SPOILERS: Spider-Man: Homecoming's new costume to harken back to first issue

12.02.2016

Again, MINOR SPOILERS from here on out. So if you want to go into the movie completely cold and not read ahead, that's fine. The fact that you got this far means we got your click. Either way, you've been warned!

Now, for any real Spider-Man fans, the fact that the new costume will supposedly "harken back to first issue" should already be ringing some bells. I mean, wasn't Sam Raimi's version already pretty faithful? And even Andrew Garfield's AMAZING SPIDER-MAN films didn't stray too far with formula. Until you remember...

BAM! Web wings.

Apparently Sony Pictures had a panel at Comic Con Experience in São Paulo, Brazil, where they showed a clip from Marvel’s upcoming SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING. While the clip obviously isn't available at the moment, Marvel’s own Ryan Penagos recapped the clip on Twitter:

This confirms an exclusive scoop that our own Paul Shirey broke way back in May (which also predicted Vulture would be the main villain played by Michael Keaton, as well as the inclusion of The Tinkerer).  

Not going to lie though, while I love me some Spider-Man, I'm not a big fan of the web wings. But I also hate web-shooters with a passion (I feel, as Sam Raimi and James Cameron did, that the big appeal of Peter Parker is that he's - while nerdy and smart - just a normal teen who's only real x-factor is the radioactive spider bite, not also making military grade weaponry with no money, materials, or know-how). So what the f*ck do I know?

Anyway, what do you Schmoes think? Yay or nay on the new costume?

Either way, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING will web-wing into theaters July 7th, 2017

Extra Tidbit: Spider-Man's first issue as a stand alone title (not connected to AMAZING FANTASY) was in 1963 when he met and tussled with the Fantastic Four.

Web wings, eh?

If done right this could pave the way for a Spiderwoman movie. But then again ever since Catwoman & Electra ruined it for female superheroes we may have to wait a bit longer or just until Wonder Woman & Captain Marvel are released

I hope they at least make the spider logo bigger, I don't like the tiny one. I'm not a huge fan of the underarm webbing either. The costume from the new PS4 game looks pretty sweet, updated but still clearly Spider-Man.

The strange thing is that it WAS actually actually bigger on the costume used for the shooting of CIVIL WAR (you can see it on the bonus material from CV's Blu-Ray), but, for reasons unknown they scaled it down on the final CG suit !
And I agree with you, it needs to be bigger !

I'm a bigger fan of the organic webshooters that were displayed in the original trilogy than the homemade ones in the rebooted films.

But it'll be cool to finally see the web wings after two interpretations. It just seems that they're making Tony the problem solver in terms of his suit, and taking that aspect away from Peter.

Also the thing about Reed Richards and Tony Stark is that their genius isolates them. No one can *really* relate to them. Peter Parker's appeal has ALWAYS BEEN that he's the superhero (especially at the time) that isn't rich, a titan of industry, or stable. He had girl problems, rent problems, a shitty job, etc. THAT'S what makes Spider-Man stand out. Making him a genius on par with fucking Reed Richards undermines that, I'm sorry. It does. If the character has to have that to be Spider-Man,

If the character has to have that to be Spider-Man, then Spider-Man is uninteresting. Why is he having shitty rent and a shitty job if he can invent stuff like that? And it creates unnecessary logistical issues. I mean, sure, radioactivity doesn't create superpowers, but that's the buy in for the premise. It's the "X-Factor" that we either suspend our disbelief for or don't. HOWEVER to compound that (as well as take away his appeal - again the superhero that deals with real personal life stuff other heroes are usually insulated from due to status, money, or what-have-you) seems arbitrary and weird. Where did he get the materials? How could he afford it if he's poor? Did he steal it? If so, is he being heroic to do that? Sure, the spider bite gave him instructions on the web fluid, but can he find materials that make webs that can hold up fucking CARS at Wal-Mart or discount stores? And, again, isn't his who thing having insect powers? Why is he a super-genius on top of that? (In FANTASTIC FOUR his powers are a part of his personality and part of the buy in - the idea of a superpowered family was novel at the time, at least one as dysfunctional as they were). Not so with Spider-Man.

Ergo, web shooters suck and they ALWAYS have from day 1.

WHILE NERDY AND SMART?

Love bringing back the webwings, but the character you, rami and camron like isn't Spider-Man, Peter did build his own web shooters and developed the webs, Peter has never been an ordinary high school student, Peter is a genius who is on par with Reed Richards when Reed was his age, not showing that is what Rami got wrong about the character

Honestly, his intellect is something that fluctuated a whole lot depending on who was writing the character. While Reed and Stark are portrayed as geniuses all the time, Parker, for a long time, was written smart enough to defeat his villains but not smart enough to improve his condition.

Admittedly, that did change the last few years when he opened his own company but even then, unless I'm mistaken, that company was started by Otto Octavius.

I'm cool with the wings, though it seems like they are trying too hard by adding them.

Also I agree about the webshooters. As much as I loved the comics I hated that Spider-Man built his own webshooters. It made the character's abilities too convoluted and coincidental. The organic webshooters are a concept from Spider-Man 2099, and I much preferred it that way. I was happy as hell when Raimi took that element from Spider-Man 2099.
