What's Spidey Doing To That Guy's Face!?


Merrick here...

New photos of Spidey's costume from Marc Webb's new SPIDERMAN film have gone online over at PopSugar.  I least I hope...that top image will look a helluva lot better when we see it in motion on the big screen, presumably as some kind of flip/fight move.  As is, know?

    This costume...

    by professor murder

    Are they going to add post effects/texture to his costume? Because by these pics of it, I'm not really liking it. Also, it looks like he has red gloves with blue paint all over his fingers. And again, those boots(or whatever they are) just aren't working.

    They best not fuck us with this "suit"

    by axelfoley

    I could see the actor's eyes in the lens. What's with that non-existent Spider on the back. What is this shit about? Silver metal bootie bottoms? Are they TRYING to fuck this up? It all starts with the suit--im telling you everything else can be PERFECT, but ruin the suit it'll distract from everything else.

    You know when the same person's photo feed pops up over and over again on Facebook and it grows steadily more annoying until you eventually start to think about deleting them? I'm feeling like that now. I'm sick of seeing Spider-Man running places, eating his lunch or thrusting his hips in some guy's face.

  • Feb. 4, 2011, 1:45 p.m. CST


    by goodguy

    The stripes are just bad design. PERIOD. The eyes look like a pair of broken Oakleys glued to the mask. The blue on the gloves... the silver on the shoes... And for shitsake, why are his cockandballs spraypainted black?! This costume is embarrassing.

    Stuff on his feet are web shooters?

    by MichaelH

    I just get this sinking feeling looking at this costume. The metal on the feet does seem to be part of it, and it looks like a mechanism. Not happy. They're taking Spider-Man where it's never been before, changing many things just for the sake of changing them. Are we ready for a gay Spider-Man? There's a reason for continuity with superheroes. Changes are OK if it goes someplace interesting, but I'm not seeing where this is going.

    There have been tons of new pics that aicn has'nt run showing Spidey swinging and crawling and they look sweet. They have chosen the funniest still they could to get a reaction and guess what.. You guys are so redic.. When you see Spidey take down that thug in the final film you'll not only appreciate that it WASNT cgi but also smile when you think back to how bad the thread made it look. Spidey's commin back and it's gonna be great!

    Not liking the Nike Air Spideys

    by juice willis

    <p>Sometimes the costume looks alright to me, and sometimes I hate the shit out of it.</p> <p>I'd have given him the black (non-symbiote) suit. That way you wouldn't have to explain PP's remarkable sewing skills (ala Raimey's suit). He'd just be a kid who paints a big bad-ass white spider on the front and back of some black tights.</p> <p>That would work perfect with the skinny-jean Peter Parker we look like we're getting.</p>

    by UltraTron

    to the ground and he can run faster. He can't turn off his sticky feet. So he just slips off the flip flops whenever he climbs something. His new catchphrase is "just a sec while I slip off my spidy flip-flops!" Then he springs into action.

    by cylon_conspiracy

    I'd be really concerned that some other photographer is getting these exclusive Spidey photos and not me. Those pictures are my bread and butter. Also, I'd be extra cautious about having a man giving me a blow-job in public. It might be dark out, but someone might be watching. Once it's revealed that Spiderman is gay, accusations that he's more of a threat than a help will be the least of his worries.

    Awful, awful costume... [Rant mode]

    by Desk

    Alongside Chris Reeve's Superman suit and Downey Jr's Iron Man armour, Maguire's Spider-Man outfit was one of the best ever translations of a superhero costume onto the big screen. Why be so arrogant and foolish as to screw around so radically with something so universally well-received? The only answers I can come up with is either the new production team's arrogant ambition to stamp their own identity on the franchise or a cynical desire to create a distinctive new line of merchandising. Either way, it's a fundamental misjudgement bound to draw the ire of potential cinema-goers who should be the film's guaranteed audience - the comic fans - and raises massive doubts about this production as a whole.

    by SithMenace

    I really kind of hate that costume. I thought they were gonna go with more of a Ditko look, but I guess that would have been too close to Raimi's film. That costume was highly modified, but it still had that classic Spider-Man look. More than this one anyway. Now I'm kind of worried about the Green Goblin costume for the second film.

    OMG! They should get a kick in the asss!! So many people are seeing the Spiderman suit prematurely. Surely you could get an official picture of Spiderman up soon! A photo for godsake! Instead of having pictures like Spiderman here facefucking some poor guy! The costume looks terrible. I'm trying to be an optimist cause I'm such a Spiderman fan but this is aweful! They think this is getting good publicity for the movie? People are loosing hope for this damn film. There is still enthusiasm for the film DESPITE the terrible photos of Spiderman. I mean- and why is Spidermans crotch BLACK! It looks like he burn it ironing his costume or something. Or is that a place to keep the symbiote warm? They are stretching the liberties you can take with the Spiderman costume really. They need some good photos to combat all the aweful ones popping up. Marketing department should get a kick in the ass.

  • but since they got rid of the red that normally goes around Spider-Man's waist/hips, it looks like the whole red part on his chest is just pointing down to his dick. The whole costume is like designed to lead your eyes towards his package. Maybe the spiderbite gave him an abnormally large dick, and he wants to show it off. I mean, he is a teenager.

    by jimmy_009

    Are they trying to draw attention to it on purpose? Because that's exactly what they're doing by making it the only part of the costume with that color. If that's what it looks like in the movie somebody should probably not be an art director.

    bilboring, I agree about Spider-Man 3

    by SithMenace

    Sandman and Goblin 2 for the main villains, have Brock turn right at the end, sort of like what they did with Harry at the end of Spider-Man 2. In fact the fast shot of the camera zooming into Venom's face should have been at the end of the film. Maybe even set up Electro or Kraven, or use the Lizard which you've been teasing about for three films. Have Connors mix the symbiote dna with lizard dna and inject himself halfway through the film, then don't show him again until the 4th movie. But there were other problems too. Sandman should have just been a bank robber, shouldn't have been Uncle Ben's killer (that one plot point stripped all three films of meaning) and should have had clearer intentions towards Spider-Man. Sometimes simple evil does actually work. Although we are talking about a villain that defeated with a vacuum cleaner in his first appearance. Harry should have been in his father's suit. It would have been a great mind fuck for Peter the first time he saw him, and the design was way cooler than Harry's. Change the mask if you don't want to repeat the first film. There should have been no drama between MJ and Peter except for maybe a little jealousy over Gwen and some confusion about his changed personality. Save Peter's drama for his competition with Eddie and his struggle with the symbiote. Oh and crime fighting. No Kirsten Dunst singing, just have her as the star in a musical with a great song, and intercut some drama with a villain while Peter's watching the play. Don't have MJ kidnapped for a third time. Try something different for a big finish, like Harry trying to kill her and Peter having to stop both him and Sandman. More J Jonah Jameson. But the biggest kick in the balls for SM3? No Danny Elfman. He was fired by Raimi and the film ended up being terrible. Kharma's a bitch. I did like evil Peter though, I thought that was funny as hell.

    Classic overreaction

    by Kammich

    Some of you are damning this movie, claiming you won't see it, and likening it to the "Twilight" franchise... based off of some fan-captured pics of a stuntman in the costume. Seriously? This is why a lot of "fanboys" get a bad reputation. Novel concept: wait for some fucking studio footage before you condemn the thing. You literally no NOTHING about this movie yet. None of us do. I'm not even a staunch defender of this film, or someone particularly excited about its prospects... I just get greatly annoyed at the infinitesimal reasons why a select few of you lose your shit.

    Thing to keep in mind about the suit

    by smackfu

    is that any spidersuit, including the last one, is going to look like absolute shit under sterile lighting and on a bad camera. The suit wasn't made to look good walking around a city street, it was made to look good under very specific lighting and camera conditions. The one professional, processed shot of this suit we've seen looks fantastic so I wouldn't worry about it. My only concern is the eyes. I hope the shiny metallic look is just for shooting functionality and will be different onscreen.

    Would rather have seen a Raimi directed "Spider-Man 4"

    by ChickenStu

    Preferably with Tobey Maguire as Spidey. Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 are pretty good movies (especially the second one which is flat out fucking AWESOME). The third one WAS a dissapointment, BUT it's not Raimi's fault, and I think he did the best with the material that the studios forced him to go with. And besides. For all of 3's faults, it still kept the emotional core intact - and I thought the resolution of the Parker/Osbourne story, and the emotion and pathos of the Sandman character was quite well executed. They just fucked it up by shoe-horning in Venom (a story-line which need a Spider-man movie of it's own). Some of the big-wigs at Marvel/Columbia say that this new reboot is a response to the "negative reaction" afforded to Spider-Man 3. Well, with a gross revenue of $890,871,626 in box office takings, not to mention merchandise and DVD sales... all I can say is - if that's considered a dissapointment in some way, then I want a life FULL of those kinds of dissapointments. (and contrary to popular belief, a lot of the reviews weren't all too bad). Should have given Raimi once more chance. This whole reboot idea seems a bit half-baked to me.

    Raimi's first two Spider-Man movies sucked. Aside from Spidey being a little light on the one-liners during the fights, what are these people complaining about? Kirsten Dunst's orthodontistry? Really? Those first two movies were absolutely amazing, with real care shown to the characters involved, and with no "make it black and edgy" modernization bullshit. Spider-Man and SM2 are great movies, among the best in the superhero genre. Blows my mind some people actually hated those movies.

    and Tobey McGuire was just horrible as Spidey to me. plus, the 2nd one was so long and boring (minus train fight but then it turned Jesusy with the arms spread out). also, the 2nd one was very "emo" to me. people may hate the "emo" sequence in 3 but that was quite funny to me (who knew Tobey could be funny?!) all I know is, I wont turn to SM1 or SM2 if Im bored, whereas I have turned to 3 plenty of times when I was bored. that last action scene was fuckin great TO ME the only reason TO ME that it is held in such high regards because there was no good superhero movies before then. now that we have Batman Begins and Dark Knight, we can make better judgements when it comes to hero films

    Allow me to enlighten you, creasybear, whyt he Raimi films suck

    by IndustryKiller!

    Macguire played Parker as a Revenge of the Nerds archetype, zero character development with one wide eyed "oh dear!" expression throughout all three films. There were seriously more subtle nerds on Save By the Bell. That's just not Peter Parker, who quickly after high school develops into a well adjusted and cool guy.<P>Don't get me started on Dunsts petulant, bland Mary Jane. Showing NONE of the verve of her comic book counterpart she becomes a faceless love interest who seems to have the identical "We love each other....nevermind no we don't....but we do!" conversation over and over and over again.<P>Then there are the wasted villains. Does Norman Osbourne seem like The Joker to Peter Parker's Batman? Not in the Sam Raimi film he didn't. In that ridiculously horrible costume he comes off as perfunctory villain du jour, despite the excellent casting of Willem Defoe. Cackling around and looking stupid, that's the extent of the role. Likewise for Spider Man 2, they cast another great character actor then sidelined him with a ridiculous "Batman the TV show" level plot device (I NEED THE TRIDIUM!) that had nothing to do with anything. All the while the lead actors continue to suck mind you, and James Franco looks bored with a look of "God, I wish they would give me something to do, I'm the best actor in this fucking movie."<P>While raimi is adept at shooting fight sequences, he has no sense of character, and Peter's relationships seem more like a hassle rather than the lifeblood of the film. Then there's his tendency to lay on the humor a little, how shall we say, thick? By the end of SM2 I wanted to scream "I fucking get it! Parker has bad luck, move the fuck on!" Aunt may is a non-entity, and while J.K. Simmons is entertaining, he's hardly the gruff, intimidating, Bill O'Reilly-ish, egomaniac who treads dangerously close to being a villain of a different kind portrayed in the best iterations of the comic, it's just impossible to take him seriously.<P>Then there's Spider man 3, which is every bit as awful a movie as Batman & Robin. A huge fucking joke of a film that should have never made it past the script stage. When people use the term "hate crime on cinema" it's about cynical pieces of shit like Spider Man 3, in which every bit of Raimi's disdain at having to make it is right there on screen, poking you with a sharp stick.

  • Feb. 4, 2011, 5:06 p.m. CST


    by Kammich

    That is some inspired casting, re: Garfield as Bates. Hopefully there's never a need to resurrect Psycho(again), but he'd make a brilliantly creepy Norman. Also, good job posting those other set pics. The costume looks 10 times better and thats only due to the slightest change of lighting and ambience in the pictures. I think we can all agree that the studio shot looked excellent, so I'm not judging a damn thing by street shots. Re: Raimi's Spider-man movies... I could write essays on those movies. I grew up a Spidey fan and those movies came along in my formative years as a film goer(I was 13 when the first one came out). Honestly, the bottom line is that they're pure comic book pulp. They captured the true feel of a comic book more than any comic book films before or after. But that doesn't necessarilly make them great films: they've aged very, very poorly. They will go down as a triumph of their time, I think; they were arguably the driving force behind the comic book movie craze. But it was time for some fresh blood. Webb has potential based off of a limited resume. The casting has been outside of the box and fairly inspired. I'm not going to judge anything beyond that until I see some studio footage, because anything else would be unfair.

    by cylon_conspiracy

    and more concerned with all these shots of Spider-Man having sex with strange men in public spaces. Another site has a pic of him where it appears he's being anally penetrated. Clearly the storyline for this new Spidey is going to be much different than the previous films. Nothing wrong with a homosexual Peter Parker, but this isn't the way to tell the fans that's where the story is headed. That story element should have been revealed with more tact and respect. As for the costume itself, it's going to look fine in the actual MOVIE. There are probably multiple costumes and this is the "Running around outside and being slammed against stuff" costume. And you can fix a lot of stuff with the computers these days. I bet those shoes will be digitally removed in post. The black crotch is probably undies showing through and that will probably be fixed in post too.

    by SithMenace

    I also grew up a Spidey fan, reading the three main titles and then Mcfarlane's. The Raimi films were a blessing at the time, despite some mistakes, but you're right, those films are not aging well. The reboot looks like it's gonna have some great action scenes though. I especially like the shot of the cop swiping at Spidey as he climbs the truck.

  • Feb. 4, 2011, 5:40 p.m. CST


    by CreasyBear

    I respect your reasoning, but some of the things you seem to wish the movie had are things that wouldn't have worked. For example, JJJ being a dangerous almost-villain would be meaningless in that movie unless that was the arc of his character. That part of his character is true in the comics' sweeping arcs, but that isn't where the time-constricted movie is going. Being a bombastic blowhard to create some friction for Peter's attempts to gain his footing post-school (and to get some of the best laughs from the audience) fit the story well. And for the love-story angle, the opening line of narration makes it clear the story is heading for the more classic tale of getting-the-girl despite the odds, rather than a story of the multi-layered intricacies of a complex relationship. I suppose they could have cut out all the superhero action to make more room for this. But I'm glad they didn't. As for Doc Ock's tritium, yeah, it was a Maguffin, but I don't consider that old plot element to be a story-killer, especially in a comic book adaptation. For Maguire, the anger at the robber, the sadness of losing Ben, and the frustration of not being able to manage all the elements of his life in SM2 were far more than him just aping Screech. With moments like the New Yorker citizen reaction to SM's appearance, the recklessness of his first foray into web-swinging against the robber, the dizzying feel of the skyscraper swings, and Peter's speech to Mary Jane in the hospital, I found a lot to like in those first two movies. I respect your posts and your opinions, but I just plain enjoyed the experience of watching those movies.

    the Cap costume, I could see where it was coming from. The Thor costume eventually grew on me when I realised it was a blend of just about everything in the comics. The GL costume is pretty spot on, with added texture and a change of glove colour but spot on. EVEN the god awful helmet on Magneto LOOKS like a helmet (on a 'tard) but this fucking thing? Why??? Just stick to what we know, it works. Don't mind the actor or the mechanical shooters or the small eyes or virtually anything else really but that costume is absolutely ugly, it won't look better in motion or under 'proper lighting' we've seen stills, we've seen the whole thing and honestly I've seen better cosplay than this.

    for the following reasons. there is no website and sony have not booked that domain yet. they have just announced the cast. the movie is out next year. spiderman 4 is sony's big tent pole movie for next summer. having looked at the official site, there is nothing there for spiderman 4. so all these pics are fake. the marketing campaign will begin to crank up from the summer. the only thing we do know is who is in it and not what the film is about.

    by Ivan_Mtl

    Everything I have seen so far leads me to believe that the new Spiderman reboot is going to be an epic failure. I've always wondered if filmmakers know that they are making a bad movie while they are in the middle of shooting it. That is the one question I would love to be asked during the publicity tour for this inevitable critical and (hopefully) financial failure.

    by IndustryKiller!

    Do you fucking guys honestly have no concept of how films are COLOR CORRECTED after their shot? That the film is shot in 3-D, which darkens pictures, so it is probably being shot in a higher color contrast than it will appear on screen? Are you stupid enough to not see that the material on the fabric of the suit is thin ergo the cod piece is showing through in the bright light and will CLEARLY not be seen in the actual film. You don't get that the pics of him on top of that guy, which you've met with a disgusting amount of homophobia, is just rehearsal of a stunt?? Honestly, none of this registers?? Look at the god damn official promo shot. Fucking hell, imbeciles, this is seriously one of the most pathetic talkbacks....ever.

    Wanted: CGI house for digital costume replacement.

    by Movietool

    Need professional CG house to digitally replace every frame of hideous Spider-Man costume in upcoming film re-boot. Current outfit looks like Saban's Power Rangers: the Speed Skating Adventures. Need to make it look like traditional Spider-Man costume that EVERYONE ON THE PLANET knows and loves. We can't really explain why we let the director screw around with the second most iconic and recognizable superhero costume on the planet, but let's just say that photos of Avi Arad murdering nuns and clubbing baby seals was involved. Candidate will replace our in-house CGI department, who can't seem to get through two frames of work before falling over in fits of convulsive laughter.

    Television Spidey

    by SchwarzenGollum

    This is starting to look like a Joel Schumacher revamped version of the 70s "Spider-Man" television series. The costume doesn't look very good - looks like a downgrade from the Raimi version.

  • Now this isn't a hard fast rule, but a lot of times it seems like they start mucking around with the costume, taking creative liberties with it, in order to compensate for a bad script.

How will the big ass web shooters and mirror lenses and web-less red spaces all magically become part of an adequate Spider-Man costume by "color correction"? We all need the benefit of your awesome knowledge. Face-fucking that guy makes this horrible suit look better than it should. It provides context for this exquisitely effeminate design. But on its own, as a Spider-Man costume, (and dog help the movie if those silver slippers are for real) this is a perfect example of ruining a good thing.

    "you'll see the reflection of Sam Raimi shaking his head"

    by smackfu

    Yeah because Sam Raimi's filmmaking sensibilities are just so great. The first movie had Spiderman fighting a Power Ranger (take that, Gobby!), the second one was great, and the third one was a late term abortion. Let's not forget he cast Toby MacGuire and Kirsten Dunst in the two main roles. And used organic webshooters. And actually put a scene in the movie where just after noticing his body going through strange changes, Peter wakes up in the morning with this entire bed covered in sticky white goo. Let's be honest here, things came together very well for Spiderman 2, but for the most part for the entire trilogy Raimi was basically restraining himself (or being restrained) from making silly slapstick.

    Looking quite awful so far...

    by jack Bauer

    Unless there's some CGI addition to the suit then its totally s**t, I hate saying it as I'm a massive late 60's to present day Spidey fan but this suit makes the web slinger look like he's auditioning as a gay dancer on a ballroom dancing show (no ballroom in the suit tho). As for these set piece photo's, what can I say, Spidey is getting a blow job!! I can understand getting a bit of the Spidey fun from the comics in but the way its translated is so camp its wrong. The hand stand into the back of a jeep from other footage looked silly, it didn't have the dynamics of the comic version. Spidey would have bounded in doing a front flip 10ft in the air into the truck, not that limp wristed handstand. I can see this film is aimed at the Twighlight watchers, all hormones and tender bits, it looks like its going to lack the grit needed and be a 'girly' flick.. Sorry ladies...

    Well, these pics all seem to come from the same scene they're shooting. With that in mind, the one studio shot that's been sent out looks a lot better and color corrected ect. There are some shots out now of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone(Playing Gwen Stacy, MJ isnt' going to be in this movie at all) Also, I highly doubt Sony's strategy is MAKE EM THINK IT'S SHIT! Though I do agree, as is the norm here, people are over reacting like crazy at this point. I'd say after some real footage, some official pics, and a synopsis maybe we'll have a better idea what to expect. PS it's completely fucking retarded to claim these pictures aren't real, of course they're real. They might not be SONY official, but they're real pics of the movie being shot, there are even videos of him doing a very cool web slinging stunt with a bunch of NYPD cars following below him.

    by Kai_Mah'gra

    ....every single successive leaked image has been violently worse that the previous one, and it's bad enough they fucked up the suit design with these cutsie new stuff that just doesn't work. This just brings back horrible memories from when they fucked up Superman Returns and after that first released image with the faded colors and leathered our Supes suit and the plastic looking logo, it was all downhill from there. If you can't get a simple thing like an iconic suit design which has lasted and worked effectively for 4 plus decades, then how in the world can you be trusted to get the story right at all. This movie is going to be a fuck-up of epic and colossal proportions. And then to add insult to injury, the McGuire Spiderman movies are not so far removed and will be looming over this new one like a constant reminder in the background, of when Spiderman actually worked on the big screen (the first 2, that is). I feel so bad for that Garfield kid. his career was just beginning to take off after Social network and all. Now he's just going to join Brandon Routh in the crap heap of 'could-have-been' actors who saw their careers derailed so early on with one fatal decision.

    to the point where it got ridiculous. i could see there argument back then. cgi was dream for hollywood. they didnt have to build anything. everything could be done on computer. sometimes it was spectacular like spidey vs doc oc in the second film. if you look at hulk, that is where it looked stupid. but universal agreed with those who said a painted green body builder in a ripped shirt would look stupid and that audiences wouldnt by it. so we got cgi hulk instead. fantastic four looked cheap as chips as david dickenson says and looking back those films are odd. all the actors were really miscast except chicklis. and fishbourne added gravitas as the voice of the silver surfer.

    Amateur production photos

    by LLcruize2

    Really, folks forming opinions based on unauthorized amateur production photos? You don't think any kind of coloring enhancement, cleaning up, will be done? Because we all know exactly what is shot is exactly what we see in the final film. Sheep. As I have posted elsewhere, I am stoked that we are seeing so many practical suited photos of Spidey in action. I enjoyed the Raimi trilogy, but really got tired of the CGI Spidey. I like the fact we are seeing so much practical action.

    by AsimovLives

    After colour correction and all that, the suit will look very differently. This is nothing new, it even harks back to when the movies were shot in black and white. It's not the colour of the suit in those photos that worries me, if you know what i mean.

    I agree with the haters

    by atalcot

    This costume change sucks. It honestly looks like the designer used the 1970s TV show as the basis for this outfit. I would have preferred if the costume had looked more like it was pieced together and modified from things bought over the internet, but this does not look like something a teenager could scrap together. I think the basic rule with superhero movie costumes is to either follow the original design as close as possible, or make it more functional and realistic .

    by AsimovLives

    I have to agree with you in that i did missed the witticism and snarks from Spidey in the Raimi movies. The nly occasion i remmber in Raimi's first spidey movie where he says soemthing to the effect that resembled Spidey's trademark snarks was when the Green Goblin invaded JJJ's office, and Spidey showed up, JJJ says soemthing silly and spidey shuts him up with a webshot and says "Shut up, mommy and daddy are talking". That really sounded like soemthing spidey would say. Besdies that, the traditional spidey Snark was absent. As for the drama, well, form what i know, Spider-Man was deliberatly creeated as a character to whom life didn't give him easy breaks, Stan Lee evne said that Peter Parker's life was deliberatly made as an soap-opera, where his personal problems would be as troublesome as the super-villain of the week. So, tragedy and angst were always part of Peter Parker/Spider-Man's character. The difference between the comics and the movie is that in the comics he has his sarcastic sense of humour to help him go through, while that was considerably toned down almost to the point of not beign there in the Raimi movies. Like you and many others, i did missed the snarks from Spidey. But there is not to say those will not be in the new reboot. I mean, the movie is being directed by a guy who made a cynical romantic comedy full of snarks and bites. And if you have seen THE SOCIAL NETWORK, Andrew Garfield is quite apt at delivering deadpan and snark humour. I think the guy is very well chosen for the role. And as for angst teen tragedy, well, remember, the character was DELIBERATLY created that way. Just because a movie has a teen agnsty character as the lead doens't automaticalçly make it bad. TWILIGHT is just a bad example of that. A good writer/filmmaker can make good of it. Beside,s teenhood IS ANGST. you forgot how it was already? Not that i would blame you for that, i also deliberatly try to forget my teenhood too, i fucking hated that era of my life, adolescence sucks! Adolescence is the age of retardness.

    orbots commander

    by AsimovLives

    Maybe that suit is just his first suit, and he's trying to get them right by trial and error, perhaps? If there was one thing that i do criticise about Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man movie is that they got to the final spider-man suit way too quickly. I would had liked to see him more with his "wrestling suit" and with some other intermediary experiemental suits until he finally gets it right with the official dayjob suit. One thing that always made me wonder about the version of the organic webs of Spider-Man is: why doesn't he uses his own web silk to make his suit? Imagine how strong and though a cloth made of such type of web silk would be. Because, in real life, spider's web silk is the thoughest thing in nature compared to their size, weight and thickness. It's known that comparative to it's weight and thickness, spider silk is proportionally stronger them steel and half the tensil strengh of kevlar. One type of spider, the Darwin's bark spider, produces a web silk that is proportionally 10 times stronger then kevlar! Imagine that transposed to the proportions of an human, Spider-Man's web silk would make his suit stronger and thougher then chainmal and kevlar many times over. His suit would literally be bullet, impact and fire proof to all but a few cases. Why has that never been brough up in comics and movies is a mystery to me.

I have a profound respect and admiration for spiders. they are amazing animals. and recently, they have ben extensively studied due to the fantastic nature of their webs, which have properties that makes them the holy grail of fabric technology. Besides, spiders cool! I'm dead tired of seeing them as portait as villains in movies just because of their looks. Makes me want to root for the giant spider whenever a designated hero has to fight and kill one to show his hero status. Fucking spider killers!

    compared to tobey maguire's suit

    by cylon_conspiracy

    This one looks more functional... the material on the new one looks like it serves as armor. Maybe knife/bullet proof? Maguire's suit just looks like pajamas in comparison. Just for my info, does anyone know how many Spider-Man suits they used for the first two films? Surely they have more detailed costumes for close-ups, and more rough costumes that can be messed up in an action sequence?

    floatingholmes, effeminate?? And monolith, promo shot

    by IndustryKiller!

    Oh jesus christ, Im not even going to respond to this homophobic horseshit that the suit is somehow more "gay" than other spider man suits. If you don't like some of the aesthetic touches, that's fair enough and I won't fault you, but there was not NEARLY this much complaining when the released the first official, color corrected shot of Garfield in the costume. Not even close to this much bitching. And again, if you somehow think a stunt rehearsal is indicative of ANYTHING in this film you're wrong, not just a differing of opinion, but flat out fucking wrong. You, nor I, nor anyone else can tell a thing from a stunt rehearsal other than the simple fact that Spider Man will be tossing a guy with his legs, and something tells me you don't have a problem with that basic concept, which is by any estimation kinda cool. And monolith here's the promo shot of Garfield in the costume, juxtaposed with Macguire in costume

  • Feb. 5, 2011, 2:10 p.m. CST

    Ok here it is, Garfield next to Macguire, both in costume

    by IndustryKiller! From now on you don't get to gripe about a bunch of spy shots, you have to compare the way it will actually look in the film to the way it actually looks on film in the original. No more cherry picking. You cannot tell me that somehow Macguire looks somehow objectively better than Garfield. Especially given that Garfields frame is MUCH closer to that of the comic than Macguire's more squat frame.

  • Feb. 5, 2011, 2:25 p.m. CST

    Industrykiller! These shots show the costume better...

    by FloatingHolmes

    That's why there's more complaining. You can't fix that awful suit in post. And as to it being effeminate: replacing the clean lines of the original costume with these flares and stripes and dark splotches on the crotch, while removing the belt so the entire red frontal design looks like a big arrow pointing down at the darkened crotch sure as hell is not a sexually-neutral change. It's not homophobic to infer something odd going on there. They're putting all that emphasis on the stuntman's crotch (before color-correcting it, if you please) for SOME reason. If you know what it is, let us in on it.

  • Feb. 5, 2011, 2:45 p.m. CST

    Its the LOOK of the design. And since the complaints here have been largely about color and "gayness", I think we have our argument defined. As far as the color and the codpiece, those issues are worked out by the promo shot and the fact that you're a complete moron if you think the cod piece will be showing through the fabric int eh actual film. Like handicapped level IQ stupid if you really think the filmmakers would allow that. As for the "gayness', which again I think has a lot more to do with the color than anything else, well that says a lot more about the person leveling the charge than it does about the design. Sounds like some of the homophobic nerds in this talkback have some soul searching to do.

    by AsimovLives

    I know that the Green Goblin is a popular enemy of Spidey. But personally, i never liked him much. You comented on the absense of Green Goblin in the new movie. Which makes me suspicious that in this movie, Gwen Tracy will not get killed and will reurn for the second movie. Remember how in Raimi's Spiderman movies it was Mary Jane Watson who was Peter Parker's love right from the start, right from the high school years. Hell, they were even neighbours who knew each other for years already, maybe even since ever. I suspect that in this new reboot, it's Gwen Stacy that will be Spiderman's eternal paramour. They are doing a reverse of Raimi's movies, i suspect. You nkow waht i mean? In Raimi's first Spidey movie, Mary Jane didn't got killed by the Green Goblin when put in a similiar predictment of Gwen. I ssupect that at least in the first spiderman reboot movie, Gwen will survive and continue in the second movie, and maybe even more. I do hope for the return of Spidey's repartee and quips, so famous in the comics. You said it all about the motivation and why Spidey's humour is so important as part of his character. I ssupect that his superpowers have Peter Parker a smart-alec personality that is common in empowered people. That he uses to make light of his life problems, or to irritate his enemies into making them brek their concentration is one of the thing i always loved about Spidey. His quipping was legenday, and i wish to see it in the movies. As for your suspicion that Andrew Garfield mightpull it off due to his way of speaking as you know it, well, remember, he's an actor, it's his job to imporsonate peoplewho are different them himself. Actros do that all the time. Actors do that to their typecasted characvters even. Rarely actors play exact copies of themselves onscreen. Clint Eastwood and Charles Bronson were not a rigth winger near-viligant in real life. Eli Wallach is not mexican. Sly Stallone is not a badass vietnam veteran warrior. actors can change how they act and talk for the demands of a role. It's their job to impersonate people that they aren't. And i know that Garfeild is quite good at comedy, even understated comedy, as seen in THE SOCIAL NETWORK. And he had a very close Peter Parker snark moment in that scene when he discovers he was cast out of the Facebook's board. When he almost punches Timberlak, and the later flinches like a girl, garfuield snarked "What i love about being with you, Sean, is that you make me look like a badass in comparison". That's a very Spider-Man snark moment, the type of deadpan humour that's spiderman's trademark. Me, i think the guy will delivers. It's not him which will make me skeptical about the movie. Funny enough, it's not even the director that might make me skeptical of this movie. Many have comented that the director never made a big budget movie like this before. Well, neither did Chritopher Nolan when he made his first Batman movie, and that turned out OK (understatment for effect).

    by vettebro

    (Gayest city in America) look it up. These pics and that costume remind me of this website. GAY!!!

  • The "gay" jokes and color and cod piece has nothing to do with the design of the costume... As I said before, you get 10 different artists to draw spider-man... You'll get 10 different illustrations/styles... But the design of the costume will be the same... It won't have a stripe going down the side, or gloves with red on one side and blue on another... Etc... What you are conflicted with is window dressing... Like the embossed "S" in superman returns, or the color, or the embossed webbing in The previous movies... All of that is not relevant to the design. That's artistic style.

  • Maybe this is an intermediary suit, an experiment, a trial and error thing before spidey gets to his final spider-suit. We don't know. We know nothing about it. i think it would rather be wiser if we don't jump to conclusions still this early. We just do not know.

    Spiderman's Amazing Ass

    by Bruce_the_Shark

    The costume's awesome and the new Spidey's got a fantastic body -- and an awesome ass -- oh so sexy. Not every superhero has to be totally jacked. Peter Parker is still a kid in this movie. Many more production shots here: Raimi's movies are so overrated Maguire was an utter bore. And Maguire's suit was really fake looking. They tried too hard, made it too perfect looking with the muscle padding and shadings and the worse was the fake skin-tone muscle they added on the "torn" suit. And the silvery reflecting webbing was annoying, not to mention the fact that Spiderman was nearly entirely CGI -- especially when swinging and leaping. I'm so glad to see they're doing real stunt work for this movie. Watching Raimi's movies is like watching video game animation.

  • Wow! I mean, really, what we have this movie to compare with to get such extreme reactions? What we really got? 500 DAYS OF SUMMER? How can that even compare?

    They seriously need to rethink this shit.

    by Eli_Cash

    It isn't too late, but if they release this film with this costume, there's about zero chance of me seeing it in theatres. And I'm not over-reacting. I don't have much investment in the spider-man mythos. But this costume is crap. Some people will probly try to defend the film when it comes out. "yeah, the costume looks stupid, but it's well written, well acted, etc." Fine, I'll plan to watch it on DVD then. But the only reason to see a movie in theatres is the visual experience. I want to see something that looks either cool or at least realistic. This is neither. Realistic would be a cheap looking spandex suit that a real highschool student might be able to afford. Cool is something like in the first 3 movies. THis costume looks just as expensive as the previous one, with an added layer of stupid. And it's pretty obvious that the most glaringly stupid element isn't something that'll be fixed in post. The inexplicable black crotch is in the official photo. I suggest that people who don't like the suit, do what I'm doing. Lets make this a theatre boycott. Wait for the dvd cuz they sure ain't justifying the cost of seeing this on the big screen. Don't care how witty it is, or even if its true to the comics. It looks like crap, so why would I want to see it on a huge screen, in 3d no less?

    To the supposed 'tech' guys on here..

    by jack Bauer

    Since this isn't a CGI costume uunlike Green Lantern then the correction work will be painfully limited, you don't create a costume that will need a shed load of cgi fixing that's eating a huge hole out of the budget. The normal route is to have an actor / stuntman in costume and a fully cgi creation for some of the more unworkable shots BUT there has to be continuity throughout. What you are seeing roughly is what you will get, the strange zipper type markings are part of the costume since they are in places that cannot be hidden (normally along the seams). All you are going to get is maybe a colour correction (I bloody hope so) and some wire removal. I have this awful feeling that the feet are going to stay although I do hope they remove them as stuntman only items. The black crotch could be a part of the wire rig coming throun the costume but again I have to say you see it on the British actor as well in non wire shots...oh dear.... What I think people just refusing to acknowledge about the costume is the design, what you see is not going to change any if at all and the fans see its a complete bastardisation of the classic spidey costume. This is spidey does BH 90210.

    Why don't all you cry babies wait the year and a half until the movie comes out before you tear it apart. It's a work in progress for crying out loud and your basing your rage on a few amateur photos during a night shoot. I remember the same outcry back when Christian Bale first appeared in his goofy Batman suit and everyone when batshit crazy, saying it looked like crap. And it did look goofy in those first images. But the film turned out OK and folks forgot all the initial hubbub. I can't believe how obsessed people have become with Spidey's darkened crotch area. (OK, I've become similarly obsessed with his ass, but that's another story.) The suit has shaded areas, including the crotch region. Guaranteed you won't even notice it in the film. You probably won't notice the silvery foot lining either. But we'll see. I for one am excited and am sure Webb's film will be much more enjoyable than Raimi's forgettable tripe. In the end, the film's success will reflect the story, characterizations and acting, not the fucking suit.

Just as good as the one featured in the first three films. All the homophobe comments kills me when the suit is no more tight or "gay" looking than the suit ever has looked. And yes the finished film will be color timed and enhanced and the suit will look a lot different than what you are seeing in these shots. Has anyone here seen the suit from the first three films in person? Watch the making of features found on the DVD's/Blu-ray's.
