68 Responses to “First image of Garfield as new Spider-Man”
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.
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.
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.
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?
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!
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.
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. =/
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.
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.
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.
…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.
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.
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.
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…
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).
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!
“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?
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.
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
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.
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…
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.
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
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.
