Now we all know that when a franchise is rebooted there are always changes. And when it comes to Superhero franchises, it usually means that costumes will be redesigned. You can almost put money on it. So now that Tom Holland has been cast by Marvel as the new Spider-man, and will be seen for the first time in Captain America: Civil War, we wondering what kind of changes they have in mind for the webslinger’s costume. And who better to ask than Marvel COO, Joe Quesada. In an interview with IGN, Joe gives us some hints as to what to expect:
“It’s 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 hard to imagine what more they can do to an already awesome costume. When pressed for details about the web-shooters, Quesada coyly answered:
“Things will be revealed as they are meant to be revealed. It’s Spider-Man, what’s not exciting about that? I can’t imagine there’s a person on the 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. He is the 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 have some great ideas. Some wonderful theories that we have all chimed in on.”
You can see the entire interview with Quesada below. But not only do we get a few more details about Spider-Man, but he briefly talks about the casting for Daredevil also.
Holland will make his first appearance as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War on May 6th, 2016.
