“Amazing Spider-Man” Costume Ditches the Crappy Oakley Eyes

Look ma! No body fat!

Remember “Amazing Spider-Man?” Came out last year and was surprisingly uncrappy?

But remember how his costume looked like he raided a Sports Authority and scalped some basketballs, sewed them together, then shoved a pair of sunglasses in there?

Can you still hear the basketballs screaming, Clarice?

Looks like the designers paid a little closer attention to their source material this time around; because the following pic made the rounds yesterday:

I’m still not a fan of the raised weblines, but the eyes are perfect. It’s what Spidey has been sporting since his inception and reflects his Ultimate Spider-Man costume (which provided a lot of the material for the reboot). Glad to see that they’re not resting on the success of the first movie and are actively working to bring the nerds to the (web-strewn) yard.

  1. Complaining about the costume is really missing the point of the blandness of TAS-M. The movie had a TON of issues. Focusing on the costume? Try the script. Or even the plot. Or action. Or a variety of other issues.

    That’s like Lucas doing Episode 2 and only fixing the colors of the battle droids.
