Marc Webb's Spider-Man will be AMAZING! Plus your first high res look at the full outfit and webshooters!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. This is a no brainer, but I'm glad Sony's finally pulling the trigger on the title THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN for their reboot.

Not only that, but they released a nice picture of Andrew Garfield in the suit, striking a Spidey-pose with our first clear look at the mechanical web shooters! Click the below picture for the much larger version!




The suit's looking more and more like Spider-Man 2099 to me, but I still dig it. I'm very much in love with the idea of the mechanical web-shooters. I mean, if you're going to reboot Spider-Man you might as well add in some of the comic goodness that Raimi didn't.

I always loved that the limitations of Spider-Man's mechanical shooters handicapped him in a way. One panel that will always stick with me is, I believe, from Kraven's Last Hunt when Spidey uses all his fluid and is knocked off a building. The only way he could stop his fall was by reach out and sticking his hand to the brick wall, but the force of his fall dislocated his arm.

It gives our hero a weakness and will, hopefully, make the action scenes even that much more intense.

Also good call on the title. I guess we'll be seeing this trilogy taking comic titles, which is fantastic. First we have The Amazing Spider-Man and then what? Spectacular Spider-Man and Peter Parker, Spider-Man, right?

What do you guys think?

    The Unamazing Spiderman

    by shutupfanboy

    Why do I think the musical costume looks better? Hiding the cod piece I see.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:16 p.m. CST

    Looks better in the dark

    by Zauriel

    Than it does with the horrible light of day as in those on-the-set shots. Hopefully this movie takes place entirely at night.

  • Ah well... "Amazing Spider-Man" is still the far better title. Nice pic.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:17 p.m. CST

    Perfect title.

    by Kammich

    Back in '04, the rumored title to the sequel was either "Amazing Spider-man" or "Spectacular Spider-man" before they opted for the much more generic "2." So I'm very happy to see that Webb and co. decided to go with the right name here. And also, they're 2-for-2 with studio shots. This looks tremendous, and is a testament to the fact that people need to stop judging this movie off of god damned spy pics.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:18 p.m. CST

    Looking good so far

    by reaper28

    but I'll wait to see it in action in a trailer before I decide whether I'm gonna bother ...

    I feel like such a nitpicky fanboy but...

    by skycrapper

    I'm still not digging the blue fingers or the non-belt look of the suit.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:19 p.m. CST

    One criticism I will raise...

    by Chewtoy

    Those gloves are a mess, and make his hands about as easy to make out as a Bay Transformers design. Chopping up the lines of his gloves with random blue bits just makes them hard to read. Poor design choice. Otherwise, as I said, the pic looks good.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:21 p.m. CST

    Agreed Chewtoy

    by reaper28

    I'm getting a Spider 2099 vibe about them ...

    Hiding not just the codpiece...

    by TheBigDogg

    But the weird shiny sandals too.

  • i have to see it in the movie in full motion to decide how good it really is.

    Spider-Man Upgrade 2.0

    by FloatingHolmes

    Snazzier. Razzle-Dazzle! Are these guys on crack!? Marc Webb: "Please let me direct the next Spider-Man movie so I can piss all over the costume and make it mine mine mine!" Does anyone else see a hint of "silver slippers" down in the shadowy foot region?

  • I'm digging the eye's... Remind me of the 70s/80s TV show... Oh well...

    by jimmy_009

    Like the whole thing got dipped in motor oil at some point and he couldn't quite get it out of all the nooks and crannies. That coupled with the off-colored cod piece and the cheap looking black lines just under the knees make this look TERRIBLE. Fire that costume designer, because it's a joke.

    Looks OK bar the silly flourishes on the gloves

    by The_Motorcycle_Boy

    Typical case of "this will look kewl!" but it doesn't. Will all of people who dumped on the fabulous costume in Raimi's film do so on this, because Webb's costume looks far too advanced for a kid to make than Raimi's ever did.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:35 p.m. CST

    Where does he get that high-tech outfit!??!

    by darthwaz1

    WTF they did this in the last series too! He's a poor kid, how does he get this state of the art sci-fi material for his costume??

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:35 p.m. CST

    Re: Web-shooters

    by Kammich

    I agree that the organic webs were one of the better deviations from the Cameron/Raimi stuff, but there's nothing wrong with returning to the web-shooters. They highlight Parker's budding genius and they're always a good way to ratchet up tension in fight scenes when they break or run out of fluid. And don't immediately assume that Parker is the one who develops them. Parker's parents have already been cast, most likely for flashbacks, but I wouldn't be surprised if they have Richard Parker developing said formula before his untimely death, and Peter simply picks up where he left off and fills in the blanks to finish it. Not THAT far fetched, especially for a movie about, you know... a dude with spider powers fighing a 6-foot-tall lizard.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:38 p.m. CST

    He has amazing powers . . . as a SEAMSTRESS

    What a fucking bunch of shit. What more is there to say about spiderman? Fuck you hollywood forever in hell, get a fucking new idea, or at least take an old one and do something new with it. Or, you know, keep up the same shit until eventually only three movies are released each year, Batman, Superman and Spiderman, and each year they tell the same fucking tired ass origin story yet another time.

    I Think You're High

    by THX1968

    On one hand you call out Raimi on the organic web-shooters, while lauding Webb for throwing in some "comic goodness" that Raimi somehow failed to provide by not using mechanical web shooters. HAVE YOU SEEN THE FUCKING COSTUME!?!? Is that "comic goodness"? I sure don't hail Spider-Man 2099 as a classic comic. As for Raimi, Spidey 1 and 2 was chock full of classic Marvel "comic goodness", web shooters be damned. And Parker's web shooters DID malfunction in 2, or was it 3. Funny, I don't remember giving a shit about the organic web shooters at all. As for the title, who gives a shit? This looks like a big fucking turd.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:47 p.m. CST

    The Amazing Basketball-Man

    In all seriousness, I think this movie will be awesome even though that costume has yet to grow on me. Need a trailer stat!

    What I don't like...

    by Celicynd

    First, The picture conveniently covers up the dark groin area and darkens out his boots so as not to show the WTF inducing silver sandles. The other thing I have an issue with (and it can be seen better with the original shot of him without his mask) is the texturing. It looks like when some artist is feeling lazy drawing Spider-Man in the comic, and decides not to actually draw the arcs between each of the radial webbing lines. His mask and body have just one curve going over each "horizontal" line instead of individual curves betwen the "vertical" lines. Its very lazy looking. I think they could have just toned down all the black/dark indentations textures on the costume, added full texturing of the webbing, and it would have looked 100x better.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:51 p.m. CST

    Notice the shoes ain't being shown

    by donkingkong

    no silver/grey tips ging the sneaker look? Must still be working on it.

  • This is bullshit Raimi got it right and they shouldn't have changed to mechanical webshooters He has spider powers of strength and sticking to walls Why don't they make it he needs fucking suction cups aswell on his hands and knees

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:54 p.m. CST

    Still not impressed with the suit.

    by D.Vader

    Bleh. I need to see this thing in action.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:54 p.m. CST

    Holy Complainers, Batman!

    by Acappellaman

    Will you people shut the hell UP?!? For the love of God, the costume looks like Spider-Man is supposed to look. If YOU made a Spider-Man outfit, would YOU keep your feet unprotected, or build in some kind of protection since you'll, you know, be WALKING and stuff?? I can't believe all the whining here. Crazy! <p> Most importantly, try to suspend reality a little bit. In the real world, are scientists and brilliant math whizzes good designers? No. If a real world genius tried to design their own superhero costume, it would look AWFUL. Most people of that incredible intelligence just can't design to save their lives. But this is based on a comic book, people. If the costume looked like something an actual high school geek would make - red and blue sweats and a ski mask with webs drawn on with a sharpee or something, then you'd complain about it not looking like the comic book. But since it actually looks like the costume from the comics, you're complaining about how he wouldn't be able to afford the materials for it?!? I swear, with some of you Hollywood just can't win. If you hate the costume, don't see the movie. Stop bitching about it. Holy crap!

  • Don't get caught up in (or perpetuate) all the hyperbole. We have no idea if this movie is gonna be any good or not, and we won't know until the film hits the theaters. Ease up on the fanboy pre-release circle jerks.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:54 p.m. CST

    I thought the shoes were stunt man apparel

    by Larry Sellers

    Because no one in his right mind would injure his feet just because someone might critique them as part of the new costume.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:55 p.m. CST


    by Grinning White Skull

    Not only does the uniform look awful in bad light but the aesthetics of the photo itself look cheap and without any imagination. This production just continues to fuck it up with every new shot. Are those webs on the mask or...a grid? Drawn with a ruler? The seams on the gloves look so damn UGLY. This lack of understanding applied to the design (along with the photo having no sense of imagination to enhance its appeal) and the more it moves away from the classic suit's design shows such a cluster-fuck of design by committee. And to my thinking this underscores everything else that has been recooked by too many chiefs in this cinematic kitchen.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 2:56 p.m. CST

    hmmm how come spidey isnt' straddling a guy in the promo pic?

    by fat_rancor_keeper

    seems like I've seen more pics of spidey doing that than legit promo pics. anyway, seriously - the new image looks great and I dig the Amazing title. It's always been assumed and rumored the movie would be called that so I have no idea why they waiting so damn long to announce the title officially. I'm hoping for good things from this reboot.

    by MattmanReturns

    To be fair, "The Incredible Hulk" also came out round the same time as Dark Knight. And really, what else are they gonna do, call it "Spider-Man Again"?

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 3:05 p.m. CST

    very clever, marketeers

    by soma_with_the_paintbox

    That pose hides the very things that make the costume look like ass: the weird spider emblem whose sole purpose seems to be to emphasize the boy's crotch and his nike trainer type boots

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 3:05 p.m. CST

    Just FYI, that wasn't in Kraven's Last Hunt

    by Steve Rogers

    The arm dislocation moment happens in the first Puma story - was back in the black costume era. Drawn by Ron Frenz I believe. I'm sure someone cleverer than me can cite the exact issue number!

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 3:07 p.m. CST

    yet to be seen... a few things to nit pik

    by houbou

    For now, the nit pik is... That costume kinda looks very high tech for a kid with no money. With that suit, I can't wait to see how they will explain Spidey's ability to cling to walls etc.. The good... so far.. Web shooters, that's great, it's very much old school spidey. This means that Peter Parker is a whiz/nerd kid. The fact it's not organic means there is a limit. Hopefully, this will somehow be felt in some of the scenes..

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 3:09 p.m. CST

    Notice they "blacked out" the silver slippers

    by Astronut

    I really hope those ghey slippers were just for the stunt work and not part of his actual costume.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 3:09 p.m. CST

    Here's the problem with the web shooters...

    by phifty2

    ...Now, when they need tension, someone will just say "Uhhh, how about we have him run out of web fluid?" "Works for me." We KNOW he will run out or they will get damaged and WE KNOW that he will prevail anyway so why not just do away with this lame "tension building" device. And I mean device as "a means to add emotion" not "mechanical device."

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 3:09 p.m. CST


    by MattmanReturns

    Yeah I don't think an overly dark tone will fit Spider-Man, but we'll see. I think each superhero movie's tone should fit the character. The first Iron Man found the perfect comedic balance for that character. The Dark Knight obviously required a dark tone. I know everyone's down on teen angst, but Spidey does need a little of that, as he's a teen... with angst. Just don't overdo it.

    by Lone Fox

    Ease up on the fanboy pre-reading opinions. Wah-Wah-Wah--wahhhhhhh Still, what do I know. I don't mind the costume tweaks. They're not so far removed from the original. Hell, if you're going to whine about staying true to the original design, he should be in black and red, blue spider on his back, and web wings under his arms. 'Web Of Spider-Man' for 2 or 3. I guarantee.

  • Feb. 14, 2011, 3:14 p.m. CST


    by fat_rancor_keeper

    i felt the exact same way about this reboot months ago as you do now......but now I'm sorta indifferent. I'm just hoping for a decent flick or maybe, just maybe something entertaining. but I think Rami & co. deserved one more shot.... or the spider franchise should have sat on the shelf for a few more years. But of course due to sony having to make movies to retain the rights there's no way they were going to do that.

    So how does Spidey....

    by bames_jond

    ....stick to the wall, or any other surface if he is wearing gloves or shoes? Wouldn't that interfere with the sticky quality of his skin. He wouldn't be able to climb anything. The only thing he'd stick to would be his costume, (not to mention he'd stick to toilet paper when he was wiping his bum bum). Superheros are stupid. They take themselves too seriously. And oh yeah, Captain America does a disservice to all those who lost their lives fighting the war for the Allies. I mean really, a freak'n dude in tights with a shield is gonna save the day. I'll bite my tongue here, just in case he isn't battling the Nazis.

    web shooters

    by longloaddropper

    I was watching a dvd the Spidey Cartoon from the nineties over the weekend. They explained that somehow the spider bite imprinted into his mind the idea of how to create the web shooters. I dont know if that was ever in the comic.

    Looking forward to reboot of this...

    by Andrew Coleman

    Just kidding... Well sort of. I feel like all this movie can do is fail. The way they are approaching it is making me feel like their meetings have gone like this: "Instead of amping up the action and making it close to the comic, lets try and connect the story to teens instead. So make it like Twilight, focus on the love story and how much of a teen parker is."... "Who should be the villain?"... "Who cares through in the Protogoblin... None of the tweens will care.". I could be wrong but hiring Webb still bothers me. Reminds me too much of Tim Story. I feel like they want him because he made a indie movie that tweens thought was an "edgy romance story". Still to get this right all they need is strong action scenes. Make the Lizard the crazy monster we all think of when we picture the villain. No corn ball bull shit(Peter dancing or acting emo). Also make Spider-man talk shit and crack jokes during the fights. That is my Spider-man. Raimi only did this a little bit in Spider-man 3 but I think that was to set up that he was becoming an arrogant prick. Spider-man does that to make his opponents react. What I love about Spider-man is that he is over matched pretty much 100% of the time. Either by strength or technology. He makes funny remarks to make his enemies over heat or make a wrong choice so he can defeat them. If Webb and the writers do this they will be one step ahead. If they make Peter/Spider-man a cold/angsty/tortured sole(Really trying to make him Edward from Twilight) they will fail.

    But mechanical web shooters? Yes. Glad they got back to that. Never bought Raimi's objection to them (he's good at science, too!? who could believe that?) . . . That being said, if I don't catch it at the theater, I will definitely do the DVD.

    spider gadgets

    by matchesmalone2380

    Maybe having the webshooters will also include other spider-gadgets, such as the spider-tracers. As long as they don't include the spider-mobile, the shooters will work. As for the costume. Remember when x-men came out, and instead of the regular costumes, everyone bitched and whined about the leather suits? Yet the first 2 x-men movies turned out well (the less said about the last stand the better). The costume won't play a factor as long the movie is good. I'll reserve judgement for the trailer before complaining about this movie.

    by Snake Foreskin

    It looks more airbrushed than a Victoria's Secret model or a Tijuana whore... which, incidentally, could be one and the same. I think the Spider-Man 2099 reference is correct. I cannot help but think this costume looks like an adult (though admittedly high-dollar) Halloween costume version of the Spidey outfit. And the web shooters are okay, but I actually liked the way Raimi made it an organic facet of the radioactive spider bite. And don't forget, Peter was handicapped by his organic web shooters not firing correctly in one of the movies. So don't kvetch too much about Raimi's choice not to slavishly follow the comics. Let's face it, the comics are silly.

It's not like the comics are deeply engrossing storylines like Lord of the Rings. They're fucking comics. You can't follow a fucking comic for a movie? Pathetic.

    Some of you guys sound like the gay "fashion correspondents" they have on the E! network for the Oscars and such. I even saw a comments complaining that you COULDN'T see his crotch in this image, that they are "hiding his crotch"..... let's get our priorities straight. Gloves, crotch, and shoes. Really minor things. I think the suit looks like it's made for getting beat up and probably stabbed and shot at. It looks like armor, which makes total sense. It's not a spandex bicycle outfit. Also, I think the "silver slippers", though to DIE for, are just stunt-men gear. But even if they aren't, who cares? What is he supposed to do, wear Converse? Air Jordans? In a comic book it can look like he is wearing red socks in the grimy streets of New York but in a real world setting, especially since he's making TOUGH FALLS on the concrete at a fast speed... come on. Batman's suit looked functional and like it could be made in the real world. Same thing they are doing with Captain America, and now this Spider-Man outfit.

Hopefully you can spend more money digitally altering out the stupid parts of that costume. Or I'll forgive you if by the end of the movie, Parker discards this costume after it gets all torn up and he alters his next costume to be the nice clean and simple one we all know and love. Then everything will be fine and dandy. It's a simple solution that I offer you here free of charge. Don't blow it!

    TITLES for the New Trilogy

    by Henry Fool

    The Amazing Spiderman<br /> <br/> The Spectacular Spiderman<br /> <br /> Web of Spiderman<br /> <br /> Since Lizard is the villain in the first movie, I think the other two films should feature Kraven & Green Goblin followed by Doc Ock and Sandman.

  • And so did Spiderman in the Raimi films. But in the marvel Universe (at least, according to my 80s era Marvel Encyclopedia) there was a change in the molecular structure of Peter Parker that apparently allowed him to become "magnetic" to any other surface. Which isn't consistent with every story line, but apparently that was the explanation. From SuperHeroStuff: ""No one knows exactly how Spider-Man's wall clinging ability works. Peter Parker has often theorized that he has a form of bio-magnetic power that allows him to increase the attraction between the molecules in his body with those of the surface he climbs. All that is known for certain is that he can stick to anything. No matter how smooth or slippery a surface may be, Spidey can attach himself. He just has to keep concentrating until he can bond with it. Unlike his spider-sense, the web head's clinging power is strictly a conscious act. He can never stick to something by accident. He must deliberately press his hand to an object and chose to adhere to it."" That's sounds very similar to what I remember from my youth.

    A sad meh from this quarter...(agreed w/johnno)

    by DonQuixote

    I am looking forward to seeing this movie like every other one of the webhead's faithful fans, but I must say, this movie has had the single most disappointing series of "reveals" that are supposed to build up excitement for the final product. I have to agree with johnno's comment about the apparent strategy being one of attempting to actually conceal clear looks at the suit as much as possible (and not for good, "tease" oriented reasons). I'm sure another fan may have already offered this, but my armchair idea would have been, had they really wanted to shake up the look and still please a good many hardcore fans, to make the suit exactly resemble the look of the vintage '60s cartoons--you know, where the facemask, hands, and feet have detailed webbing, but the rest of him doesn't? I've been pretty well pleased (as a fully adult comics fan) by the Captain America & Green Lantern campaigns....this? Not so much. But then, I guess I'm not exactly the "target" audience anymore...or am I? (I see a lot of expensive comics toys owned by many people my age)

    1. (and the biggest reason) they appear to be retelling the origin story. That just feels tired to me. It will need to be a significantly different take for me to be ok with it. 2. I guess Nolan has ruined comic movies for me with his penchant for the realistic, because the mechanical webshooters defy logic for a kid to invent, and, for now, have taken me out of the movie. 3. The suit in general looks odd to me. Not sure why If the story is good and execution on screen works, objection #'s 2 & 3 go out the window real fast.

  • Despite fan grumblings, that had a monster opening night, right? It's way too early to guess how fan reaction for this one will shake out... Surely costume tweaks won't make a crushing difference. But it doesn't take that much to derail fan enthusiasm for these reboots. Sony certainly shouldn't think the $100m openings that the other Spidey films have brought are all sewn up no matter what they do.

    Now, I'm quite a positive person.

    by Super Joker

    I managed to sit through Spider-Man 3 and managed to blank out the bad parts and somehow come away feeling somewhat entertained despite the hollow emptiness nagging away deep down. But this was an opportunity to do something fresh. Instead it seems incredibly cynical. Too afraid of distancing itself from the blockbuster Raimi movies (still has a high-tech looking suit) but also trying to fix what was never broken (the actual design of the costume). The result is a 'worst of both worlds' scenario. I would have honestly preferred a shitty looking home-made suit that tried to retain the design and shapes of the comic book outfit but look distinctly home-made. Just a costume with visible seams and looked like an amateur made it would have been enough. Spideys costume is often a source of ridicule in the comics, and would often be great moments of comedy and tragedy where Peter Parker would suddenly have his heroic moments shatterred in moments of awful embarrassment and bring him crashing back down to Earth, and you would root for him even more. Films like Kick-Ass carried that forward, they absolutely nailled that idea of a kid getting kicks out of wearring a costume, being ridiculed but winning people over with his actions - it's a great underdog mechanic. I've always been annoyed that the movie Peter Parker seems to be in constant poverty yet somehow manage to get duds that would make Iron Man jealous. It's over engineered. It's so out of character. I think that's a real problem. It doesn't synch up with who he is, what he's doing or why he's doing it. So far the movies have never got the costume right. I just want to see them try something that is in keeping with the character first and foremost and forget, just for once about selling 'kewl' tie-in action figures to stupid kids.

    Is that, Parker's intelligent, competent enough to build such remarkable devices in his bedroom, yet he's perpetually broke? Never made much sense. This is why I didn't mind their going the organic web shooters route in the Raimi films. made more sense. And, yes, the new costume looks terrible compared to the one in the Raimi films.

    Okay, Many fails here. One dark, overly photoshopped photo and now "the movie looks great?" Keep the hate, folks. Certain facts: 1) I lightened the shot in CS5 and yes, the silly silver slippers are there. 2) he webs look like ass. As pointed out, the way little kids with no patience draw Spidey's webs. And most important -- a reboot was completely UNNECESSARY! They could have just made a fourth spiderman movie with this cast and suit, if they wanted. The ORIGINAL idea behind a reboot was to relaunch a good idea that had become unworkable (the last three BATMAN movies) or financially unsuccessful -- ie., Hulk and Jane Punisher, which each made bupkis (Jane - $54mill WORLDWIDE and Hulk $132 mill Domestic and 113 mill foreign) compared to studio expectations. Now let us take Raimi's Spider-men: 1 - $821,708,551 Worldwide 2 - $738,766,341 WW and even the "bad one" (some of it was) made the most of all 3 - $890,871,626 These are three of the most successful movies in our genre of all time! (ranked #2,3 and 4 in US gross for "comic book movies" ) hell-fucking-o? This reboot is about some shit other than making a new audience for Spidey -- with all the fucking stories ever told in thousands of comics, we keep getting super vs. Lex (trying a land grab) Spidey's origin, Batman's origin -- We shouldn't be complaining about a crappy suit. We should be BEGGING for better stories. Don't you get that they somehow think this is what we squids WANT? And you know those two crappy FANTASTIC FOUR movies? They're rebooting that franchise and those two movies made $700,000,000 worldwide. At least THIS time we might get to see their origin -- wow -- and hopefully DR. Doom's origin too!

    by cloneomat

    ...the stupid half-belt and the red "track suit" stripe down the leg are also hidden. I feel like they mandated the track suit stripe, then realized with the belt it looked like garters. So instead of ditching the stripes, they got rid of the front of the belt. Real cart-before-the-horse thinking there.

    by spire_walk

    They're like the Romantic Comedy of guy flicks. You know, it's the same fucking formula, and the protagonist is never in any real danger through the whole movie, and it's always PG (Unless you're Watchmen, which I loved). Safe fluff that treats us like children.

    by Jaster

    Insects don't climb walls with miniature hook-like hairs. That was completely made-up and put in the first Spider-Man film for idiots like you. Spiders actually use van der Waals forces to adhere to surfaces. This is the electrical attraction between molecules. It is generated in spiders by microscopic hair-like structures called setules which interact with the molecules of whatever they are crawling on. This bond is so powerful that it is unaffected by water or even grease.

    Origin tales is why I'm hoping Superman: The Man Of Steel

    by TheJudger

    begins with an "Adult" Superman leaving Krypton to find Zod. Zod killed his Parents, stole a ship and fled to earth. Superman pleads with the council for the right to pursue Zod. He is denied, so he takes matters into his own hands. He steals and ship and leaves for earth. Got a few more suggestions. Superman actually changes his visual appearance this time. The glasses bit always bothered me. The suit he wears was intended to explore earth. Think "The Day The Earth Stood Still" Kryptonians were planning to explore the earth to learn more about it's people since we and them originate from the same genetic seeds. They have been studying our radio waves for a while. We are primitive to them but they herald all things science- they wanted to learn about us without revealing themselves. The suit allows the wearer to look like anyone they meet at will. Imagine if someone else got the suit- Nug, Nug, wink, wink. Also Superman can look like members of the thugs he's after. Lots of options here. So what makes him decide to become some geeky guy named Clark Kent. Kal-El fails to save Clark's life. A plane crash or the arctic wild, something big. I'm more for an Arctic something, because that's were Superman crash lands his ship and makes the fortress of solitude from a site specific terraforming crystal. Kal-El decides to be Clark. When he visits the Kent homestead. Martha Kent isn't fooled for long. Kal-El explains what happened. So yeah Superman goes to earth to stop Zod, his ship crashes in the arctic. His ship cant bring him back home. The Ship that brought Zod earth still works... Kal-El uses Zods ship to go back home only to find his planet blown to bits. Who did this why did they do this. Thus begins Superman 2. An Empire Strikes Back if you will.

    by spire_walk there is this whole other side of geekdom that loves comic book movies no matter how safe and PG the movie is, where this whole fucking relaunch stinks. We're getting flooded with comic movies and all of them fall short. Think back to Empire Strikes Back, Aliens, Terminator, Predator, Matrix... Remember how those movies knocked it out of the park? Hell think back to the great stories in the comics. Now, why are all comic book movies so bland? Iron Man was witty, and Dark knight was certainly the exception.... But why are the rest consistently falling short? And why does this reboot excite anyone? Why does his costume even matter? How about the director, the writer, etc? Are they worth a fuck?

    by redkamel

    To all: 1. The costume actually looks pretty good. 2. Why does everyone think he has silver slippers? because the stunt man was wearing it in a spy shot? thats a shitty reason 3. Why all that hate for mechanical shooters? its what he originally had and its a cool story twist. Organic web shooters are a gross concept and anatomically incorrect 4. wow, someone actually said that it was "unbelievable" that a high school kid could make the webbing and shooters as a reason. As if radioactive spider blood, flying Goblin sleds and any spidey villain are more believable. I would say that mechanical web shooters are the MOST believable part besides "he built his own costume". Its a fictional story. Spire_walk: Well, those examples aren't comic book movies I would point to District 9, Avatar (even with the hate), Toy Story 3, and Inception. And movies now a says suck because those great movies, and blockbusters, have been reduced to a formula. Add to that some business types running the show, some easy hits (easy money) and you have no incentive to hire/believe in/promote people who love the material and what they do. You just get yes men and douches. You look at the BTS pics and people are getting their hands dirty, building things, having fun, improvising, walking around. Todays BTS? Michael Bay on a walkie talkie in a chair. Lucas indoors looking at computers. And so on. Basically, no one in Hollywood cares anymore, and it shows. Its all just derivative insincere crap. I was fucking off today by looking at intros to 80s cartoons. Even those people cared and tried to make it look good. Now they even phone in Saturday morning cartoons more than I thought possible.

    So what we have here is two great young actors in the leads who are ideal for their characters, a new director who, while unproven, is at least not any of the terrible action film directors on the scene today, and EXCELLENT supporting cast, and a script that we know very little about but already corrected the Gwen Stacy issue, so we'll have to wait and see on that one. And the best part of it all? No more Raimi films. He screwed the pooch on the franchise, it's settled science, get over it.

Could someone please explain to some of these people exactly what type of technology exist in the Marvel Universe (at least pre 1992 when i stopped reading them)? I remember alien technology floating around like ether. Men like Reed Richards, Tony Stark, and Victor Von Doom were building shit that Phillip K. Dick wouldn't even deem feasible. Fantastic Super-technology people...and it was every-fucking-where. Peter Parker...if for some odd reason you may have missed THAT kind of smart. Marvel genius smart. That means: Web Fluid...not a big fucking deal. It MIGHT earn Parker an 'interesting' from Reed Richards as he soon get's bored and turns back to working on his intergalactic thing-a-ma-bob, but nothing more. Is it becoming a wee bit clearer now? Movie execs...your fucking stupid. The characters were born in the marvel universe...evolved in the marvel universe...make sense in the marvel not remove them from the marvel universe because your pissant screenwriter will NOT be able to create an adequate replacement and it opens your character up to nonsense like this: **slurred speech** 'oh no, he can't make web fluid...dats just imposhible!'

    by SinisterMarmalade

    Seriously, a Spider-man reboot seems premature. Maybe after another decade passes. In any case, Sam Raimi did a good job giving us a hard luck, funny and everyman superhero. And Toby McGuire played the role well. What I don't want to see is someone reboot Spider-man thinking it should be a Leonides rip-off role. Peter Parker was awkward, it was a defining trait. Please, if the new director must remember one thing, it is simply this: Peter Parker had to struggle with his superhero persona, it didn't just make him an ass-kicker out of the box.

    Your average movie goer couldn't even tell you what a director does, much less name any...a sad fact I myself have documented for the last twenty years... And you can better believe they know and could give fuck-all about the fine details we geekoids rage about in these why not just keep it accurate? Short answer...bullshit movie politics and an overall superior attitude in regard to the source material. I've said it before, movies make more money so they are considered the 'superior medium' and screenwriters by extension the 'superior intellect'. This of course is wrong beyond all possible measure. It's not going to change unless one of two things happen: 1) They notice a substantial loss of money in projects that the geeks deem woefully unfaithful. 2) Someone with clout and a huge set of balls decides that there is a viable market for 'pure' live action comic book adventures. Which entails 5'3" yellow spandex baby! I'll be blunt, I don't think that market is the 'big screen' I think that place (at least for starters) is a subscription network that releases occasional features (much live a comic book annual or a particular story arc) I'd pay $10,$15, $20 bucks a month for these kinds of stories...I'm pretty sure others would too.

    by bcom77

    Organic web shooters or not, you have to admit that Sam Raimi's suit was arguably one of the most faithful page to screen adaptions of a super hero costume other than Chris Reeves Superman suit. I know that with a re-boot you need to distinguish yourself from what came before to seem fresh but it just seems, in my opinion anyway, this suit just doesn't feel right. Spidey's suit, more than most other superheroes, is just too iconic to mess with too much. It's clean and uncomplicated but the new suit is all... sectioned and paneled looking. Perhaps all will be put to rest once we get a proper trailer (which surely must be coming soon) but in the words of the great Garth Algar from the Waynes World movie: "It looks like Wayne's basement, only it's not Wayne's basement, isn't that weird?".

    Costume aversions ...

    by Number_Six

    Seems there's a lot of costume aversion going on at the moment - Superman should lose the trunks, where's Batman's skin tight outfit, what's going on with Spidey? I guess Superman and Batman can get away with incredible costumes as Kal El likely brought his with him from Krypton, and Bruce Wayne is a billionaire who could easily fund the construction of an incredible suit. Spider-man, as everyone says, is just a poor struggling student, no funds, no access to Edna Mode, and whilst he's potentially a genius there's nothing to suggest he's either handy with a needle and thread or has access to cutting edge materials. It's tricky though, as a home made looking suit won't fit the same, and the actor needs a stellar physique to pull it off ... I doubt some Spandex and stitching would translate well to the big screen ... but they could strike a balance, which they didn't do with Raimi's Spider-man (raised detailing, gimme a break), and they certainly haven't done so with the new movie - it's all Optimus Prime, but it's really not working. I guess if the movie's half decent then we'll be able to look past it, but I'm reckoning the movie will be shite. Mechanical web shooters ... I like 'em, I mean I think it makes more sense if they're biological as that would complete the circle of spider powers Parker inherited (climbing walls, agility & strength, 6th sense, web production - although technically he should shoot webs out of his hoop in that case - which might not be a great look), and I like the notion someone suggested where the web is biological but the mechanical part helps control it (line, net, concussion ball, etc.) ... but the shooters in the comics were mechanical, and so you have to respect them giving credence to that. I do like the idea that he could run out and have to rely on his other abilities to outsmart a foe.

    Unbelievable - we've not seen one second of footage, yet people are bitching! He looks lke Spiderman, in the comics he was an outcast, an insecure science nerd, intelligent enough to manufacture webshooters, why do you people have a problem with that? It's not realistic enough - we want a more realistic Spiderman, yeah, well then maybe he should shoot his web out of his ass you know - just like a real spider... I can't wait to see that, Andrew Garfields flabby ass shooting webs across the screen, then he sit in the corner of his bedroom, motionless, for hours and hours and hours waiting to catch a fly... Aunt May walks into his room, brushes against the web and Spiderman spurts forward as fast as his 8 arms and legs can carry him wrap her in a cocoon Great, bring on the realism

    Webb's Black Bulging Spider-Pissflap versus Schumacher's Bat Nipples

    by eveelcapitalist

    Which is worse? I swear to God this movie will be to Spider-Man what Batman Forever was to Batman. Marc Webb is the new Joel Schumacher. Rise, my fellow Talkbackers! Rise, rise like the people of Tunisia! Rise like the people of Egypt! We must gather our forces to denounce Marc Webb as we denounced Joel Schumacher for his vile treachery!

    Wow, so much hating!

    by Paul

    I never normally bother posting on these things, but Spidey is a character I've grown up with. Have to say have some reservations about the costume, but I'm more concerned about the suggested Twilight vibe of the story. HOWEVER I really don't think it's fair to judge this until it's wrapped, finished in post and in the theatre. If it sucks, so be it! Regardless, this is not the last time Sony will milk this cash cow, there'll be other spideys further on down the line...

  • Feb. 15, 2011, 5:13 a.m. CST

    Why does the costume look so dirty?

    by eveelcapitalist

    This is one thing that's bothered me about the costume but I figured it had to do with the fact that all the photos up until now have been production stills. But it's not really, is it. The costume just looks dirty, like it needs a washing. Maybe it's the lighting and the textures but ti really looks like it should be dry cleaned or something. Spider-Man really looks like he could use a bath. This is, like, Hobo Spider-Man. Spider-Man, fighting for truth, justice and a sandwhich. No. I'm sorry. I've been looking forward to seeing an official photo like this in full action mode and still I find nothing redeeming about it. It's still bad. When they issued the first Spider-Man photo for Raimi's film, it was perfect. Spider-Man perched on a rooftop ready to swing into action. It looked great. It was well look, the costume was fresh and the whole thing really got you excited. This...I don't care. It doesn't look good in stills and I doubt it will look good on screen. It's half-assed. It looks half-assed and everything that comes out related to the movie is half-assed. Half-assed costume, half-assed director, half-assed budget, and when it starts leaking I'll bet you dollars to doughnuts that the script will be half-assed as well. There's nothing amazing or spectacular or sensational about this Spider-Man, no sirree!

    by Movietool

    Point taken.

  • Yes it did. The hairs are minute, small enough to poke through the porous fabric of his costume - just like in the Raimi movies. There's even a scene in the first (?) movie, where you see the tiny little hook-like hairs on the surface of Peter's fingertips.

    by spire_walk

    Okay, find ANYWHERE on the net where I thought that mechanical shooters were good and Raimi was bad, or vice versa. What I hate is that 5 minutes after Spiderman 3 left theaters, they're rebooting the whole franchise and gearing it for a younger audience with a younger, hipper cast. I just really find it odd that AICN Talkbackers, some of the most jaded, cynical film buffs in the world, are excited about this, and all anyone cares about are fucking nuances on his suit. You're rearranging deck chairs on the fucking Titanic. BTW, Predator grossed $98 Million out of an $18 Million dollar budget. What Marvel universe are you from where that's considered a flop? But you're right, I haven't seen Amazing Spiderman yet, but I know exactly what it'll be: a mediocre PG-rated toy commercial. Sorry, I just don't see what that has to offer adult movie goers.

    by v3d

    Seriously. How much fluid could they possibly hold? 10 cc's? Anyone who's ever fired a Super Soaker knows how fast they run out of water and they generally shoot only 30-40 feet. Spider-Man shoots web streams up to HUNDREDS of feet. Are they magic web shooters? Is he wearing a huge Scuba sized tank on his back that holds the fluid? Is that tank invisible? This only proves Raimi had it right.

  • Feb. 15, 2011, 8:27 a.m. CST


    by rogueleader66

    I agree, I never had a problem with Raimi's take on that, it's what a spider does for fuck's sake, so why were people crying about it? Because Peter is a genius and they wanted to see the web shooters? Who fucking cares. Fanboys will bitch about anything....take your tampons out and STFU.

  • Feb. 15, 2011, 8:34 a.m. CST

    ok somebody mentioned topher grace as pete

    by thesmilingpsycho

    while i don't think that's a BAD choice, i don't think he would be perfect casting either. no tobey wasn't perfect casting, but i think garfield actually is. (tobey was good for pete, but not a good spidey, altho i think i'd chalked that up to issues with the script) after seeing garfield in the social network, he's nuanced enough to be peter and he has the comedic timing also to play spider-man. plus he's just a good actor. and he was also able to pull off the tough guy thing at one point in the movie despite playing a nerd through most of the film. but topher just doesn't seem to have the heart to play pete. he's a better eddie brock. he's too dry. i just don't think i'd believe him if he were to get all emotional on screen. i think as a whole this movie has better casting and people will be surprised by how good it is. i know people want to complain about the suit but it definitely looks at least more practical than the last one. like maybe a bike suit or somethin? anyway i'm not necessarily a fan of the look, it will be a small issue tho if the movie is good especially since the costume might gradually change to look more like the classic version, however the change in costume is a bold choice and shows some confidence in the filmmaker.

  • Feb. 15, 2011, 8:45 a.m. CST


    by thesmilingpsycho

    the web shooter cartridges could be around his wrist underneath the costume. in fact i'm willing to bet they are. he probly has spare ones somewhere too.

  • Feb. 15, 2011, 9:39 a.m. CST

    also somebody said somethin about the web shooters

    by thesmilingpsycho

    i understand why raimi took them out to make pete more identifiable right? psh that didn't really work considering they still made him a super genius regardless of that fact. plus these web shooters could be something curt connors helps him with which would further develop their relationship.

To tell the truth, I'm just glad these projects are being attempted. im old enough to remember when all we had was basically Donner's Superman. What if all these movies tank and hollywood is too scared to try anymore. Comic book projects could go the way of the western. I like Spider-Man enough to give any decent attempt a look. I'll be there opening night, and if i'm disappointed, so be it. I grew up reading Marvel and D.C. and i'm loving every minute of this.

    by Dr.DeadPaul

    for some reason i am not. Granted the costume is crazy elaborate but with proper scripting it could be explained. For example he could be a cosplay enthusiast. As a person who has gone to conventions I can attest that fanboys can make some crazy awesome costumes. I am really curious about how Andrew Garfield will portray him. I was kind of disappointed with Tobey's version. This is not because Tobey is a bad actor but rather i grew up with Dematteis and Michelinie doing Spider-man. He was a little wittier then and seemed a little more mature.

    Who are you freaks pissing on the mechanical webshooters?

    by GimpInMyPants

    Have you guys ever read a Spider-Man comic book? Webshooters have been a part of Spidey's history from the beginning. Who's actually shitting on them? We should admire Sony for actually staying true to the character. Raimi's Spidey trilogy was......okay at best. Spidey 2 had some kickass fight scenes but the writing sucked and because of that the acting sucked. Spider-Man is supposed to be a wisecracking smartass. Also, the black suit on Spidey 3 sucked. It wasn't solid black, it was essentially the Spidey costume painted black. The mechanical webshooters are essential to get the character right. Sony does a lot of shit but this decision was the right one.

    by Warcraft

    are you fucking kidding me? spiderman isn't invincible. he already has weaknesses. He can still fucking be shot, stabbed, beat to death, blown up, acid in the face, run over by a tank, run through with a sword, eat some fucking poison, catch aids, die of cancer, etc etc. Having mechanical webshooters isn't going to add a shred of tension. Ok so falling to his doom is now a viable way for him to die incase his webshooters run out. Ok but that's like saying, well if you take away superman's flight, he can now fall to his doom which will add tension. Oh fuck wait no it won't because he's fucking invincible. People complaining about the organic webshooters need to stop acting like he was unstoppable with them. There's plenty of ways he can die where his organic web shooters wouldn't count for shit.

    by ColloquiallyBorn

    I'm gonna wait until the damn trailer comes out, and even then... The costume looks ok, but them Nike looking shoes and the extreme mods on the original suit just pushes it to where it shouldn't go. Haven't they learned from the Superman return crap weird color costume with the new little dark "S" and the dark purple cape without the yellow symbol on it that you can modify some feature, like the texture of it as we saw in previous Spidey flicks, but to go in and change it so that the original look and feel or design changes it just makes it look bad. I'm pretty sure by looking at this one someone on the design team said "Let's make it more tecky savy by adjusting the web covering to make it look like computer parts, you know more squares than webs!! And have that Matrix cool effect appeal to where the webbing look in front drops to the crotch!" .. A. Garfield, I think can do the job, just as many (I included) thought that Maguire would not make it work, I think that Garfield needs to have his shot. I just hope they don't mess to much with the storyline like they did with the costume, little tweeks sometimes birng on full scale implosions. We were all happy when Singer signed on for Superman, we saw his desire to make it like it should be with the actual build of a farm ect.. We were all a little freaked out by the costume change, but said "Hey! What can go wrong!" But when the movie came out.. We saw that those little tweeks in the costume actually was reflected in the whole movie by changin the essence of the Hero and making him a Voyeur, a Father (WTF with that!?!?); a Superman affected by a single chunk of Kryptonite stuck in his ribs, but unaffected by a whole damn continent of the damn stuff resting on his shoulders because he "energized"!?!?!?! Too many things can go wrong when they proceed to change the essence of the characters and sometime their costume, like Spidey, says a lot about the whole storyline. I hope they don't mess.. sorry.. they don't "Singer" it...

  • Fuck all of you pathetic losers. I've seen some of you in 2012. You'll know who I am (in 2012). I'm the guy dropping dollar bills in your crusty ass coffee cups, while freezing your filthy nuts off the side of the road.And if you still don't get that, then let me beat you over the head with the obvious hammer... You are fucking bums in the future. So be nice when I drop that uneeded $1 bills. Or I might just kick your fucking head in.
