New Spider-Man Pictures

Emma, Emma, Emma. Does anyone else think that Spidey's costume looks like it was cut out of old basketballs?

His costume actually reminds me of the old 1970s tv show one.

Yeah! When I first saw it I thought it was made out of old Basketballs! If it turns out to be the case then, well, that's just stupid!

I really have to see it in action but I always imagined Spidey's costume to have a bit more GIVE in the fabric.

I don't really have a problem with the fabric - it's not very different to that used in the first 3 movies - but it does annoy me that the design is just overly fussy. All those little blue pieces around the fingers etc. Ditko's original design was simpler, but classic, and was revolutionary for a super hero costume in the early '60s.

...and I miss those webs under the armpits!

I have the same problems with the details as I do with Peter inventing his famous web fluid (which he also designed to be nearly impossible to reverse engineer) - just doesn't seem like something a teenage boy would be able to put together with incredients found around his house.

But that is REALLY fussy on my part.

I wish we were getting something OTHER than another origin story.
