Spidey’s suit in Spider-man: Homecoming has its own version of JARVIS

April 3rd, 2017 by Marc Comments

So we have already met Tom Holland’s Spider-man in Captain America: Civil War and we know that Tony Stark built his spidey-suit.

Which, irks us a little as Peter Parker is a genius himself, but we thought we’d go with it.

Then we saw in the second trailer for Spider-man: Homecoming that Stark would punish Peter by taking the suit from him (here) and now we have another bit of Tony Stark/Iron Man related news… the suit will have its own version of JARVIS.

Wut? Does Sony own the rights to Spider-man’s Spider-sense?!


Remember at the end of Civil War we saw Peter Parker lying on his bed, trying to unlock the secrets within his new suit? Well, it seems the suit, according to co-producer Eric Carroll , has some ‘training wheels’.

“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. 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.’”

So the suit has a JARVIS-like voice built in. And it’s not FRIDAY either. According to Carroll it’s a secret of sorts who will voice this new AI: “We don’t know yet. Uncast, no. Well, sort of. But not official.”

We’re not sure how we feel about this. Is the new suit the Iron Spider from the comics? We think it’s halfway there already… we honestly don’t think the shot needs AI, Peter shouldn’t need anything like that but, hey, what do we know?

What do you all think?

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened. Directed by Jon Watts. Produced by Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal. Screenplay by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley and Jon Watts & Christopher Ford and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, Based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
