A closer look at the new Spider-Man

MTV has revealed a new photo of the new Spider-Man costume for the reboot.  Check it out below!

The previously released photo of Andrew Garfield sans mask gave us an indication that the suit would be different for the new film.  The photo, however, shows just how drastic some of the changes are.  For example. we can now get a better look at the web shooters sticking out of his gloves.  They have also added some odd silver coloring to the boots.  Not a fan of that one, personally.  But I am pleased to no longer see the raised webbing pattern on the suit.  That always bothered me about the Maguire suit.

People have started making connections to the “Ultimate Spider-Man” comic series, citing Andrew Garfield’s slender frame as the catalyst for such comparison.  Personally, this suit seems to take some of its design inspiration from the “Ben Reilly” costume seen in comics in the mid 90s.  It is unclear if that was intentional or not.

The currently untitled Spider-Man reboot is due in theaters on July 3rd, 2012.
