-Men.

Peter's homemade Spider-Man suit

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" has what might just be the most devastating ending of any MCU film so far. Before more bad guys can break into their universe, Peter Parker has Doctor Strange perform a spell to make the world forget he exists. As a result, MJ (Zendaya), Ned (Jacob Batalon), and Happy will lose all of their memories of him. It's a poignant moment and one that exemplifies what the Spider-Man persona is all about. His entire philosophy centers around sacrificing what he truly wants for the betterment of the world. 

The last time we see Peter, he has his apartment and is studying for the G.E.D. However, he hasn't hung up his Spider-Man suit just yet. He may no longer have access to all of Tony's gear, but he's pretty proficient with a sewing machine. The last sequence sees him jumping out of his apartment window wearing a new, homemade suit he designed. He's stuck with the red and blue palette from previous costumes, and it looks like he'll officially be on his own in any future franchise installments. Hey, the title wasn't lying when it said there was "no way home" for Peter.
