    I remember Eggyman made a post not too long ago suggesting that Gwen had made the new suit for Peter and I'm on board with this idea. It would be an easy way to transition from one suit to the next and she could have some genuine reasons for creating that design. IMO the ASM suit has a 'mean' look to it...maybe more like an insect...something not so "I'm a do-good citizen." The newer suit, with the larger eyes may have more of a "friendly" appeal. I could see Gwen developing the new design to help him with his public image.

    Also, really happy they decided to transition from old suit to new suit. If Gwen ends up having a hand in the new suit design I will be one happy camper.

    Really doubt it. It doesn't look altered, it looks like a new suit. I posted about the lenses and minor colour changes... all pointing that while it's supposed to be the TASM 1 suit, it's still slightly different.

    Anyways, who cares.

    Glad that my gut instinct was right and that it's from TASM 2.

    Very glad the first suit will be making a return....I like both it and the new one, and I'm glad we get to see the transition.

    lol @ this:

    I think this is great news because that means the reason for Spider-Man’s new suit will be written into the story. In the Batman movies from the 90s Batman would just show up a different costume each time without an explanation. Christopher Nolan broke this trend in The Dark Knight by explaining why Batman needed a new suit. It’s cool to see that Marc Webb seems to be taking a similar approach.

    Ah yes, we NEED a reason why he alters the design of his suit. Because he can't turn his head, right? Oh wait...that's right, they're both just lightweight red and blue form fitting costumes with no changes regarding functionality. WE NEED AN EXPLANATION. lol.

    I respect Raimi so much for showing restraint and keeping the same costume for three films. Because lets be honest, there really wasn't any reason story-wise to change it. In this day and age of movies they change costumes/designs every film because that means $$$ for marketing and they can sell new action figures, toys, etc...

    Well I'm excited to see *some* kind of explanation. I loved that Nolan at least touched on it...

    This. I've been saying it her forever that Gwen should give Peter the classic suit in the sequel.

    I'd honestly rather have some crappy explanation that just barely makes sense as opposed to no explanation at all.

    Looks like a swat suit to me, ya so pretty similar. I'm really glad to hear Spidey will start out wearing his original costume and we see a reason why he changes it.

    I know you guys would hate it if they had the old suit a little in the beginning of the movie, then out of nowhere he's in the new suit for another part of the movie. No explanation at all. lol!

    Haha. I knew this movie was missing something. "New Goblin: Sponsored by Gmail."
    I'm very ready to see Peter's girlfriend's taking a more active role in Peter's life as Spidey. Raimi's MJ just kind of let things happen to her while Peter went out and saved the day, but Gwen has been built up as a more dominant personality already that I can't see her taking a backseat when all the action starts up. Granted, Gwen is basically just taking MJ's role in USM, but I can't say that's a bad thing.

    It looks like the bigger eyes are in this one too. Gwen doing it sounds awesome. Wasn't there some crazy rumor that he was getting stuff from China or some thing like that?

    -Or the movie could start with the new suit and we, the audience could intuit that peter made himself a new costume with a new design. It's not a huge leap of faith on the audiences' behalf there. lol.

    As it is now, any explanation is akin to: "Oh, yeah, here's X reason (suit gets torn, Gwen designs it, etc...) Peter needs a new costume" when in reality we understand it's the execs saying, "we need to sell more toys". It's just a paper thin facade. It's nothing new, but it's completely lame to claim there's no other way.

    But maybe you're right. It's cool if they have the old suit in the beginning and then transition to the new suit. It's keeping in perfect following with the emulation of Nolan's Batman films.

    No no no. Parker orders his web fluid from Oscorp. Bruce Wayne orders parts of his costume from China. Easy to mix up though.
