Iron Man Reveals Reason Behind Spider-Man’s ‘Avengers’ Iron Spider Suit

Tony Stark was working on ideas for the Iron Spider costume shortly after 'Captain America: Civil War'.

A new book exploring the Marvel Cinematic Universe reveals why Iron Man built the Iron Spider suit for Spider-Man before Avengers: Infinity War.

Since his MCU debut back in 2016, Spider-Man has already donned a number of different versions of his iconic red and blue costume thanks to being taken under Iron Man’s wing in Captain America: Civil War. Now that filming on Spider-Man 3 is underway, it wouldn’t be surprising if Peter Parker gets yet another costume for his third outing in the MCU. But a new book reveals the inspiration behind the impressive Iron Spider costume that Tony Stark built for the young hero.

The Wakanda Files explores the MCU through the eyes of a researcher working for Black Panther’s Shuri. It reveals that Iron Man began building the Iron Spider costume immediately after the Berlin fight with Captain America, when he was researching nanoparticles. First, Stark upgraded the Wall-Crawler’s web-shooters and redesigned them to create their own web fluid before adding a life-support system in his costume – which would definitely come in handy for Avengers: Infinity War. The hero was also given an upgraded Heads Up Display (HUD) from his initial Stark Suit.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
