Ever since the release of Tim Burton’s Batman Returns in 1992, we as a movie-going audience have grown accustomed to seeing superheroes undergo costume changes from movie to movie, be they minor alterations or radical overhauls.
While Peter Parker’s onscreen costumes have had a connective thread in regard to visual similarities over the past fourteen years, we may see a few surprises in what has to be my most anticipated film from Marvel Studios in 2017, Spider-Man: Homecoming.
MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB
The folks over at ComicBook.com recently caught up with director Jon Watts, who stated something a bit obvious, yet quite intriguing:
“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?”
That actually does raise a good point. Aside from the contracting lenses we saw in Captain America: Civil War, I’m most interested to see what other capabilities Spidey’s suit possesses. While I’m not expecting him to go full Iron Spider as he has in the comic books or on the animated series Ultimate Spider-Man, it will be nice to see some variety to help differentiate Homecoming from the previous five solo outings, even though they existed in separate continuities.
Watts also discussed how Spider-Man compares to Iron Man in the grand scheme of the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
“I think of it as the ground floor, like, if the Avengers tower is like the penthouse, and we know what it’s like to be a millionaire billionaire playboy or whatever, to be Tony or what its like to be a God on another planet, like, that’s the penthouse level of the MCU. Spider-Man is the ground floor. Like what does it look like, what does a high school in the MCU look like, what does riding the subway in the MCU feel like. Spider-Man seems like the perfect opportunity because he’s the most relatable regular person in the cannon that I thought he was a great chance to just show what that angle of the MCU looks like.”
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
