Fifty years on, and Spider-Man’s original threads are still the best. They’re iconic, American as f*** and timeless. Even with minor mods and additions, the core costume is still there and it currently looks better than ever thanks to a redesign from Tony Stark in Captain America: Twats Fighting On The Runway And Your Flight Is Probably Delayed Civil War.

That’s the costume that Tom Holland will be wearing next year in Spider-Man: Homecoming. But it might not be the only suit that Holland zips himself into. Spoilers after the image, oh true believers.

A proper trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming will debut with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, although some people have managed to see it early already, because black magic I guess. According to these sources, Spidey’s new suit won’t just have a fancy flashlight upgrade attached to it as was seen at the end of Civil War, but it’ll also have a few extra webs. Specifically, the iconic armpit webs that were a part of the costume when Steve Ditko first designed it:

It’s an element of the Spider-Man costume that has never ever been seen on the big screen before, purely cosmetic stuff and nothing like Spider-Woman’s similarly designed outfit that allowed her to glide through the air. But for a film that features Michael Keaton bird-manning it up as the Vulture? Now that sounds like an exciting upgrade and yes holy crap I am such a nerd and small details like this make me giggle with delight.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is out next year July and stars Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Robert Downey Jr., Kenneth Choi, Donald Glover and the best Batman/Birdman known as Michael Keaton. I’m already mouth-webbing myself with excitement.

    It should be Spider Boy. Wasn’t he still a teeny bopper in Civil War, a movie that could never give me the 2 hours back I wasted watching that kak?

    • Captain JJ

      Still better than Suicide Squad imo

      • Andre Fourie

        Don’t even get me started on THAT one.

        Weird thing is that Suicide Squad was the movie my wife loved. You just can’t teach them anything. All the Batmans she hated. Superman she hated. All the Spider-Mans she hated. Iron Man she hated. Suicide Squad she loved. Sometimes you just have to smile and wave and not try to understand.

        • Captain JJ

          I think it’s because Suicide Squad is way more focused on being a typical action-comedy in terms of characters and plot than an actual comicbook-based movie.

      Whoops. Off his meds again. Or that rabid bat that bit him in the neck’s poison is only hitting his brain now. Or alternatively, he does not have a brain.
      And the bat died from grape juice overdose.

  • Captain JJ

    Amazing Spider-Man 2 had the best costume imo. Classic.

    • Robbie Flynn

      Agree

  • Original Heretic

    So he’s gonna have that “I forgot to shave my armpit webs” look?

    • Andre Fourie

      That just brings up a whole lot of other questions.

  • Captain JJ

    I really like the classic under-arm webs. Will be very interesting to see.

    Poor Spidey… his wardrobe change has happened so many times. You would thing he is a teenage girl going on a date!

  • Elvy Donathon

    Looks very .. em vintage? Was New Logo of New Spiderman made by using Logaster?
