Im really not sure about this suit yet.
Im really not sure about this suit yet.
It actually looks like it's based on a wetsuit. (With all of those lines under the honeycomb texture) It's probably not based on any real world wetsuit, but likely inspired by their design elements.
And if, in the story, he makes it from a wetsuit it should finally shut up the "a teenager can't make that costume" crowd.
Not really liking that design. The mask seems like an afterthought like "hey! We have a couple left over from Spider-man 3! Great! Let's use them!"
This photo is such a tease! You can see he's holding his mask in his right hand!
I have a guess: The red bits we see extending from his back onto his hips that look like the vestiges of his belt are ACTUALLY the bottom legs of the red spider on his back!
Also, I really like this suit. It just seems very functional, yet modern and cool.
skinny spidey in a high school drama...sounds nice lol
but the suit really nice to me...with the bag ofcourse
I just notice that the strip from his 'half belt' also runs down the side of his leg!
... As much as I want to cry "foul" because it's not canon.... I'm actually VERY intrigued by this suit!
I made a 10 second manip of what would have made this costume better for me right off the bat.
Also, anyone think it somewhat resembles some of the concept art for the Sam Raimi Spidey series?
Like I said, I think the suit is growing on me already. Yes I do wish they would have just stuck to the traditional look a little more, but I just can't give up on this movie because of the costume. Especially when the cast is so awesome. This is the first time I've actually felt a little disappointed with the stuff we've seen, so I will let it slide for now as it doesn't outway the positive aspects quite yet.

Everyone bemoaning the new suit, let's all remember the case of the BatPod from The Dark Knight. We all saw footage of it, and a bunch of people cried and screamed about how Nolan was going all Schumacher on us and just adding vehicle after vehicle, despite the fact that to put new R&D in on something like that would be the easiest way for Batman's identity to be known. The the movie comes out, and lo and behold, the BatPod was an Escape POD for the Tumbler...making perfect sense in context.
...this suit may yet make more sense when seen in context. Like I said earlier, they may ever try to make it appear that this is a wetsuit that he has modified, or something else.
But even if they don't, I actually prefer it without the belt. I think it make him look sleeker and emphasizes he already diminutive stature.
Your mileage may vary.
I agree, it's just tough to accept when all other incarnations have been so similar up until now. Like I said, this won't affect my feelings on the movie itself one bit. I just want to see more/better pics and to see it in action.
looks like a suit made out of recycle handballs
What if the lack of a "belt" is for one reason, i.e., he actually has a functional belt that carries web fluid and such that was either ripped off in battle or he just took it off? You can sort of see that the area where the belt would be seems to be a different color. Who knows. Just a thought, my mind is insane with ideas right now
While I don't dislike this new suit, I think the Tobey suit is a tough one to beat. This one feels a little busy in comparison.
I know this comparison is a fan made suit compared to an original, but at least it gives you an idea of what the old looks like compared to the new.
Or... you can always go old old old school...
i like the way the red and blue intersects on the suit but the texture just makes it look cheap, i really think the guys here on the rpf could have done a lot better than this film version.... but then it might look better on screen than in a still i will wait and see, but for now i dont really like it.
Hey it could be worse....Chris Evans could be in it....
Where's his "belt" ???
Looks like he's wearing the Spidey version of Borat's "unitard". Looks even more difficult to "make at home" than the Raimi version too!
Looks like there is something is protruding from his wrists. Has it been confirmed they're going with non-organic webshooter's this time?
