UPDATED! Tobey! Black Spidey Suit!! Pic!!! SPIDERMAN 3!!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here... No disrespect to big red, Cartuna or our new editor, Merrick, who has been doing a great job so far... But I saw this come in and immediately said, "Oh, Spider-Man 2..." So, yes... It's fake. We've already gotten the screengrabs from Spider-Man 2 sent in. We know it's fake... But it's also a decent look at how, visually, the black suit could look if it is indeed just the regular Spidey costume with raised, silver webbing. At least there's that. Enjoy the fakery.

Merrick here...

This comes from M21, a source previously unknown to AICN. As such, he/she/it is untested and untried - but damn compelling none the less.

Harry, myself, and the mighty Cartuna (our consulting image specialist) have all gone over this picture extensively, and we're 90% certain it's a legitimate shot from SPIDERMAN 3.

We know a lot of folks out there are trying to fuck us with home-made pics just like these. If that’s what this is…well done! REALLY well done!

But we think it’s real. See what you think...

    It's fake and you can tell, just at...

    by Krowtek

    just look at the left arm (his left), it has a bit of red left over from where they didn't change its to black and white.

  • March 29, 2006, 8:19 p.m. CST

    that lower right cut looks suspicious

    by sketch2099

    and there's a general glow to the webbing that doesn't quite look right, but still looks pretty damn real.

  • March 29, 2006, 8:20 p.m. CST

    someone please alter this pic!

    by sketch2099

    the same guy who made the last fan art should change this one and let us see how the black suit was meant to look!

    by tango fett

    what's up with his eyes? Oh, and cool pic.

    It's fake. It looks like a shot from Spider-Man 2...

    by xXMr_BoJaNgLeSXx

    Plus there's a little red left on his left arm. Incredible photoshop... but they missed a spot :)

    what's in the back

    by Sonic Reducer

    What kind of mask is that behind him? Who in the wide world of sports and maple syrup blotted it out??!!

    Way Fake!

    by jedijaybird

    But not a bad PS job. If you look by what woulb be the left elbow, you can see some red from the costume's original red color. There is also some red on Pedro's chin from the costume color reflecting on his skin.

  • March 29, 2006, 8:24 p.m. CST

    tobey's still not in shape

    by sketch2099

    he's just thin, he doesn't have any muscle, i should've been spidey. check out my posing routine i did to the danny elfman music from the first spidey movie

    Like I give a shit

    by Doc_Strange

    The movie is gonna be in the same realm as the last two meaning sub par FX, boring story, lame villain, in other words, nowhere near Empire Strikes Back so don't even go there.

  • March 29, 2006, 8:28 p.m. CST

    Nice work, but not real

    by mycoo

    I do photo correction and work of that nature, there are too many red pixels popping through at edges that prove it is a fake. The black is also just not reflecting ANY other color but GREY. Even black picks up Hues of other colors

  • March 29, 2006, 8:28 p.m. CST

    What's that face-like thing in the background?

    by veritasses

    And how come all masked comic book characters get unmasked in every movie? How 'bout they keep those damn things on for once? Those scars kind'a look fake.

  • March 29, 2006, 8:32 p.m. CST

    from original spidy?

    by Darth_Baltar

    kinda looks like a 'reverse image' of when spidey brings william dafoe back to the house before james franco walks in on them. Didn't spidey have that kind of injury across his chest? And I too think I can see a hint of red outline by the left arm near the elbow. Still, if its fake, its very good. If legit, then it only whets the appetite even more...

  • March 29, 2006, 8:33 p.m. CST

    it's fake

    by Subliminal

    it's soooooo fake people. someone from the superherohype forums maniped that from a pic from spiderman2. they made it back when the first REAL pic of the black suit came out.

  • March 29, 2006, 8:38 p.m. CST

    There is no way a costume designer would make that...

    by modlight

    The same as that one from before. That costume would never "pop" on screen. They would definitely go with something with more contrast. I call Bullshit.

    by abysstare

    I believe this is in the digital manips thread on Superhero Hype, under the Spider-Man 3 Spoilers section. Checking there would have taken all of about five seconds, and it's a pretty obvious place to look really. But hey, it still looks pretty damn sweet! lol :)

    Fakity Fake Fakey!

    by Zombie Carnifex

    Popped in Spidey 2 dvd and compared it to the pic and it's the same wounds, room and mask in the back. But now we need a real leaked shot from the pic to make up for the terrible disappointment we have all suffered as talkbackers.

  • March 29, 2006, 8:47 p.m. CST


    by imkindofabigdeal

    That is from spiderman 2 at the end when Doc Ock brings a barb wire wrapped peter to harry's place. That cut that tobey has is from the train scene, "Harry he's got MJ". And whoever made it missed that little bit of red on tobey's left arm, as a bunch of other talkbackers already pointed out. Harry WTF; we are catching all the fake in this photo, how did u not?

  • March 29, 2006, 8:48 p.m. CST

    Everyboy's . . .

    by ahthesuffering

    . . . right. A complete fake. Same the pic and zoom in as close as you can. There ARE red left overs from the alteration. Even the eyes aren't colored in correctly. Yet another reason why the AICN staff doesn't know thier assholes from a hole in the ground.

  • March 29, 2006, 8:55 p.m. CST


    by scythe1138

    Its a ceremonial mask from the Osborne mansion in the background. He still has wounds from the train battle and the symbiote doesn't tear.

  • March 29, 2006, 9:07 p.m. CST

    The symbiote suit is liquid...

    by Sizable Newt

    basically, well more of an oily than a liquid. So how the fuck could it tear like that on his chest? Your extensive research was well spent I see.

  • March 29, 2006, 9:08 p.m. CST

    AICN is the easiest to fool

    by Razorback

    This reminds me of all the fake Episode 3 stuff that AICN thought was real. Come on, guys. It took me 10 seconds to realize that it was Photoshopped. There are areas where the creator didn't remove the original color (specifically, on the outside of the left arm).

  • March 29, 2006, 9:09 p.m. CST

    FAKE... Color density is all wrong

    by mustang_dvs

    The "black" suit has uniform color values across all channels. That doesn't happen in real life. That and they did a crappy job of blending the edge of their clipping path.

  • March 29, 2006, 9:09 p.m. CST

    A Fake. Here's Proof.

    by isara

    It's a fake. It's from the train scene in Spiderman 2. All they did was change the background (if it was a train everybody would know where it came from) and blackend the suit (as everyone already pointed out). They kept the cuts on his torso the same - one upper left and one lower right. The cuts prove everything. Here's stills from the scene. Sorry for the quality.

  • March 29, 2006, 9:09 p.m. CST

    It's not the same suit we saw in the Official Poster.

    Save it NOW because Sony will pull it any second!

    by Doom II

    Because Sony is run by a bunch of whiny little bitches who want to copy protect everything so severely with "all new" technology, that it will actually effect HOW you can watch a movie in the future. Wait and see. Supposedly, they are so concerned about bootlegging and pirating that just running your AV cables through anything (vcr, dvd-r etc) will scramble the signal soon with their machines/PS3 and such. Bitches.

  • March 29, 2006, 9:19 p.m. CST

    It's from Spider-Man 2 - Link to pic right here...

    by Darth Yddet

    It's a production still from this scene right here (at 1:44:01 in), which I posted here... ... Notice the rips in his suit are identical and there's still even some red showing on his left forearm. People at SHH are even claiming it's one of their own manips.

  • March 29, 2006, 9:22 p.m. CST

    by Spider-Bite

    This picture was already debunked by Sony at their site, with the original picture the fan made. I saw this myself in the Super Hero Hype's fan art thread less than a month ago. I forget the guy's name that made it, but he's a good photo manipulator. I don't know how anybody could fall for this, it's so incredibly recognizeable from the scene where Harry rips off pete's mask. AICN needs to quit using fan made art and fan made trailers and then publishing it as real from spidey 3, and then claim Sony made them take it down. The law does not permit Sony to make them take it down. It's called Freedom of the Press. This is pathetic.

  • March 29, 2006, 9:26 p.m. CST

    Sony never made them take down anything

    by Spider-Bite

    AICN completely lied when they said Sony made them take down that trailer that was made by Wormy T over at the hype, and they never made them take down any of their scoops. It's part of the constitution. The media can not get in trouble for reporting any news it finds or knows about. Now a guy at Sony can get in trouble for leaking something, but AICN can not get in trouble for reporting it. Sony has no legal authority or ways to stop AICN from reporting a scoop. It's the law. AICN lied to you.

    by dejectedgeek

    Looks good, with the actual symbiote symbol, it would look great.

  • March 29, 2006, 9:30 p.m. CST

    Yeah, 'tis fake

    by Ribbons

    I'm not a photoshop expert by anyone's account, but the proof is pretty obvious: the left arm does indeed (as several have already mentioned) have leftover red and blue in areas that weren't shaded. Plus the rips in the suit look pretty consistent with the ones Spider-Man sustained in 'Spider-Man 2.' It's a good 'shop job, and the blue eyes were a nice touch, but it's just an admirable fake.

  • March 29, 2006, 9:30 p.m. CST

    it's fake

    by slder78

    look at the out of focusimage to his left. It's a mask i.e. Osborne's appartment. It the scene in Spiderman 2 where Harry unmasks Peter the line "There are more important things than you and me right now." And then they give a preview of a scene from Brokeback Mountain. Ok maybe not that last part.

    by Capt-Apathy

    The picture is from the scene in Spider-Man 2 where Spidey rips of the barb wire around him at Harry's house (notice the masks behind him), looks at Harry who is on the ground (that is why Tobey is looking down) and says, " There are bigger things happening here than me and you."

    by isara

    So it wasn't the train scene, it was later on. D'oh, my mistake. I still don't understand how AICN can claim this as news ("spoiler")when its a proven fake. What will be next, CNN claiming aliens attack Earth while showing altered footage fomr War of the Worlds or ID4? Sad.

    Good photoshopping, blah suit...

    by Arguendo

    Is everyone really that impressed with the suit? I'm not saying its bad, but I would have expected more. Forget the fact that it was photoshopped; if this were the real suit, it's the same suit as the previous movies -- only in black. The symbiote suit was different, not only in the pattern but (as someone mentioned above) fundamentally in the material. The suit in the pick says to me "black version of the spidey outfit" not "living symbiote". Or is this just meant to be the normal black costume that Spidey wore on occaison that MJ didn't like?

    The FACT that there IS a FACE in a mirrored and flipped image of the original teaser pic. Look between the wrists, there are teeth. Regular human teeth. Don't look for Venom chompers.

    To change the subject for a moment....

    by sundancekeed

    I want to take issue with the person who said McGuire is lame in the roll because he isn't "buff" enough. Does anyone remember Steve Ditko's art? You know, the CREATOR of Spidey along with Stan Lee? One of the reasons that Spider-Man was so successful was he wasn't all amped up with bulging muscles like the DC gang. He looked like a kid. Which was what he was. It was first Romita and later artists like McFarlane that packed on the biceps. But he's never really been musclebound nor should he be. I always thought that Spidey SHOULD be kind of slim.

    I'm a moderately adept user of Photoshop CS2. Make no mistake...this wasn't a 10 minute job, but it is a fake. There's a couple of ways to do it. Using the select tools, you can select each section of the costume and make specific adjustments to the hue and saturation, apply filters, replace colors, etc. It's not something I'd personally want to spend as much time on as this must have taken, but I'm impressed. It's a nice job, frankly. I hope the guy works in the field, because it is really well done. If you weren't looking for the 'tell', you wouldn't notice it.

    Here it is : With his secret now revealed to both Mary Jane and Harry, Peter must face the consequences of his actions and his new life together with Mary Jane as they finally form a relationship. Yet their newfound open display of love has yielded some unfortunate results, not the least of which is Peter's upset boss determined to make his life hell for causing his son emotional distress. Not helping is a young investigative reporter named Eddie Brock who Jameson has hired to find out why Mary Jane dumped his son for Peter - what's Parker's secrets? At the same time an escaped prisoner hiding out on a remote beach is caught in a dreadful accident and finds himself turned into a shape-shifting sand creature. Peter's investigations into the past of this 'Sandman' brings him in contact with two very different things that will inevitably alter his life. The first a young woman named Gwen Stacy, daughter of the city's new police chief who is developing a soft spot for Peter. The other, a black substance from an accident scene which 'merges' with Peter's costume and gives him new found abilities. Things come to a head however when Harry Osborn, determined to take revenge against Peter for his father's death and now equipped with what he needs to pull it off, teams with The Sandman in a new variation of his father's Green Goblin guise and causes mayhem. In the ensuing chaos lives are lost, including people very close to Peter, whilst the black substance covering his suit separates from him and merges with a distraught Brock to form something else entirely - a creature unlike anything he's ever faced. A 'Venom' that he may not be able to stop.

    Guess what, assholes? Sam Raimi will eventually tell all of you who the villains are going to be in the new movie, who's playing them, and he might even show you pictures of what they're going to look like. So until that precious moment comes, which I'm sure will be the equivalent of having the children you're too goddamn busy being a stone-cold nerd to have, spare us sane readers with lives the doctored photographs, the two-bit Venom reels, and the constant stories that make us think something official has been announced. And sorry AICN, but if the people working for you are 90% convinced that this is real, you need to seriously consider hiring what in the real world is referred to as a "professional" and not a pimple-scarred fanboy jerking off to Tobey Maguire in a black spider-man suit.

Why does he he flirt back with the chick who actually looks like she'd be worth it - the chick handing him his pay check. And MY GOD was I bored. I tried everyone. I love the feel and the look.... but .... I'm sorry, I know you all worship this film. But believe me, there's so much more potential. Here's hopeing SM3 is a little more like those Classic Raimi scenes - like the hospital attack. Now THAT was worth watching. So were the boobie chicks. But.... seriously. This film is just. Well, it's bad. Like star wars prequels bad. Only the prequels are a little more believable.

    It's good to show someone of what the suit would look like if you took a photo from Spidy 1 or 2 & changed it...but surely no one can believe this is real. I mean c'mon now. This is clearly a manipulated photo of the old suit just made for that purpose and/or to mess w/all of us. The similarites in the patterns of the suit have opened the door for all kinds of these homemade images to hit the web.

    Spiderman 3

    by emeraldboy

    This is the big sony release of next year. They are keeping this under wraps. Apart from teaser artwork of a black spidey. The poster, this photo of Tobey Maguire, the old one of Haden Church and Kirsten Dunced, mean nothing. Later in the year or early next year, they will start to release the trailers etc. Untill then, i like many others will have no idea what this film is about untill the time sony blabs. untill then quit guessing please. For ExcaliburFurFolkes, There was a Spidey story in Which Jamesons son went into outer space. They unsuspectingly brought back a symbiotic parasite which attached it self to eddie brock he becomes Venom. He goes to parkers apartment and places a sample of the symbiote under Parkers door, it attaches itself on to peter and he briefly becomes Venom and this leads to him, peter going on the rampage. At least that is what happens in the 90's Cartoon.

Anyway, I would have attached it here so people could critique it the way their critiquing this fan art, but the board lacks such capabilities. By the way, I showed my son the image above, and he threw up. Apparently he doesn't like the black suit concept.

    That's not quite what happened in the 90's cartoon. John Jameson goes into space, they unsuspectingly bring back the symbiote (it's in a lunar rock I believe) and it starts trying to infect the astronauts, and causes the shuttle to crash in the Hudson River. Spidey rescues Jameson from the water and attributes the "black tar" all over his suit to be pollution from the dirty river. He gets back home and goes to sleep, intending to clean his suit in the morning...the symbiote wakes up and takes Parker for a "joy ride" during the night...

    I sent a scoop to Harry awhile ago, and I guess he is still checking in on it. Anyways one of the toys for Spidey 3 is a Spider-Man figure which has a paint scheme which changes from the red and blue costume to the black one. This is supposedly to simulate in the movie where the costume is light sensitive and at night will go to black when Spidey is in the shadows.

    who cares...

    by JimmyJoe RedSky

    ... its just amother spiderman movie - why does everyone act like these spiderman movies are gods answer to fanboy/comicbook geek cinema - i much prefer hellboy - both the movie and the comics - sure - spiderman movies are decent enough - raimi is always raimi - even with a giant budget to work with - but is this news - this place is turning into 'access hollywood' - i can easily wait until the release to find out if his suit is black - and - if people like R.C. the "Wise" are working at sony - and are responsible for keeping certain projects secret - its no wonder images like this get out - that is if its real - yes - a fake can be made using a screen grab or stock photo from one of the previous movies - and photo shop - but whats more pathetic than all the broo ha ha over super secret spidey pics is the notion that someone would spend the time it would take to make a fake spiderman pic - just to get some desperate attention here at "is-it-cool-news?"

    In the comics, for a period after the Scret Wars story, spidey had a black costume that was an alien symbiote that had attached itself to him. Spidey began to notice that the symbiote was making him change, he was becoming more ruthless, and almost took someone's life. He got the suit removed, first with the help of Reed Richards, and again by standing on a church as teh bells went off. and the symbiote attached itself to Eddie Brock, creating Venom.

  • March 30, 2006, 12:16 p.m. CST

    I think now that it is probably fake

    by BilboRing

    I forgot that the symbiote costume would not tear. It would just cover itself up again. And it does seem like the same wounds from the other movie. So maybe I was wrong for once.

  • March 30, 2006, 12:35 p.m. CST

    It's real

    by Blindside462

    Why would it be a fake? There is even a black suit poster for the official spiderman 3 cover. so it comes to conclusion that this is real and those scars and the background match nothing to spiderman 2

  • March 30, 2006, 12:36 p.m. CST

    ExcaliburFfolkes, here's the black costume scoop

    by Blanket-Man

    Here's the extremely convoluted COMICS version (the one that should count!): There's yet another version in the Ultimate universe (which would be a lot easier to recreate in a 2-hour movie), wherein Brock's and Parker's fathers actually created the suit to be some type of individual defense system for the military. Parker's dad didn't live long enough to test it, so Peter tried it on when he discovered it. It did have a negative effect on Peter's mind, causing him to almost kill someone. He rejected it; his slightly-older pal Eddie tried it out, liked it, and Venom was born.

    No doubt it is a fake. Being a graphic designer I can tell instantly where there's incorrect lighting, elements taken from other sources, curves done too perfect etc. Also they missed a bit of red on the arm...d'oh

    OPen Photoshop. Draw a frisket around the suit with the lasso tool. feather the frisket by a few pixels, just to blend the edges. open either 'levels' or 'hue/saturation', and reduce the colour value to 0. and...voila! My daily rate is $350.

    its gotta be a fake and i will tell you why

    by testicleez

    one reason and one reason alone stands out. forget the fact that its an image from a previous spidey film...forget the red and blue spots all over the left arm...the reason is simple really...the black suit prevents spidey from getting injured in such a way...if the suit is immediately heals itself, thus is the greatness of the black symbiote costume. do you really think that if his costume got all ripped up like that that the suit would just be he's exposed and hurt what a worthless symbiote i must be. or perhaps thats what makes the suit amp itself up for the eddie brock takeover, correcting past mistakes and learning. doubt it...its fake bitches, and this movie will still own in 07' testicleez out

    Here at the state-of-the-art $500 Billion Brokeback Graphics Data Analysis Center, located in beautiful Wyoming on a lush 20,000 acre site, we have run the image through the Cray 5000 supercomputer, and have confirmed that the image is real. Keep in mind that the injury is visible because this shot was taken before the symbiote started the repair process. Should you have any images you need analyzed, please send them to us for a complimentary analysis.

    One more time...

    by ZeroCorpse

    The "black suit" they refer to in the promo text is not a black costume, but a black (think funeral) suit worn by Pete when someone dear to him dies. The image in the Sony promo isn't a black and white photo, but it IS a black and white PAINTING. They're playing with words, and you're all falling for it.

    Venom origins

    by lobot72

    As said above Spiderman aquired the Venom costume during the Secret Wars. In the battle Captain America's shield was cracked in two and Spiderman's costume was destroyed, they found some alien super computer and it repaird Cap Americas shield and spit out a black costume for Spidey. When they returned to Earth Spidermans new costume started taking over at night while Peter slept. If I remember correctly Spiderman went into a bell tower and the ringing of the bell forced the costume off Spiderman. Venoms weaknesses are loud sonic noises and fire. Reed Richards took the symbiote off Eddie Brock but it escaped the containment cell and returned to Brock in prison. As Brock escaped prison the symbiote left behind an offspring which attached to Brocks cellmate (who's name I can't recall) together they became Carnage. Carnage can not only shoot web like tendrils but also form them into razor sharp weapons. The Carnage symbiote was covered in red and black swirls. FYI Spiderman's Spidey Sense doesn't work with either Venom or Carnage.

    Too much, too soon

    by davy jones owns

    am i the only one that feels that this movie is waaaay over packed? i mean theres sandman, the hobgoblin, the lizard (potentially), gwen stacy, black cat and now venom? i mean seriously theyre taking it too far and ruining quality sequals in the process. i mean i would seriously wait until spider man 6 to see venom in action or to see gwen stacy or electro or anything! it just seems theyre packing it out for blockbusters sake. and the movie might suffer for it....

  • March 30, 2006, 10:20 p.m. CST


    by lobot72

    Carnages host's name is Cletus Cassidy. If I remember correctly Cassidy was an insane serial killer. Personally I like carnage better than Venom so hopefully in Spiderman 4 or 5 (if there is a 4 or 5)Carnage will make his debut.

    Response to davy jones own

    In the comic book Spiderman quite often was up against several enemies at a time, of course it was spread over several issues so packing them all in a 2 to 3 hour movies might be tough.

    the liz banks interview

    by misnomer

    says the main theme is the "dark side of having the powers of a superhero" so you can forget funerals/etc...its the symbiote script ladies and gentlemen. Im really looking forward to seeing just how evil tobey can get and how raimi can make us sympathise with him. If that Q&A is true (hey they got the costume details right) then that means well see parker lose virtually everyone thats close to him and then go on a rampage....its sounds like its gonna be a winner.

    by misnomer

    Not a lot of note over the last few days. I never did see a fireball. Last night the filming involved a scene with a guy in a black (from my vantage point) body suit laid out in the alley and someone who appeared to be more in a business suit dropping off a building (more of a leap and land on your feet) next to him. Above taken from a blog of a guy in downtown los angeles where theyre doing 2nd unit filming. A guy in a suit&tie and a guy in a black body suit. Sounds like harry and black spidey to me (in an alley) ...exactly as the Q&A described....

    Q&A proven false here

    by Spider-Bite

    AICN claims that Sony made them take down the Q & A? It's funny how every 3 or 4 days it pops up on Super Hero hype, and yes even at Sony's official boards, but it never gets taken down. You would think that if Sony can make AICN take it down, they would at least be able to take it down when it's their own website. According to the federal constitution Sony would have no legal grounds to make any website take it down. It's freedom of the press. They found out something that is happening in the world, and they are legally allowed to report that.
