Including first good glance of the spider emblem on the back, and a closer look at the boots.
Comingsoon.net has posted some close-up shots of the new Spider-man costume from the filming in LA from On Location News. These new shots give us a clearer picture of the mask, the back of the costume and the boots.
After looking at these pictures, it appears that the webbing is somewhat raised or at least reflective from the shots, especially from the lighting on the mask. We have our first real glace of the spider emblem on the back of his costume, or the lack there of, as it appears they’ve just duplicated the black spider emblem from the front rather then have the classic red emblem help break up the solid blue of the back. (Hate this change) We also get more looks at the boots, and they continue to look like they are wrestling boots to me.
I’m still up in the air on this costume. Some of the simple changes I was able to live with, like the red down the leg, but taking out the red spider emblem from the back? That takes away one of the more iconic images of Spider-man. When he’s swinging away from you, you see that big red spider on his back, and now with this new costume, you no longer have that. Out of all the changes they’ve made, I think this is the biggest mistake thus far. Check out a few pictures below, and check out Comingsoon’s coverage from the link above.
