Below is a collection of some of the photos that have popped up online this week from the Spider-man reboot currently filming in LA. If nothing else, I have to say that the shots of Spidey swinging, really begins to sell me on at least the action sequences that this film will have. Lets continue to hope for the best! If anyone comes up with additional photos, feel free to post below, and we can week a running collection.
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.
