Last month, ComingSoon.net revealed the very first look at the new costume set to appear in next summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now, stuntman William Spencer, posting from the New York set, reveals that the design from Marc Webb’s 2012 original will also be used (via Spider-Man News). What, exactly, happens to Peter Parker’s duds that requires a brand new suit remains to be seen, but fans should be pleased to learn that the look of the new costume will likely be explained in the final film.
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds, life is busy between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
Also starring Martin Sheen, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giammatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper and Colm Feore, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014.
UPDATE: It looks like Spencer has since corrected his earlier statements and now says that the photo in question was taken on the set of the first Webb film (via Spider-Man News).
