Okay, I have avoided to this point, posting anything related to the new Spider-man movie in development because 1. I’m a huge Spidey fan and could easily let the site slip into something 75% related to Spider-man, and 2. I’ve been on the fence regarding this movie. Yes, the teenage Peter Parker sounds good, as there is plenty of stories and angst there. Gwen Stacey is always good as if you’re going to tell the story of Spider-man you really can’t leave her out. My hold up has been how they were going to present the story. The picture they released today, of the first look of the new Spider-man suit, doesn’t help me in that regard as its obvious they’ve taken liberties on how they’re presenting the costume.
Below is the newly released picture of Andrew Garfield in the new Spider-man suit, sans the mask, showing some of the changes, including the gloves and lack of belt, both I’m not sold on as Spidey’s red and blues are as iconic as Superman’s.
You’ll also notice an update to the spider emblem on his chest. This doesn’t bother me, I actually like the look of it. Below is my poor and quick attempt at a duplication of the emblem. (Hard to tell the true design from the cuts in the costume and the dark nature of the picture)
One thing I can say that I like this over the Spider-man suits of the previous movies, that that the webbing is not raised, or at least not how it was in those movies. In that regard, I like the costume.
Below are two desktop wallpapers I made playing with the new emblem, just for fun.
What’s your opinion of what they’ve shown us of the newest Spidey suit?
