If you haven’t seen Spider-Man: Homecoming yet, there are possible spoilers ahead for you!
Just, you know, be careful.
A large part of the core concept for Spider-Man: Homecoming was that oh-so common adolescent feeling of wanting to be treated as an adult, or railing against adult authority, of adults saying that they know better, have lived through what you’re currently going through and that they have your best interests at heart. There’s that whole thing of “we’ve been through this and know what’s best, just take these steps and you’ll get there” vs. “I’m 16 years old and I know just as much as you just please trust me.”
However, once one finally achieves being treated like an adult — it’s not always all it’s cracked up to be. That was one of the central lessons of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Peter Parker wanted to be trusted, wanted to be treated like the hero he knew he was and could be, but in going through that process, he learned there’s still a lot for him to learn and that, maybe, just maybe, being an adult isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
A very large part of that lesson can be wrapped up by the ending, where he’s brought to the new Avengers compound in Northern New York. There, Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.), the adult who’s approval Peter Parker (Tom Holland) had been seeking this whole time, finally gives him the respect and attention he believed he deserved the entire time. And, as full proof of that, he offers him the suit of suits — the Iron Spider suit. Who even knows how many web combinations this suit has!
But Peter Parker has learned his lesson — he’s not quite ready for that suit, and he turns it down. Along with this, he says no to full-on joining the Avengers. He’d rather keep his head low and fight the blue collar fights of his smaller neighborhood.
The Iron Spider suit, however, is still there, it’s still available, and the Avengers: Infinity War footage from San Diego Comic Con proves that Peter Parker will eventually get that suit for himself to fight the threat of Thanos after he comes to earth.
If you haven’t seen the movie, then look no further; however, if you have, and you want to see a high-res photo of the Iron Spider Suit that Stark built for young Parker, online magazine, The Art of VFX, did an interview with the Homecoming VFX Director, Dominik Zimmerle at Trixter Studios. As part of their interview, they ran a high-res picture of the suit and we’ve got it below.
He has two cats and knows all things about Doctor Strange but little else.
