theamazingspiderman2costumeFilming is underway for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Seeing as how they opted for combining practical effects with C.G., the set in New York is wide open. Which means set photos galore! But that tends to be a double-edged sword.

Photos have cropped up with the new Spider-Man costume in full view. Gone is the “basketball” textured cloth for a more traditional look. And speaking of traditional, the larger eyes makes the comic nerd in me (phrasing) happy.

The double-edged sword part? The suit does look a little on the cheap side, but some tend to forget that most costumes look awkward in set photos. It’s in post-production where the overall look of the costume is complete.

More set photos can be viewed on Geek Tyrant.
