In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Peter Parker (played by Tom Holland) is an aloof, working-class boy genius in Queens who just had the time of his life last spring in Captain America: Civil War. Now, in his upcoming solo movie Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spidey gets a few neat upgrades from Mr. Tony Stark. In a new teaser for the trailer that’s dropping on Tuesday, we learn that Spidey’s chest emblem is a working drone.
Homecoming, which hits theaters July 7, takes place after the universe-altering events of Civil War. True to its title, the film sees Peter Parker adjusting back to his normal, humdrum life as the neighborhood Spider-Man after webbing rogue Avengers in Germany. But it’s not all boring: Under Tony Stark’s mentorship (and fat bank account), Spider-Man gets a few cutting-edge upgrades. His suit, which came courtesy of Stark, gives Spidey his signature web-wings and apparently this new flying drone that also serves as his chest emblem when it’s not buzzing about.
Spidey isn’t a stranger to tech upgrades for his costume; his web-shooters were his own high-tech design, after all. In the current Amazing Spider-Man comics run, writer Dan Slott has Peter Parker embracing his new, luxurious life as a tech billionaire who has no problems using his wealth to outfit his Spider-Man with all the latest gadgets and gizmos. But this chest drone? That’s new.
See the six-second teaser below, which hypes another new trailer arriving on Tuesday.
