If he wasn't emo it wouldn't be Spider-Man.

If I ever rub a lamp and a genie pops out, I'm going to wish for everyone who's used that ridiculous word to burst into flame.

I prefer the Raimi suit in just about every way, but I think the colors look better in this one, provided that's how they'll look in the movie.

The belt missing and the big spider icon kind of reminds me of the "Spider-Pheonix" costume Spider-man wore in one issue...

One thing I like about the new suit is that it looks a little worn and torn. Maguire's suit, for the most part, always looked clean and perfect. Garfield's suit seems a bit more realistic.

The first suit looked cooler, but this suit looks more homemade. I guess it depends on which you prefer.

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

I like the more homemade look. It makes more sense if Peter is making his costume from scratch with materials and equipment he has at his disposal. Plus, the black webbing makes the red and blue stand out better in my opinion.

The only real complaints I have is that, at least from that photo, the emblem doesn't really come out at you like I feel it should, and removal of the red "belt" seems a bit jarring. Other than that, I like Garfield's lankier frame, which seems to suit Spider-Man more (no pun intended) than Maguire's more shapely frame did.

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

It looks like Peter just got his ass handed to him in that pic...he looks frustrated as well. The emblem might be the only thing that bothers me, but maybe this is just a work in progress costume? Peter hasn't refined the design?

Oh...wait...anyone who says they've never seen a moody/downcast Peter Parker/Spider-man depiction simply hasn't read the book. They haven't even looked at the covers.

Which, of course, makes it more emo.

Maybe it's the mesh material over the spandex that seems more homemade to me.

Well, it got shredded in his fights with the Goblin and Doc Ock.

Hmm. Not a big fan, liked the prior version better. But, like the Green Lantern suit, we'll have to see it in motion to better judge.

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

It definitely got cut up and torn in Raimi's films, but for the most part it always looked very pristine. Of course, this one still could be after a fight he had with The Lizard or some other villain, which is why it looks so worn and torn, but I guess as the first official picture from the film, it gives me a more ragged vibe than I ever got from Raimi's films.

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

I think this is my favorite costume from the films:



Definitely has that homemade feel.
