One of the most exciting aspects of Avengers: Infinity War is Spider-Man becoming a full-fledged Avenger. At the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming fans were treated to a sneak peak of the Iron Spider suit that has been prominently featured in the Infinity War trailers. During an interview with Comicbook.com, Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man, talked about his experience shooting the Iron Spider scenes for the film.
When asked what it was like to wear the new costume, Holland quickly clarified that he was never actually in the suit:
“It doesn’t actually exist in real life. I never actually wore an Iron Spider suit. I wore a mo-cap suit because the suit has capabilities and things that we just can’t recreate in real world. Also, I don’t know if they finalized the design yet and how they wanted it to look on screen so when they do it in a mo-cap suit they have the luxury of changing whatever they want, however they want.”
This doesn’t come as too much of a surprise, as the character does look particularly computer-animated in the marketing materials for the film. Still, the suit is very impressive and really pops on the screen. We have yet to get a look at the suit’s mechanical spider arms. Hopefully, all this new tech will be enough to keep Peter safe in the battle against Thanos.
Here is the synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War:
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.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner and Paul Rudd.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters April 27, 2018.
10 Characters That Need To Be Avengers In Marvel’s Phase Four
Avengers: Infinity War arrives this year, and will be followed by a currently untitled fourth Avengers film that will close off Phase 3 and will mark a new chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Phase 4 it is safe to say audiences will meet a new roster of the Avengers.
Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America have been the pillars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since its inception, as their individual films have guided lead audiences into each Avengers film. But with the next two Avengers film it is safe to say the curtain will set for those three. That means the Avengers as audiences know them will change dramatically. This means the team will need some new members, ones that will make a big impression to fill the shoes of their predecessors.
While the status of other founding members like the Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and more up in the air right now, part of the fun in the Avengers comics is the ever-changing roster. The latest roster for the Avengers needs to make a statement. This isn’t the same old Avengers, this is the beginning of a new chapter. Some characters should be upgraded, others will take center stage as the new tentpole franchises, and the Avengers will be new.
