Check out these spy pics of Spider-Man in action!

Published at: Jan. 18, 2011, 5:48 p.m. CST

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some neat looking spy shots from the filming of the new Spider-Man thanks to a vigilant reader named Jason.

My own Spidey-sense went off whenever Sony released the big first look at the costume last week. Usually that's the studio wanting to beat the leak and have control over the first impression of the film. So, public filming couldn't have been far off, hence the early official release.

I'm gonna share the 8 pics below and talk about 'em at the end.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look at the eyes in that first pic. Much smaller than previous Spidey flicks and a little more classic design, yeah? Diggin' it so far. You?

    by oisin5199

    just kidding. Spy pics never tell you anything. Just evidence that they're actually shooting.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 5:52 p.m. CST

    Cant tell about the eyes

    by Kammich

    The pic is too small... I wouldn't mind smaller eyes, though. It just seems to me like its a very wide pickup shot of a stuntman and the look of the eyes there may have no ultimate bearing on the look of the eyes of the final costume.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 5:52 p.m. CST

    looks cool

    by maxjohnson1971

    I'm feeling better about this.

    by Tarantinos_Forehead

    which i like!!! more realistic

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 5:58 p.m. CST

    I really hope this doesn't suck, I swear

    by WriteForTheEdit

    I want another awesome super-hero movie, I really do... Hoping we'll get some "leaked" images that inspire a bit more excitement...

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 5:59 p.m. CST

    How can you judge the eyes?

    by Laserhead

    I can't see shit. They almost look red.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 5:59 p.m. CST

    I LOVE THESE PHOTOS!!!

    by RpgSama

    For real, in the other movies 99,9% of the time that spiderman was on screen it was cgi, at least we are seeing he is in "action" scenes, running and on top of moving trucks, that's something...

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 5:59 p.m. CST

    Kinda looks like "Ditko" eyes... I like it!

    by Roffstafarian

    They still shooting this in LA? 'Cuz about a month ago I saw them shooting at a theater on Hollywood around Gower.

    @Braindead He has webshooters in the new movie.

    So he might not have them yet in this. Also, MEGA EXCITED for this film.

    It is more special to see a REAL Spider-man

    by MST3KPIMP

    I mean just knowing it's an actual person sticking to the truck means more than the needles cgi the Raimi films subjected us to.

    by WX1

    Looks like the same da^n things. New York. Ooh! Leaping on trailers. Ooh! "They're" going to regret making so much "reboot" about this one. Can only hope they don't re-do the origin story (though, you KNOW they will). Have the sucka <i>in medias res</i> and throw 'bout 5-7 of Spidey's villains against him; there you go, tch, you gotta be UNIONIZED to come up with these ideas? Sheeeeeeeeeeeeee ehhhhhhhhh . . .

  • No?

    Spidey '77??? Hammond was a Badassss ;)

    Less "mask off" time, please. Tobey = douche.

    by Behemoth

    What drove me nuts about the Raimi movies (one of many things) was that, with each successive movie, there were more and more scenes of MacGuire in the Spidey suit but without the mask. It's like he had it written into his script or something. He'd have the mask on for 2 minutes, then it would get ripped off, then he'd be maskless for the remainder of the scene. RIDICULOUS. Just looking at those fuzzy pics gives me more enjoyment than all of Spider-Man 3. Still hate the Emma Stone as Gwen casting. If ever there was a perfect MJ, it was Emma. But, I'm looking forward to this for now...

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 6:21 p.m. CST

    i dont mind this reboot unless they turn it into

    by KilliK

    an Ultimate/Twilight crapfest.I enjoyed a lot Raimi's first movie but i consider the other two pure shit so i am interested to see their new try on the character.who knows maybe this flick turns out to be the best comic-book ever and not that overrated borefest SM2...

    I"m laughing at one of the pics

    by Weapon M

    Where he looks like he's upside down next to the truck. Did he fall?? I don't see any wires..

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 6:30 p.m. CST

    He doesn't have any lenses in his mask.

    by MAD_MIKE

    This is no different from how they filmed a lot of the other ones. His eye pieces would be out and they would add them in post. Now if they are small or large I cannot tell, but I hope the eyes are the smaller design. I like that the scene is practical also.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 6:36 p.m. CST

    Already better than Raimi's Gumby-Man

    by MattmanReturns

    I always hated CG Spidey. Hopefully more practical shots in this movie.

    I don't know which gets the EPIC FAIL of the night award... Quint's "Look at the eyes" comment or Max Cherry's "bootleg MIGHTY JOE YOUNG on VHS shameathon".<p> I think it's Max Cherry. He seems to have gone to more effort than Quint, who is obviously just treading water till the boss gets out of hospital.

    not much

    Love it

    by rocky

    I think this movie is going to rock. I loved Raimi's first 2 for sure but after 3 I'm betting that this will be a most welcome addition after the dud that was part 3. Plus I like how they seem to be getting back to the basics of the character and getting his "love timeline" right

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 6:40 p.m. CST

    "Look at the eyes" is pretty bad

    by MattmanReturns

    Given that they are blurry blobs that look generally the same size as the previous films.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 6:43 p.m. CST

    I hope Spidey can talk unmuffled in this one

    by MattmanReturns

    Victim: "Thanks Spider-Man!" Spider-Man: "Mffrrrsssmm!" Victim: "What was that?" Spider-Man: "Nrrffram frjjsk!"

    had Raimi's demented brand of energy going for them. What does this have going for it, exactly, other than a complete lack of novelty?

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 6:52 p.m. CST

    will he take his mask off in every fight scene?

  • Like the retarded scene where Aunt May screams "DELIVER USSSS..." Goblin: "FINISH IT!!" Hilarious? Yes. Quality cinema? No.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 6:59 p.m. CST

    Thats a different suit then what we saw in the official pic

    by Redhead_Redemption

    notice the red belt like desing in these pic..that wasn't in the official pic meaning he obviously makes multiple suits in the film

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 7:05 p.m. CST

    "Quality cinema? No."

    by KilliK

    sorry but if you want quality cinema,go watch a Bergman film,not a popcorn movie based on a funny book for kids.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 7:06 p.m. CST

    Looks like Spidey runs out of web fluid!

    by Thanos0145

    Too hard to tell what size the eyes are going to be on the mask since its a stuntman costume.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 7:08 p.m. CST

    mattmanreturns, I highly doubt...

    by Fa_Tass_DinoMolester

    a movie about a teenager in a spider suit will ever amount to "quality cinema"...at least Raimi brought a properly "comic-booky" sensibility to it. This version will probably lack any directorial authorship whatever...

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 7:09 p.m. CST

    Hate to be a turd...

    by SebastianHaff

    But these pictures really solidify how silly the entire superhero genre is. That's a silly looking guy in a silly looking suit doing gymnastics and cracking one liners. <br><p> I've been ready for years now for the superhero genre to die down a little. Seems like every two out of three studio tentpoles are now cheesy comic book movies for teenagers. Remember when there were summer movies like Jaws, Close Encounters, The Thing, Terminator 2, shit, even Independence Day? Does everything have to be about fucking crime fighters in spandex? <br><p> To be fair, I've never been much of a fan. In fact, I just finished watching Inside, and now I'm on a badass movie high, so perhaps my tastes are a bit more... eccentric.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 7:10 p.m. CST

    killik, thankfully Nolan, Donner, Singer, and Burton don't think like you

    by MattmanReturns

    Most of their movies based on "funny books" were fairly high quality (barring the ones with 'Returns' in the title).

    ...they're "rebooting" a series that started in 2002? What's next, rebooting Batman Begins? Hell, that movie was in 2005, almost time for a fresh start! Fuck Hollywood.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 7:55 p.m. CST

    This films plot revolves around...

    by MajorFrontbum

    ....Spiderman's fear of Zebra crossings and how he'd rather risk death, that press the button and wait to cross the street, with the rest of civilization. The plot of the next film, deals with Spiderman's fear of the bath and how he's strictly a 'shower guy' these days. In the third film, he travels to India to sit and watch washer women, wash his outfit in the Ganges, while he dictates his memoirs to the corpse of Gary Coleman, who's been floating in the river along with his pet miniature Seahorse named "Colossus". This instalment will run for three hours and will be in 3D.

    Then I realized they "reboot" James Bond continuously; that whole series is one perpetual reboot. Maybe Spiderman. Batman, Hulk, etc. should be viewed the same way.

    by Tai_Pan

    "Please don't compare Raimis Spider-Man disasters to Batman Begins or The Dark Knight. Not even in the same fucking ballpark. " <p> That's right. Raimi's films were of a superior class. While Begins had a great start, the last third is ridiculous, poorly acted and absurd (ruining what was otherwise excellent stuff). <p> TDK should have called itself "Heat 2: Gotham". The dialogue is atrocious, and once again the ending is unbelievably preposterous. Everyone gets on two boats, huh? Everything was planned by the Joker, huh? Ridiculous. Decide if you're going to be realistic, or fantastic, but don't pretend that you're both. And please, treat your audience was a modicum of respect and don't EXPLAIN IN GRAPHIC VOICE-OVER NARRATION the meaning of the film, the meaning of the title, and the symbolism behind the film. We're not retarded. We can figure out that Batman is the dark knight and Harvey is the white knight. Not that the movie deserved to be called TDK anyway. Usually, you would expect Batman to have a role in his own movie, instead of doing nothing and being ancillary to every plot development. <p> Raimi's movies had heart, and found Spider-man/Peter to be interesting in himself (unlike Nolan's Batman, who simply has things happen TO him). Yeah, the third was a letdown, but the other two are the best of the entire superhero genre.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 8:26 p.m. CST

    It looks awful

    by mastes360

    Simply awful and very much like the college apprentice film maker version that it obvioulsy is due to its $80mil budget. The Sam Raimi Spiderman films were 'event' films but this seems like a Saturday night tv show version. It is strange that Sony seems to have so little faith in this film especialy after the last 3 Spiderman films have made over $800mil EACH worldwide.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 8:28 p.m. CST

    Naah

    by Star Hump

    Iron Man is the best of the genre. At least that movie stayed true to its source material instead of making up stupid shit because you think it's an improvement, like organic web shooters for fuck's sake. Raimi - ego run amok.

  • Andrew Garfield did a great job in The Social Network, so I'm convinced he'll pull off the Peter Parker character better than Tobey Maguire did, all he did was cry like a bitch for 3 movies. Actually make that 2, cuz Spider-man 2 is a CLASSIC super hero flick. I'd like an official pic from the studio highlighting the new mask design, but we are over a year away so the longer they stall, the better. Besides the geeks & nerds are too busy arguing over whether or not to buy Star Wars on blu ray lol. (P.S. Stop giving that moron your $$) FYI, has anyone peeped http://kungfutreachery.blogspot.com out yet?? That guy is a fucking genius!!!

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 8:31 p.m. CST

    Oh yeah and who cares about the webshooters anyway??

    by AmazinSpidey82

    let's focus on more important topics...like who is the main villain, if Spidey has his random quips in the script, etc.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 8:33 p.m. CST

    "Raimi's films were of a superior class"

    by MattmanReturns

    That's the funniest thing I've heard all day, thank you. Aunt May is terrible. "I believe there's a heeerroo in all of us." I love Spidey's oh-so-witty retorts, like this one: "Oh... um." The editing is all over the place. "Godspeed Spider-Man" *laughter* blatant cut to a completely different shot: "OH." Peter inadvertently causing Ben's death is so fucking contrived it's hilarious... and they chicken out and let the guy fall out of a window after Peter chases him down. Kirsten Dunst looks like an old woman, and we're supposed to swallow that she gets modelling and singing gigs? The effects look like plastic. I get that it's based on a comic book... but this is fucking live action... the whole point of which is to make it feel more REAL... which is why the stupid comic book paneling in Hulk didn't work. Otherwise, make it a cartoon. Good things: Jameson, Doc Ock (aside from several cheesy lines), and Harry's arc was fairly interesting. Sam Raimi is a b-movie director... he excels at that. But Spider-Man deserves better.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 8:38 p.m. CST

    "Everything was planned by the Joker, huh?"

    by MattmanReturns

    Did you bother to finish the movie? Not everything went according to the Joker's plan. "Usually, you would expect Batman to have a role in his own movie, instead of doing nothing" Actually, now I'm wondering if you even saw TDK. EVERYTHING that happens in the film revolves around him. The Joker wouldn't even exist without him. As far as him not doing anything? I don't even know what to say to that, as it's about as far from the truth as possible. He busts his ass through the entire movie. 95% of the plot wouldn't even progress without him.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 8:40 p.m. CST

    Braindrain, Spider-Man 2 is decent

    by MattmanReturns

    Just not as great as everyone claims. It needs about 30 minutes shaved off it, particularly most of the retarded Aunt May scenes, where she tells Peter how awesome Spider-Man is.

  • Jan. 18, 2011, 8:46 p.m. CST

    Kirsten IS a model and singer in real life, dummy. If you find that unbelievable, take it up with the God, because he created reality. <p> Aunt May WAS terrible in those films. Just like Katie Holmes was bad in Batman Begins and Maggie Gyllenhall was wooden in TDK. The difference is that May is a secondary character while Rachel is a supposedly primary character. <p> If you want to talk about awful dialogue and delivery, how about ANY child actor in Nolan's Batman flicks (any director with an ounce of sense SHOULD have taken those kids out of the movie immediately). Or how about the crazy people working for Joker? The fat guy with the bomb in his stomach "He said he'd fill me with lights! Like Christmas!" - That shit is awful. Or the guy Dent interrogates... who cast that guy? <p> Spider-man wasn't pretentious or trying to take itself serious, unlike TDK (Begins didn't have this problem in the amount TDK did). "Peter inadvertently causing Ben's death is so fucking contrived it's hilarious" <p> It hewed very close to the comics (actually, quite a bit MORE realistic, even while staying true to the original). In the comics, Peter lets the guy get away and then he RANDOMLY robs Peter's home and kills his uncle. The movie changed it to place Ben at the point where Pete lets the robber get away (making a lot more sense). "I love Spidey's oh-so-witty retorts, like this one: 'Oh... um.'" You're right in that Spidey didn't have a lot of witty comebacks after the first film, but I don't think the second or third film suffers for it. Throughout the 3 films, I never had any problem with the special effects. I thought they were wonderful throughout. While the Costume of the Green Goblin looked stupid, that was the only one I took issue with. As far as special effects and design goes, the Spider-man films are top notch.

    "Did you bother to finish the movie? Not everything went according to the Joker's plan. " <p> The ONLY thing that didn't go to plan was the boat didn't explode. All the rest of his ridiculous plans were SOARING FEATS of logistics. All while claiming that plans were stupid and chaos blah blah incoherent illogical chaos babble blah blah. <p> TDK asks you to take it seriously while simultaneously demanding you believe that the Joker can overtake the entire mob, anticipate Batman and the every move of the city and the police (including foreknowledge that the citizenry would board giant boats... wtf?) using a bunch of mental patients as his primary commandos. Yeah, the joker totally had confidence that the bomb in the fat guys gut would somehow allow him to escape from prison. Yeeeeeeeeeah. Oh, and he was also totally confident that Harvey was going to survive the bomb blast and somehow become psychotic. <p> Spider-man isn't asking you to take it seriously. It's a fun popcorn movie that also talks about growing up, love and responsibility. <p>

    Does Whatever a Spider Can....

    by bames_jond

    Spiders don't do much, actually. They crawl up walls, spin webs, scare small children and catch flies. Then they eat them. Yep, that's right. IMHO it'd be a better movie if Peter Parker would get the craving for house flies and dedicate all his time to catching and eating them, not thieves or bad guys...no. Flies. Yes, flies. Oh, yeah, spiders are also hairy and have eight legs, so we'll need to do something about that. And.....most of them are brown.

    "in the climactic finale,PP expresses his love for MJ in a funeral,in the fucking funeral of his best's friend father who also happened to be MJ's former lover.JESUS,wtf was Raimi thinking?" <p> That's not what happened. PP was confronted by Mary Jane AFTER the funeral when Harry left. After the Funeral, Peter goes to HIS UNCLE'S GRAVE when MJ shows up. She says she loves Peter, and Peter rejects her, saying that he has nothing to offer her at the moment except friendship. Peter doesn't say anything about being in love with her.

    "Maggie Gyllenhall was wooden in TDK"

    by MattmanReturns

    Maggie's acting was fine. Certainly nothing that made me grit my teeth like any given Aunt May line. I agree Katie Holmes wasn't that great (I think 'awful' is stretching it though). Aunt May killed Spider-Man 2. She's the equivalent of the fridge nuke in Indy 4. Why she gets a pass I'll never know. She practically talks to the audience. Gordon's voiceover at the end of Dark Knight is stirring and well delivered, and a final punch that perfectly concludes the movie and its themes. Aunt May's speech about Spider-Man comes out of nowhere and is incredibly hammy. Also, you don't see Batman taking off his mask every five seconds, revealing himself to the city. How Tobey Maquire got more egotistical than Bale, who is a far better actor, is beyond me. Raimi's Spider-Man movies suck.

TDK is a well-crafted cinematic event,but its logic is out of the window.i wonder if Nolan took notice of this criticism about his film and tried very hard to perfect the plot logic of his Inception script.not that this prevented Inception to be the borefest that it is.

    This looks nice, better than the horrible promo image

    by kevred

    Sure, it's just distant fuzzy shots that reveal nothing about the style or substance of the film. But a slender guy in what seems to be a very nice Spidey suit performing real stunts in traffic... that seems promising to me. No reason a Spidey film can't be as earthy and urban-fun as the first couple Superman films. No reason at all. Raimi got some things right for sure, but I didn't like that every action scene felt like the interlude in a video game. And, to reiterate, that recent promo shot was horrible. Stupid emo-Twilight Spidey, awful costume design, just dumb all around. I'm going to try to reset my first impression of this film around these pleasant, fuzzy shots and forget that abomination we saw a few days earlier.

    I'm not one of those "The Dark Knight is completely realistic" retards. I stress that it *feels* real. It's all an illusion of course... but in my opinion TDK maintains that illusion better than most comic book movies. As for the Joker escaping the penthouse... people were clearly scared of him at that party... he probably ran right past them into some other room where his zipline was waiting, or some shit. Same reason a few scary terrorists were able to hijack 747s and fly them into buildings.

    the funeral

    by Tai_Pan

    "and the funeral had JUST finished.would you as a normal person reveal your love to your male/female friend in a moment like that???" <p> I can see it happening. Love makes people inconsiderate sometimes. And a funeral is generally a time when emotions run high, so outbursts aren't particularly abnormal. "but it also doesn't need to be completely retarded and goofy" <p> The movie is far from retarded. Yeah, it does get goofy... just like the source material. It isn't trying to avoid goofiness, nor was the comic. Anyone who says otherwise hasn't read the comics, recent or otherwise. <p> and let's not kid ourselves... Maggie Gyllenhall was awful. Part of it is the awful lines they gave her, and part is her soulless delivery, devoid of passion or belief in the material. She's a MacGuffin that does nothing in the film other than provide a source of conflict. I'm not saying she's a bad actress, but I am saying it was a bad performance. <p> "Gordon's voiceover at the end of Dark Knight is stirring and well delivered" <p> It's easily the worst part of the entire movie: <p> Son- "Why is he running?" <p> Gordan- "Because we have to chase him." RIVETING!! <p> Son- "he didn't do anything wrong." <p> Gordan- "he is the hero that gotham deserves," <p> YEAH, WE REMEMBER THAT FROM EARLIER... BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE THE MEMORY CAPACITY OF A SQUIRREL. <p> Gordan- "but not the hero gotham needs right now," NO KIDDING? WE JUST HEARD THIS EXPLANATION LIKE TWO MINUTES AGO? <p> Gordon- "so we'll hunt him," OMG. REALLY? <p> Gordon- "because he can take it," YA HEAR THAT? BATMAN'S A BADAAAASS! <p> Gordon- "he's not the hero," YES. WE KNOW. THAT'S AT LEAST THE THIRD TIME YOU'VE SAID IT IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES. <p> Gordon- "he's are silent guardian," DUDE, STFU. <p> Gordon- "our watchful protecter," OVERKILL. <p> Gordon- "the dark knight" NO SHIT. WE COULD NEVER HAVE FIGURED THAT OUT UNLESS YOU SPOONFED IT TO US AND CRAMMED IT DOWN OUR THROATS. <p> Why not add other explanations: Gordon: "you see, Billy, Batman is like a dark knight, and Harvey was like a white knight, because we called him a white knight, and like, a white knight is supposed to be all good and shiny, and a dark knight is supposed to be lawless, and Harvey was supposed to be good and lawful, while Batman is a lawbreaker. But Billy, Batman gets results because he breaks the law, so he's still protecting us even though he breaks the law. Comparatively and conversely, Harvey ended up breaking the law even though his outer appearance was that of a lawful man! Quite a turn if I do say so myself!" <p> Please don't overexplain the movie. It loses all metaphor and artistic/philosophical value when you throw subtlety under the bus.

    that's why the creatures in avatar don't look real to me. They are too polished. JP still owns. Even by today's standards tho I felt Raimi's Spiderman CGI was painfully subpar. The color was off, his movements were off, and the gravity either pulled him down too fast or was non existent. It looked wacky. Doc Oc was pretty good tho and the Sandman birth scene was well done but they really needed more real stunt work. In the 1st Spiderman movie in the scene in the alley way in rain when he fights off the attackers going after mj, I loved how that scene looked because it was all in frame action. It was very brief but that's how a spiderman movie should look you can feel the physicality of it. I cannot root for a digital cartoon character on screen.

    why the hell are they remaking this shit already?

    by jolliff89

    seriously, the last damn spiderman movie was just out like 2-3 years ago? do we really need another one already? there's more interesting shit to focus on, not remaking this movie again into something else.

    All the complaining..

    by ClayG

    Are you morons complaining bcause they recast Spidey? If so, did you bitch about Val Kilmer too, back when Batman Forever came out? (I'm leaving Clooney out of it, that shouldn't have happened.) How come I've never heard those films referred to as 'remakes'? And the people talking about an origin sequence in this film...what's your basis? Seen a script? Some people just like to bitch.

    These pictures are a lot cooler if you pretend that they're photos of the *actual* Spider-Man taken from some guy in the Marvel universe.

    The first photo *kinda* shows off the small eyes. We can only hope. Giant eyes are like... the Poochiefication of Spidey. Also, *more* Peter David. What fun.

    There's more real stunt in the Raimi's SPIDER-MAN movies then you might think. It's just that with computer assisted post-production and digital grading, even the real stunts soemtiems look computer generated images. It's a bane of many of today's movies that evne if they do stunts for real, the image still looks like it was computer generated, due to computer assisted post-production. This goes specially jarring in super-hero movies. It takes a particular skilled cinematographer to go full gritty in movies like the BOURNE IDENTITY to avoid that computer sheen look that the majority of today's blockbusters have.

    I wish well on this remake

    by AsimovLives

    For starters, i really like the actor who was casted as Spider-Man. Secondly, i just want to see another good Spider-Man movie. A new screen re-interpretation does make me curious. I just hope the end result will be a good, smart and entertaining movie. And to tell you the truth, the only Raimi Spider-Man movie i really love is the second. I liked but felt a bit underwhelmed by the first.
