First Look: Spidey's Bug-Eyed New Suit in 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'
If you haven't been following director Marc Webb on Twitter, you're missing out on some fun teases for the 2014 comic book sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He's posted some pictures of FBI agents, Oscorp laboratories and most recently, teased a new suit that Andrew Garfield will don for the sequel. Now the first official image of that suit is here, and there's some considerable differences from the suit in the first film, the biggest change being in the eyes which are now white and much larger. Otherwise, the rest of the suit looks much more like the one that Tobey Maguire wore for Sam Raimi's film trilogy. See below!
Here's the new suit from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, originally from ComingSoon (click for larger):
And for comparison/discussion, here's the "original" suit as seen in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man:
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is directed by Marc Webb and written by Jeff Pinker, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds, life is busy between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can't come quickly enough. Peter hasn't forgotten the promise he made to Gwen's father to protect her by staying away, but that's a promise he just can't keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past. Columbia Pictures will send the sequel to theaters early next summer on May 2nd, 2014. Cool?

Diggin' it. Prefer the bigger eyes. They seem more like the comics.

Still don't have a lot of faith in this

Wow! That looks so much better than the suit from the first one! Funny though, as you mentioned, that it actually looks pretty much like the one from Sam Raimi's movies.

Looks muuuuuuuch better. Never liked the one in the first 'Amazing' film. Too plasticky looking.
Cian O'Mahony on Feb 25, 2013

They should give the old one to me!

I'm already bored as hell. Mark Webb's Amazing Spiderman was one big dissapointment of 2012.

"Man, you come right out of a comic book." - Jim Kelly Liking it a lot better than the last one. This is probably the best looking spidey yet! As you mentioned, the design looks a lot like Raimi's but I didn't like how Raimi's spidey was a bit too muscular. This one has the right web designs, big eyes, and a slimmer Spidey.

Less like a basketball, more like a basketball net. Good improvement.

So, from basketball to carbon fiber? Just make this a TV-series on CW all ready, I don't see they have any love for the characters.

You wont see Spiderman on the CW, thats DC owned... you will see it on ABC before anything

This isn't just similar to Raimi's costume. It's identical to concept art and costume designs from 2002's Spider-Man's pre-production.

Just as long as they remember to re-do the feet/hands. They looked daft in TASM.

First movie was awful, no doubt the second will be a hipster teenager movie cash in. Implying Jews don't run Hollywood

You so classy. Oh wait, no you're the other thing.
blargh on Feb 26, 2013
So the reboot will have the look of the original.....not long till the dancing then.

Looks super fake- the eyes are photoshopped on. It's Ramis suit with new eyes.
One on Feb 25, 2013
I have to say that looks awesome. So much better than the previous suit.
Reznik on Feb 25, 2013
Im sorry but that 'amazing' movie was a POS. Terrible story, terrible acting, terrible cg effects. Really, WHY is there a sequel green lit? It was just shit on top of shit. I feel sorry for people who actually believe that this was/is a good movie.
buzzfunk on Feb 25, 2013
As much as I love Spider-Man, I have to agree with you.
castingcouch on Feb 26, 2013
Looks more like an improvement to the Raimi version
Tyrell Antonio on Feb 25, 2013
Nothing beats the original design! Now it's time to work on peter parker
TOONFED on Feb 25, 2013
looks more Spider-Man, looks exactly like the suit from first trilogy but with bigger eyes, but I'm gettin happy
comic393 on Feb 25, 2013
really feels like the Ultimate costume brought to life. Absolutely love it. Really looking forward to the changes. Also I have to say that I'll miss the old shoes. I liked the last costume and blend of the two would make me happy.
Kento on Feb 26, 2013
It's about damn time. McFarlane's Spidey design was the best ever.
castingcouch on Feb 26, 2013
Its fake, as someone posted already, the eyes are photoshop'd into Raimi's version of the suit, not to mention the head does not have a human form. Edit: Not fake after all, theres set photos around already.
unknew on Feb 26, 2013
To those saying that it is fake, there are now set photos of this costume. http://d1fgn7wex1bhjn.cloudfront.net/assets/tarantulaV2/embedded_images/1361888322_sp1.jpg
