The Iron Spider suit has been a fan-favorite ever since it first appeared during Mark Millar’s Civil War comic book event. At the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming fans got a glimpse of a new suit that seemed to have taken inspiration from Iron Spider’s metallic sheen. As we’ve seen in the trailer, that suit will be in action during Avengers: Infinity War. However, a closer look reveals that the MCU suit is borrowing more than just a shine from the source material.
Twitter user @itsdxvid has posted this look at a Spider-Man statue from Infinity War:

The statue shows off the spider legs taken directly from the Iron Spider costume from the comics. In the comics, the legs were used for traversal as well as protection. The concept made their return during Dan Slott’s Superior Spider-Man series, which saw Doctor Octopus take over Peter Parker’s body and assume his duties as Spider-Man. This new addition will certainly make Spider-Man a force to be reckoned with once he goes toe-to-toe with Thanos and his followers in Avengers: Infinity War.
