    I'll kick this one off with the best two images I've been able to find so far.

    I think movie-wise, it's not full spandex. It's probably part spandex, part metal. Check out the shoulders. They look like they've got slits to allow for mobility.

    So apparently it's black, not dark blue.

    I agree, those shoulders are definitely segmented to allow for movement. I suppose it kind of makes sense that the newest suit would be more armoured for a full-on member of the Avengers.

    To me, the not-red parts look like a really dark, greyish-blue colour. It's also interesting to note that the spider emblem is the same colour as the not-red parts of the suit.

    I really like this design so far and I hope it gets some serious usage in the next Avengers film (my theory is that Peter will use the normal Stark suit for most of the movie, then switch to the Iron Spider for the big battle at the end, like Tony with his Mk.7 in Avengers Assemble and the Mk.45 in Age of Ultron)

    So can we all agree that the texture on the entire suit (red and blue/dark blue/black parts) are just a dotted pattern?

    Not as far as I know. Thereís still very little reference material for this suit, so it may be a while before anyone can put together an accurate pattern.

    So I think everyone knows that the first trailer dropped today, showing off some great views of the Iron Spider Suit.

    All I have so is the one image, but Iíll hopefully get round to screencapping the whole trailer later on.

    Fabric On Demand. I heard that zentai zentai could as well but you'd be much better off going with FOD

    I think that RPC does prints only but I'm not sure if Zentaizone or zentai-zentai does it too

    Fantastic, thanks guys!! I'm curious what you might think of my idea, although I'm not sure I'll be able to communicate it well on here.

    You buy a printed, unsewn suit (once accurate patterns are available), and red metallic spandex. You use the existing print as a guide and also a base for the red parts. You use some sort of interfacing, I'm not sure what as it would have to be the proper thickness without being too stiff, and quilt the metallic spandex onto the suit pattern, and then saw the pattern together. I'm not sure what one would do with the gold parts, but I think metallic puffy paint would work well for the blue pieces.

    I hope you guys get the gist of what I'm saying. I have only a little bit of experience sewing, and no experience either lycra/spandex

    I see what you're thinking, but it would probably be easier and cheaper to make the suit from scratch using the mettalic soandex

    Haha honestly it's so complex of a design that I don't think I'd be able to draft a pattern from scratch. Also you would use the blue part for the completed costume.

    They wouldn't put metal parts in a costume. These are fabricated many times over.. something moldable and castable. Likely a semirigid urethane for the shoulders. Softer urethane for the details, and of course a specialty ink screen printed fabric.

    I was talking about how the suit works in the movie universe where the technology can exist. In the real world, Tom wore a mo-cap suit so what we'll see in the movie is a fully CGI Spider-Man. Unless of course, they had a practical suit but I doubt it. What you mentioned is certainly possible though if a practical suit did exist.

    A practical suit was made. Whether or not it was used and what it was used for? I don't know.
    I wouldn't be surprised to see one on promotional display with the other costumes as we get closer to the films release..

    Hey guys it looks like LEGO minifigs, which are notoriously accurate, suggest that Spidey will have his 4 iron spider legs on the suit. If that's the case, man are we gonna have a challenge ahead.Click image for larger version.

    A trusted friend and co-worker mentioned work was being done on a "new" Spider-Man suit last January or so. I can only assume it was this new Iron Spider suit. That's the best answer I can give at the moment.

    Anyways, sorry to disrupt the thread. Don't really have anything else to add I'm afraid!
    I will suggest this though, if anyone decides to replicate the suit.. another good way to approach the trim instead of urethane is a 6lb flexible foam. Pressure cast it and it will be almost as dense as urethane, but it will paint like foam.. much easier to do the chrome/silver accents IMO as I know folks have some trouble painting urethane rubber. It looks to be segmented frequently enough that you could break it into small enough pieces to fit in a decent sized pressure chamber. Just something I have been playing with lately..

    Best of luck folks!
