    Looks a bit like the Ben Reiley and Spider-Girl Spidey suit.

    It’s not half bad.

      gloves are definitely reminiscent Ben/May’s, but don’t they have an extra (wave/swirl/???) bit on the forearm?

        I think I know what you’re talking about, yeah. But that is why I said “a bit”, though…

        Normally I don’t like costume changes for movies except when it makes sense (like not using yellow spandex for Wolverine) but I think this looks decent.

    I think that they will be going for a darker grim backdrop, Think spiderman stopping crime by night and lurking in alleyways. I am glad they got rid of the thick silver rubber webbing on the custume.

    This is the first thing I’ve seen that’s managed to nudge the needle on my enthusiasm guage past “meh.” I still think the whole project seems rushed, after canning “Spider-Man 4” and announcing this one the same day, before they even had a script, and I think that breakneck production pace is going to show through in the film. I still expect we’ll see “The Shoddy, Hackneyed, and Haphazard Spider-Man”, but if it comes anywhere close to “Amazing” I’ll be happy to eat my words.

    Looks great, but like the Transformers franchise the special effects/costumes were never the problem…

    Basketball head Spider-man.
    The texturing gets me. It really does. All in all looks interesting though, in a good way.

    Whatever material they chose to make that with, it looks great. It doesn’t come off as unnatural or wonky.

      Good call, they did use the Rob Liefeld approach when it comes to showing the feet.
