Spider-Man: Homecoming introduced a lot of exciting new elements of the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and just when we thought we’d seen them all, we got a new design for Tony Stark’s second version of the Spider-Man costume, teased for fans in the final moments of Homecoming.
Well, ever since then, there’s been a lot of fan speculation about which Marvel Comics costumes that new Spider-Man suit may be based on, amidst calls for Marvel to release an official up-close look at the suit, which many expect we’ll see in full on the battlefield, during the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
Today, we can help with at least the latter portion of those fan wishes, with a much better look at the new Spider-Man suit.
It’s still a little too different from what I’m used to seeing but It’ll grow on me I’m sure pic.twitter.com/Ntuann831d

This Tweet by @Marvel_Freshman is said to have originated on Tumblr, and was supposedly taken from the VFX company that designed the actual suit for Spider-Man: Homecoming. While we’re still confirming the authenticity of the his image, it does, in fact, depict the suit seen at the end of Homecoming in much greater detail. Which we can discuss here.
The suit is pretty much like the Stark costume Peter Parker wore during most of Homecoming – albeit with a metallic/armored overlay, which obviously highlights Iron Man’s influence in the design. The color scheme is the most conspicuous thing about it, as the red, silver, and blue color scheme makes this suit look like it could stand along with the Iron Patriot armor that Rhodey wore in Iron Man 3, and will likely be the biggest point of contention amongst die-hard fans.
