Peter Parker will be taking a lot of cues from Tony Stark when he returns to theaters in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Not only will the Armored Avenger be mentoring Parker, showing the young hero how the ins-and-outs of being a super-powered protector, but he’ll also he supporting some of the tech he uses.
Spider-Man will be sporting Web Wings, a Spider Tracer, and now we’ve learned he’ll even have his very own JARVIS.
Iron Man’s AI-turned-Infinity Stone possessing superhero will make a return in Spider-Man: Homecoming, though it won’t be the exact same as the Paul Bettany-voiced construct.
As learned by ScreenRant, Stark’s version of the Spider-Man costume will have many different features that are locked away behind the ‘Training Wheels’ protocol, meant to guide Parker through some baby steps on his way to becoming a full-fledged hero.
Asked if Spider-Man’s costume will feature a voice speaking to him inside the mask, producer Eric Carroll responded positively.
“He does. Which surprises him, because he doesn’t until Tony deactivates that… deactivates the [Training Wheels] protocol,” Carroll said. “So the suit starts doing a bunch of stuff. You know, it does a holographic interface, and things like that.”
But while Tony has honed his AI bantering skills to a fine art, to the point where he can bicker back and forth with both JARVIS and FRIDAY, Peter Parker doesn’t quite know how to deal with the situation.
“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,” Carroll elaborated. “So he’s like, ‘Um, how do I get to where that thing is?’ And it’s like, ‘Um, I don’t know. Pretty much drive? How are you going to get there?’ And he’s like, ‘Um, if I didn’t have a car, let’s just say, how would I get there?’ And it’s like, ‘Well, if you walk…’ And he’s like, ‘No, OK, alright… I guess just give me directions and I’ll figure out the HOW I’m getting there.’”
It sounds like another humorous hurdle for Spider-Man to get over on his path toward full-time Avenging.
