MTV’s Splash Page has released a clear shot of the new Spider-man suit from the reboot. I’m sorry, buy my first reaction to this is that the mask makes me think of the old Japanese Spider-man show where he had a Power Rangers like robot. I love the fact that he has web-shooters (yes I’m sticking to that belief until told otherwise). I’m hoping small things like the red lenses and what looks like tennis shoes are just elements for the stunt suit and not actual elements of the actual suit that we’ll see, but at this point, with all the liberties they’ve taken with the suit already, who knows.
I had been optimistic with all the blurry shots up to this point, keeping faith that the look of the mask would win me over. For me, its failed. I’m a huge Spidey fan, and to me, this isn’t Spider-man.
Check out Splash Page with a few close ups of the mask and web-shooters, and below for the opening to the aforementioned Japanese Spider-man show.
After the videos and pictures that came out yesterday, Comingsoon.net posted a new video of the same scene but slight closer and different angle. That video has given us a couple more looks at the new costume.
From the pictures above, we can see that the “belt” comes around from the back and down the side and back of the thigh. The red also seems to extend down the back of his arm to the elbow. Is it possible we could have some sort of symbol beside the classic spider symbol on Spider-man’s back? One that extends down the arms and legs?

First Look: The NEW Spider-man suit and emblem
Okay, these have been all over the web today, where people caught a glimpse of some filming going on in LA, where Spider-man is running through traffic to jump into the back of a moving pickup. First off, I’ve seen people ask why is he running and not swinging. Well, if you go by the basis that he is using mechanical web shooters (like me) then you’ll probably expect at some point for him to run out of web fluid, and if you’re Spidey without web fluid, what’s the next best chance to get somewhere?
Another thing we get to see is what appears to be a few more details in terms of what the new costume will look like. Judging by the picture below, the back of the costume is somewhat different at the shoulders, now angling up towards the neck in the middle. There also appears to be blue fingers on the gloves, and some red going down the outside of the thigh (possibly connecting in the back, where the “belt” used to be? At least one thing seems to be the same to this point, and that seems to be the boots seem to still be that way they normally are. Also, I’m aware this shows him in a mask, and it appears to be more towards the “small eyes” version, but I do not believe this is what the mask will look like in the end. I’m going to assume that this is a stunt double wearing one of the costumes, and the mask has smaller eye holes, ones that are covered, to allow him to do his stunts. (Notice how the filming is from behind and doesn’t ever truly get his face.)
Here are some other shots that have popped up on the web, including a Daily Bugle van, and a sign possibly hinting to something related to the Lizard.
