Close-ups of the New Spider-man Costume


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.

First Look: The NEW Spider-man suit and emblem


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.
