Spider-Man Likes Mechanical Devices

Last week’s reveal of the “Spider-Man” costume also revealed a potential change to the nature of the character to bring him more in line with the comics – mechanical webshooters.

Talking with MTV News, actress Emma Stone confirmed that “it’s a device” in regards to the metallic objects seen attached to Peter Parker’s wrists in the official photo that premiered last week.

Sam Raimi’s films featuring the character had the webshooters be organic creations that came about as the result of the spider bite mutation. The comics have reportedly employed both techniques at different points.
