Via SuperheroHype, here’s the first look at Andrew Garfield in a new Spider-Man costume from the Columbia Pictures re-boot.

A little the worse for wear in this pic, but not bad. A bit of a departure from the comics. There seem to be darker threads/lines giving the suit more texture and a darker hue.

I’d actually hoped they’d go for the red & black outfit from Amazing Fantasy #15.

Back in the day, printing problems made it difficult to dress superheroes in black, so blue high-lighting was used, generally in time taking over from the black entirely.

Less spiderman_AF15black on the page meant less work for the inker, as well.  Eventually, it seemed even the creators would forget the original, darker intent.  C’est la vie!
