Hmmm… not sure how I feel about this full-body image of Spider-Man from the reboot movie. It looks kind of like a CGI image to me, but it’s a real guy in a suit. Word is post-production imaging magic will be used to tweak the look of the outfit, a la the infamous Green Lantern costume.
Note the silver thing on Spidey’s left wrist: It’s a web shooter. This version of Spider-Man will employ the traditional mechanical web shooters, instead of making them “organic,” like the last movie series. There seem to be quite a few stripes and splotches of color all over the uniform, so it is clearly more different from the last movie costume than it first appeared to be. As for the bits of silver on his boots… well, who knows? They could be some kind of marker for the special-effects team, or maybe his boots just have silver bits.
As a bonus, here’s an older photo from the set, showing Andrew Garfield in his Peter Parker guise with Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy. I know one thing: His hair looks pretty ridiculous. I don’t really know much about Garfield, since I haven’t seen The Social Network yet, but I do know Stone can be funny (See Superbad) and she looks great as a platinum blonde. I also thought she was excellent in Zombieland. (See my review of Zombieland.) Stone said she’s signed up for a couple of Spider-Man movies, so maybe Gwen won’t meet the same fate as her comic book incarnation. At least, not in the first flick.
Let me know what you think about the costume, Garfield, Stone, his hair, her hair…or anything else about the movie.
