Cue the responses about how it should look like that because "a teenager made it". (weird how this excuse absolves any and all design flaws despite that fact that it cost a small fortune to make)
Oh yeah, because we all know how high quality TASM1's suit was in it's set pics. And btw your "flaws" about the design or merely opinionated. The eyes have recieved VERY positive reactions, and are a lot more emotive than any of the other Spidey costume's eyes. It give it a bit of a stylized look, which is good, that's a sign of artistic integrity and something that makes it unique. And please, the only cue it takes from Raimi's suit is the raised webbing, NOTHING else. The material of the suit is clearly different from Raimi's, it's
similar to TASM's in that it's
metallic and leathery looking, less soft looking than Raimi's. It doesn't have the muscle suit, the Raimi eyes, or the Raimi spider.
