Holy sh*t, it’s Spiderman… the new Spiderman

January 14, 2011

Well look what totally slipped by me on the interwebs today… our first look at Andrew Garfield in costume.  If you didn’t know already, it’s time you did:  they’re rebooting Spiderman.  Exit Tobey Macguire.  Enter Andre Garfield.

My thoughts on the costume:  I’m not crazy about it.  It’s a little too “updated” for my tastes.  Yes, it’s 2011, I get it.  But does Spiderman have to be this… modern?  It’s like a new Pepsi can or something.  And I really don’t like how the logo bleeds down the length of his abs.  Nor does the webbing design please me.  And what’s with the texture?!  Since Superman Returns, the texture of superhero costumes  has been way over the top.  If you’re new to the character of Spiderman (as the filmmakers obviously are), it should be pointed out that Peter Parker MAKES HIS OWN COSTUME.  That’s right, he’s a teenager, in high school, and he makes his own costume.  I don’t know about you, but when I was in high school I sure as hell wasn’t sewing this together:

Homemade my ass.

    Yeah… it IS pretty odd and still looks like it’s from the ultra-hip-cool early 2000’s of the Tobey Maguire era. It’s not awful, but man is that a stylized version of the design! I think they need to come up with a better explanation than ‘he sewed it himself’ this time.

    On the subject of Andrew Garfield I recommend that you watch Red Riding and that will set your mind at ease on his acting chops. It’s also an astounding film series that I think is up your alley.

    note: that’s a very smart and pertinent comment.
    and if you don’t think so, again, that’s just your imagination. : ))

      blast from the past #2. I wish wordpress had a “like” button for comments. I’d probably use it too often though and it’d lose it’s significance. I also wish there was a “like” button for you fixing your home PC. Well done.

    Hi Chris,

    I have to say that I agree with your comments though I willing to see how it plays out in the cinema.
