Here's Our Best Look at Spider-Man's Fabulous New Costume

OK, so you've watched the Civil War trailer a bunch of times to see that Spider-Man shot. But Disney and Marvel have released a high-resolution picture of Peter Parker's grand debut in the Marvel Cinematic universe to give us all an even better look. (Pro tip: don’t forget to click the image to see it in all its high-resolution glory!)

There's actually a remarkable number of things to take in, considering how traditional this new costume seems. The basketball-esque texture people disliked of the Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Man suits is still there, but much finer, giving it a shinier look. Meahwhile, the isty-bitsy spider logo is very in line with Todd McFarlane's style of Spider-Man. There are little black clips all around his waist (maybe to hold canisters of web fluid?) and black bits of armour on the arms as well.

But honestly, it's the eyes that are the most interesting part of this new suit. Those moving black-and-white eyes, right out of the pages of a comic. Amazingly, this high-res shot actually shows us how they're meant to realistically "work".

Here's Our Best Look at Spider-Man's Fabulous New Costume

These aren't your Deadpool-style CGI eyes, although the effect is likely enhanced by CG trickery. The white area increases and decreases in size by an intricate series of different shutters opening or closing, just like a camera's aperture. It's maybe a weirdly over-elaborate way to bring a comic book staple to the big screen, but we can't argue with the results. Between Spidey in Civil War and Deadpool, you have to wonder if 2016 is secretly the year of animated superhero eyes in movies? All these years of inarticulate masks seem rather silly in comparison.

    Maybe it's the angle, but the first thing that stood out to me was just how stocky this version of spidey is! Did wolverine put on the wrong primary colours today?

    I think it looks great. Got the classic Spidey feel, but with enough differences for it to look ‘modern’. The other spiderman costumes always looked a bit too high-tech for me, I like the simple version that looks like it could be made by a teenager. Then again I bet in this universe Toyn helped Peter out with this costume.
    9/10, very excited to see the web-slinger in the Marvel universe.

    This movie is either going to be the most amazing thing ever since amazing things, or a disastrous narrative clusterf*ck. How many protagonists can you fit on the head of a pin?

    Oh no did they just hire the Green Lantern costume designer for Spidy? And the CGI on the eye! gawd no! they better fix it before the release!
