Note: Sony has released the first image of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man for the new series reboot. Thoughts below. – Dean Trippe
Looks like it’s been knocked around a bit, but otherwise seems pretty cool to me. Fairly standard Spidey design, but you can see a few subtle details changed, like the spider emblem’s legs bending into the red torso shape, the glove stripes, and the sectioned “belt” element. I kind of like how the costume looks like it’s been modifed with red and blue paint rather than custom created by a mystical superhero seamstress.
Some folks have already noted the bumps on the wrists, possibly indicating mechanical webshooters. I’m cool either way on that, I suppose, though since we haven’t seen the tech ones on the big screen yet, I’d like to see ‘em. I look forward to seeing the mask and the back-spider, as well as a less battle-damaged shot, but so far, I dig it just fine. Garfield looks very Spider-Manish to me.
