Spider-Man’s ‘Homecoming’ Suit Has Its Own J.A.R.V.I.S. AI Interface

The latest iteration of the Spider-Man suit that will be seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming is going to have its own AI interface, courtesy of Stark Industries.

Where does Spider-Man get all his wonderful toys in his next movie (Spider-Man: Homecoming)? Evidently, Stark Industries – according to the team working on the movie, Tony Stark left a lot of surprising gadgets inside the suit the web-head was last seen wearing in Captain America: Civil War.

Co-producer Eric Carroll explained that there’s something of a “training wheels” protocol hidden within the Spider-Man suit’s technical interface that prevents the hero from using the entirety of his arsenal at first. (Presumably, this would suggest that the scenes shown at Washington, D. C. take place late into the movie.) Once the training wheels are off, however, Spider-Man will have to contend with a chatty AI like Stark’s J.A.R.V.I.S. and F.R.I.D.A.Y. – and as it turns out, it’s a lot harder to operate than Stark makes it look.

He does [have a talking AI], which surprises him… He doesn’t until Tony deactivates [the Training Wheels protocol], so the suit starts doing a bunch of stuff. You know, it does a holographic interface, and things like that. But probably most notably, it starts talking to him, and he goes, ‘Oh, this is weird.’ And he starts asking it stuff, but he’s not super slick or Tony Stark smart, who invented the OS and did all this. He’s a kid.

The voice actor for Spider-Man’s AI (who we hope is called B.E.N.) has not been revealed just yet. Also among Spider-Man’s gadgets are web-shooters that can blast different types of webbing, different types of vision goggles a Spider-Tracer drone, and, of course, the Spider-Signal.

While some might be disappointed that Peter Parker has only made the essential parts of his gadgets (the web-shooters and the adjustable one-way lenses) and Stark has designed other features when Parker typically is the one to make his own gear, this development makes a good amount of sense. Given that a portion of the movie will feature Parker in his prototype Spider-Man costume, the movie will have an opportunity to show how effective a fighter this version of Spider-Man is when he’s unable to rely on his secondary gadgets.

Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017. The film features a cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Robert Downey Junior as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Zendaya Coleman as Michelle, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Tony Revolori as “Flash” Thompson, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Jon Favreau as Harold “Happy” Hogan, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes (Vulture), Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz (Shocker), and Michael Chernus as Phineas Mason (Tinkerer). A sequel is planned for release on July 5, 2019.
