With the most recent Spider-Man Homecoming trailer, we got a pretty decent look at some of the cool high-tech gadgetry in Peter Parker's new suit, much of which was inspired by the comics. But apparently there's a whole lot more going on inside.

As you might expect from something designed by Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.), the new Spidey suit is fitted with a JARVIS-like artificial intelligence. According to co-producer Eric Carroll, the AI system communicates through a voice inside Spider-Man's mask. And it definitely takes Peter (Tom Holland) some getting used to, which appears to be a big source of comic relief.  

While Paul Bettany has famously voiced JARVIS (and Vision) in the MCU films, there's no word yet on who will provide the chatter inside Peter's head. But whoever it is, he or she may have a hard time getting Peter to follow directions.

That may be a big part of the reason why Tony has also given the suit a "training wheels" protocol, which won't allow Peter to fully access all the suit's wizardry. But Peter isn't the type to just be told no, and he attempts to hack in.    

So far, the two trailers have shown off quite the array of gadgetry, including web wings, holographic mapping and surveillance-gathering spiders. But according to IGN, there's even more, including a parachute, a heater, airbags and the ability to light up. And because Tony doesn't exactly believe his young friend understands the great responsibility that comes with great power, the suit also has a tracking device. 

That may be how Tony arrives just in the nick of time to save that ferry from splitting in half in the new trailer below. After which, Stark is compelled take the suit back altogether. But do the clothes ultimately make the Spider-Man? We shall see when Spider-Man: Homecoming finally hits theaters July 7.
