That way, it will look like an evolution of his first suit and not a complete change up like BB batsuit to TDK batsuit.
And so...it begins

I wonder if they'll have a reason for the suit upgrade. Not that it matters (to me anyway).

Also, keep in mind we still haven't seen the updated webshooters. I'm really excited for that...Raimi's suit didn't even have an exit hole on the wrists for Spidey's organic webs. That always bothered me.

Webb's version of the suit is VERY MUCH a Spider-Man suit in the sense that if you look at the suit without looking at the details you can't deny that it's Spider-Man. Sure, yellow eyes and sneaker shoes aren't in the comics but the general image is still very much Spider-Man. Webb said they're gonna make some changes such as bigger eyes and alterations to color and texture, but I don't think he meant that they're going to go BACK to Raimi's version and just give him bigger eyes. I think he meant that they're going to take what they did with the Amazing Spider-Man, make the eyes more mainstream (probably do away with the yellow tint), make the basketball texture look less basketball-like and give him a more vibrant red.....and you can do that without making the costume look like Raimi's suit. Also, I didn't see many complaints about the spidey insignia on his chest....and even if they decide to shrink it to match the size it is in the comics that doesn't mean they have to use Raimi's version of the insignia. This is a different version of Spider-Man than Raimi's and the best way to ensure that it stays that way is to keep the insignia from the Amazing Spider-Man just like they used a new shield for 'Man of Steel' rather than using the perfectly adequate 'Superman Returns'. Going back to Raimi's Spider-Man insignia would be a little confusing.

Anyway, I'm not gonna say that this is definitely fake. I don't have hook ups in the entertainment industry so I'll never say never but if you're going to move FORWARD with a franchise, there's no sense in going BACKWARDS. So my logic and knowledge of art and design, I can't imagine that this would be the suit they end up using the movie. The image also doesn't have any type of lettering or stamp of approving. It's just an image, so forgive me if I'm skeptical. If they end up using this suit then that's cool because it's a suit that I think would satisfy a good majority of Spidey-fans.....but I am more inclined to believe that this isn't the suit that they're going with. I could always be wrong though.

Everything in this post is completely on point.

-Aside from the eyes, everything resembles the Raimi suit.
-It is possible to make the suit the "classic design" without making it look like Raimi's.
-Why move backwards is you're trying to go forward?

very well put.

Yeah, I agree. Garfield has this great lanky but muscular thing going on and it works really well imo. I hope it still works this time around.

Im expecting maybe longer spider legs that go futher down the suit and maybe a belt that holds webbing, and noticable webshooters on his wrist

out of all the major changes, it could happen

I think its funny how people who hated the ASM suit and said how Raimi's suit was perfect are now complaining about this suit.

Yes, SO FAR, it looks a lot like Raimi's- but that suit was wonderful, right?

This seems to take Raimi's suit, and correct the faults we had with it - no thick silver webbing, no small eyes...

I would be lying if I said I didn't wish for something that hasn't been seen before, but to complain about a near-perfect suit being adapted to get even closer to perfection is dumb to me.

Raimi's webbing wasnt silver...its just when plastic that is black and shiny relect the light back in a way that makes it look silver. Take a look at the new pic...it's doing the same thing. The spider looks almost silver.

I didn't find the Raimi suit appealing. More over, that webbing looks plenty thick to me.

Eyes are great though.

I think my justifications on why I'm not feeling this suit are fairly solid to be honest...

Yes it was. Silver - shiney gray. Whatever you feel like calling it. Black it was not.

I have a feeling that the final suit will be a mix (hopefully) of the Raimi suit and the ASM1 suit, which would be awesome. It will fix the problems people had with the Raimi suit and the problems people had with the ASM1 suit. The best of both worlds

Your definition of what the perfect suit would look like might not match others.

Except that Raimi shouldn't even be part of the equation. Leave those films (and their costume choices) where they are and move on. These are brand new films where they have (but ignore) the capabilities to make bold choices. I would take the TASM costume with all it's faults and eccentricities over this contrived amalgamation.
