If your social media platforms were on the fritz or your phone was cut off (late payments, y’all), you may have missed the news — Spider-Man has (yet) another new uniform.
And it’s so nice!
New set photos from Spider-Man: Far from Home have leaked (so many other things these days) of what appears to be our webheaded friend in red and black. It’s almost Spider Noir with more black than anything. The spider symbol on his back is white and it pops.
What’s most striking about this suit is how familiar it seems. If you have been of the comics, you remember what Superior Spider Man looked like.
All the blue is gone. The eyes, lenses, arms, and legs — all black. It’s the iconography that bleeds from the black into the red that makes this an all-time favorite among the
old farts… eh, fans who still prefer to read the comics.
Our cosplaying creator of cacophonous celebration, Alfred Murphy, has been all over these images. So, if you don’t follow him for reviews and ramblings about movies, get down on it.
Here’s what you have been missing and what Al was kind enough to share:
I love how similar it looks to Steve Ditkos original Spider-Man art! pic.twitter.com/7OvW0nEcl4

See why you need to follow all of us in the Matrix?
So why the new look with Spider-Man? Maybe it’s because his presence is opening a new phase of Marvel grandiose plan. (See that, DC and WB? A plan…)
“So much happens in [the third and fourth Avengers movies], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it, that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker?” Feige said to I09. “So, coming out two months after Avengers 4, [that’s what] much of what the next Spider-Man film will be about.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters on July 5, 2019. Tom Holland is back as Peter Parker, and the cast also includes Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson. Homecoming‘s Jon Watts is returning as director.
