Coming Soon has unveiled an exclusive first look at the new Spiderman costume for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The new image promises a more streamline costume that is arguably the most accurate interpretation to date. It marks a vast improvement on the previous instalment, which was passable albeit a far less accurate representation.
The change is most notable in the eyes, which are much bigger this time around, and though this is a relatively basic alteration, it transforms the look of the character and suggests that this sequel may be a very true adaptation.
Here’s the scoop:
Following a tease by director Marc Webb himself last week, we now have your exclusive first look at the costume that will be featured in next summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Check it out below!
As Webb promised last November, the costume features much bigger eyes and a number of alterations to color and texture throughout. This is quite arguably the closest any of the films have come to matching the design from the comics, especially Mark Bagley’s take in Ultimate Spider-Man. A good visual comparison is this photo from last year’s The Amazing Spider-Man, featuring Spidey in a similar pose.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sees Andrew Garfield reprise his role as Peter Parker/Spiderman and Emma Stone as his love interest, Gwen Stacy. New additions include Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) as the villainous Electro, and Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) as Harry Osborn, Peter’s best friend.
New on-set images have also emerged online, one of which shows Spiderman hanging upside down, though none reveal much else.
Here’s a brief synopsis:
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 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 about 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.
The film is scheduled for an April/May 2014 release and also stars Martin Sheen, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giammatti, Felicity Jones and Colm Feore.
