First Look at Spidey's Costume in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Come check out the changes Peter has made to his attire!

We've been getting plenty of news about Spider-Man's next film. We now know it'll include Rhino, Electro, Mary Jane Watson and Harry Osborn. Additionally, director Marc Webb has been tweeting from the set everyday with little hints to keep us guessing, too. But now over at, we have an official look at Peter Parker's new costume.

Wow, I really like these changes. The modifications to webhead's costume definitely feel closer to the source material and less... well, alien-ish. In case the old costume is a bit blurry in your memory, below I have a side-by-side comparison of the new costume and the one used in The Amazing Spider-Man.

Viners, are you a fan of this new costume or did you prefer the unique feel of the first outfit? Speak your mind below. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled to hit theaters May 2, 2014.

So they caved in to pressure and changed it back to the Tobey suit. Oh well, at least Sipder-man fans will be happy.

Well they kinda HAD to make the first costume different. The first Amazing Spider-Man was the first in a new universe, which means they had to make the costume look different so that they wouldn't be compared even more to the Raimi trilogy.

That being said, I like it!

Really hope Garfield bulks up a bit in the next one. He was a bit too scrawny for my liking in the first one

The first movie was ass, and the second has an even worse cast than the first. This suit looks JUST LIKE THE OLD SPIDER MAN MOVIES WITH TOBEY! WTF ARE THESE GUYS GETTING PAID FOR???

I'm likening the new design for ASM2 much better than the last one and ten times better than the Sam rami movies costume.

So far the only difference I can see from the Raimi suit is slightly bigger eyes so I don't know how exactly that makes it ten times better.

To get that big of a change there must be transistory costumes in the middle...I like it.

How underwhelming.. -______-

I figured they would have made it more unique, now it appears like the one from the comics..

Mr. Webb should have went with the superior spiderman suit or at least tried to upgrade the one from the 1st movie..


Say whaaaa?! XD

My first thought when I read the title was 'stupid', then I saw the beutiful fan service in the eye pieces, and I'm really excited. I think the rest of the costume would have been better left unchanged, as he now looks too much like the Maguire Spidey, but the new mask just looks awesome.

So, what happens to his old costume? Does he just keep it in the closet?

It would be cool if they showed that. Just a shot of him trying to decide which costume to wear.

@Ninjablade09: Agreed. Too often we just see the new one and the old one just vanishes. Show us some continuity Marvel movies.

@regrivett: Was just thinking it would be cool if they do what they did in Dark Knight. But his costume gets damaged so much early in the film that it would take awhile to repair and would be easier to make a new costume so he decides to change up the look.

Yup, so far love the new costume. A change in the eyes makes so much difference.

I wonder if the new film is gonna go in a slightly "brighter" direction. The re-vamped costume seems to add some "fun" to Spidey's look, and I see a bit of sunshine poking out from behind him. Also, Electro and Rhino never came across as "dark" villains to me.

A couple of questions: How is this one different from the Raimi trilogy? Looks to be about the same. What do the gloves and boots look like? Will the boots have suction cups like the first film?

I keep staring at them eyes.

Although, I did like the costume from the first film. But this one is just better in every way possible.

@theoneA7: I'm hoping they keep the design of the gloves and boots (which had soles not suction cups) as I thought those were nice tweaks to the standard design.

As for the difference with the Raimi trilogy

1. Slimmer webbing lines. The Raimi trilogy suits all had thick webbing lines and thus there were far less of them throughout the suit. This suit has thinner lines and looks closer to the comic book version.

2. Eyes are more oval and bigger. Though the Raimi trilogy suit had larger eyes than the ASM suit, compared to this new one the Raimi suits eyes were more angled and came to a sharper point.

3. The spider emblem is elongated compared to the Raimi suits with angled joints whereas the Raimi suits had curved legs. The emblem though looks to be the same as in ASM, we just don't see how far down the bottom four legs go in the pic.

Hope that helps.

I liked and I think I preferred the original costume they had.Far better than the crappy tobey-look in my opinion...then again I haven't seen the rest of it.But I liked the idea of how the original looked like "it was made by a teen".I would hate if it looks like the goofy,big eyed bug.And again,I haven't seen the entire costume.I just hope that they add their own unique touches that blend well with the costume and make it look as awesome as the first.Maybe even better.But if it just looks crappy and like from the original comics,or like the ult. spiderman costume,then I'm gonna be pissed.I hate that costume,I still hope this new costume looks as vibrant and new and original like the first one,rather than the tobey one.Then again,as said,I haven't seen the rest of the costume.

Well it's good to know the costume looks more like the one we know and love. Now show me some photos of Electro and Rhino if you please Mr. Webb.

This was my thoughts. I'd have liked to see a different Spider-emblem tbh but its still better than the first one.

If Webb really wants to make me happy THIS is what I want to see! No modifications of modernizing just THIS:

one thing i love about spider-man movies we always get new villains. say what you will about the movies themselves but at least its not repetitive crap like some movies (magneto, lex luthor, etc). i look at it this way. peter makes his own costumes. instead of being mad at the changes think of it in a realistic way. how many times have you made a costume by hand might i add? the costume in the first movie was his trail run. now with more experience and maybe some new material can improve upon the original model

Best Spidey costume ever! Looks like it popped right out of the comic book itself.

I like it a lot better, because if you really think about it, it shows evolution. In the first movie, he was a high school student with not much experience in crafts, and had to make the costume from things he could find from around his house. The new one shows the evolution of his skill as a hero now, because I imagine this is taking place at least 1-2 years after the events of "Amazing Spider-Man 1" so the new costume shows that he has more experience and can actually make a more competent, flashy costume. I hope that the change of his costume is somehow integrated into the movie, and they don't just change it and ignore the fact it was changed.
