One thing that Marvel Cinematic Universe has done fairly well is actually make Peter Parker’s homemade suit look relatively homemade. Rather than slowly have the badass suit come out of the blue, with no real explanation, the cool suit is tech made by Tony Stark. Personally, I like it.
It’s realistic and it’s believable. But not every aspect is believable. If you’ll notice, in his homemade suit, Peter’s goggles are ridiculously expressive. Speaking with visual effects supervisor Theo Bialek, Screen Rant ask how they could justify that being made by a teenager.
“Didn’t really [laughs]. The iris shield – I think that was one of the things that I feel that Marvel brought to us. You wanna keep your relatable and be able to emote and I think that that was the mechanism for it, regardless of the suit. Look, when he has the hood and you can’t see his face, you still want to be able to have him emote and get those laughs or the subtlty and the expression that you don’t have when he has a mask on – if you have iris-closing eye shields you can simulate that. So I think that was the prime focus of that.”
So there you have it. It’s not quite the believable tech we hoped it would be, but rather an attempt to keep the character relatable even with his mask on. Ultimately, it was probably a good move, especially since the third act consists of Peter almost exclusively in that suit.
What do you think? Was this a good move from the filmmakers? Let us know down below!
