‘Spider-Man’ Set Photos & Video Show Close-Up Web Slinging Action

Published 4 years ago by , Updated March 3rd, 2014 at 6:45 am,

Set photos for the Spider-Man reboot are a dime a dozen these days, especially after the official first image of Andrew Garfield as the titular web-slinger was released.

We’ve seen Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Garfield as Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and now we get to see him in some fairly action-packed scenarios, like – climbing! And swinging! And standing up on top of moving semi-trucks! Not to mention my personal favorite, sitting down and taking a breather!

Most of the set photos are pretty much what we’ve come to expect from the Spider-Man film franchise. Frankly, the best part about these photos is that we get to see Spider-Man’s new costume from every single possible angle. Seriously, I bet you could put all these shots together and create a shoddy (but functional!) 360 degree diagram of the costume. Any takers?

Before we get to the set photos, check out this video of Spider-Man web-slinging from a moving semi-truck (which seems to come from the same scene as this video). I’m pretty sure Spider-Man has swung from moving semi-trucks more times than he’s kissed any lady-friends:


Now, check out the copious set photos below:

Opinions on the new Spider-Man costume vary from love to loathing to everything in between. Some people are worried it’s too bright but, keep in mind, because the movie is being shot in 3D, the colors will be dampened onscreen. Also, some people are worried that the lenses are too red, something that will likely be touched up in post.

Personally, I’m a huge fan. The truth is, they could’ve kept the costume exactly the same as the previous films and I would’ve been completely content with it, but there’s nothing wrong with adding a little flourish here and there – to give the reboot costume its own personality. Regardless, they obviously didn’t massively screw up on it – and I can’t wait to see the suit officially in motion.

The so far unnamed Spider-Man reboot, directed by Marc Webb, hits theaters July 3rd, 2012.

  1. Sorry for the ignorance, but is it actually Garfield in the suit? For that matter, was it ever Maguire in the suit?

    Surely that’d just get stunt men in the costume – it doesn’t need to be Garfield right?

    • It looks like it´s a stuntman. He seems to be a bit more buff than Garfield…

  2. Some of you guys are hating just to hate. Nothing about these shots yell “panic”. You guys get to worked up over nothing.

    1. Wait for the movie to come out before saying it sucks.
    2. Gwen Stacy was Peter Parkers first love. Not MJ. This one is more accurate to the comic origins than the first movie.

    Its ok to have an opinion but some of you are reaching to discredit this movie and it really shows. This movie may suck, it may be great. The fact is we just dont know yet. After the first spidey movie came out everyone though SONY was genious. How soon we forget.

    • I agree.

    • Alpine, I totally agree. It’s a wait and see thing. There are guys on here that already “know” that there is no way this could be better than Raimi’s film. How could anyone (unless you’re part of the film crew) know or say that just based on some photos? In fact, a person will come off sounding more than slightly retarded by making such a claim.

      And saying the film will fail just because there is no web “belt” on the costume or some silver on the boots sounds really dumb. Despite some differences from the comics, this suit still says “Spiderman”. And what the hater fanboys need to remember is that the success of this film will not be dependent on what they think. And we can be thankful for that. Spiderman, unlike an obscure superhero like Ant Man, is a huge, iconic superhero (like Batman and Superman), known and loved by MANY people who have never read a comic book. If the film delivers a great story, great action, and great acting (which a cast like this promises to deliver), then this movie will be a huge success, whether the hater fanboys show or not. Once again, we’ll just have to wait and see.

    • I am not worrying about acting ability from any of the actors, the costume doesn’t look good, especaily the eyes. What’s up with the eyes?

      • What´s up with those eyes? They look like they´ve been drawn by Spider-Man veteran John Romita sr. That´s up.

    • “Some of you guys are hating just to hate. Nothing about these shots yell “panic”. You guys get to worked up over nothing.”

      Yes and really all you have is a few pictures of a costumed character to say anything positive about as well. At the core of this picture is a rehash of what was done 7 years ago. Granted this might be closer to the ultimate storyline but it’s a re-pete nonetheless. :P

      Those that support it are just delaying the real juice that Marvel will inject into this when they get it back. Hopefully they’ll dispense with this part of the storyline as it’s been mangled to death by phony Sony. Having Sony and Fox do these properties ruins comic book movies in the long run. It ruins any opportunities for the cross over stories that happened in the comics it messes with their histories and makes for a confusing set of enduring situations. Really, it diminishes the genre, because in the future it will look confusing, like no one took it serious, and so it won’t be as enduring. It also gluts the market, and making the productions more cookie cutter like only hastens their demise as subject matter for movies.

      I guess in a way I’m on the wrong side of the issue. I should be all for squeezing out every last dollar now because it’s enriching my retirement. But like a dumb fan-boy I really care about the genre and the people that gave a piece of their lives to make it what it is today. Really were all here because we like similar entertainment. Some are just happy with what they can get and others like myself would like to get the best possible for the money..

  3. I hope it’s not the final costume. I hate the red leg stripe and lack of a full belt but i the the color and mask are fine. Bit worried about the swinging tho. It’s great that it’s practical but reminds of the 70′s cartoon intro where he kind of slowly swings in circles.

    • HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh man. I couldn’t agree with you more!

      • They´ll probably use just a few seconds of that video. Remember that scene where Maguire tells those kids not to play on the streets in Spider-Man 2? Then he jumps off and in the middle of the jump he shoots his web. That looked ridiculous! This video is certainly no reference point to what the final scene will look like…

    • ? What? What does that mean!?

  4. The new spiderman movie awesome! I love the new boots they’re awesome! If there was a costume like this in kids size twelve where do i get it!!? cant wait to see this 2012 movie!

  5. This costumes awesome could you get this in kids size twelve!!?

  6. this movie is going to be sick as! cant wait! Can you get this costume in kids size twelve, because I’m 11!

  7. I’m definitely looking forward to this movie and am definitely loving spidey’s new costume, Its frigging awesome! This movie is obviously looking better than Raimis spiderman. Good luck The Amazing Spider-man(movie)!
