By now you’ve probably seen the Stark upgrades to Spidey’s suit (web wings!) (opens in new tab)but Spider-Man: Homecoming (opens in new tab) will also include the webhead having one last Tony-designed trick up its sleeve. Or more like on his sleeve.

Marvel have sneakily released a video on Twitter detailing Spidey’s getup. Spider-Man is stylin’ and profilin’ and now he has a GPS tracking system with a holographic display. Eat your heart out, Uber.

Spider-Man has previous for trackers – think the Spider-Tracer-Tracker from the animated series – but Tony Stark has given Peter Parker a nifty upgrade for the 21st Century. Now there’s no chance of baddies finding the tracker and thinking ‘Gee, I wonder who left this giant spider tracker here?’ It was never Spidey’s smartest design choice.

A GPS tracking system with a holographic display maybe isn’t the best thing to give to a teenage boy but, hey, who am I to judge?

Directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei and Donald Glover, Spider-Man: Homecoming will hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
