‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Director Explains Why MCU Spidey Doesn’t Have Spider Sense

“We didn’t really lean into that as hard as they have in the previous films,” says director Jon Watts

It looks like Spider-Man’s spider sense won’t be tingling in “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Director Jon Watts has revealed that the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Peter Parker won’t have on of Spidey’s most prominent and unique powers.

In an interview with Cinemablend, Watts told the outlet, “I feel like we have seen a lot of Spider Sense in the previous films, so we didn’t really lean into that as hard as they have in the previous films. But I do think it is a really interesting thing to explore.”

That means there won’t be any tingling at the base of Spidey’s skull to warn of impending danger.

It makes sense considering audiences have already been introduced to two live-action versions of the wall crawler in the past. In order to bring a fresh take on the web slinger, a number of new elements will be added to the newest version of the classic Marvel Comics hero, including an alteration to his power set.

As we saw in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man debut in Anthony and Joe Russo’s “Captain America: Civil War,” as well as in the upcoming movie’s featurettes and trailers, Tony Stark gives Peter a special suit that not only comes with its own J.A.R.V.I.S. system but also imbues Peter with several abilities, such as GPS tracking, web bombs and even a heater in case it gets cold.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” opens in theaters July 7.
