Marvel Teases Spidey's New Captain America: Civil WarGarb

Spider-Man Costume
Early costume design for the next Spider-Man has been revealed. Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada has teased the Spidey's garb that will be worn by Tom Holland when he debuts as the web-slinger in next year’s "Captain America: Civil War."

Quesada says the costume "looks" awesome as he also sings the praises of the iconic white and straight superhero and how relatable a Peter Parker's character he is.

Speaking to IGN during Comic Con 2015, he said: "It looks awesome! I’ve seen a lot of design work that’s been done on the costume. I think there are elements of it that are really going to blow people away, where they are going to go 'Ah, that's Marvel doing Spider-Man.'"

"It’s Spider-Man. What's not exciting about that?"

Marvel announced Tom Holland would be the new Spider-Man in June after months of speculation about who had and hadn't auditioned for Marvel and Sony Pictures - who still retain the big screen rights to the character. His solo films will begin in 2017, but his first appearance will be alongside Iron Man and Cap in next year’s "Civil War."

The size of his role isn’t yet known but he certainly won't be donning the unpopular Miles Morales character in the comic books. And despite not being the most central character, extended cameo for New York's web hero is most likely.

"I can’t imagine there’s a person on planet Earth that can't relate to some aspect of Spider-Man or Peter Parker, and he is for all intents and purposes, he is Marvel’s Mickey Mouse," enthused Quesada. "He is that icon of so much of what we have was built upon, so to create that movie along with our Sony partners, it’s phenomenally exciting."

"I know Kevin Feige and his team, they've some great ideas, some wonderful theories that we have all chimed in on. What’s funny about Spider-Man is that you sit there and you're at a creative meeting and everybody goes 'Well what about this?' Yeah, of course! That’s what we should be doing, that’s Spider-Man!"

"We all seem to be of the same mind about Spider-Man, because there are certain aspects of the character that are just iconic and have been perfect since the moment they were created."
