Ever since Marvel announced that Spider-Man will finally join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans have been wondering what the web crawler's new costume will look like. Over the past few months, we've seen pieces of rumored concept art and descriptions of the costume, but nothing has been confirmed by Marvel or Sony Pictures quite yet. Today, Heroic Hollywood has another report to throw on the rumor pile, which claims that the back of Spidey's new outfit will include a throwback to the very first comic books.
Spider-Man's new costume will reportedly feature the infamous red spider logo that fans will recognize from the original comics dating back to 1962. This information comes from members of an unspecified theater staff, who were treated to a special 15 minute screening of new footage that reportedly contains the first look at Spider-Man's costume. It isn't known if this is the costume he'll be wearing in Captain America: Civil War, or what other footage was shown during this event
Back in August, another report claimed that Spidey may actually be wearing two different costumes in Captain America: Civil War, one of which employs the "classic blue-and-red color scheme." It was at once thought to be black and red, like the earliest incarnation of the character. That report didn't include any details about this classic Spidey emblem on the back of the costume, but Marvel 's Joe Quesada revealed at Comic Con that the new superhero suit will "blow people away." It isn't known when the studio plans on giving fans their first look at the new Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland, so we'll have to wait and see if this rumor is confirmed.
After Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland will return as Peter Parker in Sony and Marvel's stand alone Spider-Man reboot. No other cast members have been confirmed, but Marisa Tomei is in talks to play Aunt May. A rumor surfaced earlier this week that claimed Miles Morales may be introduced in this movie, but we haven't heard what other characters may be included in this highly-anticipated movie.
Jon Watts (Cop Car) is directing from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Horrible Bosses, Vacation). It isn't known when production will start at this time, but Sony and Marvel have already handed out a July 28, 2017 release date. While we wait for confirmation on this new costume detail, take a look at the emblem below, and let us know what you think.
