Throughout Spider-Man’s live action adventures, there has always been one element from his costume that has been missing: the classic underarm webbing as seen in artist Steve Ditko’s designs of the first Spider-Man comics. That is about to change, though, as Marvel has revealed Spider-Man will get a suit upgrade that will include the underarm webbing in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
This was announced in Sao Paulo, Brazil at Comic Con Experience 2016 where Marvel held a panel. Marvel’s own Vice President and Executive Director of Digital Media Ryan Penagos was in attendance and live tweeted the panel, describing a clip from Homecoming. The scene seems to take place from Spidey’s point of view as he’s talking with Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan and then Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark opens up a briefcase with an upgrade for the webslinger. The next scene shows Spider-Man leaping off a building and revealing the ‘web wings’.
There's a case from Tony Stark with an "upgrade" for Spidey. Then we see Spidey leap off a building, open his arms, web wings! #ccxp2016 2/?

What do you think about this? Are you excited to see Ditko’s classic design incorporated into the film or were you happy with with Spider-Man looked in Captain America: Civil War?
Meanwhile, a new poster for Homecoming has also been teased…
