Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada spoke with IGN about Spidey’s new costume.
No, not that laughable new one with the Green Lantern crap on Spidey’s chest. The new movie costume, which is most definitely not pictured here to the right. The former Editor-in-Chief of Marvel teased details of the twice-rebooted SonyDisneyMarvel Spider-Man costume:
“It looks awesome. I’ve seen a lot of design work that’s been done on the costume. I think there are elements of it that are really going to blow people away, where they are going to go ‘Ah, that’s Marvel doing Spider-Man.’… It’s Spider-Man. What’s not exciting about that? I can’t imagine there’s a person on planet Earth that can’t relate to some aspect of Spider-Man or Peter Parker, and he is for all intents and purposes, he is Marvel’s Mickey Mouse.”
I don’t recall Mickey Mouse ever making a deal with Disney’s equivalent of the Devil so Walt could write Minnie out of the picture, but I digress…
“He is that icon of so much of what we have was built upon, so to create that movie along with our Sony partners it’s phenomenally exciting. I know Kevin Feige and his team, they’ve some great ideas, some wonderful theories that we have all chimed in on. What’s funny about Spider-Man is that you sit there and you’re at a creative meeting and everybody goes ‘Well what about this? Yeah, of course! That’s what we should be doing, that’s Spider-Man!’ We all seem to be of the same mind about Spider-Man, because there are certain aspects of the character that are just iconic and have been perfect since the moment they were created.”
… all of which tells us next to nothing. We’ll know more when Marvel “leaks” it to USA Today or CNN.
