Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

The exclusion of the "belt" will take some getting used to, but everything else I really like. The pattern and texture they came up with is cool, and Garfields thin and lanky frame looks absolutely PERFECT for the character.

I like it. No more raised webbing pattern






Have to say Garfield fits the suit much better.

Is it too early to hate this movie with a flaming passion that burns with heat of thousand suns??!?





Suit does look kinda nice though

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Does he fit the suit, or does the suit fit him?

Hey, I've been a fan of his since Parnassus.

I really like the suit, even with the removal of the "belt." Honestly, just about everything I've heard about this movie has me looking forward to it.

I just don't get the wisdom of casting a guy who will be almost 29 when the movie comes out, especially since it's set in high school.

Well he certainly looks young enough, judging from the pic.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Well, it looks a little bit more homemade, and not as "perfect" as Maguire's costume. It always bothered me that Maguire's costume was suppose to be hand sewn, but looked like a professional made it.

That said, it's going to take me some time to get used to the new design, since I thought Maguire's costume, for what it was, looked kind of perfect (is that contradictory?). However, I think Garfield's lanky frame suits the costume better. Spider-Man was always kind of skinny and lanky, and in that sense I think this works.

I'm not blown away, but then again after Maguire's costume got so much right, they had to go in a different direction in order to separate themselves from Maguire's costume, and for all the changes they've made, it doesn't look that bad.

It looks a bit weird without the red around the waist, but it's okay I guess.

As long as there are no nipples on the suit I'm happy.

My blood always starts to boil whenever I think about how Schumacher fucked up Batman.

Yeah I'm really surprised they changed as much as they did. I figured Sony would want to make as few changes as possible, and not risk hurting a good thing they had going with the Spidey movies.

If nothing else, this gives me a bit more confidence in the movie-- that they're actually trying to make something good here, and aren't simply trying to squeeze more money out of the franchise.

I don't see mechanical web-shooters in that pic but whatever, I prefer organic ones. (Or at least the compound/"webbing" being natural and the shooters placed to a less disgusting spot for use.)

I wasn't looking forward to this movie at all until seeing the new suit today. I think it looks sweet.

I like that this this looks like Garfield in an actual suit, as opposed to Tobey's "floating head on top of CGI mesh" look. I realize both are in actual suits, but still.

I miss the red around the waist but other than that it looks real good. I like the spider logo on the chest better than Maquire's version.
