A Change In the Spider-Man Suit?

With all this talk about the new Spider-Man: Homecoming movie coming out it is hard to fantasize a change in something so perennial. We can all agree that in superhero movies a lot of importance is fallen onto the suit. Comic book fanatics want the superhero suit to look like the original in the books while movie lovers desire the suit to be more modern, and of course there are always people in-between these two sides. Movie creators put a lot of thought into the suit design and there are usually many sketches and ideas involved that never leave the table.
One of these sketches of a possible suit for the new Spider-Man has been released to the public by “concept artist and character designer, Ryan Meinerding” via Twitter. And while most agree that this sketch for what might have been Tom Holland’s suit is far from the classic blue and red suit that we are used to, this suit has a certain flashy appeal. This idea was also based off of Dan Slott and Ryan Stegman’s suit from the Superior Spider-Man comic series(http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Superior_Spider-Man_Vol_1), and so fits both sides of classical and modern costume preferences. Unfortunately this design is not likely to ever make an appearance on the big screen now that it has been released to the public but it is certainly interesting to imagine Spider-Man: Homecoming with the star in this suit. A new costume is said to make an appearance in the Avengers: Infinity War, and in the following Spider-Man movie scheduled to shortly follow Avengers: Infinity War. However, for now we will have to wait to see what new designs artists will be able to come up with and say goodbye to the suit that might have been.

Spider-Man Homecoming Reminds Robert Downey Jr. of the First Iron Man

Robert Downey Jr. has recently said that the first solo outing of Spider-man in the MCU reminds him of the first Iron Man. This may be good news for the movie because the first Iron Man is considered not just the best of the Iron Man of the series but also one of the best movies in the MCU. While there are a ton of strong MCU movies, one thing that is certain is that they don’t stand as well on their own. Another thing is that outside of Iron Man a lot of the movies in the MCU were rather lacking. Shining examples of good movies in the MCU are Captain America: The First Avenger, The Winter Soldier, and the Avenger movies.

 

Spider-Man Homecoming is looking to be a really promising movie. Probably the best Spider-Man movie since the first two Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies. The interesting twist in this version of Spider-Man is that Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., is going to be Peter Parker’s mentor. It is interesting what they are going to do to explain what happened to his uncle, Ben Parker. Given that Peter Parker is currently in high school (like in the comic book versions), this is going to play out in an interesting way. Maybe Tony Stark is going to be the de-facto Ben Parker in this series.

 

It is nice to see that some iconic characters in the Marvel universe are making appearances. They couldn’t include Spider-man right away because that character’s rights were given to Sony. However, they have worked something out so that the character can appear. Also, some fans are wondering if the X-Men are going to be able to join the MCU.
