Spider-Man received a pretty snazzy upgrade in Captain America: Civil War, courtesy of Tony Stark. Due the superhero's brief role in the film, however we didn't get to explore all brand new suit's trinkets. That's what solo movies are for, and fortunately, we'll have the time to do just that in #SpiderManHomecoming.
With the movie's second trailer, #Marvel gave us our first look at several of Peter Parker's envy-inducing new gadgets, which included a holographic map of New York City and a handy Spider-tracer...
While those are pretty impressive, turns out, they're not all that came with Tony Stark's upgrade to the wall-crawler's suit. Thanks to Screen Rant's visit to the Homecoming set, we know about an unexpected (and frankly awesome) addition to the high-tech suit:
Spider-Man Will Have His Very Own J.A.R.V.I.S.
Turns out, #PeterParker will have his very own A.I. to help him in action (you know, before Tony Stark takes the suit away from him and gives him the equivalent of a superhero grounding). The feature will be locked behind a learning program Tony Stark created called "Training Wheels." I mean, that's understandable when you're giving a superpowered child a suit that can enhance his already scary abilities.
When asked about whether this new version of J.A.R.V.I.S. would have a voice, film's co-producer, Eric Carroll, replied:
"He does. He does. Which surprises him, because he doesn’t until Tony deactivates the [Training Wheels] protocol. So the suit starts doing a bunch of stuff. You know, it does a holographic interface, and things like that."
In Age of Ultron, Tony switched to F.R.I.D.A.Y. as a replacement for J.A.R.V.I.S. (who was busy being the newly-created android, Vision). So, could we expect F.R.I.D.A.Y. in Peter's head or will the billionaire playboy create a different artificial travel buddy for him? Unfortunately, we don't know the answer to that just yet, but what we do know, however, is that...
Peter Parker Will Face A Hilarious Challenge
Despite his remarkable intelligence, don't expect #Spidey to be as savvy as Iron Man when it comes to A.I. companions. According to Carroll, a hilarious scene will be dedicated to the young hero having trouble understanding what to do with the his new tech:
"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.’
That right there, ladies and gentlemen, is a perfect #SpiderMan moment.
Anyway, who could we expect to voice this new version of the trusted digital butler? Well, Carroll stated:
"We don’t know yet. Uncast, no. Well, sort of. But not official."
That sounds interesting. With such a mystery, it could be that Spidey's in line to have the voice of a celebrity stuck in his head.

The addition of an helping A.I. hand for Peter Parker - who's known for swinging solo, at least in his earlier years - might be uncomfortable for some fans. But if we think about it, it's a natural progression of the character. #TonyStark is his mentor, and considering his love for tech, it's only natural he'd provide him with a suit full of all sorts of benefits.
With that said, could there be any more hidden goodies in that suit? Yes. As was revealed:
"It [includes] the hologram interface which allows its user to control the types of projects the web-shooters can launch; special vision modes [and] built-in suit lights/glow."
