Spider-Man: Homecoming Set Photo Offers Better Look At Web-Shooters


Atlanta Filming has posted several close-up shots of the new and improved web-shooters that Tom Holland's wearing on the Spider-Man: Homecoming set.

Every time there's a new iteration of Spider-Man, fans debate whether or not the web-shooters should be mechanical or organic. You can make a solid case for either one. As we already know from his debut in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland's Web-Head created mechanical web-shooters and the synthetic webbing they discharge.

Personally, I always liked the idea of blending the mechanical and the organic. I see the benefit of having Peter Parker develop his own mechanical web-shooters, showing off his inventiveness and scientific aptitude; however, since he's infused with spider-like abilities, I also like the idea of him producing the webbing organically.

Though, you could make the case that the synthetic webbing -- aside from showing once again how smart Peter truly is -- makes Spider-Man more vulnerable since he wouldn't have an endless supply of webbing. And that's a good thing. You want your heroes to have limitations. It makes them much more interesting.

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Marvel Studios' Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Simpson), Michael Mando (Better Call Saul), Selenis Leyva (Orange is the New Black), Isabella Amara (The Boss), Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. (Graceland), JJ Totah (Liv and Maddie), and Hannibal Buress (30 Rock).
