RevolutionSF Watercooler: Spider-Man 2012 Movie Costume

July 15, 2011

At the RevolutionSF Watercooler, we stand around not working, discussing the most important issues affecting society. Namely, how the actors look in costumes and scenes from the new Spider-Man movie with all different people where he's in high school again.

Here is Entertainment Weekly's gallery of Spidey movie photos.

Oooo! Gratuitous butt shots. I like those.

The suit looks like it was made out of my aunt's lawn chairs. -- Deanna Toxopeus

Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben? Fine. Sally Field as Aunt May? I'm not feelin' it. Sally Field is many things, including a fine actress, but what she ain't is a cute little old lady. How can your villain be really, really evil if he isn't threatening darling, sweet, cute little old Aunt May? -- Peggy Hailey

* * * * *

Yeah. That villain can't threaten Sally Field. He likes her, he really likes her. -- Matthew Bey

* * * * *

This is the one where Spider-Man sues Facebook for millions of dollars. -- Matt Cowger

* * * * *

I'm sorry. I accidentally clicked too far and got trapped in the Harry Potter pictures which were much more interesting right this second.

I like that they're (maybe?) going for the Peter Parker is really a science guy angle, where he makes the web shooters.

But the suit will look silly no matter what, such is every super hero suit.

Except for the most recent Thor, he's got a big enough personality to pull off that costume. -- Sarah Arnold

Oh, great. Another origin story. That's good, because I think there might be three monks in Nepal who don't know great power and great responsibility come packaged with radioactive spider bites. -- Jayme Blaschke

Mechanical web shooters!

1. Denis Leary actually looks like a tough guy. I like that Spidey's going up against the Lizard, he's a great villain. Now, the question is, will Osborn make an appearance anywhere to set up Gobby in a future movie?

Jayme, I agree with you, Hollywood needs to stop with the origin stories. Maybe for some lesser-known characters, we need set-up. But the Hulk reboot showed how you can do an origin quick and clean so we can then get to an actual story.

It looks like he ordered the Spider-suit from some surf shop.

"I need a custom wetsuit, please! Um, address? NOT Spider-Man, Brooklyn, NYC."

The 1970s saltshaker lid eyes are back! YAY! -- Gary Mitchel

* * * * *

Especially considering there was a big budget Spider-Man origin movie less than 10 years ago that everyone and their dog has seen. -- Matt Cowger

* * * * *

Big budget? Huh-wha? When did THIS happen? Why didn't anyone tell me? (Off to check Netflix.)

Hmm. Is this what you refer to? I guess "big budget" is relative, although they did get Morgan Freeman to co-star. Check it out. -- Jayme Blaschke
