Tom Holland made his debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. The young Peter Parker was recruited by Iron Man to participated in the airport battle against Captain America’s side of the Avengers.
Having fought the good fight, Spider-Man was sent home by Iron Man, but fans got another glimpse at Peter at home in his room in a post-credits scene. The scene showed Peter Parker pressing a button on his web-shooter that activated a Spider-Man logo hologram that spread across his ceiling.
Besides simply being a neat special effect, it has remained unclear what the function of this hologram was. Luckily, Spider-Man: Homecoming producer Eric Hauserman Carroll was able to clear that up during a set visit, saying that it was part of an interface on Spider-Man’s web-shooters.
“One of the ideas is that when he does this [movement] he can adjust the spray, and he can even scroll through different web settings, like spinning web, web ball, ricochet web… you know, all of the stuff we can see him do in the comics, Tony has built into this,” Caroll said. “That was sort of unlocked for him. So when he shines that, it will go [boom noise], and if he wants to shoot just the one swinging web, it will go down really small. And if he wants to web a guy to the wall, it goes [makes noise] and goes like that. It’s kind of like a DSLR camera. He can shoot without it, or he can hold that thing a second, get his aiming right, and really choose a web to shoot.”
The interface may be related to Spider-Man’s JARVIS tech, which sounds neat. It isn’t quite as advanced as the voice activated web-shooter technology Spider-Man has created for himself in the current run of Amazing Spider-Man, but it's probably a lot more fun to watch on a movie screen.
