    Uh…Please tell me it’s supposed to be the proto suit? Akin to the wrestling costume in the first Raimi film? To

  2. #2 Daniel says:

    Hopefully from early on in the film from wrestling days….. :S

    I like the colors. Glad there’s no shiny webbing, as I thought that was too distracting.

    There needs to be more defined web patterns in it. Looks too scruffy. Need the mask too. If they for a minute pull the “Let’s take off my mask during a fight!” again, I will walk out of the theater.

    Skinny, Steve-Ditko-Style Body: OK
    Looking sad, the weight of the world on his shoulders: OK
    Costume: Look Tim and Daniel

    Hope dies last……..

    Link to a larger picture so you can see the detail:

    And that costume’s awful.

  6. #6 Tim says:

    If u look at the back his wrists closely, you can see webshooters. Zoom in and it’s easier to see. I like the material, but I don’t like the design. The logo and how it goes down to his junk to be honest. Then again, it’s clearly after a beat-down, so who knows.

  7. #7 Tim says:

    After looking at this in HQ, I’m starting to dig it. Here’s a larger version with the webshooters more visible.

  8. #8 Tim says:

    Damn, George beat me to it 😛

  9. #9 venomaniac says:

    Different…but I like it

  10. #10 Two-Bit Specialist says:

    I think it looks great. When they were going on about the costume looking like a boy in his room did it, I was concerned, but this is honestly looking good.

    I just don’t understand some of you guys sometimes.

  11. #11 Sthenurus says:

    Remind me a bit of the “House of M” costume. But the costume pointing toward his… thing… Did he got inspiration from one of those “the man/the Legend” shirts ?

  12. #12 ChaosInc says:

    I like it.

    Is it perfect? No it can’t be since it’s impossible to make the comic come to life but I think it looks damn cool. To me it’s easily recognisable as Spider-Man with lots of neat little touches that say “this could work in real life”.

    The no mask thing doesn’t bother me in this pic as he has a backpack so it’s clear he’s either taking off the costume or putting it on. If he take it off at the end fight I will be pissed though.

  13. #13 Captain Cheesesteak says:

    I don’t hate it I don’t love it.
    I think it’s weird that it’s the same kinda material that the other spidey suits were made from. I’ll hafta see if this grows on me, but I really liked the Maguire suits, they ciulda just made the eyes bigger if they wanted a fresher look.

  14. #14 Stephen Spideysteuk says:

    ok looking at suit it in detail, the spider has been slashed,

    it looks ok, just need a trailer before we make any decision

  15. #15 George Berryman says:

    “I just don’t understand some of you guys sometimes.”

    In life you’ll find that some of the other 6.8 billion people on Earth will agree with you while others, shockingly, may not.

    I don’t like the chest design. Yes, it’s slashed, but you can still see the basic spider design and I don’t find it pleasing. I *hate* the glove design.

  16. #16 Stuart Green says:

    Okay, let me get this out of the way:

    Andrew Garfield looks GREAT — as PETER PARKER. Seriously, he looks so much like the Spectacular cartoon version of Peter, it’s scary. I’m also digging his hair in this picture compared to the previous photos with him and Gwen Stacy, where he looked like Edward Cullen as a homeless bum. I’m going to have to be sold on him being Spider-Man though, but hopefully he’ll do a Tobey Maguire and prove to me he’s perfect in the role.

    In regards to the web-shooters peeking out of the gloves a little, I can’t WAIT for those! I love the web-shooters! I actually missed them in Raimi’s movies. It’ll be a whole new ball game when “oh, crap, I’m outta webbing — not NOW!” situations kick in, but hopefully just once in a while and they don’t over do it.

    As for the Spider-Man suit itself… eh…

    It could be good, but so far, I’m not impressed. I am not digging the new web-pattern, as, like others have said, it’s not well-defined enough. This actually reminds me of the Superman Returns suit, with the patterns on the red and blue areas of the suit, and it’s driving me nuts. Also, the spider chest emblem with the dagger-point-shaped butt and long legs that go down the suit are more Ben Reilly suit than Peter Parker suit in my opinion. Also, it looks like either the belt is gone from the front and is only on the back or that maybe the back red spider emblem peeking through, as you can clearly see some red at the sides of his waist where the belt pattern of the suit would be.

    Also, I am genuinely nervous for the mask. I hope they go the John Romita Jr./Alex Ross “Marvels” mask route for the movie, and they don’t mess it up.

    I’m with Captain Cheesesteak: I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it. And since Spider-Man has THE best superhero costume in all of comics, that’s not a good thing. :(

    Oh, and one more thing: for the love of Stan Lee, I hope Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man MAKES SOME JOKES IN FIGHTS THIS TIME!!! Is that REALLY so much to ask?

  17. #17 BoWaverly Cross says:

    Hmm. Initial reactions are that it looks like an even younger Harry Osborn from the previous trilogy and that Spider-Man would NEVER be walking home from school in costume, but with his mask off. Then I realize not to take it TOO seriously and simply looking at what iconic subjects they decided to include along with some of the design choices, I have to admit that I will be staying tuned as a loyal Spidey Fan. However, I will not have the same excitement as I did for Day 1 of the first Spidey flick. Cheers!

  18. #18 Two-Bit Specialist says:

    @George – Look, I’m not here to start an argument. Just know that I don’t appreciate the condescending tone.

    I don’t mind that the suit is not “comic book perfect.” If they get one detail wrong that doesn’t really matter in the big scheme of things, it’s okay. It’s not automatically trash.

  19. #19 Extreme Spider says:

    I Agree With George The Spider bugs the crap out of me the gloves are alright but can be better

  20. #20 Josh (Venom65437) says:

    Do not like. :(

  21. #21 Ironspiderman1983 says:

    I know u can’t see me right now but I’m crying from pure sadness right now. For the 1st time since they announced this reboot I’m questioning whether or not I will go see this movie I’ve been disappointed on the reboot the cast and now this butt ugly costume if the trailer doesn’t THRILL me I might be done. And Ima guy who can get past a lot but I don’t think I can move passed this im going into this movie with low low low expectations right now.

  22. #22 Josh (Venom65437) says:

    I REALLY hate how the spider legs go allllllllllll the way down his stomach, and I don’t like the textures, or the patterns, or anything. Why mess with something that was already perfect? :(

  23. #23 jpd13 says:

    I like it, but nowhere near as much as the other movie costume which IMHO they nailed

  24. #24 Styleshift says:

    I don’t love or hate it. It’s clearly based off of the Ultimate Spider-man design.
    I accept that they had to do a few things different. I’ll reserve my final judgment for the full reveal.
    The Raimi films really set the standard for Comic to film superhero suits. I really didn’t expect them to do any better so I’m not really disappointed.
    I don’t think anyone can really get any worse than the X-men or Daredevil films have costume wise. =/

  25. #25 Zadom says:

    I like it. It looks like it will look good in a fight scene or web swinging scene. Doesn’t look like flannel pajamas but a genuine superhero costume. Every time a photo is posted, it seems a ton of people were just waiting to hate it.

  26. #26 Simon James says:

    OK. They couldn’t keep the same as the last films, so why people say about that is irrelevant really.
    I think it’s decent. I like how undefined it is – it looks more gritty. The only problem I have is the absence of the red “belt” around his waist. It misses it severely and with it would have looked like a cool new version of the classic costume. So that’s my only (big) complaint. But he looks great as Spider-Man.

  27. #27 Heartburn says:

    The costume looks close to what the House of M costume looks like. Part of me doesn’t mind the look but I hope they do some more work on it. On the other hand I mean… I of course expected the classic look.

    I have to see more and the costume still needs more work but besides that I’ll try to live with it.

  28. #28 Simon James says:

    Developing on my previous comment, just realised how poor the gloves are :/ So thats 2 improvements needed: belt and gloves.
    I can just see the mask being dead controversial..

  29. #29 Steerpike says:

    …yeah… no. The look of the costume says “trying too hard.” The Spider Symbol look a little like the “Tron Spidey” costume from the Big Tim arc (like with the spider design running all the way down to the stomach).

    Well I don’t hate it completely, though I’m not digging it too much. The Rami costume kept the classic set up while making it modern. So this, I don’t know. I might come around, but as it stands right now, I hope it is only his prototype suit. I will admit that he does look good as Peter, so that’s a plus. And the Web shooters are back. Not a plus nor a minus for me. I personally liked the organic webbing from the movies, but the shooters are true to the comic. Though the “I’m out of web fluid” set up can be seen from here.

    Btw, impossible to make the comic come to life? BAM!:

  30. #30 Donovan Grant says:

    I don’t think this image is NEARLY enough to start saying “This movie will suck, AND THIS IS WHY.” It’s mostly the same. They can’t eff up the mask either. I do wish the Spider-Belt was still there. I don’t give a **** about the gloves, they’re alright.

  31. #31 Tim says:

    …I just like that it has web-shooters… I’ll hold final judgment until we get a promo pic of the suit, untattered, in daylight, compete with mask.

    Still, my spidey-sense is telling me to be cautiously optimistic.

  32. #32 butters911 says:

    I like it. It looks more like one guy made it, unlike the old Spidey suit, which was clearly professionally made

  33. #33 Javi Trujillo says:

    what I don’t get is the “it looks like he coulda made it” remarks. Unfortunately, I feel as rich as Peter and I think that look costs a lot more than a needle and thread. To me, looks like he coulda made it would be what the majority of what people at cons wear.

  34. #34 DMaynor says:

    It looks like sh!t

  35. #35 CloneSaga says:

    I can almost deal with most of the changes but “no belt no Spider-Man”!!!

    The Maguire suit was perfect. I agree bigger eyes could have been a possible improvement on the old costume.
    It’s refreshing to see a slim Spider-Man though.

  36. #36 crutch says:

    i am so dumb. i thought it was gonna be a picture of garfield the cat.

  37. #37 Kassady86 says:

    Doesn’t help that the suit is damaged in the first screen shot. I’m more worried about how the mask is gonna look…

  38. #38 Wolfie says:

    @ Steerpike

    LOL, the position of his right leg in the image you provided, looks like….oh nevermind. -_-;;

    Garfield in costume….actually not bad in my opinion. It could have been a lot worse and I think he captures Parker in this photo…especially if compared to the conclusion of Amazing Fantasy 15. But that’s just me…


  39. #39 Gerard Delatour II says:

    Well, that looks terrible. Hopefully, that’s an unfinished prototype costume a la the wrestling suit from the first Raimi movie.

  40. #40 hermann22 says:

    I really like this costume. I couldn’t stand the silver webbing in the first 3 films and I love how its back to the basics for the costume design.

  41. #41 Steerpike says:

    @ Wolfie – Lol. No It was my leg, don’t worry.

  42. #42 DPFW says:

    I don’t like it for the simple fact that it looks too professionally done. It doesn’t look like a costume a high schooler could cobble together in his bedroom. Now, if they could explain why it looks so “artsy”, then perhaps I’d buy it more (if I remember, they are going down the Ultimate route and I don’t read Ultimate Spider-man at all).

  43. #43 Enigma_2099 says:

    I liked Maguire AND the other suit better.


    I’m gonna reserve harsh, stinging judgment for when they take a pic of it undamaged, in daylight so we can see the d*** thing. WITH A MASK.

  44. #44 spidercat says:

    I wish they would stop changing the costume. I would be happy with the original one. Hollywood neds to keep things true to the book, instead of screwing things up by taking artistic licence.

  45. #45 Javi Trujillo says:

    well, it’s over. The movie is officially gonna suck. I showed my 4 year old daughter, who is getting married to the Tobey Maguire version of Peter Parker, this pic and she said she didn’t like it, with no provocation from her father. Out of the mouth of babes!

  46. #46 SpiderPlumber says:

    I’ll reserve judgement.
    Not excited about the costume…but it could be worse. Look at Green Lantern!

  47. #47 Captain Cheesesteak says:

    Maybe the new costume has no mask!

  48. #48 J.garrett says:

    I like it! feels more like spider-man then the mcquire suit.

  49. #49 George Berryman says:

    “Every time a photo is posted, it seems a ton of people were just waiting to hate it.”

    So if people don’t like it they should what… lie and say that they so Zadom won’t throw “haters gotta hate” at them? Or just not comment while anyone who does like it is more than free to do so on Planet Zadom?

  50. #50 Styleshift says:

    Hey, I just noticed that if you look VERY closely you can see that this version will utilize Web Shooters.
    There is a tiny metal slit on each wrist. I’m at least happy about that. :)

  51. #51 BD says:

    I think we’re jumping a bit at the webshooters. It could just be a slot that shoots the organic webs through the suit.

    I’m mixed on it. I don’t like the long red mid section that is shrunk and the lack of spider-belt. I’m also not crazy about the gloves. However, I understand they can’t copy the original movie suit because they need to sell more toys.

  52. #52 Hairychap says:

    ooh, I quite like this, glad to see the back of the raised metalic webbing. Moving my optimisim-ometer up to 7…..

  53. #53 ratpack223 says:


  54. #54 jpd13 says:

    Look by his left hip I see a little red. There may actually be a spider belt, but it could be covered because of some kind of battle damage.

  55. #55 jpd13 says:

    Also, I guess the claw marks would pretty much confirm that we’ll be seeing the Lizard

  56. #56 AbdulAziz says:

    Some people still haven’t shared their input
    The suit looks good, I felt the Maguire suit better until both suits were compared together, there are things I like about this one more, things I like more in Maguire suits. Eventually it’s a near tie
    Like the Ultimate guy, he’s carrying a bag on his back

  57. #57 Aspman says:

    My only real complaint is the “webs” on the costume don’t really look like webs, nore like vertical and horizontal lines, but may look better in the film.

  58. #58 Spideydude says:

    Was it me or did it get based off the Spider-Ben Costume and the Original? Especially with the lack of Spider Belt.

  59. #59 DiabeticSpidey says:

    The first thing I thought of when I saw the picture was the costume Ben wore, and the one Mayday wore. I really don’t like this suit, but I guess this is just the first image we’ve seen of it. This could be a prototype suit, which over the course of the movie may evolve closer to the one we’re used to….Hey, that explanation sounded good when I typed it.

  60. #60 Nat says:

    Let’s see…web-shooters, backpack, and the suit has kind of a new design. All and all i think this is awesome!

  61. #61 Spider-Girl says:

    Well, he’s scrawnier…like Puny Peter! I’m not as big a fan of this costume….

  62. #62 crutch says:

    man…. i hope it is the lizard. the lizard is my fav… by far!

  63. #63 Extreme Spider says:

    @ Spideydude If They Name Drop The Clone Saga You’re The First one in Line Aren’t cha? 8)

  64. #64 Spider-Dad says:

    Hopefully this is a prototype image to see how fans react or is from the wrestling scene. From my perspective, this suit looks incomplete. Looks like they got lazy with the webbing like the 1960’s cartoon and could not finish it down to the waist. No belt and the gloves make it look goofy. Stick with the classic look. The Raimi moves did it pretty good, even though the eyes on the mask were a bit pointy.

    My vote, thumbs down if that is the final version…

  65. #65 Brian Bradley says:

    Andrew has a better look than Tobey so far imo, but the costume is really hurting without the belt in the front. I too hope its just MIA because of battle. I would think this costume is close to final for the movie since it has claw marks in the front. I don’t believe Crusher Hogan had claws so it seems doubtful that this is just his wrestling costume. Webshooters will be a nice touch if that’s what they are, the only thing besides the mask that needs to be seen is the webbing. I think it should be a lot thicker than it was in Raimi’s films, and has a lot of really cool potential in a movie, especially in a 3D flick. A more cinematic spider-sense would be welcome too.

  66. #66 OrcaBreath says:

    Almost looks traditional/Ben Reiley.
    I like it.

  67. #67 stillanerd says:

    Well, to put on my cynical conspiratorial “tin-foil hat” for a moment, I wonder if the reason why the webbing on the reboot Spider-Man costume is less noticable is, due to the fact that there is supposedly less money being spent on this reboot (it’s budget is reported at $80 million), this means the CGI animators won’t have to spend time putting in the “web” pattern on “Spider-Man” during the moments when he’s swinging and fighting. :p

  68. #68 Chris Kuehl says:

    Andrew Garfield MAY fit the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man, BUT I personally hope that this movie has more romance, no origin story except for memory sequences, Emma Stone better look hot as Gwen Stacy (she did with tan skin and blonde hair in an interview), maybe the story will be intriguing, I like the Lizard (hope he looks frightening and dangerous), and lastly, I still prefer Mary Jane Watson over Gwen Stacy because I really originally wanted Emma Stone to be the new MJ. The suit’s webs are black like the comic-version and has that futuristic look to it which is good (the back spider better not be screwed up). What do you people think? I will definitely go see it no matter what, but it should be almost as good if not better than Spider-Man 1 and especially 2. Personally, I liked Spider-Man 3, it just needed Venom out of that one with only Sandman as the main villain and Harry as the new goblin that he played.
