Because they wanted to employ a "dark Spider-Man" theme, which they felt was better illustrated in an all-black version of the classic Spider-Man suit.

Either that or sheer laziness. I can't tell anymore.

Why mess with the original,because the original look would not look good in a movie version.

Well, I can see that this is a comic book movie, so I expect them to translate that on screen.

I dont know what to think about the new suit. I mean we havent really seen it yet. So we'll have to wait for a body shot.

If you ask me, I actually like the new suit. I've always liked it right from the official pic that sony released. I'd prefer the original black suit, but this will do fine. I don't mind the raised webbing at all, either.

Just like the alien Dark Phoenix, the Arab mastermind Ra's Al Ghul who kidnapped Robin, and the Green Goblin who wants to be the kingpin of New York City's organized crime scene?

Has anybody suggested that maybe it's not a different suit at all? That maybe Raimi's take is that the symbiote has attached itself to Spidey's regular suit, making it black, boosting his powers (maybe), and corrupting Peter? It does, after all, seem a bit odd in this universe that the symbiote would make itself into a stylish superhero suit, but more logical that the normal suit might be consumed. Could be way off, but it would explain the continuity of design in the two; I've been wondering this for a while.

^ What he said.

Also, it obviously must suit some need that the script presents.

The Spider on the chest is white, something we couldn't even tell in that VERY altered looking poster. It'll probably look very similar to the comic suit (once we see it full body), just with webbing. What's the problem with that, I ask.

That's probably 100% accurate of what we'll see.

Here's what I hope the webbing symbolises. I hope it symbolises good so that eventually, as Spidey decents into madness he loses the webbing and we'll get the suit we all know and love.

That's what I'm hoping for, what does everyone think of that?

It doesn't really matter to me. At all. It's black, white spider, probably white lenses. I'm good.

maybe it is JUST a black suit - at some point the symbiote comes in contact with it and takes THAT form, minus webbing and then when it attaches to brock it wil be a black spidey suit - therefore the black "suit" serves as a template for the symbiote to form a black venom character

Why would he have a black suit in the first place then?

Licensing. Money. Business.

The comics version is already on shelves, so is the comic book Venom merchandising. If the movie suits look exactly like the comics, Marvel could stand to make tons of money off of the movie without including Sony. Marvel has the right to make Spider-Man merchandising based on the comics without Sony, which means no sharing of monies. But, if you make a "MOVIE VERSION" of the symbiote suit and Venom, it all becomes apart of the licensing movie empire that's a limited joint venture named "SPIDER-MAN MERCHANDISING, LP" that was setup in partnership between both MARVEL and SONY.
